Kybella Vs CoolSculpting

Kybella vs. CoolSculpting To Treat A Double Chin

Many individuals are living with submental fullness, also known as a double chin. Both men and women can be affected by submental fullness, which can be caused by weight gain, genetics or aging. You don’t have to be overweight to have fullness under your chin, and sometimes diet and exercise are not enough to treat it. Today, there are a number of nonsurgical solutions to a double chin, including Kybella and CoolSculpting. Read on to learn more about these two treatment options.


Kybella is an injectable treatment made up of deoxycholic acid, which breaks down and absorbs dietary fat. When it is injected into the fat under the chin, Kybella destroys unwanted fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction of fullness under the chin.

During treatment, several injections will be made in the double chin area. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of submental fullness that is being treated. This process takes about 15-20 minutes to complete, and most patients require multiple treatment sessions to see optimal results.


CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical fat freezing procedure to reduce stubborn pockets of fat in the body. It uses controlled cooling technology to target and freeze stubborn fat cells, eliminating them for good. This treatment can be used on many areas of the body, including upper arms, abdomen, flanks, thighs, and double chin.

The CoolSculpting machine comes with many different applicators to help address each particular body area. The CoolMini applicator is specifically designed to treat the double chin, so you can see beautiful results in no time.

One treatment session usually takes about 30 minutes to complete, and most patients require multiple treatment sessions to see their desired results.

Which One is Right for Me?

Overall, both of these treatments for the double chin are noninvasive and require no downtime, making them very convenient. Plus, both of them are proven effective in reducing submental fullness with long-lasting results. The treatment that is right for you will depend on a number of factors, including your medical history. If you are interested in these procedures, a consultation is the best way to determine candidacy.
