What Is Double Chin Treatment and How Does it Work?

Double chins are something that many of us struggle with. They may be due to excess weight, leftover skin from losing weight, or simply due to age. As we age, the body produces fewer things that keep the skin tight, such as collagen, leading to sagging skin that creates a double chin. Thankfully, some treatments can help with this. Let’s learn more!

What Is It?

This treatment addresses the appearance of a double chin to boost self-confidence instantly. According to PR Newswire, 47% of people that responded said they were bothered by the arrival of sagging skin underneath the chin. About 49% said they feel it harms their appearance.


How you need to treat your double chin often depends on the cause behind it. The first step in treating this area is to schedule a consultation with a professional. They will help you determine why you have a double chin, which can instantly help you discover the best treatment option.


When a double chin is due to excess weight, options that remove the weight are ideal for treatment. Liposuction is one of the most popular remedies because it helps remove extra fat cells from target areas, such as the chin. This fat can then be repurposed to fill other areas or disposed of. This is an excellent idea for individuals having difficulty losing weight around the chin during their weight-loss journey.


CoolSculpting uses a method called cryolipolysis to freeze fat cells. This prevents them from growing larger and eliminates them. After the fat cells freeze and rupture, they are slowly drained through your lymphatic system. CoolSculpting is a non-invasive treatment that requires zero downtime afterward. It can be used as a double chin treatment or to treat excess fat anywhere on the body.


Kybella is another popular double chin treatment that helps eliminate fat. It utilizes deoxycholic acid. This acid naturally occurs in the body and is injected into different parts. Once injected, the acid destroys the cell membrane inside fat cells, destroying them. Like CoolSculpting, multiple treatments are often necessary to achieve the desired results.
