A double chin can undermine your confidence in your appearance. Unfortunately, fat under the chin is stubborn and persistent despite efforts to reduce it, such as exercise and dietary changes. Even when someone loses weight, a double chin often remains. There are now non-surgical options to reduce the appearance of a double chin, such as injections of KYBELLA®, at our clinic in Houston, Texas.
The best treatment to reduce a double chin depends on the skin’s condition and the reason for its appearance. Fat under the chin (submental fat) is the most common reason someone gets a double chin. Fat sometimes accumulates in that area as you age, but even younger men and women may be genetically predisposed to developing double chins. If sagging skin leads to the appearance of a double chin, then skin tightening treatments are likely appropriate. Here are our treatment options:
- CoolSculpting® is the first noninvasive treatment approved by the FDA to reduce fat below the chin. The CoolMini™ applicator’s unique design fits snugly under the chin, and it can produce the results you desire in 1 or 2 treatments.
- KYBELLA® injections are the first nonsurgical treatment approved by the FDA to reduce fat under the chin. We are among the first in the Houston area to offer KYBELLA.
- Thermage® treatments tighten skin on the neck using radiofrequency energy to immediately firm up existing collagen and stimulate new collagen production.
- Ultherapy® uses ultrasound waves to deliver energy deep into the skin to tighten the jowls and contour under the chin.
During your consultation, we will help you determine which treatment will best help you achieve your desired improvements.
