Demolish Your Double Chin Using the BEST Double Chin Treatments

Introducing the NEW EMFace Submentum

With the rise of social media, front-facing camera phones, and Zoom meetings, people are becoming increasingly aware of their double chins. So often, people see a photo or video recording of their face from the wrong angle and suddenly are triggered by the appearance of extra fat under the chin. In fact, Allergan did a study, and a staggering 2/3 of Americans are self-conscious about their double chins and neck fat. Fortunately, countless double chin treatments are available to help remove and reduce fat under the chin, most of which are non-surgical options.

Let’s dive into the best and most popular double chin treatments, learn all about a new non-surgical EMFace Submentum treatment, and discover which one is the best for demolishing the dreaded double chin!

What are the Best Treatments to Get Rid of Double Chins


While there is a wide variety of treatments for double chins, we are going to look at four specific treatments:

  • Chin Liposuction
  • Kybella
  • EMFace Submentum
  • CoolSculpting Elite

We will divide them into the top 2 non-surgical, non-invasive treatments and the top 2 surgical or invasive treatments:

Top 2 Surgical or Invasive Treatments for Double Chin Fat

Double chin surgery is the quickest and most effective way to remove fat under the chin and on the neck. This is why double chin liposuction is known as the most popular surgery for people who want to reduce fat.

#1 Chin Liposuction

One of the most popular treatments for chin fat removal is liposuction for the submental region, called submentoplasty or submental liposuction. This treatment is a surgical option. Chin liposuction typically takes place in a surgical hospital with a surgeon. During the surgery, the surgeon uses a small tube called a cannula and inserts it into the chin in different areas. They use a gentle suction to extract small, strategic amounts of fat. Successful surgery results in a smooth, slim profile with significantly reduced chin and neck fat.

#2 Kybella Injections for Chin Fat

Kybella injections contain a deoxycholic acid formula derived from a naturally occurring product within the body capable of breaking apart fat. When Kybella injects into specific areas on the chin and neck, the fat cells’ membrane is targeted and destroyed. Once this occurs, the fat cell dies, and the body naturally processes the dead cells out of the body via the lymphatic system.

Many people prefer Kybella injections as a way to avoid chin surgery and still reduce the amount of fat cells in the chin with a simple injection.

#2 CoolSculpting Elite

CoolSculpting Elite is one of the most popular double chin treatments available in the aesthetics industry. CoolSculpting has been reducing fat cells for decades, making it an excellent solution for demolishing a double chin without surgery, excessive downtime, or a complicated recovery.

Using advanced cooling technology, CoolSculpting Elite treatments on the chin use a unique applicator created explicitly for targeting hard-to-reach areas of fat like the areas of the chin and neck. This applicator is able to freeze fat without harming skin, nerves, or muscles, resulting in Cryolipolysis. The cold penetrates below the skin surface and directly targets stubborn fat cells. The extreme temperatures effectively “freeze” the fat cell’s membrane, causing it to become brittle and eventually burst. Next, the cell dies, and the body begins a natural process of gathering those dead cells and removing them from the body via the lymphatic system.

In addition, CoolSculpting on the chin and neck areas has a high success rate and produces long-lasting, natural-looking results. Generally, most people notice their results within three months after the treatment, with some individuals seeing a difference sooner.

Double chin fat gathers for various reasons, not wholly due to weight at all. Your weight has little to do with the accumulation of buildup fat under the chin and on the nick. Some causes of double chin fat are genetics, age, and even posture.

While there are chin and neck exercises that can firm and tone this area, no amount of exercise will get rid of stubborn fat under the chin.

Is there any recovery after EMFace Submentum?

No! There is absolutely no recovery or downtime after an EMFace treatment.
