All of that hard work and exercise can feel like a waste if you still retain stubborn fat under your chin. The fact is that there are virtually no exercises that can burn double chin fat. This becomes especially problematic after age 30 when our skin laxity increases due to the gradual loss of collagen. If you’re looking for an effective way to eliminate troublesome fat under your chin, our KYBELLA®, and CoolSculpting® treatments can help. These treatments are designed to destroy fat cells in target areas, giving you results without the need for downtime or any surgical procedures.
What Causes This Issue?
Submental fat can collect under your chin after significant weight gain. When we consume more calories than we use as energy, the excess gets stored as fat, and that fat can end up just about anywhere. The amount of fat you have in a specific area is dependent on your genetics and body structure. Some people may store more fat in their bellies, while others may develop double chins. These pockets of lingering fat can not only be annoying but can cause us to feel self-conscious about ourselves as well.
Treatments for a Double Chin
At BodyLase®, we offer both KYBELLA® and CoolSculpting® for the treatment of submental fat. KYBELLA® effectively destroys the fat cells that have accumulated under your chin. This injectable treatment results in a noticeable reduction in the fullness of your face and a more defined profile. CoolSculpting® is not an injectable treatment; rather, it is a device that uses cooling technology to freeze fat and kill fat cells. In either case, these treatments can provide effective results with little, if any, downtime post-procedure. Combine both treatments for best results!
