Non-Surgical Solutions for Submental Fullness

Double chin, turkey neck, jowls, submental fullness – whatever you call it, excess fat beneath the chin can be frustrating, to say the least. Accumulated fat cells in this area often don’t respond to conventional weight loss methods, like a healthy diet and exercise, leaving many longing for a sharp jawline and elegant profile. 

Thankfully, cosmetic surgery is no longer the sole solution for submental fullness. Our team of expert aesthetic clinicians in Tampa and St. Petersburg provides today’s leading non-surgical solutions for a gorgeous chin and neck: Kybella and CoolSculpting!

Keep reading for a complete run-down on these exciting aesthetic solutions. 

Kybella: The Double Chin Injectable

Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable for submental fullness in adults. Often referred to as a “fat-dissolving” injection, Kybella contains deoxycholic acid, which the body naturally produces to break down fat. When it’s injected directly into the double chin area, Kybella permanently destroys excess fat cells while preventing future fat storage in the treatment area. This means that once you receive Kybella injections, that double chin won’t return!

As an injectable, Kybella is non-surgical, virtually pain-free, and requires no downtime. Typically, we recommend our Florida patients undergo two to six treatments over six months, with apparent results after the first few sessions. 

CoolSculpting: Freeze Away Submental Fat

CoolSculpting is a unique non-surgical treatment that safely freezes and destroys fat cells beneath the skin. It works by stimulating cryolipolysis, which freezes the targeted fat cells without harming the affected skin. Over time, your body naturally removes the destroyed fat cells, leaving the area slim and toned. 

The CoolSculpting device can be safely used for submental fullness. Similar to Kybella, this treatment reduces the total number of fat cells in the treatment area, preventing future fat accumulation.
