Accumulation of fat under the chin is often caused by genetics and can be extremely difficult to reduce with diet and exercise alone.
What’s more, a double chin can make people look heavier and older than they actually are and wreak havoc on self-confidence.
Fortunately, CoolSculpting body contouring in Northern Virginia offers a nonsurgical and extremely effective way to slim your double chin.

Double Chin Body Contouring in Northern Virginia
Body contouring in Northern Virginia can help women and men permanently eliminate unwanted fat on the abdomen, flanks (love handles), inner thighs, outer thighs, hips, back, bra line, and upper arms.
It’s also approved to treat fat under the chin and jawline for a slimmer neck, more chiseled jawline, and refined profile.
In fact, CoolSculpting’s CoolMini applicator is specifically designed and FDA-cleared for double chin removal.
How Does CoolSculpting Eliminate a Double Chin?
More and more patients are seeking body contouring in Northern Virginia to address excess submental fat with CoolSculpting.
During the treatment, the CoolMini applicator gently vacuums fatty tissue and delivers controlled cooling to fat under the chin. In doing so, it selectively freezes fat cells and causes them to undergo apoptosis (cell death).
The fat cell remnants are then gradually eliminated from the body through natural detoxification channels.
CoolSculpting vs. Kybella for Double Chin Treatment
There are several differences between CoolSculpting and Kybella double chin treatment.
To start, CoolSculpting is entirely noninvasive and targets fat with a patented cooling technology and CoolMini applicator.
Kybella is an injectable treatment, comprised of a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, that dissolves fat cells.
What’s more, CoolSculpting requires virtually no downtime and produces minimal swelling. On the other hand, patients may experience swelling for up to 2 weeks following Kybella injections.
Additionally, most individuals can achieve optimal fat reduction with 2 CoolSculpting double chin treatments. However, some patients can require 3 or more Kybella treatments in order to sufficiently eliminate submental fullness.
