Avoid Double Chin

Would you like to learn how to get rid of a double chin? Having a layer of skin or fat under the chin is a common concern that plagues people of all ages and sizes. 

A double chin isn’t a simple term. It can refer to submental fat, which is a layer of fat that accumulates under the chin. Often, that fat accumulation is extra-persistent, which is why you can be totally fit or even underweight and still have unwanted chin fat. 

Other times, a double chin has nothing to do with fat! As we age, our skin loses its firmness and elasticity, which can lead to skin sagging under the chin.

We’ve put together this guide to help you learn about the best cosmetic solutions to get rid of a double chin, no matter its cause. First, we’ll touch on the controversial question as to whether exercise helps with a double chin, and then we’ll go over the best non-surgical double chin treatments. 

 

Cosmetic Treatments to Get Rid of a Double Chin

The good news is that we have all sorts of non-surgical treatments that can help reduce or even totally eliminate a double chin! 

For Persistent Submental Fat: Kybella 

Kybella is an injectable treatment that breaks down fat cells. It’s the only injectable solution approved by the FDA for reducing chin fat and refining the jawline. We find that it works best for those with persistent, genetic submental fat that doesn’t go away even with exercise and fat loss.  

For Targeted Tightening and Fat Loss: Morpheus8

Morpheus8 is an excellent option for reducing a double chin and improving jawline definition no matter the underlying reasons. It’s effective against both fat accumulation and sagging skin under the chin. This combined microneedling and radiofrequency treatment simultaneously constricts fat tissue while boosting collagen production, which results in tighter skin and less submental fat. Dramatic results usually require a series of multiple treatments, but it’s a wonderful alternative to surgical solutions. 

For a Firmer Jawline: Laser Skin Tightening 

If your double chin is primarily caused by sagging skin without much fat, then laser skin tightening will help. Laser skin tightening encourages collagen production within the dermis, so it helps to firm and tighten the skin. It’s an effective treatment that also helps with other signs of aging like wrinkles and jowls. 

To Enhance Jaw Definition: Dermal Fillers 

Dermal fillers can help with a double chin indirectly. Adding filler to target spots in the chin, especially, can add volume that pulls on loose skin, while also improving the shape of the face.
