If you are like millions of Americans, you are bothered by the extra fat taking up residence in your chin. In fact, thanks to the Zoom Boom, more people are bothered by this feature than ever before.

Luckily, you don’t have to just accept your double chin. With med spa treatments on your side, you can remove the excess fat and possibly achieve the look you desire. All you need to do is choose the right treatment for you.

CoolSculpting vs. Kybella

When seeking out med spa treatments for a double chin, there are really just two options to consider: CoolSculpting® and Kybella.

These treatments have their similarities. Both treatments:

  • Permanently destroy fat cells
  • Rely on the body to naturally flush out these destroyed cells
  • Can target small areas of fat
  • Require 2 or more sessions
  • See results after about 3 months

But the question is which is better? And for this, our vote and the feedback from our patients is CoolSculpting for a double chin. Ultimately, both of these treatments will help to eliminate excess chin fat, but CoolSculpting is the more comfortable way to accomplish this and our patients prefer it.

While they have many similarities, the differences between treatments mean CoolSculpting is usually the right choice for double chin treatment.

Kybella is administered via injections, which can number in the twenties. Afterward, it is common to experience a good deal of discomfort. CoolScultping, on the other hand, uses a suction-based applicator to cool and destroy the cells. While it can feel funny, it is not associated with pain.

There is also the number of treatments to consider. CoolSculpting can often achieve the desired results in just 2 sessions, while Kybella usually requires 4. This means that in terms of comfort, time and cost, CoolSculpting comes out the winner.
