Best Double Chin Reducer

Best double chin reducer

Excess fat under the chin, commonly known as double chin, has always been perceived as a source of embarrassment; not only affecting the appearance but also lowering confidence and self-esteem.

This makes finding feasible solutions crucial, yet most options involve surgery or painful procedures that may leave scars and create additional issues in that area.

Today’s blog by Syra Aesthetics is dedicated to exploring the best possible double chin reducers.

What Forms Fat Under Chin?

There are several factors that lead to the development of fat under chin or submental fat – the most common causes include:

  • Genetics: Genetic predispositions may lead to the accumulation of fat beneath the chin, irrespective of overall body weight. 
  • Weight Gain: Excessive weight gain can result in fat buildup in various body areas, including under the chin. 
  • Aging: With age, skin loses elasticity and the muscles beneath the chin may weaken, causing skin sagging and the appearance of a double chin. 
  • Poor Posture: Poor posture can weaken neck and chin muscles, contributing to the formation of a double chin. 
  • Lack of Exercise: Neglecting to exercise neck and chin muscles can also lead to muscle laxity and fat accumulation. 
  • Fluid Retention: Fluid retention in the body, often due to factors like dehydration or excessive sodium intake, can cause swelling under the chin, making it appear larger.

Treatments for Reducing Double Chin/Submental Fat

Kybella (Deoxycholic Acid Injection):

Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable treatment used to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin. The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps with breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in submental fullness and a more defined jawline.

CoolSculpting (Cryolipolysis):

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat reduction procedure that utilizes cryolipolysis, a controlled cooling technology, to target and eliminate stubborn fat cells. During a CoolSculpting treatment, a device is placed over the targeted area, cooling the fat cells to a temperature that triggers their natural death without harming the surrounding tissues. Over time, the body naturally processes and eliminates the dead fat cells, resulting in a more sculpted appearance in the treated area.


Liposuction is a surgical procedure used to remove excess fat deposits from specific areas of the body, such as the abdomen, thighs, hips, buttocks, arms, or neck. During liposuction, a thin tube called a cannula is inserted through small incisions in the skin, and the excess fat is suctioned out using a vacuum or syringe attached to the cannula. Liposuction can help improve body contour and proportion by removing stubborn fat that is resistant to diet and exercise.

Ultherapy (Ultrasound Therapy):

Ultherapy is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses ultrasound technology to lift and tighten the skin on the face, neck, and chest. During an Ultherapy treatment, focused ultrasound energy is delivered deep into the skin, targeting the underlying layers responsible for collagen production. This energy stimulates the body’s natural healing process, leading to the production of new collagen and elastin, which results in firmer, more lifted skin over time.

Radiofrequency treatments (e.g., Thermage):

Radiofrequency treatments, such as Thermage, utilize radiofrequency energy to heat the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production and tightening existing collagen fibers. This non-invasive procedure can be used to improve the appearance of sagging or loose skin on the face, neck, abdomen, arms, thighs, or buttocks. By promoting collagen remodeling, radiofrequency treatments can result in smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin without surgery or downtime.

Best Double Chin Reducer

Kybella has emerged as the top choice among cosmetic treatments for reducing submental fat, primarily due to its non-invasive nature and effectiveness. Unlike surgical alternatives such as liposuction, Kybella offers a minimally invasive solution through injections of deoxycholic acid, which specifically targets and dissolves fat cells beneath the chin. 

This approach not only sidesteps the risks and recovery associated with surgery but also allows for precise sculpting of the jawline without leaving any visible scars. Moreover, Kybella treatments entails minimal downtime, making them exceptionally convenient for individuals seeking to enhance their chin profile without disrupting their daily activities. Its proven results with safety and convenience makes it the best double chin reducer amongst all.
