CoolSculpting for Double-Chin Treatment

If you’re thinking of getting rid of your double chin, here’s why we no longer recommend Belkyra (aka Kybella) injections for your double chin. We find that CoolSculpting offers several distinct advantages over Belkyra.

Why Choose CoolSculpting for Double-Chin over Belkyra (aka Kybella) or Liposuction


CoolSculpting offers a non-surgical approach to fat reduction, completely avoiding the need for injections or needles. This is particularly appealing to individuals who may be apprehensive about injections or have a fear of needles.


CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure, meaning it does not require any incisions, injections, or anesthesia. The treatment is performed on the surface of the skin, targeting fat cells underneath without the need for surgical procedures.

No Downtime

Unlike surgical options, CoolSculpting requires no downtime or recovery period. Patients can typically resume their normal activities immediately after the treatment, making it a convenient choice for those with busy schedules.

Minimal Discomfort

CoolSculpting is designed to be well-tolerated, and many patients report only minimal discomfort during the procedure. While you may experience sensations of pulling, tugging, or cold at the treatment site, these sensations are temporary and subside as the area becomes numb.

Natural-Looking Results

CoolSculpting provides gradual and natural-looking results. The fat cells targeted during treatment are gradually eliminated by the body’s natural processes, allowing for a smoother transition and a more harmonious appearance as the changes become noticeable over time.

Plus, we can target multiple areas in a single session, while Belkyra is mainly used for submental fat reduction.

Why a Gradual Change in Appearance is Better

There’s an important psychological component to changing our appearance. This is not often talked about, but when it comes to changing our appearance, a gradual change is often preferred to sudden transformation.

Firstly, a gradual transformation allows for a more natural and subtle outcome, avoiding an abrupt and obvious change that may draw unnecessary attention. This approach allows you – and those around you – to become accustomed to the changes and feel more comfortable in your evolving appearance.

Secondly, a gradual transformation gives your self-esteem and self-image time to adjust and align with the changes, reducing the risk of experiencing emotional or psychological challenges that can accompany rapid transformations. The parallel we can draw is the lottery winners not knowing what to do with their good fortune and often squandering away all the wins. If the change in appearance is too sudden, you may sabotage your treatment results by maintaining an unhealthy lifestyle, all in order to revert “to the mean”, the self-image that you’re used to.

Moreover, a gradual approach allows for fine-tuning and adjustments along the way, ensuring that the final result meets your expectations. It also allows for a more personalized and tailored transformation that takes into account your unique features and goals.
