Double Chin Treatments: What Works and What Doesn’t

Woman after Kybella injections Many people have a double chin and want to get rid of it. That explains why so many treatments promise to slim, sculpt, and shape the jawline. Here, our team digs into what works and what doesn’t so you can save time in pursuit of your cosmetic goals.

Targeted Exercises

You can’t control where your body stores excess fat. Unfortunately, you can’t control where you lose it, either.

Targeted fat loss, also known as spot reduction, is a type of exercise meant to burn fat in specific areas. However, there’s little evidence to support that it works. Try doing double chin exercises like tongue stretches and jaw juts if you want — just don’t put much stock in them.

Weight Loss

People used to associate double chins with being overweight. Today, we know that everything from genetics to facial structure can cause this pocket of excess fat.

Anyone can have a double chin regardless of how much they weigh. Even people who are very thin struggle with an unwanted protrusion that distorts their jawline. For that reason, losing weight may not be enough to make your double chin smaller or get rid of it.


CoolSculpting® Elite is an effective and non-invasive fat reduction treatment. It uses cooling technology to eliminate up to 20-25% of treated fat cells. Most patients need two or three sessions to achieve their desired results.

Fortunately for those who struggle with submental fullness, the area under the chin is one of nine FDA-cleared treatment zones. Our team uses a smaller applicator specifically designed for under the chin to target this problem spot.


If you prefer to treat your double chin with a series of injections, Kybella® is a great option. As the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that permanently eliminates unwanted fat under the chin, Kybella can gradually improve your profile.

No two patients have the same double chin. Your Kybella® treatment plan will be tailored to meet your unique needs.
