How to Get Rid of a Double Chin

Many people associate a double chin with excess weight, but even slender people can have one. Manhattan Aesthetics offers two non-surgical ways to get rid of your double chin. Both allow you to achieve a more sculpted neck and chin for a boost of confidence. 

What Causes a Double Chin (Submental Fat?)? 

A double chin can appear for a variety of reasons. Submental fat, the fat under the chin, can develop regardless of your weight, although individuals with more body fat are more prone to it. Genetics can contribute to your double chin by affecting where your body stores fat. Age can cause skin laxity that makes accumulated fat more obvious.

How to Get Rid of a Double Chin

A double chin is difficult to hide and can make you feel self-conscious. Fortunately, we offer two non-surgical treatments to help get rid of it. We will help you choose the method that matches your needs and lifestyle. 


Kybella® is the first FDA-approved injectable treatment for your double chin. It uses synthetic deoxycholic acid, a molecule used in digestion to break up and absorb fat. When injected into your double chin, Kybella® damages and breaks down fat cells. Your lymphatic system filters away these fat cells over the next few months. 

TruSculpt® ID

This comfortable, non-invasive method for double chin removal works by using radiofrequency (RF) energy to break up fat cells. TruSculpt® ID targets and heats fat cells, causing them to break down. This treatment can remove up to 35% of fat from targeted areas, and as a bonus, it firms and tightens the skin with new collagen production. 

How Many Double Chin Treatments Will I Need?

Getting rid of your double chin could take as little as one treatment. The vast majority of people who have TruSculpt® ID will only need a single treatment. 

The number of Kybella® treatments varies depending on the amount of fat and your body’s response. You may need between two and six treatments to achieve your desired results. In both cases, results take several weeks to become visible and three to four months before you see the full benefits of your treatment.

Is There Any Downtime With Double Chin Treatment?

Kybella® and TruSculpt® ID require no downtime. These non-surgical treatments allow you to return to your usual activities immediately. TruSculpt® ID can cause some minor redness and sensitivity that lasts a few hours to a few days. Kybella® typically causes some swelling that can last a week or two after each treatment. 

Am I a Good Candidate to Get Rid of My Double Chin?

If you have a double chin, either of these treatments might make a good choice for you. Ideal candidates have fat under the chin and good skin elasticity. Fat cells will not grow back after treatment, so results will last as long as you maintain a stable weight.
