Double Chin Removal: Two Non-Surgical Options for Beautiful Results
Even if we spend hours doing Pilates, hitting the gym or racing down the bike trail, there’s still one area of the body that can be almost impossible to tone.
While usually a side effect of weight gain, a double chin can grace the face of even the most ardent fitness buff due to age, genetics or diet – and no amount of aerobics will erase it. In the past, surgery was the only option for double chin removal, but today, you can choose between two non-invasive options that will sculpt the strong, defined jawline you desire.
Two procedures for a more contoured profile
At Ooh La La Spa, Anti-Aging & Wellness, Dr. Kristen Jacobs offers two proven procedures for double chin removal – CoolSculpting
While both transform your profile with minimal downtime, little pain and few side effects, they are delivered in completely different ways.
As one of the first CoolSculpting clinics in the Edwardsville/Glen Carbon area, Ooh La La has performed more than 1,000 CoolSculpting treatments over the past seven years to help patients eliminate their stubborn belly fat, love handles, muffin tops, and inner and outer thigh fat. Now that same cryotherapy technology can be applied to smaller areas of the body with CoolSculpting Mini.
CoolSculpting is performed outside the body, using a special applicator to target and freeze the fat cells under the chin while ensuring face and neck tissue remain at a safe temperature. The fat cells crystallize and die before they’re expelled naturally by the body. Once the fat cells are gone, so is the double chin, giving you a naturally toned appearance within two months of treatment.
Because CoolSculpting is non-surgical, you can sit back and relax with a book or video during your entire procedure and return to your normal daily activities as soon as it’s over.
For patients with smaller, more isolated double chin problems, Kybella may be a more effective option. Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable for double chin removal, and Dr. Jacobs is in the top one percent of Allergan injectors in the country.
During the procedure, Dr. Jacobs injects deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule, into the fat beneath your chin where it begins breaking down fat cells. Once the cells are destroyed, they no longer accumulate fat and are flushed out from the chin area through the body’s natural metabolism. Most patients see visible results after two to four treatments, and once the chin is defined, retreatment is rarely required.

Choosing the right double chin removal option comes down to a number of factors – how mature your skin is, the amount of chin fat you currently have, and your expectations for results. Through a CoolSculpting or Kybella consultation with Ooh La La in Glen Carbon, Ill., Dr. Jacobs can explain the similarities and differences between each procedure and help you determine the right road to take for the profile you always wanted.
