Don’t love your love handles? Looking to trim up your muffin top? Or do you simply hate your double chin? While fat is crucial to helping your body function normally, it sometimes accumulates in places we don’t like despite maintaining good diet and exercise. While there are different types of fat, we offer treatments for localized deposits of subcutaneous fat that is soft and pinch-able.
Fat that accumulates directly under the chin is called submental fat, commonly referred to as the double chin. Kybella injections are composed of deoxycholic acid, an acid that naturally occurs in the body. Kybella injections are FDA-approved to destroy fat cells in the double chin area.

While we always recommend accompanying fat treatment with diet and exercise, CoolSculpting offers a way to help reduce those stubborn bulges. CoolSculpting is a noninvasive treatment for stubborn pockets of fat on the body. The idea behind this treatment is to damage the fat cells by reducing temperature in the area. This doesn’t destroy the cells outright, but rather starts a natural fat destruction process by making the cells no longer viable. After several weeks, the body will remove the damaged cells from the area through the natural lymphatic process and the treated area will shrink.
