Kybella and CoolSculpting are both incredible treatments for reducing the stubborn fat that causes a double chin. They’re both completely non-surgical options that can deliver permanent fat loss results. But how do you know which double chin treatment is right for you? In this post, we’ll compare and contrast these two options to help you decide which might be best for you.

How Do They Work?

Kybella and CoolSculpting both work to reduce a double chin. But these treatments work in two different ways.

Kybella is an injectable treatment that works by breaking down fat in the double chin area. This treatment, which is exclusively designed for the under chin area, involves the injection of deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule that breaks down fat. When Kybella is applied to the double chin, the applied deoxycholic acid works to break down the fat in the treatment area.

CoolSculpting is a way of removing fat through the use of specialized cooling technology. This treatment is applied through the use of cooling wand and can be used on many areas of the body. There is a CoolSculpting applicator specifically for the double chin area, which is called Cool Mini. When Cool Mini is used on the double chin area, it applies cooling technology that freezes fat and eliminates it.

Are They Permanent?

Both Kybella and Cool Mini are permanent treatments that completely eliminate targeted fat cells. The results of both treatments will remain permanent, provided the patient does not gain weight in the future.

FDA Approval

One thing that Kybella and the Cool Mini have completely in common is that these treatments are both safe and FDA approved.

How Long Does Treatment Take?

Both Kybella and Cool Mini require multiple treatments for best results. For Kybella, each treatment takes 15-20 minutes and 1-6 sessions are usually needed. For Cool Mini, each treatment takes around 30-40 minutes and 1-2 sessions are usually needed.

How Long Does It Take to See Results?

Neither Kybella nor Cool Mini have instant results. Because they both work by breaking down fat, the body must then clear this fat, which takes a little time. The results of Kybella can start to be seen 4-6 weeks after treatment and the results of Cool Mini can start to be seen around 3 weeks after treatment, with full results at around 3 months after treatment.
