There are several options available to reduce the appearance of a double chin. These include:

  • Belkyra
  • Coolsculpting
  • Liposuction


What is Coolsculpting

The CoolSculpting®, fat-freezing procedure is a non-surgical fat-reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts through diet and exercise. The results are proven, noticeable, and lasting—so you’ll look great from every angle.

How does the Coolsculpting Treatment work?

During your treatment, a gel pad and applicator are applied to targeted areas for applicators that use vacuum action. The surface skin and fat are pulled into the applicator, similar to if you pinched a section of your skin and lightly pulled. You may feel pulling, tugging and mild pinching.

Controlled cooling is then delivered to the targeted fat, so you may feel a cooling effect. Afterwards, patients are able to return to normal activities with minimal downtime.

Risks/Common Side Effects

Common side effects following  Coolsculpting® include:

  • Temporary redness
  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Skin sensitivity

These symptoms are caused by the body’s reaction to cold temperature exposure. As the treated tissue heals, these symptoms go away gradually after a few weeks.


What is Liposuction

We do not offer this treatment at CosMedics. Liposuction is a cosmetic surgical procedure in which fat is suctioned out of the body from specific areas.

Risks/Common Side Effects

  • Risks include infection, scarring, delayed wound healing, bruising, or bleeding.
  • Issues specific to this surgery are asymmetry, numb skin, and contour irregularities.
  • Rare complications are fat emboli and injury to the overlying skin.
