Many individuals struggle with the frustration of a double chin, often finding it challenging to achieve a defined jawline despite their best efforts. If you’re searching for ways to eliminate stubborn submental fullness, Cosmetic Laser Dermatology offers a range of advanced solutions tailored to your unique needs.

Why Do I Have a Double Chin?

Several factors can contribute to the formation of a double chin, including:

  • Weight gain. An increase in overall body weight can lead to fat accumulation under the chin, creating a fuller appearance.
  • Genetics. Some individuals are simply more predisposed to developing a double chin due to their genetic makeup and fat distribution patterns.
  • Aging. As we age, the skin loses elasticity, and the muscles in the neck and chin area can weaken, leading to sagging and the appearance of a double chin.

This minimally invasive procedure meticulously sculpts the chin and jawline by removing stubborn fat deposits. Our skilled dermatologists use micro-cannulas to ensure precise fat removal, resulting in a refined, contoured appearance. 


This FDA-approved, non-surgical treatment freezes and eliminates fat cells beneath the chin, offering a non-invasive solution for submental fat reduction. CoolSculpting can be repeated for more dramatic effects, with no downtime required.
