Meyer Clinic: feel better, look better

Double Chin

Seeing a double chin in the mirror can cause a person to feel self-conscious.

Treatment options

A double chin is caused by an extra layer of fat that develops beneath the chin. This can be as a result of a number of factors including age, diet and genetics.

There are very few options to reduce the appearance of this submental fat. Diet and exercise may help, especially if the double chin is as a result of weight gain.

At Meyer Clinic, we treat patients with double chins using CoolSculpting®, which targets stubborn areas of fat through the process of cryolipolysis (fat freezing), and Ultherapy®, a procedure which uses ultrasound to stimulate the production of collagen that in turn lifts and sculpts. These can be used in isolation or in combination to achieve visibly improved results.


This FDA-approved, non-surgical treatment can significantly help reduce submental fat (the area under the chin). Using the specially-adapted CoolMini® handpiece, our trained therapists can deliver controlled cooling to the double chin area that will permanently destroy fat cells. CoolSculpting® results can show in as little as four weeks, with treatment showing its full effect at three months.


Each Ultherapy® treatment is tailored to the individual. The leading skin lifting and tightening treatment uses ultrasound technology to stimulate the production of new collagen. This treatment works particularly well on the area under the chin, tightening and lifting the skin, giving a more sculpted appearance.

Nutritional Therapy

Fluctuations in weight can lead to a double chin developing. The skin, when well maintained, is elastic, but with constant weight gain and weight loss, it can become stretched and lax. If you’re a yo-yo dieter, a consultation with one of our Nutritional Therapists can help you work towards maintaining a healthy weight.
