A double chin is commonly caused by excess skin and fat in the neck area, which can result from aging, weight gain, diet, and even lifestyle. However, excess skin and fat in this area is often difficult to lose through dieting and exercise alone.

Fortunately, getting rid of a double chin doesn’t require invasive procedures that involve surgery. There are other treatments available that are less costly, less risky and have fewer side effects.

Double chin removal has various non-surgical procedures. These include radiofrequency treatments, fillers, ultrasound to name a few. Each has its own unique benefits, so it is important to consult with your doctor to find the best course of treatment for you.

Radiofrequency Treatment

Radiofrequency treatment is one of the most common types of non-surgical double chin removal procedures. This procedure uses heat energy to target and tighten facial muscles so that your skin appears smoother.

The gentle heating penetrates deep into muscle tissues to promote collagen production, which tightens the area over time. Radiofrequency energy also helps to reduce muscle activity, which results in a visibly smoother appearance after several treatments.

Fillers for Double Chin

When you think about fillers, you probably imagine that they are used for preventing or reducing wrinkles around an area. However, physicians are now using filler treatment for double chins as well.

Double chin removal using fillers has a simple concept: since hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are the best at providing volume to skin, they can be placed under the skin where your double chin is taking place. This will reduce the visibility of the fat under your skin, so it won’t be so visible to everyone. Your double chin will look much smoother and you’ll feel more confident about your looks.

HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound)

This procedure utilizes ultrasound technology to heat up subcutaneous tissues without damaging the skin or nerves that lie just beneath the surface. It is used to treat different parts of the body and has been found effective in tightening up loose skin and reducing wrinkles or fine lines. By using ultrasound, collagen production is improved so that the skin may look tighter and more youthful.

It can be done on other areas such as the neck, arms, hands, etc. This is usually done on the same day as another surgery or procedure, making it a concurrent treatment. In addition, it can also be performed alone and does not require anesthesia. Patients may feel some slight pinching of the skin during the process but this will go away after a few days.

Vein Injection

Only available at select clinics, a vein injection for double chin treatment involves the use of a Co2 laser to eliminate excess fat that contributes to double chins.

There is no downtime associated with the treatment, which only takes about half an hour. Once completed, you can return to work immediately and experience little discomfort during recovery.


The treatment for this is done in four steps: preparation of the skin, injection of anesthesia, tightening and lifting through thread lift, and application of an ointment. The whole process takes about 30 minutes. You can get rid of your double chin with thread lift in two weeks to one month. It doesn’t always give you the final results, but it can be repeated once a year if needed.
