Chin Reduction Q & A


What is KYBELLA®?

KYBELLA® is administered as a series of injections to the treatment area under the chin, destroying fat cells and producing gradual results. Everyone’s chin profile is different, so your physician will tailor treatment to you. The number of treatment sessions will vary based on the amount of fat under the chin and your treatment goals.


KYBELLA® may be right for you if:

  • You’re bothered (unhappy, self-conscious, embarrassed) by fat under the chin, also known as submental fullness
  • You feel the condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are
  • You don’t want to have surgery
  • You eat well and exercise, but submental fullness does not go away.



Call or schedule online with Allura MD Laser Aesthetics to find out how chin reduction can benefit you.

What is SculpSure®?

SculpSure® is laser technology that zaps unwanted fat cells. The heat from the laser penetrates your surface layer of skin to disrupt the underlying fat cells, which eventually die as a result. Your body then naturally rids itself of the cells.

SculpSure® is used on areas resistant to diet and exercise, such as the belly and love handles. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved of SculpSure® to treat the double chin, or submental fat, in 2017.


What are the Benefits of SculpSure® Submental Treatment?

SculpSure® treatments are noninvasive, meaning there’s no surgery, bleeding, needles, or downtime involved. Other benefits include:

  • Short treatment time
  • 100% satisfaction rate
  • Dramatic results that make a notable change in the contour of your chin


How Soon Will I See Results of SculpSure® Submental Treatment?

SculpSure® can destroy up to 24% of fat in the chin area. You’ll start to notice a change in about six weeks and get optimal results in 12 weeks.


Will I Need More Than One Treatment of SculpSure® to Reduce a Double Chin?

The staff at Allura MD Laser Aesthetics recommend multiple treatments to help you achieve your desired look. You may opt for two or more treatments to get the reduction in fat you desire.


Does SculpSure® Submental Treatment Hurt?

SculpSure® treatments are well tolerated by most people. You’ll feel warmth and tingling, alternated with periods of cooling. The laser energy penetrates the surface layer of your skin and does not damage it or permanently affect its appearance. You may experience slight swelling or bruising immediately following treatment.


How Long Does a SculpSure® Session Last?

Plan on a SculpSure® submental treatment lasting about 25 minutes. You can return to work or other daily activities right afterward, so it doesn’t interrupt your day.


Who is a Candidate for SculpSure® Submental Treatment?

Most people who have a double chin benefit from SculpSure® submental treatment, regardless of skin type. Even if you have a higher BMI, or body mass index — a measure of your weight to height ratio — you may be eligible for treatment. The staff at Allura MD Laser Aesthetics can help you determine if the therapy is right for you.
