Having a double chin can be genetic, but is often down to ageing as skin becomes loose and sags. And no matter how much you try double chin exercises or diet, it can be so difficult to get rid of.
Treating this area of stubborn fat and sagging skin can be achieved effectively – and without resorting to double chin surgery. Find out how CoolSculpting under chin or our chin fat removal treatment (the CoolMini™ from CoolSculpting®) combined with skin tightening and lifting treatment through Ultherapy® can help you achieve the appearance that you’ve always wanted. In this case, depending on the patient, it may be that treatment only with Ultherapy is required. To book an appointment, contact our clinics in London and Buckinghamshire!

If you suffer from the appearance of having a fat neck, then our double chin treatments can help. Many of our patients are interested in neck fat removal and not just fat removal across their double chins. Our CoolMini applicator is perfect to stimulate fat removal in this area as it has been specially designed to fit directly under your chin and also around your mid and lower neck.
Ultherapy can also be used to complement neck fat removal by lifting and tightening flabby or sagging skin across this key zone.
Double chin treatment may be at its most effective when combining CoolMini fat freezing technology with Ultherapy skin tightening technology. However, depending on the patient, it may be that treatment only with Ultherapy is required. During your consultation, we can discuss a tailored treatment plan that will meet your specific needs.
CoolMini results can start to be be seen in just 4-6 weeks with optimum results seen between 12-14 weeks. ¹
With Ultherapy, there is an initial lift after their treatment and real results can become more apparent over three to six months and will last up to a year or more.
Your medical practitioner will give you all the advice you need.
Once the treated fat cells are crystallised (frozen), they shrivel and are naturally reduced from the body. This results in a noticeable and long lasting reduction in the unwanted fat bulge.
As long as you stay healthy, the long-term results should remain stable.
Patients treated with Ultherapy still have fresh young collagen even after a year. Although nothing can put a stop to the ageing process, Ultherapy touch-up treatments will keep rebuilding collagen.
Every patient is different and your medical practitioner will give you all the advice you need.
At the initial stage of treatment with the CoolMini, you will experience a firm pulling sensation on your double chin being treated. The cooling process should then numb the area after a few minutes. ¹
With Ultherapy, there may be slight redness for up to an hour or so afterwards, and a small percentage of patients may have slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch. This effect is mild and only temporary.
We will explain everything in detail and make you feel at ease and relaxed on the day of your treatment, knowing you’re in safe, expert and medically qualified hands.
CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared cryolipolysis fat freezing treatment. It safely delivers controlled cooling to gently and effectively target and reduce unwanted fat cells beneath the skin’s surface. ¹
With over seven million CoolSculpting treatment cycles performed worldwide, the treatment is proven to be safe and effective for non-surgical fat reduction. ¹
The Cosmetic Skin Clinic has been voted the Number 1 clinic in the UK & Western Europe for CoolSculpting for the last five years, and with a dedicated team of Coolsculpting body contouring practitioners, we pride ourselves on an outstanding service with superlative results for reducing unwanted double chin fat. All of our dedicated expert practitioners have graduated from CoolSculpting University and Dr Tracy Mountford is the only key opinion leader and medical advisor for CoolSculpting by Zeltiq in the UK.
The ultrasound imaging technology in Ultherapy has been safely used in medicine for over 50 years. Over 1 million Ultherapy treatments worldwide have been performed so far, and the procedure is approved for safety by the FDA.
Because CoolSculpting with the CoolMini is carried out without the need for surgery, there is little downtime and most patients can return to their normal activities right away. ¹
A little redness may occur but this usually disappears very quickly.
With Ultherapy treatment, there may be slight redness for up to an hour or so afterwards, and a small percentage of patients may have slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch. This effect is mild and only temporary.
Some people find double chin fat freezing treatment uncomfortable during the first 5-15 minutes when the CoolMini applicator freezes the skin and fat, but very few patients have reported experiencing sensation during treatment and all have said that it subsided quite soon.
With Ultherapy, discomfort may only happen when the ultrasound energy is delivered, but this is a temporary sensation and a positive sign that the collagen-building process has been initiated. A recent upgrade, Ultherapy Amplify, has been introduced which has been found to be more comfortable.
CoolSculpting is ideal for men and women. We provide a discreet service for all our patients.
