How The treatment Works
At Cosmetic Laser Solutions we offer two choices for chin fat removal. AGNES RF Laser is the optimal non-surgical laser treatment for double chin fat removal. The other option for double chin fat removal is with Kybella®, which is a FDA-approved injectable treatment.
Both options are for adults with sub-mental (under chin) fullness and will permanently destroy fat cells to improve your profile. Kybella is composed of sodium deoxycholate solution. AGNES is a FDA-approved device that liquefies fat with a radio-frequency (RF) probe.
How does Kybella® Work?
For Kybella® the treatment involves multiple injections of the Kybella® solution into the targeted area to be treated. The cells are ruptured and destroyed so they can no longer store or accumulate fat. No further treatment is expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
For optimal result, treatment may require 2 to 3 sessions. Each treatment session includes multiple small injections under your chin area and can take 20-30 minutes.
For both methods the fat is then processed naturally by the liver and excreted.
How does AGNES RF Laser Work?
Utilizing AGNES RF technology, a micro-insulted needle targets and eliminates fat deposits and tightens the skin simultaneously. If you do not want any incisions, this is an optimal choice for reducing under chin fat. The beauty behind this method is the ability to not only de-bulk the area but also to contour and reshape should you desire a more defined chin or jawline area. Additionally, heat from the radio frequency procedure stimulates the collagen, causing it to contract and tighten, while erupting stubborn fat cells.
We highly recommend Agnes RF as an alternative to the Coolscuplting CoolMini treatment. The Coolmini is limited by the Coolsculpting handpiece size. We do not have any limitations to the size of the area being treated and we can tighten the skin as well.

Frequently Asked Questions About Double Chin Fat Removal
When will I see results from a chin fat removal treatment?
After a fat removal treatment it generally takes 10-14 days for swelling to subside. At this point the results will begin to appear and continue over the next 4-6 weeks. This gradual improvement allows for a more natural transition to the new looking you.
What are the possible side effects of a Kybella or AgnesRF treatment?
You may experience redness, swelling, bruising, itching, and bearable discomfort. These side effects can last 3-10 days.
How many chin fat removal treatments will I need?
The exact number of sessions will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile. Agnes RF technology may need 1-3 sessions depending on fat layer thickness. Kybella best results are with 3-4 sessions spaced approximately 4 to 6 weeks apart.
How much does it cost to get rid of fat under the chin area?
Unlike the cost for surgical procedures which can run $7,500 + depending on hospital expenses, many patients prefer a non-invasive option like Kybella or the Agnes RF Lipo Procedure. Although other devices like Cool-Mini are available it is much more limiting in sculpting near the jawline/chin area. If you need skin firming and tightening, we recommend combining AgnesRF Lipo with Scarlet RF Microneedling.
Is the fat permanently gone with a Kybella or AgnesRF treatment?
Yes! Both treatment options permanently remove the fat in the area treated.
Related Areas of Treatment
AgnesRF is an innovative device that can target other face areas that were previously only treatable with surgery. For many people, difficult problem areas include such areas as under-eye bags, under and upper eye wrinkles, jowl lift and contouring, jawline definition, festoon removal, sebaceous hyperplasia and syringoma are some of the areas that can be treated with AgnesRF to transform your skin from the inside out.
AgnesRF can also treat skin areas that have an over production of oil. With selective destruction of some sebaceous oil glands it permanently will reduce oil production in that area.
