Topical Creams to Reduce Fat?
Are there creams for fat reduction?
Unfortunately there are no such creams.
The choices for fat reduction are dieting, exercise, liposuction, BodyTite, Kybella and several non-surgical options such as BodyFx or UlraShape.
I ope that helps and best regards, Dr. Sapijaszko.

No cream will reduce fat
No. No cream will reduce fat, not matter what the packaging says. Kybella is an injectable, not a cream, that permanently dissolves the fat in the treatment area.
No Fat Reduction Creams; But Double Chins Can Be Dissolved
Unfortunately, there is no cream on the market or in development that can melt fat. If you would like to eliminate your double chin without surgery, however, you have more than one option. The simplest is injections of Kybella (composed of deoxycholic acid) directly into the submental fat. Kybella dissolves the fat permanently. You may need more than one treatment, depending on how large the fat deposit is. The CoolMini applicator from CoolSculpting can accomplish this, too. It also needs multiple treatments. Please consult a board-certified dermatologist to find out which technique will work best to eliminate your double chin.
Kybella Cannot Be Applied Topically
Kybella is composed of deoxycholic acid, a component of bile, and dissolves fat when it is injected into the submental area. It cannot be applied topically, as it would not be able to reach the fat through the skin. Unfortunately, there are no other products that can dissolve fat through skin. Therefore, it is unlikely that there will ever be a cream or lotion that you can use to eliminate a double chin. However, Kybella is a very fast procedure that can be performed in the office within about 5 minutes. Depending on the amount of fat you have, you may need more than one session. As pointed out by my collagues, you could also look into other methods of eliminating the fat, such as liposuction or CoolMini. Please consult with a board-certified dermatologist to find out how Kybella can help you.
Kybella vs Coolmini vs Liposuction
There are multiple factors that go into answering this question...
If there is a lot of fat, liposuction is your best bet. This can be done in-office under local anesthesia.
If surgery is not something you are comfortable with, Coolsculpting would be your best bet financially... as long as the Coolsculpting applicator fits and you are okay with more time to see full results (than liposuction). If your jaw is too small or the amount of fat too little, the CoolMini may not fit.
Lastly, if you have a small amount of fat and the CoolMini applicator doesn't fit your face, I would go with Kybella. There is a significant recovery period with Kybella and the product is not cheap. That is why I reserve it for people with a small amount of submental fat.
All three will give you some skin tightening.
