Do you look at your double chin in the mirror and wonder “why me?” You’ve eliminated your favorite snacks, stuck to that diet, and implemented a rigorous exercise routine; you’re in the best shape of your life, yet that extra fat under your chin still taunts you in your reflection.
You may have heard about body contouring to get rid stubborn fat from common trouble spots like the love handles, back, and thighs. Now SculpSureⓇ, a leading body contouring system, has been approved by the FDA to treat excess fat under your chin.
Without a knife or needle, SculpSure uses laser heat energy to permanently eliminate those stubborn fat cells and deliver the contoured profile you’ve always wanted. Here at the Institute for Health Management Aesthetics, we’ve given men and women the results they had only dreamed of with the innovative SculpSure system.
Why some people develop a double chin
Several reasons could be at play when it comes to developing a double chin. Genetics, weight, and age can all contribute.
If other family members have a double chin, you’re more likely to have one too. Losing weight can sometimes help reduce a double chin, but for some, that extra fat just seems to hang around. Aging also reduces the amount of collagen and elastin in your skin; when you lose those proteins, skin sags and loses its volume.
SculpSure is the solution
Before SculpSure, you basically had two options when it came to eliminating a double chin that was resistant to diet and exercise: surgery or injections.
While a chin tuck isn’t a complete face-lift and is typically less of an ordeal, every surgery comes with risks and potential complications. And let’s face it, no one looks forward to going under the knife. Injection treatments can also be painful, scary, and reason for pause, not to mention the significant bruising and swelling that often accompany these procedures.
SculpSure is a nonsurgical technique to eliminate that double chin for good without a painful procedure, countless risks, or a long recovery time — in fact, SculpSure doesn’t require any recovery time at all.
How does SculpSure work?
SculpSure uses targeted laser energy to destroy the fat cells under your chin. The laser’s heat damages the cells’ structural integrity, and over the following weeks your lymphatic system naturally flushes them from your body.
After just one treatment, you can see up to a 24% reduction in the number of fat cells in the treated area, and those fat cells are gone forever. SculpSure has a stunning 90% satisfaction rate; it’s a tried and tested method for eliminating unwanted fat in many areas of the body.
What to expect during a SculpSure treatment
Our providers carefully evaluate the treatment area, and as with any laser procedure, you’re given protective eyewear. You’re fitted with a band that goes around your head and is attached to an applicator that goes under your chin.
During the treatment, you may feel some warmth but you should not experience any pain. The SculpSure system also contains a built-in cooling system that ensures your skin and any neighboring tissue will not be damaged. SculpSure only destroys the targeted fat cells.
The procedure only takes about 25 minutes, during which you can read, play on your phone, or just lie back and relax. Because SculpSure requires no downtime, you can go right back to your normal activities. In fact, many women and men opt to have the treatment done on their lunch break.
You may notice results immediately, and results will continue to develop over the following weeks as your body eliminates the destroyed fat cells. Many people see significant results after just one treatment, but your provider may recommend a second treatment to optimally reduce the appearance of your double chin.
