A double chin can make you look older and more overweight, regardless of your age and overall health. David Chappell, MD, an experienced aesthetics physician at the Institute for Health Management Aesthetics in Petaluma, California, offers state-of-the-art SculpSureⓇ body contouring treatment to get rid of your stubborn double chin. Diet and exercise can’t specifically target the pocket of fat under your neck, so without the use of targeted cosmetic treatments, you may not have control of this aspect of your appearance. To get the results you’ve been looking for, call or schedule an appointment online today.
Losing weight through a combination of diet and exercise can help reduce your overall body fat and significantly improve your well-being. For some people, this includes reducing the appearance of a double chin. However, it’s not possible to “spot reduce” fat in specific areas, which is why the many exercises you’ll find online claiming to help get rid of double chins won’t work.
You don’t necessarily have to be overweight to have a double chin. A layer of fat may form under your chin because of genetics, and sagging skin brought on by aging can also contribute to the appearance of a double chin. Targeting a double chin through a cosmetic treatment is likely the most effective approach to getting rid of it.
SculpSure body contouring is a nonsurgical, painless laser treatment Dr. Chappell provides that eliminates fat in targeted areas of your choice. The FDA has explicitly approved SculpSure to treat double chins in addition to being a popular solution for removing unwanted fat deposits elsewhere on your body.
The treatment warms fat cells beneath your skin, which causes the cells to break down, the first step to your body eliminating them. Within six weeks, your body will permanently destroy these fat cells, though you may notice a difference in your appearance sooner.
SculpSure will reduce the number of fat cells in your body, and after the laser destroys the fat cells, they will not regenerate.
SculpSure is an excellent alternative to invasive treatments for fat removal like liposuction because it causes minimal discomfort and doesn’t require any recovery or downtime while still offering dramatic results.
Each treatment lasts approximately 25 minutes. Though the laser relies on heat to destroy fat cells, Dr. Chappell uses a cooling device at the same time to ensure your skin stays a comfortable temperature.
You might need a series of treatments to get the results you’re looking for, which should take between six and 12 weeks overall. Dr. Chappell may also recommend you return for a small touch-up or to take care of any additional remaining fat, though it’s likely you’ll feel satisfied with the results from your first round of treatments.
