How to Get Rid of a Double Chin: Your Best Options in 2017
March 22, 2017
For many, the aging process can certainly bring forth some unwanted changes to the body that can become frustrating over time. For example, some people might develop small pockets of stubborn fat beneath the chin and jawline due to aging, or as a result of genetics and other factors. Those who try to improve an unwanted lack of definition around the chin through diet and exercise typically discover that stubborn fat in this area is not responsive to lifestyle changes. Additionally, soft tissues and muscles in the neck may become more lax over time, further contributing to a lack of definition in profile.
Luckily, there are some viable corrective options for a double chin that will not only help turn back the hands of time, but can also promote a very natural-looking result. As the aesthetics industry continues to evolve, more and more options are becoming available for neck enhancement – and yes, some of these options do not require surgery.
So, let’s take a look at the best options for getting rid of a double chin available today:
CoolSculpting for double chin has become an increasingly popular non-surgical option for improving this problem area. This state-of-the-art technology will freeze away the fat cells underneath your chin, allowing your body to naturally eliminate them in the weeks and months that follow. With the use of controlled cooling, our CoolSculpting technicians can safely and effectively eliminate unwanted fat cells from the body. This process is called Cryolipolysis, and over time, the body will naturally process and remove these dead cells, giving you the contoured jawline you’ve always dreamed of.
Injections for Double Chin
A loss of definition in a person’s chin profile can be a result of small, stubborn pockets of fat that form under the chin. Many times, these pockets of fat are resistant to diet and exercise, leaving you with a problem area that you may want to correct. With our new clinically proven non-surgical treatment of deoxycholic acid injections – a naturally occurring substance found in the body, patients can now eliminate stubborn pockets of fat under the jawline. These injections will allow the body to process and naturally eliminates these dead fat cells, helping to create a beautifully contoured profile.
These in-office injection treatment sessions are fast, effective and safe. During your session, both you and your injector will determine the ideal treatment plan tailored for you.
Thermi® Skin Tightening
Another option for tightening the skin around the chin and neck area is the non-surgical procedure Thermi ® Skin Tightening. This devices harnesses the power of controlled thermal energy to tighten skin and eliminate small pockets of bulgy, stubborn fat. Moreover, it will safely and effectively rid visible signs of aging in the neck, improving skin laxity without the downtime associated with surgery.
While the above skin rejuvenation treatments continue to be effective in restoring your skin’s youthfulness, if you wish to maintain your results, you should be prepared in some cases to continue each treatment regularly. You may also have to repeat the treatment in the future to conserve the integrity of your skin. Based on your personal treatment goals, your provider will help to determine how many treatments are needed to achieve optimal results.
The neck lift is a rejuvenation surgery that addresses sagging, loose skin in the neck and under chin area. This procedure can improve visible signs of aging in the jawline and neck, such as:
1. Skin relaxation in the lower face that can creates jowls
2. Excess fat under the chin
3. Loose skin of the neck that can create abnormal contours
Moreover, a neck lift can only be performed surgically and, in some cases, can provide effective, more permanent results than a non-surgical neck enhancement option.
Liposuction of the neck will remove excess fat in the chin and neck area, giving you a smooth and contoured profile. For most patients, neck liposuction is a very safe and fairly quick procedure that is performed through one or two tiny incisions that are concealed beneath the chin or behind the ears. Following the procedure, patients typically wear a special supportive chin strap for about 3 or 4 days, return to work within 1 week, and are ready to return to full activity after about two weeks.
While liposuction is very effective at removing excess fat, it cannot significantly improve sagging skin, therefore, the typical candidate for neck liposuction will be younger, as younger patients typically have good skin elasticity.
