A lot of people have been wanting to know how they can get rid of their double chins without surgery. Non-surgical double chin removal is the answer for many people who are looking for a more natural way to reduce the appearance of their double chin and restore confidence in their appearance. With this article, you will learn about non-surgical options that you can try with a professional skin care provider.
What are the Causes of Double Chin?
Double chin is also known as redundant skin and fat in the neck area. The most common reason for having a double chin is that the underlying muscles are weak, which causes excess skin to sag down and creates a noticeable fold of skin at the throat. In some cases, this extra tissue can be caused by obesity or weight gain during pregnancy. This extra layer of fats will cause sagging in your face, especially around your neck and jawline areas.
Overweight people usually have folds of skin hanging from their necks, making them look older than they really are. Other causes include smoking (which damages elastic tissue) and sun exposure towards the neck area causing loss of collagen (the protein found in our body connective tissues). There could be other reasons for having a double chin as well, and a consultation with your provider will help determine the cause of your extra folds of skin.
How Does It Happen?
It is important to note that if you would like to get rid of or reduce the appearance of your double chin, it is not advisable to lose weight alone without incorporating other procedures in order to rejuvenate the overall look and feel of your neckline area. This is because there are underlying tissue layers that can sag down with loose skin after losing weight through diet or exercise alone (unless this was intentionally done for cosmetic purposes).
What are the Available Double Chin Removal Treatments?
There are a few double chin removal treatment options that you can choose from:
Fat Freezing (Cryolipolysis)
If your double chin is caused by fat tissues, you can opt for a non-surgical treatment called Cryolipolysis. This procedure will destroy the fats in the area under your chin to make it more visible and firm up.
This treatment uses cold temperature to destroy fat cells using a low temperature controlled machine that contains a tip for precise application around the neck or jawline.
Cryotherapy works best on people with less than 30% body fat since they have larger amounts of subcutaneous fat which are easier to target, and it cannot be used effectively in people with high body weight and those who lack adequate skin elasticity. The freezing process results in temporary aches (to some extent), but this subsides after 2 days.
HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound)
HIFU or High Intensity Focused Ultrasound is a more effective and precise way to get rid of fat and tighten the skin. The tip emits high-frequency ultrasound which heats up subcutaneous fat layers to melt the fats underneath the chin area, thereby reducing your double chin. Also, HIFU promotes collagen production helping to restore elasticity in the neckline area.
This procedure is safer than other invasive treatments like liposuction because it melts away only targeted areas leaving surrounding tissues intact (if properly applied). Some patients feel slight discomfort during their first session but this does not last longer than 10 minutes per treatment, while on average 4 to 6 sessions are required for visible results.
There is also no recovery time when undergoing HIFU, and you can resume your regular routines right away. This means you can get back to the gym after a few days or even immediately after your treatment!
Another non-surgical option is chin filler injections which are used to plump up sagging skin in the jawline area and restore volume lost from aging. The fillers used for this area must be safe for the fragile tissues underneath since it is located close to bones and joints. Hyaluronic acid is one of the safest choices since it promotes collagen production as well as retains moisture inside our skin layers making it suitable for treating double chins. This treatment is also very cost-effective since a lot of treatments can be done in one session (depending on the amount of filler you need).
The best time to undergo chin fillers is when your skin has healthy elasticity so that more natural-looking results will show up. Do remember that this treatment does not remove fat or tighten the skin but only replaces lost volume, which is why it can be used together with HIFU and other non-surgical fat removal procedures for optimal results.
