Remedies and Treatments for a Double Chin
You’ll be surprised to know that you don’t have to be overweight to acquire a double chin; they are often inherited, too; with anyone having a family history of having less elasticity in their skin or double chins being more inclined to acquire one, according to Medical News Today. Double chins, a.k.a submental fullness, can also be grown during the ageing process, but, in more cases than not, they are an effect of being overweight and are a lot more stubborn to lose than weight found in other areas of the body.
Essentially, a double chin is a roll of fat that hangs below the jawline; it prevents people from accomplishing that defined, sharp jawline that most aspire to have. It is undesirable and can cause a lot of appearance-focused insecurities, and it is becoming more common for people to search for an effective way of losing this excess fat.
There are many versions of this type of excess fat: loose or sagging skin which is usually found on the chin area, excess fat of the neck, a smaller, weaker chin, a drooping salivary gland or a sagging platysma muscle; but, whatever the reasoning behind your excess fat, there are remedies that can relinquish it. Fear not, there is also a variety of treatments for a double chin, too.
Remedies for a Double Chin
Firstly, we have the obvious… diet and exercise. If your double chin is a consequence of weight gain, you guessed it- losing weight may be your best bet at accomplishing that chiselled jawline look. There are plenty of at-home solutions that you can implement into your daily routine so that you become healthier, thus lose weight; eating a balanced diet, cutting out sugars, avoiding processed foods, eating more protein, portion control and exercising.
You will soon see from this new lifestyle that once the numbers drop on the scale, so will the roll under your chin. If losing weight isn’t doing the trick, there is always the option of getting it professionally dealt with. Back in the day, liposuction was the only solution to ridding stubborn fat from all areas of the body, but now with the advancement of technology and skill, there are other options that you can consider, and even better, they are non-surgical, too.
Here at Aesthetics of Liverpool, we are proud to offer our clients a vast array of treatments that’ll bring their confidence back to the forefront. In regards to a double chin, we have a select few solutions that are non-surgical, but still give the same outstanding results, if not better; plus, without the downtime and a lengthy recovery period, you will be on to a winner. For a tighter, sharper and well-defined jawline, consider one of these three treatments that we offer here in our Liverpool based aesthetics clinic:
Did you know that we can freeze away your double chin? Cyrolipolysis, also known as fat-freezing, is the non-surgical, innovative approach to tackling the unwanted pockets of fat found under the chin. It works by using a specialised device that exposes fat cells to a precise cold temperature, and because these cells have a very weak structure, they instantly die.
It’s not as scary as it sounds; your body pushes the dead cells through the lymphatic system, which ultimately, works to remove toxins. This procedure’s results are seen over several weeks, and it has minimal risks.
For a treatment completely designed to target unwanted fat, HIFU is a great option. Being the latest technology, this body-sculpting treatment gives you amazing results without again, going under the knife. This is especially effective if your double chin is a sign of ageing; once you age, your production of collagen and elastin slows down, meaning your fat cells take longer to burn… and even more so in stubborn areas such as under the chin.
High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound penetrates the troublesome area with a 24 line matrix of focused energy that does no harm to the surrounding areas. The only outcome being the destruction of fat cells, stimulation of the natural production of collagen and a tighter, smoother appearance of the neck and chin.
This treatment is rapidly growing in popularity in the aesthetics industry as it is non-invasive, but still gives the stubborn area of the chin that desired contoured look. What happens is Phosphatidylcholine, Deoxycholic Acid & Benzyl Alcohol is injected into the subcutaneous fatty tissue by using a needle.
This may sound very daunting, but the solution weakens the membrane of the fat cells, encouraging the release of natural enzymes. In other words, your fat will be dissolved- and the cells will exit the body naturally! As this is a non-intrusive solution, there are also minimal side effects.
