You Don't Have to Live With a Double Chin

A double chin, also called submental fat, can detract from your appearance and, unfortunately, can’t be covered or hidden with makeup like other beauty detractors. While a double chin is an extra layer of fat, even thin people can develop saggy skin and that extra fat layer under their chin. Fortunately, you don’t have to live with your double chin if it bothers you. 

At Oceans Contours at Wasatch Peak Family Practice in Layton, Utah, our specially trained aestheticians can help improve your appearance by reducing your double chin with SculpSure Submental. SculpSure is an FDA-approved, non-surgical laser treatment that helps eliminate unwanted fat cells in your thighs, abdomen, back, and chin. SculpSure Submental is a technology that is specially designed for the chin.

Causes of a double chin

Aside from extra weight, other factors can contribute to a double chin. As we get older, for example, our skin starts to lose elasticity, which can make the skin under the chin sag and look loose. 

Other factors include genetics and posture. If you notice other family members also have a double chin, there is a chance that you will develop one. As for posture, if the way you stand causes your chin and neck to hang loose, then those muscles become weak and lead to saggy skin around those areas. 

In other words, anyone can develop a saggy, double chin. If it bothers you, you don’t have to live with it.

How SculpSure can eliminate your double chin

SculpSure uses diode-laser energy to destroy stubborn fat cells. The laser energy heats the underlying fat cells while keeping the surface of the skin cool. The heated fat cells are destroyed and slowly flushed out of your system over the next few weeks.

Each session can destroy up to 24% of fat cells per treated area, although results vary. In most cases, you’ll need two sessions spaced a few weeks apart for optimal results. The procedure is quick, lasting only about 25 minutes. Side effects are minimal and can include redness, swelling, and tenderness. Most people see results within six weeks. 

The best part is that the fat cells are permanently flushed from your system. However, it’s important to continue exercising and eating a healthy diet so that new fat cells don’t develop.
