Whether it’s just a little sagging or a double chin, getting rid of fat under the jaw can be annoying. Dr Lohia shares how treatments can help achieve that chiseled look.
There was a time when treatments like liposuction, chin and jaw implants, and facelifts used to involve huge side effects, long recovery time, and a lot of pain. Technology has now evolved to ensure that we can get optimal results without surgery. There is a safe, painless and permanent way to remove the double chin and get sharper, sculpted jawline, and one doesn’t have to go under the knife to achieve that. But before you go ahead with the treatment you need to determine, whether it is caused by excess fat, or simply sagging skin.
With fat on the double chin
NYSlim is one of the most advanced, non-surgical and safest way to freeze away fat from head to toe. It works for all types of stubborn fat by reducing 20-40% of fat in just a single session. The results are permanent, unless of course you gain back the weight. So, you do have to work at keeping the weight at bay.
How does it work?
It is based on the Harvard-proven principle that if you freeze fat cells, they will die. Further, the lymphatic system will remove these dead cells from your body, and your natural jawline will re-emerge.
For the double chin, an exclusive mini applicator is used, which targets the small double chin and side jawline areas. The procedure also adds skin tightening, collagen stimulating and fat blasting technology in a patented combination, thereby improving results by over 30-50%. While this is highly effective, it’s important to know that after killing fat cells if you gain weight, you just add them back.
With sagging skin
Non-surgical treatments like Ulthera, UltraLift or Thermage can solve this problem. Ulthera and UltraLift are newer and more effective methods of skin tightening than Thermage, but they all are super-powered methods of non-invasively boosting collagen in a single session. The results are instant, get better over time, and can last for years. For the jawline, tightening with these technologies can be revolutionary.
Few people have a naturally weaker jawline due to a poor bone structure, so no matter how much tightening you do, the jaw skin will still sag. There is a solution for that as well. Just get Hyaluronic Acid fillers to recreate a jawline, and add some Botox to tighten up those muscles.
So say goodbye to double chin with these therapies.
