Double Chin: Excess Weight, Aging and Genetics Play a Part
You may suffer from submental fullness – a condition we often refer to as the “double chin.” The chin and upper neck area collect fat that exercise or weight loss may not remedy. It can be incredibly frustrating, with many individuals citing their double chin as a cause of concern in self esteem.
Submental fullness, a medical term for the loose skin around the chin area, can be a result of weight gain or loss, genetics, or aging skin that has lost elasticity.
How we treat it
SculpSure body contouring is now FDA-cleared to reduce fat under the chin. SculpSure contouring technology is able to target and can destroy up to 24% of the fat cells in the treated area, safely in just 25 minutes without affecting the skin’s surface. There is no recovery time following treatment, so you can resume your daily activities immediately. Most patients need multiple treatments to achieve optimal results. SculpSure also boast an incredible 90% patient satisfaction rating.
We treat the double chin with Kybella, a new FDA-approved medicine with amazing results for the chin area. A synthetic deoxycholic acid is injected into your chin and destroys fat cells. Deoxycholic is a naturally occurring acid that works to break down dietary fat. Released in 2015, the acclaim and results for the treatment is overwhelming: it really works!
During the treatment, you will receive multiple injections under your chin. The exact number depends on your needs, aesthetic desires, and what you and our specialist have discussed. Once injected, the fat cells do not store or accumulate fat, therefore further treatment is not expected in this area. There may be more than one treatment due to the amount of fat stored in the chin and jowl area.
I went to Mad Peaches and got a partial profractional laser treatment. The aesthetician, Marjorie, was AMAZING. I have had this treatment before, and I was SO impressed. She was patient, detail oriented, and made the experience as comfortable and effective as possible. The results were astounding! (View more of our Yelp Reviews)
