No matter how well you take care of your skin, there’s a good chance that at some time, some part of your face is going to betray you. And for a lot of people, the first feature to show the inevitable signs of aging is the chin and neck area — sometimes lovingly (or not-so-lovingly) referred to as the wattle. It used to be the only way to get rid of a sagging chin and neck was to undergo liposuction surgery. And while liposuction may be effective in getting rid of under-chin fat, it’s still surgery — and that means it comes with the same risks and costs associated with any other type of invasive procedure. Plus, the liposuction technique doesn’t always offer a smooth, consistent result — and the recovery time can be substantial.

Fortunately, all that’s changed as noninvasive treatment options like SculpSure® have proven to be both effective and safe in treating stubborn deposits of chin fat. Already a popular treatment for “zapping” unwanted fat in the belly and thighs, SculpSure recently earned FDA clearance for safe, effective treatment of submental fat. That means whether you have the beginnings of a double chin or an all-out turkey neck, SculpSure can help you get the results you’re looking for.

Double chins: What’s causing that wattle?

Before delving into how SculpSure works, it’s important to know why you’ve got that double chin in the first place. We all have natural fat padding under the chin area. And when we’re young, the natural elasticity of our skin helps hold that fat in place.

But over the years, our skin loses a lot of that elasticity, and combined with gravity, that once-firm chin area starts to drift downward. Not surprisingly, the problem is compounded if you’ve had significant weight fluctuations. Even our genetics play a role — if your relatives had double chins, you may be more likely to have one too.

SculpSure to the rescue

So how does SculpSure work to get rid of stubborn chin and neck fat — without surgery? It’s all thanks to lasers. The SculpSure device is designed to emit laser energy in controlled, focused bursts that penetrate beneath the skin to the layers where fat cells are located. Then the focused heat breaks down fat cell walls, essentially liquefying the fat below the skin’s surface.

The wavelengths used in SculpSure treatments are designed to target just the fat cells, so skin and other surrounding tissues are protected from harm. Once the fat is liquefied, your body’s own “built-in” waste disposal system carries the debris away over time, leaving you with a slimmer profile. And because SculpSure destroys those fat cells, they’re gone for good. No more turkey neck.

What to expect during treatment

Our specialists perform the SculpSure treatment right in our office. First, we’ll assess your chin and neck and mark the treatment area.  The SculpSure device uses special headgear that’s attached to the applicator, which is secured under your chin. Once the headgear and applicator are in place, you can sit back and relax while the applicator does its job. SculpSure treatment takes about 25 minutes, and once your treatment is complete, you can go about your regular routine as there’s no downtime.

Most people see initial results in about six weeks as the skin in the area “remodels” to the new contours. Optimal results usually are visible at about 12 weeks, once your body finishes carrying away the remaining waste.
