If you eat a healthy diet and get plenty of exercise, you might be perplexed by your double chin. Why isn’t it responding to all your hard work? How can you spot-treat your face so that your double chin disappears?
Unfortunately, a double chin isn’t always responsive to diet and exercise. Some individuals are genetically predisposed to have excess submental fat, which is located right around the jawline and underneath the chin. Others may be victim to the aging process, where facial fat pads start to break down and travel south as a result of gravity’s pull.
All of this information might make it seem like you’re stuck with your double chin, but don’t despair! There are plenty of non-surgical options for getting rid of a double chin, including:
- CoolSculpting: CoolSculpting uses FDA-approved technology to deliver freezing energy deep underneath the dermis. This freezing energy targets and crystallizes fat cells, which are later removed by the body’s metabolic processes. CoolSculpting Mini is specifically designed to target excess chin fat.
- Kybella: Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable that uses deoxycholic acid to target fat cells located within the submental tissue. Once these fat cells are broken down, the body naturally removes them over a period of eight to 12 weeks. Most patients only need about one or two Kybella injections to see a significant reduction in their double chin.
- Ultherapy: Ultherapy is another FDA-approved treatment that uses ultrasound energy to tighten the skin and boost natural collagen production. If your double chin is a result of excess skin or drooping jowls, Ultherapy might be the most effective solution for you.
All of these non-surgical options can help you contour your jawline without requiring extensive downtime or recovery. El Paso Cosmetic Surgery offers all these treatments and combinations tailored to the patient’s needs. Your plastic surgeon will help you determine how many sessions of each treatment you might need to see ideal results.
