Excess of fat on the sub-mental area may result due to increase in weight, age or genetics. In an era where we are concerned about our looks. There are simple and easy ways to get rid of double chin.
- Cryolipolysis or fat a freeze technology now has an applicator specifically designed to treat sub-mental fat. It is placed in the sub-mental area. Fat is pushed into the applicator using a vacuum. Lateral cooling plates cool the tissue, once the fat is treated with the chin applicator, the body metabolizes the fat which is later excreted to the urine in a span of 4-6 weeks. The 1-3 session may be performed 4-6 weeks apart for the best results. Side effects Are minimal and range from mild pain, bruising which settles within a few days.
- Injection Lipolysis: Sodium deoxycholate is an enzyme which melts fat when injected into the sub-mental area it gives good results as the fat content here is localized in a small volume. 3-4 sessions are performed every 10-15 days for best results. Side effects include mild pain, bruising and local tenderness.
- HIFU: High Intensity Focused Ultrasound uses focused ultrasound to targets collagen and works on SMAS (Submuscular aponeurotic system) and causes controlled thermal injury which in turn causes collagen lightening and shun-age and improves skin sagging. The ultrasound energy is also absorbed by fat and leads to local fat reduction.
- Dermal Fillers: We may wonder how dermal fillers may be helpful for double chin reduction. Injecting dermal fillers on the chin and marionette line forms a curtain and helps in reducing the appearance of sub-mental fat. When dermal fillers are injected on the chin and the marionette lines ether is enhancement is the appearance of the chin which improves in projection and leads to meet contoured jawline. This improvement in appearance hides away the projecting sub-mental fat.
