Double Chin Q & A

Why do people get a double chin?

A double chin has a lot to do with genetics. If your double chin is the result of genetics, there is very little you can do on your own to reduce it without a cosmetic procedure.

Weight gain is another common culprit for a double chin. In this case, diet and exercise can help reduce your double chin. However, this is a hard area to specifically target, so while you may lose weight, your double chin may not reduce as quickly.

Whether genetics or weight gain cause your double chin, it is a widespread complaint among both men and women. Chin fat can cause you to feel self-conscious, with 35% of adults surveyed reporting they shy away from photos due to their double chin. Twenty-nine percent of men claim they grew a beard to hide a double chin.

How does SculpSure Submental work?

SculpSure Submental is a body-contouring technology that uses light energy to target and destroy neck and chin fat cells safely and permanently that is FDA-cleared to reduce chin fat.

The SculpSure Submental applicator is specifically designed to create a contoured chin and profile. The applicator is placed on the target area under your chin and delivers laser energy that reaches a temperature hot enough to kill fat cells underneath your skin while leaving other tissues unharmed.

The device delivers a coolant during the entire treatment to keep your skin comfortable while the laser cycles on and off, raising the temperature of the fat cells. Most people report feeling a deep warmth or tingling sensation intermittently throughout the treatment, but no discomfort. The entire treatment session lasts about 25 minutes.

What happens after SculpSure Submental treatment?

The SculpSure Submental treatment requires no recovery time so that you can return to work immediately. Following the procedure, your body’s lymphatic system naturally flushes out the eliminated fat cells. You may start to notice fat reduction around six weeks after treatment, with full results visible after 12 weeks. Because the destroyed fat cells can’t regenerate, they become permanently eliminated.

It can take anywhere from 1-3 treatments to see desired results. Additional treatments must be scheduled six weeks apart.
