Thousands of people suffer from a double chin, and it is a very common cosmetic complaint among both men and women. It can be a result of excess fat or sagging around the neck, chin and jawline area, which can create a small roll below the chin. For some, a double chin is caused by weight gain, but that is not always the case.
Many people will develop a double chin over time, as age can be a main cause when the skin loses elasticity. This results in the skin around the neck and face becoming loose and sagging down. Genetics can also play a part in the cause of a double chin, as well as posture which is known to weaken the muscles in the chin and neck.
Double Chin Treatments At Hans Place Practice
At Hans Place Practice, we can recommend a selection of cosmetic treatments that can help reduce the appearance of a double chin;
Using targeted ultrasound technology, VASER Lipo is a popular treatment for reducing the appearance of a double chin. This treatment uses radio-frequency to target specific problem areas such as the chin and neck. In most cases, a one-off treatment is all that is needed for successful results.
Renuvion can offer impressive results for a double chin without the need for invasive surgery. This minor treatment uses small incisions in the skin to insert a Renuvion wand which emits radio-frequency energy. This energy causes the subdermal collagen tissue to contract and boosts collagen production in the area. This is a good treatment for those who have a double chin because of sagging skin.
A state-of-the-art cosmetic treatment, ULTRAcel offers a non-surgical way to tighten the tissues around the face and neck. Handheld devices are used to supply grid radiofrequency and ultrasound deep into the skin. This process boosts collagen production and in turn reduces sagging skin and leaves a firmer finish.
For those suffering from a double chin because of sagging skin and loss of tissue around the neck and face, dermal fillers could be the treatment to help. They involve a clear gel that is similar to hyaluronic acid being injected into the problem area in order to plump and add volume.
Aqualyx has been developed as a treatment for non-surgical reduction of localised fat. It targets fat layers under the skin and uses an aqueous solution that is injected into the area. When injected to treat a double chin, it will dissolve the fat cells causing the problem.
