The double chin doesn’t play by the rules. This outlaw of the aesthetic world is notorious for many reasons:
- It affects millions of innocent bystanders.
- It rarely correlates to weight.
- It has a mind of its own.
- It’s impossible to tame with exercise or diet.
Now, for the good news: You can finally fight back and reclaim your youthful profile! Thanks to modern advancements in aesthetic medicine, you can reduce chin fat without surgery. Here’s a look at a few clinically proven options at CNY Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery:
Evoke RF Skin Tightening
Evoke is a revolutionary skin tightening treatment that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to sculpt and define lax skin on the chin, neck, jowls and cheeks. We love Evoke because it’s totally non-invasive and involves no downtime. Best of all, Evoke helps revitalize the lower face and neck, which can be tricky areas to treat as we age. If you’re looking to add definition and tighten up your chin area (or jowls, cheeks, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, neck or jawline), then Evoke may be a technology worth considering during your next consultation.
You’ve probably heard of Kybella by now. It’s the first injectable to be FDA-approved for reducing submental (chin) fat. Kybella’s secret ingredient is a modified form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring fat-busting molecule in the body. During treatment, we gently administer a series of quick injections under your chin. For your best results, you’ll need to schedule a series of treatments. During your consultation, we’ll help you figure out the regimen that works best for your goals. Keep in mind that Kybella causes swelling, which is a positive sign that the deoxycholic acid is doing its job, eating away at those unwanted fat cells. You’ll start noticing improvements as the swelling subsides, and your improvements will continue to grow with each subsequent treatment.
Morpheus8 skin tightening (RF microneedling)
Morpheus8 is considered the most advanced and deeply penetrating microneedling device in the industry, so we are thrilled to be providers of this technology because it means we can deliver the results you deserve. Specifically, Morpheus8 is known as a skin tightening treatment, but it’s also ideal for smoothing acne scars and other textural concerns. If your double chin is the result of mild skin laxity, Morpheus8 may be an ideal option for you. Many double chins are a combination of excess fat and skin laxity. In this case, we may recommend a combination treatment with both Kybella and RF microneedling. Keep in mind that every patient is different. We will work with you to determine the best course for you during your consult.
If you’re looking for a non-invasive treatment that involves zero downtime, you may love SkinTyte, which uses infrared light to tighten lax skin. SkinTyte works by heating skin with infrared light and triggering the contraction of soft tissue under the skin. SkinTyte helps stimulate new collagen to reveal firmer, younger-looking skin under the chin or another area of the body. You may notice improvement after just one treatment, but you may need a series of SkinTyte treatments for your best results.
Keep in mind that we also offer FaceTite, which is a more aggressive and minimally invasive treatment for tightening skin and reducing fat on the chin and face. FaceTite is a radio-frequency assisted lipolysis (RFAL) treatment that uses liposuction combined with radiofrequency energy to reveal a slimmer, trimmer and tighter appearance precisely where you need it. We can help you explore whether FaceTite or a non-invasive solution are right for you during your consultation.
