Submental fullness – excess fat in the area beneath the chin – can be an embarrassing indicator of aging or becoming out of shape. A double chin and loose skin in the region can be reduced in a variety of ways, many of them non-surgical.
CoolMini is a non-invasive way of eliminating submental fat cells using only cooling energy. Once the cells experience apoptosis, they are gradually filtered out of the body.
Kybella is a minimally invasive injectable treatment for submental fat. It is composed of deoxycholic acid, a substance naturally found in the body, and works by compromising the cell walls of fat cells.
Liposuction involves the use of a cannula, a thin tube with a sharp end. This tube loosens the fat cells to be suctioned out of the area. Once the cells are suctioned out, the region is recontoured and reduced in volume.
Ultherapy focuses on tightening the skin of the face and neck. Gentle non-invasive ultrasound energy is directed at the skin, stimulating collagen production to increase skin elasticity and firmness.
Lutronic Infini is another option for a non-surgical face and neck lift. It combines microneedling and radio frequency energy for comprehensive skin rejuvenation.
A facelift is a surgical method of trimming away excess skin and tightening loose muscle tissue to create a rejuvenated appearance. Wrinkles, drooping skin, and a double chin can all be addressed with this technique.
