SculpSure: Non-Surgical Fat Reduction for a Double Chin
By Dr. William Cohen on May 01, 2019
Is excess fat under your chin detracting from your appearance? Surgical options such as liposuction have effectively targeted this concern in the past but now, non-surgical alternatives are available.
Dr. William Cohen offers a safe and automated body sculpting procedure called SculpSure at our Orange County, CA, clinic. The revolutionary laser treatment removes fat quickly and safely, and a single treatment can be completed in just 25 minutes. By working with Dr. Cohen’s team, your treatment will be handled by a practice that has been recognized as one of "America's Top Physicians" and a "Physician of the Month" by prominent medical groups.
What Is Causing My Double Chin?
A “double chin” is caused by excess fat under the chin. Aging and genetics can also contribute to this concern. Weight loss can help slim the area, but the chin is notoriously difficult to treat through lifestyle changes alone. Unlike other areas of the body, exercises are largely ineffective at reducing fat and toning muscle under the chin.
Liposuction and surgical contouring can dramatically improve the appearance of a double chin, and may be ideal for certain individuals who have excessively sagging skin. However, it is generally advisable to pursue non-invasive or minimally invasive treatments before considering surgery.
How SculpSure Treats Excess Fat
SculpSure addresses excess tissue under your chin by heating the fat cells without damaging the skin. After the cells have been damaged using a controlled application of heat, your body will naturally eliminate them. SculpSure’s advanced technology is approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration and features a cooling plate that ensures your comfort while the heat is precisely concentrated on deeper layers of tissue.
When Can I Expect to See Results?
Most patients begin seeing effects around six weeks after treatment, while the final results can be enjoyed around three months after visiting our office. On average, patients experience a 20 to 25 percent improvement in the appearance of the treated area. We find that most patients reach their desired goals after just one treatment but multiple sessions may be recommended depending on your case.
Benefits of SculpSure
Whether you choose SculpSure treatment for your chin or another area of the body, there are multiple benefits of this effective treatment:
- Non-invasive: Many patients are able to achieve dramatic and lasting without the cost or recovery time associated with surgery.
- Cost-effective: SculpSure treatments are much more affordable than surgery.
- Safe: SculpSure carries a very low risk of complications and side effects since no incisions are required.
Despite its benefits, SculpSure is not right for everyone. Dr. Cohen offers several other methods to define and contour the chin, including liposuction and chin implants.
