Double chins are common, but they make it easy to feel self-conscious. More often than not, the shape of your chin has little to do with your body weight and everything to do with factors like genetics and lifestyle habits. Slimming your chin isn’t easy, but WarmSculpting® with SculpSure® can help. Dr. Laura Riehm and her team use this noninvasive laser to blast stubborn chin fat and give you a profile you love. Call Skin Deep Laser MD in Fort Worth, Texas, or book an appointment online to discuss if WarmSculpting is right for you.
Why do I have a double chin?
A double chin is a roll of excess fat under your jaw. Known as submental fullness in the medical world, that characteristic heaviness under the chin can be a source of insecurity.
Factors ranging from body weight to genetics affect the contours of your chin. Being overweight can add fullness to your submental area. But it’s also possible to have a double chin even if you’re at a healthy weight due to bone structure and fat storage.
Age also affects your profile. Facial muscles weaken over the years, and fat accumulation with sagging skin can create a double chin.
If you’re bothered by your double chin, you might know that achieving targeted fat loss under your chin is difficult, if not impossible. Reaching and sustaining a healthy weight can help, but you might still have a double chin even after losing excess weight.
That’s why Dr. Riehm offers WarmSculpting® with SculpSure®, a noninvasive laser that’s FDA-approved to treat fat under the chin.
How does WarmSculpting treat double chins?
WarmSculpting targets stubborn pockets of fat below the surface of your skin. It’s a safe, effective way to permanently eliminate excess fat in the submental area and remove that double chin.
WarmSculpting for double chins gently heats the fat cells under your jaw. The heat damages fat cells’ structural integrity, and once damaged, your body naturally eliminates them in the months following treatment. As your results develop, you begin to notice a reduction in fat under your chin and a slimmer profile.
What can I expect with WarmSculpting for a double chin?
WarmSculpting profile treatments at Skin Deep Laser MD take about 25 minutes in the office. There’s no downtime required, so you can get treatment quickly and go on your way.
Dr. Riehm and the team prepare your skin, then attach the SculpSure applicator. There will be a cooling sensation, and then treatment begins. Expect to feel tingling or a deep warmth as the lasers heat fat cells and destroy them.
