Treating a Double Chin
Do you avoid selfies or having your photo taken on a certain angle in case it shows a double chin?
There are lots of people who feel unhappy with excess fat and loose skin underneath the chin. Double chins can develop with weight gain and can also be more prominent as you get older – especially as your skin becomes less taught and fat settles around the jawline.
Surgical methods used to target double chins are often invasive and can lead to bruising, scarring and long recovery times. At Totally Transformed, we specialise in ways to effectively treat a double chin using non-surgical methods to reduce fat and tighten skin to help achieve a more sculpted profile.
Factors to Consider
A double chin is formed when a layer of submental fat forms underneath the chin and can extend around the jawline. This is normally associated with being overweight, but you don’t have to be overweight to develop a double chin. They can be caused by genetics, ageing and even poor posture!
Following a healthy lifestyle regime will help to give you the best chance of eliminating unwanted submental fat. However, if it’s caused by ageing, genetics or posture then weight loss will do little to improve the problem.
As you age, skin loses its elasticity and becomes loose. Unfortunately, skin laxity will not improve through diet or exercise and can play a large role in the appearance of a double chin.
Treatments for a Double Chin
HIFU treatments, also known as a non-surgical facelift; use High-Intensity Focussed Ultrasound to target areas of skin where there has been a structural loss. In most cases only one treatment is required with results lasting up to 24 months.
Fat Freezing treatments can painlessly and effectively target stubborn fat to help reduce double chins. We recommend up to 3 sessions in order to see the best results and gives outstanding results when combined with our HIFU treatment.
Radio Frequency Skin Tightening
Radio Frequency enables us to tighten the loose skin and sagging skin that creates the appearance of a double chin. This is improved by stimulating the renewal of collagen. This heat treatment also helps to improve the texture and smoothness of the skin. A course of 8 treatments is required.
