Although many Americans go through life with a double chin, few people realize that there's a non-surgical way to get rid of it. Double chins can often make a person look older than they really are. Sometimes made more obvious by frown lines, a double chin can sometimes be removed through the use of TruSculpt® 3D.
Using TruSculpt® 3D to get rid of a double chin
TruSculpt® 3D is a non-surgical body sculpting procedure that helps to rid the body of stubborn fat cells. The procedure is typically best for those who have already tried dieting and exercising but are unable to lose fat in certain areas of the body.
TruSculpt® 3D works by heating the fat cells using a non-surgical body sculpting method of controlled heating. The epidermis is made up of 40 to 50 rows of stacked cells called keratinocytes or squamous cells. The controlled heating methods used in this non-surgical body sculpting procedure are able to reach the fat cells beneath the epidermis without any invasive procedures.
During the procedure, a professional will place an applicator to the area beneath the chin. Over the course of a 15-minute session, the applicator will heat the fat cells in the designated area. Once the fat cells are treated, the lymphatic system will perform over the next few weeks and remove the dead cells from the area.
The result is a smooth appearance that will make you look years younger. You can finally put your turtleneck sweaters away. However, in order to keep your chin from forming fat around the area in the future, it's essential that you maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Are there other non-surgical methods to get rid of a double chin?
Kybella is another fat-killing, non-surgical procedure that can help to rid a patient of their double chin. The procedure involves injections into full area beneath the chin. Kybella destroys the membrane of the fat cells, which causes the fat cells to die.
Like in TruSculpt® 3D, the lymphatic system is what naturally takes the dead fat cells away from the area. If the treatment is a success, it will leave you with the aesthetically appealing face you've always wanted.
Patients who have received Kybella report similarly satisfying results to those who have had TruSculpt® 3D performed to get rid of their double chin. Kybella does cause some swelling for about a week, but it is very effective. Sometimes, a combined approach is also recommended. Therefore, when it comes down choosing which procedure you should receive, it all boils down to how you feel about needles!
