Different options for non surgical double chin removal
Are your jowls drooping with every passing year? As we age, our facial structure continues to change. This loss of volume in the chin and the consequent drooping effect of the jowls, can be replaced with dermal fillers.
Dermal fillers are injections that are made with natural hyaluronic acid and can create a V-shaped appearance and tighten loose skin under the chin. FDA approved fillers such as Restylane SubQ® and Belotero INTENSE® are some of the products that are known to give good results for sculpting the chin. Chin Fillers don’t take very long either! A lunch time, non surgical double chin removal procedure, fillers are quick and effective with no downtime needed.
Sagging skin can become a problem especially around the jawline. Surgery is one option, but if you are looking at a non surgical method to getting rid of your double chin, do consider Ulthera. FDA approved and non invasive, this ultrasound-based skin lifting treatment, stimulates a productive healing response that results in production of collagen. Worried about burns? Ulthera is able to penetrate the deepest layers of the skin without harming the topmost layer at all. Results include skin lifting, tightening and defining of a jawline that looks much younger.
Neck Thread Lift
With age and gravity, pockets of fats make way to our lower jawline – resulting in double chins. If you’ve heard of Thread Lifts, a non surgical treatment for a facelift, you’ll be excited to hear that 100% bio-absorbable threads can also be used to lift droopy skin on your neck! A Neck Thread Lift is a non-surgical procedure that uses absorbable threads (similar to sutures used in surgery), that stimulate the vectors of collagen, giving a long lasting lift. These threads are fine surgical sutures with either cogs or cones in them that hook onto skin. Once inserted, they are able to create an immediate pull and lift. And that’s not all, a thread lift also activates natural collagen production from the inside. Which means not only will you get a lifted physical appearance, the thread lift will also stimulate a strong matrix of collagen that secures the skin lift with time.
Don’t let your double chin troubles bring you down. As we’ve said above, there are a number of ways you can look at removing submental fat – exercise and non invasive treatments are amongst a few.
When it comes to non surgical methods, keep in mind that a qualified doctor may need to tailor the procedures based on your skin, amount of sagging and keeping other health precautions in mind.
Hence, choose wisely, by going to a qualified and experienced specialist who understands the procedures you are after and also carries the medical knowledge to manage any side effects or reactions.
