What’s the Best Treatment to Correct a Double Chin?

A double chin, also known as submental fat, is one of the most common cosmetic concerns among adults today. In a study from the American Society for Dermatological Surgery, an estimated 68% of polled individuals were unhappy with excess fat beneath the neck and chin.

Thankfully, patients today have access to the latest treatment options for a double chin. With innovative medical technology, we no longer have to rely on conventional plastic surgery to create a slimmer, more defined jawline.

Read on to learn about the best treatments available to correct a double chin.

VASERlipo for Double Chins

VASERlipo is a cutting-edge treatment that breaks up fat cells in the neck and below the chin, disconnecting them from loose connective tissue. This creates a more toned, contoured chin and neckline with long-lasting results. 

During VASERlipo, a saline solution combined with an anesthetic is injected into the treatment area. Ultrasound probes are then inserted into the skin through a small incision, which breaks up the fatty tissue. Then, a cannula is used to vacuum away the fatty tissue and fluid. 

VASERlipo requires less downtime than other forms of liposuction. Plus, the sound waves increase collagen production in the treatment area, which continually tightens and smooths the skin.  

Renuvion for Double Chins

Renuvion is an intraoperative skin tightening procedure that effectively tightens and tones the skin around the chin and neck. During this procedure, helium plasma and radiofrequency energy from the Renuvion device are delivered to the subdermal tissue through a very small incision. This has a notable tightening effect and increases collagen production, diminishing the appearance of a double chin. 

Most patients only need 3 to 5 days of downtime after Renuvion, and side effects are minimal. Renuvion can even be combined with VASERlipo for a more dramatic reduction in loose, sagging skin.
