Fat buildup in the form of a double chin can be really discouraging. Those who are well into their weight loss journeys can attest to the stubborn nature of fat lingering just below the chin. Often, age can complicate the matter too. After 30, our skin laxity increases due to the gradual loss of collagen. This decline causes an acceleration in sagging and adds to the size of the double chin. At Marlowe MD, we’re excited to provide our patients with effective submental fat reduction treatments in the form of the powerful SculpSure® device. This device works by targeting fat cells at their source and eliminating them from your system, giving you the beautifully contoured look you seek.
Submental Sculpting With SculpSure®
The appearance of a double chin can rarely be controlled. This stubborn fat buildup can present itself due to age, weight changes, and sometimes even genetics. At Marlowe MD, we always encourage patients to practice good eating and exercise habits. However, we also recognize that a double chin can sometimes form outside of our control. This is when submental sculpting with SculpSure® can be especially helpful. The submental attachment offered at our Florida center utilizes precision laser technology to safely heat and destroy fat under the skin.
SculpSure® Submental Procedure
SculpSure® is a non-surgical, non-invasive solution for getting rid of stubborn pockets of fat. A typical double chin treatment with this device involves the application of a wand to the submental area. This wand emits laser energy that feels warm and tingling. The energy penetrates the outer layer of the skin, disrupting the fat cells that lie below. The fat cells die as a result of the disruption and are eliminated by the body’s natural waste-removal systems.
When Can I See Results?
You experience a loss of up to 24% of the fat cells in the chin area following a session. You see the beginnings of results in about six weeks, with optimal results appearing in 12 weeks when your body has had a chance to fully dispose of the disrupted fat cells. Several treatments may be necessary to achieve the look you want, but the results are permanent.
Am I a Candidate?
Ideal candidates for SculpSure® treatment are those who already follow a healthy lifestyle complete with regular diet and exercise. Maintaining good health habits is essential for this treatment to be effective in the long term. Though the device offers a permanent reduction in fat cells, the remaining fat in your body can swell if healthy habits aren’t practiced regularly.
