The submental or “double chin” area is a common trouble spot for both men and women, as stubborn fat in this area can be particularly challenging to lose. In fact, following a healthy diet and exercise regimen is often not enough to reduce submental fat, since genetics play a role in the development of a double chin as well.
Fortunately, there are several non-surgical and minimally invasive double chin treatment options that can help you achieve a slimmer chin and jawline. Let’s take a closer look at the ones we offer here at the Michigan Center for Cosmetic Services.
Morpheus8 RF Microneedling
Morpheus8 is a cutting-edge skin treatment that combines microneedling with the latest in radiofrequency technology. This treatment combo can work well for treating a double chin, as microneedling stimulates collagen production and can therefore have a tightening effect on the skin, while radiofrequency can reduce stubborn fat and provide further tightening in the treated area.
FaceTite Skin Tightening
FaceTite skin tightening is another non-invasive skin treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to tighten skin and contour the neck and jawline. FaceTite can be combined with Morpheus8 RF microneedling for enhanced double chin treatment results, or performed on its own.
Neck and Jawline Liposuction
In some cases, neck and jawline liposuction may be the most effective solution to get rid of a stubborn double chin. Whether you are seeking more dramatic results than non-surgical treatments have been able to offer or have significant skin laxity in your lower face and neck, facial liposuction can offer long-lasting, dramatic results that are visible in just a few days after treatment.
Even though liposuction is a surgical procedure, Dr. West only needs to make a few small incisions to perform liposuction along the jawline and neck. The incisions should heal with no long-term scarring, and the procedure can be performed using local anesthesia.
