double chin removal without surgery

Removal of double chin without surgery

The double chin is located in the neck below the chin and two types can be distinguished: The double chin formed by adipose tissue and the double chin caused by sagging and flaccidity of the skin. 

The double chin is caused by adipose tissue in people who are overweight, giving the appearance of a double chin. 

While the double chin caused by sagging or excess skin in this area is due to excessive weight loss; for example, the elderly or people with long necks easily develop this problem.

How is the procedure performed?

If you are looking for how to reduce jowls, some of the treatments that could help you reduce them are: 

  • Radiofrequency
  • Mesotherapy
  • Cavitation

Mesotherapy for double chin is a non-surgical procedure that consists of injecting elements that will help you accelerate cellular metabolism. This is done manually or with an assisted infiltration machine. 

After injecting the elements, the plastic surgeon will proceed to massage the area to achieve muscle relaxation. 

With this we will cause the fat to decrease little by little. 

¿How is the procedure performed?

The results are not immediate since we must wait a couple of weeks to see the results. We also advise you to consider using a firming cream for the neck and jowls after the treatment. 

Radiofrequency is a non-surgical procedure that helps to reduce the fat concentrated in the area by contracting the skin with the heating of subcutaneous collagen.

It reduces flaccidity, dynamic  wrinkles and improves the appearance of the skin. 

Cavitation is a relaxing treatment where heat waves are generated to eliminate fat, in very few sessions you will begin to see results such as smoother skin and improvement in the contour of the double chin.

It is recommended to take between 5 to 8 sessions, one every 3 days to obtain optimal results.
