How to Reduce a Double Chin

How to Reduce a Double Chin - The Body ClinicWe have many clients contact us who are self-conscious and embarrassed about their double chin and and wondering what treatments are available and how to reduce a double chin.

Whilst a double chin can often be due to being overweight, we also see many clients who find their double chin tends to be a family trait. Inheriting it from their Mum’s or Dad’s side of the family. Or some clients have found that as they are getting older fat has developed in the chin area, along with looser skin and an undefined jaw line.

Up until recently the only way to reduce a double chin was either by losing weight or by more drastic measures such as surgery and liposuction. Well now there are non-surgical treatments that can help target a double chin, reducing that pesky chin fat or tighten loose skin to define and enhance the jawline.

Here’s our Top Treatments for Targeting a Double Chin

Fat Freezing to Reduce a Double Chin

Did you know we can freeze your double chin? Our very popular non-surgical fat reduction treatment Cryolipolysis, or Coolsculpting as its’s known, could be the perfect solution to getting rid of a double chin!

Our Fat Freezing treatment can selectively target the pocket of fat beneath your chin. By applying the device to the chin area, a proportion of the fat cells will be frozen during then treatment causing them to naturally die off. Over the coming weeks your body naturally removes the dead cells away from your chin area, helping to reduce the double chin.

Fat Freezing is a safe, pain free treatment that offers a non-invasive solution to targeting a double chin without surgery. There’s no recovery time and you can carry on with you normal activities immediately after the treatment. We invite clients back to the clinic 8 weeks later for a review.

Ultherapy – HIFU Skin Tightening for a Defined Jawline

Double chins can sometimes be a cause of the aging process. As we age collagen production slows down and our jowls and jawline starts to lose tone and elasticity, causing the skin to become looser and start to sag.

Our non-surgical face lift treatment, HIFU skin tightening, more commonly known as Ultherapy, is effective for lifting and tightening loose or sagging skin. By using the power of ultrasound we can help to lift and tighten your jaw line, reconditioning the skin from within.

HIFU or high intensity focused ultrasound is able to target the deep, structural layers in the skin which when applied helps to stimulates your body’s natural ability to produce collage. Perfect for lifting and tightening those droopy jowls or turkey neck; helping to regain a more defined jaw line.

Just one HIFU Ultherapy treatment is normally advised with results developing over a couple of months as your body is stimulated to produce collagen which creates a lifting and tightening of the lower face and jawline. Results could last between 12 – 18 months.
