Look in the mirror and see a turkey neck? It’s the dreaded double chin.
A double chin is an accumulation of fat under the chin forming a pouch. It’s unattractive and makes you look old. It distorts the natural and youthful oval shape of the face. It also drags down the contour of the face, making you look heavy.
A true double chin is caused by an accumulation of fat. Some people have sagging skin under the chin, giving a similar appearance. This condition by definition isn’t a double chin. Definition, shmefinition. It looks the same and it still makes you look old and overweight.
It turns out that double chins are easy to treat with non surgical modern technology. Non surgical double chin treatments include:
- Profound – This is the ideal treatment when the problem is sagging skin under your chin and on your neck. Using radiofrequency microneedles, it restores collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin. Profound gives you the effects of a neckliftwith one treatment that restores elasticity to your skin.
- VShape – If you have turkey neck this treatment is perfect for both fat and excess skin under the chin. VShape combines both radiofrequency and ultrasound energy. Together, they both bust up fat cells and tighten skin.
- Kybella – This much talked about new double chin treatment is just the ticket when the problem is an excess of fat under the chin and sagging skin is not an issue. It is an injectable form of deoxycholic acid which literally dissolves fat, ridding you of the double chin.
As you can see, the choice of non surgical treatment depends on your specific situation. The aesthetic practitioners at Vivesse Med Spa know which double chin treatment is best for you.
