A double chin, also known as submental fat, involves excess skin and fat around the chin and neck. The condition emerges due to genetic factors, weight gain, or the natural aging process.
As you age, skin loses some elasticity and can appear loose and sagging. The same can occur if you’ve gained or lost weight. While a double chin can be embarrassing, you can always fix it with cosmetic treatments.
Beyond eating a healthy diet and doing exercises to reduce the appearance of your double chin, laser therapy is available to eliminate the fat for good. Dr. Wise and Dr. Weber use a PrecisionTx laser to smooth and tone the neck area without any pain or incisions.
Dr. Wise and Dr. Weber begin this non-surgical procedure by applying a local anesthetic to your skin. Then, they insert a small laser underneath the top layer of skin.
The laser’s heat tightens skin layers and tissue under the skin for instant results. The laser also eliminates fat deposits which Dr. Wise and Dr. Weber remove via a small cannula, or tube, like those used in liposuction.
The PrecisionTx laser treatment for double chins involves far less downtime and cost than a traditional facelift. In fact, pain and discomfort should be limited, and you will be able to return to normal activity soon after the procedure.
When you undergo a PrecisionTx procedure to treat a double chin, some results will be visible right away. The full results of the procedure will continue to develop over the course of several months, and Dr. Wise and Dr. Weber will inform you as to what you can expect during your recovery time.
You don’t have to live with your double chin if you’re unsatisfied with your appearance. Book online or call now to schedule a visit with Dr. Alan Wise and Dr. William Weber at Plastic Surgery Associates of Southern Indiana.
