Double chin is a cosmetic issue that many people struggle with. It is an accumulation of fat cells in the upper neck area, just below the lower jaw. One of the most common reasons for developing a double chin is weight gain. However, there are some other factors that can contribute to its appearance. These include:
The double chin usually does not pose any health risk. Most people, however, want to get rid of it for purely cosmetic reasons. The double chin creates the illusion of a fuller face, disrupts its harmony, and gives a person an aged and tired appearance.
Shens Medical offers innovative solutions to remove a double chin, without surgery. This can be done by using ultrasound energy or HIFU, or by freezing fat through cold temperature, a process known as cryolipolysis.
HIFU (High-intensity focused ultrasound) is a non-invasive procedure which can destroy fat cells as well as lift and tighten the skin. It uses ultrasound energy to heat the tissue and eliminate the accumulated fat. In addition to that, HIFU also boosts collagen production, which is beneficial for the firmer appearance of the skin.
HIFU double chin removal is a very quick treatment. You will need to spend less than an hour at the aesthetic clinic. The doctor will clean your face and apply an anaesthetic gel. Then, he or she will use the HIFU device to address the fatty tissue in the chin area.
The procedure doesn’t require any downtime and is not associated with any side effects. You can usually resume your normal activities immediately following the treatment session.
To get the most out of HIFU Double chin removal, it is recommended to get 2 sessions, one month apart. Then, you can have it every 6 months so that you maintain your results.
