Double Chin Removal

Introduction 

We know that a double chin can make you look older than your real age and certainly older than you feel.

Fat under the chin plays an important role in the appearance of a youthful looking neck, but it is also prone to a condition which in medical terms is known as ‘sub-mental fullness’. The sub-mental area is the triangular shaped area directly under the chin, and to a layperson, sub-mental fullness is the same thing as a double chin.

It is virtually impossible to remove a double chin through diet or exercise alone and many patients come to see us for help.

How We Remove Double Chins

We are able to remove the stubborn fat causing the double chin using a treatment known as Cool Mini. This will appeal to anyone who wants their double chin removal non surgically and it uses a very small CoolSculpting applicator specifically designed for fitting underneath the chin. CoolSculpting uses cryolipolysis or fat freezing to permanently destroy fat cells. A treatment with Cool Mini takes as little as 45 minutes and best results will appear in about 2 to 4 months.  It really is an excellent option for chin fat removal without surgery.

A Double Chin or Loose Neck Skin?

However sometimes people confuse a double chin with another condition, which is actually loose or saggy neck skin.  This is caused by the body slowing down the production of collagen and elastin and instead of requiring a treatment to remove a double chin, a neck tightening treatment such as Ultherapy which uses micro-focussed ultrasound energy will give far better results.

In our experience Ultherapy remains the gold standard for anyone seeking a non surgical solution to lift sagging skin in the lower face or to tighten neck skin. The final result will be close to a neck lift but without the surgery and associated downtime.

Next Steps

We offer complimentary assessments with our experienced and fully trained practitioners to help you better understand the various treatments that we have for improving double chins and loose neck skin.  During an assessment our practitioners will be able to give you their opinion on which treatment might be best for you, explain in detail what treatment with CoolSculpting and Ultherapy is like and outline the cost. You will then be able to go away to decide if it might be right for you.

So if you are concerned by the appearance of a double chin or sagging and loose skin on your neck, please telephone us on +44 20 7935 6358, send an enquiry on the Contact Us Page or email appointments@drhausdermatology.com.

Recommended Treatments: CoolSculpting and Ultherapy

I am delighted with the Non Surgical Face-lift / Ultherapy treatment I had with Dr Haus recently. As I’ve reached my mid 40’s my jowls have started to sag slightly and I just looked a bit down in the mouth. Dr Haus was recommended to me by a friend and I am so glad that I made the decision to have this treatment with him. Dr Haus is very lovely and has an amazingly calm manner which puts you completely at ease. I chose this treatment as I wanted a natural looking lift without having anything drastic like surgery. Straight after the treatment, I was so happy to see that I had an immediate lift across my jawline, cheeks and brow area and my skin was just glowing. The best news is that the overall lift is going to improve even more over the next few months - so watch this space as I will be reporting back as my results continue to improve. Dr Haus completely put me at ease, made me feel very relaxed and comfortable. I expected the Ultherapy part of the treatment to be a little painful, but to be honest it was only slightly uncomfortable and nowhere near as bad as I expected it to be. Dr Haus finished the procedure with a light peel which left my skin glowing and really taut. I chose Dr Haus not only due to the personal recommendation but because he is a dermatologist, hugely experienced and gets results. I can’t recommend him highly enough, thank you Dr Haus. An added benefit is that the clinic is absolutely beautiful and his team are really helpful and friendly - so the overall experience is one that you would like definitely recommend and would be happy to repeat. I also left with a bag of skincare - which was an unexpected surprise. Thank you so much Dr Haus and team.
