Chin Sculpting in Chevy Chase
We are living in the age of the "Zoom Effect." These days we are doing lots of Zoom calls and video conferencing and there is no hiding that double chin. A double chin, also known as submental fat, is a common condition that occurs when a layer of fat forms below your chin. A double chin is often associated with weight gain, but you don't have to be overweight to have one. Genetics or looser skin resulting from aging may also cause a double chin. Let us face it, a double is not attractive and it is very hard to get rid of.
Chin Reduction Q & A
Submental fat (SMF) is an aesthetic concern that is known as a ‘double chin’. It is a concern for both younger and older male and female patients. Chin sculpting is a treatment used to address this issue. Chin Sculpting is a non-surgical double chin treatment that reduces fat under the chin and contours the neck and jawline.
There are many factors that contribute to a double chin, not the least of which is age. As you grow older, the collagen production in your skin naturally begins to decline. Since collagen is responsible for the tone and elasticity in your skin, the effects are myriad. From increasing wrinkles to sagging cheeks, your skin begins to succumb to gravity without the network of strong connective fibers below the surface.
What is TruSculpt-Submental
TruSculpt 3D is a nonsurgical, noninvasive treatment that uses radio frequency to sculpt and contour the body. Patients experience an average of 24% reduction in fat thickness in a single treatment. This radio frequency device uses heat to break down fat cells while also tightening the surrounding skin.
Who is TruSculpt-Submental used for?
Anyone who wants to get rid of unwanted fat or desires skin tightening of the under chin can possibly be a candidate for truSculpt.
During your initial consultation for body sculpting, Dr. Rosenbaum evaluates your fat’s thickness, your skin type, and your skin laxity in the chin area. Any of these factors could affect your results, and he tells you if there are other options for treatment that may be better suited for your needs.
