Let’s talk about double chins. For instance, why do we get them?
Ok, so we know we certainly didn’t pick it up from the “depanneur” and it wasn’t a goodie that came with our uber eats order last April.
A double chin, also known as submental fat, is a common condition that occurs when a layer of fat forms below your chin. It is often associated with weight gain, although you don't have to be overweight to have one. Genetics or looser skin resulting from aging may also cause a double chin, as well as thyroid problems.
A few different factors combine in the body to create a double chin, such as: age, diet, weight, genetics, and posture.
Some people are genetically predisposed to a double chin, meaning they have a family history of skin with little elasticity. As we age, our skin loses a lot of its natural elasticity. Weight fluctuations, natural pulling and stretching, and the deterioration of facial cartilage, bones, and fat ultimately leave our skin slack. Smoking, sun exposure, and gravity don't help either. But sagging skin doesn't disappear, if anything, it pools.
Double chins can happen to anybody.
A non-surgical treatment
Ok, so before we go there, we want to inform you that there are exercises you can try. These exercises will not have immediate results, but they do have their perks if you make them part of your everyday routine. For starters, they are free.
Exercises that target a double chin include:
· Straight jaw jut. Tilt your head back and look toward the ceiling. ...
· Ball exercise. Place a 9- to10-inch ball under your chin. ...
· Pucker up. With your head tilted back, look at the ceiling. ...
· Tongue stretch. ...
· Neck stretch. ...
· Bottom jaw jut.
If you are concerned about a newly appeared double chin, look into these exercises. However, if you are looking for almost immediate results without going under the `knive` as we call it in the cosmetic world (aka, surgery), then Nouvelle Peau Medispa’s Double Chin Reduction Treatment is definitely something we recommend you to try.
How does the treatment work?
Radio frequency delivers a safe electrical current to the treated area via electrodes. The radiofrequency heats the area and deeply penetrates the skin. By heating the cells within a safe range, this causes the skin to tighten, making it smoother and reducing cellulite. It is the heat from the radio frequency procedure that stimulates the collagen, causing it to contract and tighten, while disrupting stubborn fat cells. Improvements are visibly seen days after the first treatment.
This, combined with cavitation ( another fabulous non-invasive procedure) designed to reduce localized fat by applying safe levels of ultrasound energy via a hand held probe to a targeted area of subcutaneous fat allows us to tighten the skin. It is a face & body shaping procedure that works by breaking down deep stubborn local fat tissues, which are subsequently disposed of through the lymphatic and urinary systems.
Is there any downtime?There is no downtime as there are no needles or lasers involved. Is the treatment safe? You bet it is! our Double Chin Reduction treatment is safe and relaxing. Before your treatment, we will assess your requirements and discuss your goals. Once we’re ready to start, all you need to do is sit back and enjoy the warmth generated from the Radio frequency applicator. The procedure lasts approximately 30 minutes each time.
How many treatments are required?
Start of by speaking to one of our technicians. They will advise on weather you will require 1 session or more. Typically, there are amazing deals on 5 sessions if you acquire them as a package. Ideally a set of 3-5 is strongly recommended.
