A double chin can really wreck your confidence. Hillside Medical Clinic provides SculpSureⓇ laser therapy to men and women in Salem, Utah. To learn more about laser treatments for submental fat, call the clinic to schedule a consultation or use the online scheduler to book now.
Submental fat or submental fullness is the medical term for having a double chin. A layer of excess subcutaneous fat hangs just below the chin and under the jawline and makes you look overweight or obese when you may be a healthy weight.
Even if you eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly, if you’re genetically predisposed to having a double chin, there’s not much you can do about it on your own. Other causes of submental fullness are aging and weight gain.
Your provider at Hillside Medical Clinic meets with you to ensure you’re a good candidate for laser therapy. They’ll talk with you about your goals, perform a physical evaluation of your submental fat, and outline a treatment plan.
Hillside Medical Clinic uses the versatile SculpSure laser system to contour and sculpt the area under your jawline. While you recline comfortably on the treatment table, your provider glides the laser paddle over and around the fullness under your chin.
The heat from the laser penetrates your skin and disintegrates the fat cells beneath it. A cooling mechanism keeps your skin from getting too hot. Over the next few weeks, your body eliminates the fat cells through your normal detoxification processes.
Many Hillside Medical Clinic patients don’t have any discomfort when they have double chin laser therapy, but some report a tingling or burning sensation as the laser deploys the heat into your skin. It’s temporary and subsides quickly.
Double chin treatment with SculpSure is FDA approved and is completely safe. You can return to your regular activities immediately following the procedure.
It may take a few weeks or even months to see the full results of your SculpSure treatment, but once all the fat cells are completely flushed away, your results are permanent. Your provider recommends that you maintain a healthy lifestyle to enhance your physical improvements.
