3 Non-Invasive Treatments to Defeat the Double Chin


Remember how fresh and tight our skin was when we were younger? Everything stayed in place, and nothing was sagging south. But a combination of gravity and aging can have undesirable effects on our body. Our features start to fall as we age, mainly due to the loss of collagen in the skin.

That loss of elasticity can result in the dreaded double chin. It’s a sign that your jawline isn’t as firm as it once was. However, there are things you can do about it with a little medical spa intervention. Esteem Medical Spa offers a variety of treatments that target this troublesome area. You don’t have to suffer with a double chin any longer. Here are some targeted treatments to consider that will banish your double chin for good.


CoolSculpting: Targeting The Chin With The Cool Mini Treatment

CoolSculpting is taking the world by storm. This treatment usually targets larger areas of excess fat, such as the stomach, thighs, and hips. However, The “Cool Mini” is a smaller device made specifically for the contours of the neck and chin.

CoolMini before and after results

The “Cool Mini” treatment is FDA approved and designed to freeze away fat cells around the chin. The process only takes about an hour, and can reduce your chin area by at least ⅓. Full results normally take one to two months, but for a slimmer, well sculpted chin, it’s worth the wait.


Kybella: An Effective Fat Melting Injection

While the Cool Mini doesn’t require the use of any needles, Kybella is an injectable treatment that also targets the chin area. Also FDA approved, Kybella contains a naturally-occurring molecule that helps breakdown and absorb dietary fats present in the double chin. This prevents those fat cells from being able to store and accumulate fat. Kybella usually requires a couple of treatments spaced about six weeks apart to effectively reduce the appearance of the double chin. While the fat is melting away over time, collagen is added to the area as well, to tighten up the skin.


Neck of a modelThe Venus Freeze: Reversing Gravity

This superhero treatment uses non-invasive technology to sculpt and reduce the dreaded “turkey neck” that many women get when they age. Venus Freeze utilizes Multi-Polar Radio Frequencies and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields, which activate hormones that attach themselves to fat cells in the skin, eventually breaking them down. In a nutshell, the treatment shrinks fat cells and tightens skin. It’s that easy. You usually need a series of about six treatments to get the most out of the Venus Freeze.

With so many options, it might be hard to know which one is right for you.

Gravity is inevitable, but with so many advancements in medical spa technology, your skin doesn’t have to be weighed down by its effects.
