Double Chin Q & A

What causes a double chin?

Fat located under your neck is known as submental fat. Fat deposits and loose skin in this area are very common, especially after weight loss.

However, unlike excess weight in other parts of your body, you don’t have to be overweight to have a double chin; many thin people have them, too.

The fat in this area can be especially resistant to diet and exercise, so you may find that no matter how hard you work out or how well you eat, your double chin just refuses to budge. But that doesn’t mean that you’re stuck with your double chin forever.

Dr. Darrup uses FDA-cleared treatments like SculpSure to target loose skin and fatty deposits in the submental area and eliminate your double chin. Schedule a consultation at Family Practice Center, PC today.

How can you get rid of a double chin?

While there are no shortcuts when it comes to lasting weight loss and fitness, fat reduction technologies like SculpSure work together with your everyday routine to refine your body by getting rid of stubborn problem areas like submental fat.

Dr. Darrup uses SculpSure, an innovative, noninvasive way to target the fat under your chin for reduction with no downtime or recovery time and permanent results.

SculpSure uses laser technology to deliver heat directly to the targeted fat, which is then eliminated naturally by your own body.

Does SculpSure work on a double chin?

It does. The submental fat of a double chin is one of the areas that has been cleared for SculpSure use by the FDA.

SculpSure works by targeting fat deposits with heat through laser technology, so the procedure is nonsurgical and noninvasive. Your fat cells are basically melted on the spot, and then pass through the body and are eliminated naturally over the course of a few months.

Each session lasts just 25 minutes, and there is no recovery or downtime involved, so once the treatment is over you can just get up and go about your day. Most people require a few sessions, and you can expect to see results anywhere from six weeks to three months.
