Say Goodbye to Your Double Chin

Say Goodbye to Your Double Chin

Double chins are a common problem associated with both weight gain and getting older, yet with the right genetic factors, you may develop the characteristic roll without an increased body mass at virtually any age. Unlike other body parts, like arms and legs, your chin isn’t an area you can vigorously flex for spot toning. 

Does it feel like you’re a double chin “victim”? It can seem like that before you find out about SculpSure® and its remarkable ability to treat resistant fat deposits, including those in the submental (under the chin) area. In Fort Lauderdale, visit us at Bayview General Medicine to learn more about this amazing double chin treatment. 

Why your body fights contouring efforts

You can work hard at diet and exercise to control your weight and shape only to find that your body continues to store fat in unwelcome rolls and bulges that spoil your body shaping priorities. One reason is that you have little control over the fat your body burns when you’re in a calorie-deficit cycle. 

There’s no guarantee that the fat your body uses to bridge the deficit comes from an area you’re targeting for reduction. It’s a discrepancy that seems to increase as you age and your body changes where it stores and draws energy. 

Exercise can only tame fat that’s located behind muscle tissue. Toned and firm muscles hold back and shape these fat stores, giving you control over body contours. However, you also have fat that sits between skin and muscle. When your body stores fat here, muscle toning has no influence on your shape. 

Your double chin suffers from both of these issues. It’s not a problem that comes down to a failure in your diet or exercise plan. It’s just a cruel fact of nature that interferes with your efforts. 

The SculpSure solution

A characteristic of fat cells is their tolerance to a relatively narrow window of temperature. Warming fat cells to a level slightly outside the normal range of body temperature called the coagulation point can compromise fat cells, triggering a cycle where the body starts to flush these damaged cells out. 

This is where SculpSure comes in. Using targeted laser energy, SculpSure projects laser light through your skin to warm fat tissue below the surface. A portion of these warmed fat cells reaches the coagulation point. Over the next few months, these cells break down for disposal through your lymphatic system. 

SculpSure now has clearance from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for reducing fat in the double-chin area. You now have a nonsurgical choice when it comes to reducing the size of your double chin. 

Dr. Richard Blanchar and the team at Bayview General Medicine proudly offer 25-minute SculpSure treatments to our patients. Find out more about how SculpSure can help you achieve your body shaping goals by scheduling a consultation with us. Request an appointment online or by phone today.
