About THE PROCEDURE
Having a bit of extra fat in the upper throat area can create the presence of a "double chin," a look that is often unwanted for both women and men. The additional pockets of fat below the chin (or the submental area) can be caused by weight fluctuations, aging, or genetics that lead to a softer jawline and chin for a less defined profile. Roanoke, TX attending physician Dr. A. D. Thakkar is happy to provide a revolutionary technique to reduce neck fat at Youthology Med Spa. To perform your nonsurgical chin reduction, Dr. Thakkar will use highly innovative laser technology on the targeted area. This laser, the Eufoton LASEmaR 1500, will create microscopic injuries that will encourage collagen production and skin cell turnover, tightening the affected area. After undergoing a series of treatments, you will be able to enjoy your new slender neck and defined jawline for years to come.
The ideal candidates for nonsurgical chin reduction treatments have unwanted fat in the upper throat (submental area), which creates a double chin or unwanted volume. This procedure tightens and firms resistant areas of fat that can't be removed with common weight loss techniques due to genetics, aging, and several other conditions. If you are near a healthy, stable weight, but exercise and diet have not been able to eliminate the fat in your submental area, this noninvasive procedure may be the option for your goals.
Nonsurgical chin reduction is completed during an appointment in one of our treatment rooms. Dr. Thakkar will run the laser over the necessary areas after administering a local anesthesia (if requested). Some patients may require a single treatment to get to their desired look while others may require multiple procedures spaced between each appointment at Youthology Med Spa.
To perform your laser-assisted chin reduction procedure, Dr. Thakkar uses the highly effective and versatile Eufoton LASEmaR 1500 treatment system, which has been proven to provide effective results for dermatology and gynecological uses. This laser encourages the production of collagen in one's own skin to promote natural healing and rejuvenation over time.
What to Expect
Nonsurgical chin reduction laser treatments don't require general anesthesia so you are allowed to leave our office when you are ready to return to your daily routine. You may notice short-term numbness, bruising, or swelling below your chin, although this shouldn't last more than a couple of days. Contact Youthology Med Spa right away if you are noticing any unusual symptoms, including difficulty swallowing, facial muscle weakness, or if your facial expressions are uneven. You need to keep a stable weight after your treatments to prevent new pockets of fat from developing. Ideal results after this procedure leave your neck appearing sleeker and slimmer, and your neckline will be better defined.
