Described as an accumulation of fatty tissue beneath the skin of the chin, the double chin is present in both men and women. It ages and weighs down the facial features, giving a slumped and tired look. Cryolipolysis is an esthetic medicine for the removal of stubborn fat leading to the destruction of fat by a cold temperature of-10°C. The Coolsculpting® chin applicator can destroy 25 to 30 percent of the fat cells in a single session, without discomfort, anesthesia or liposuction.
Causes : what is double chin?
The build-up of subcutaneous fat between the neck and the tip of the chin defines the appearance of the double chin. Fats can also be found in the deeper layers of the muscle of the skin, the platysma.
Where does the double chin come from?
The key cause of double chin is the formation of fatty deposits: dietary, genetic or hormonal factors contribute to the development of these fatty deposits.
These fat cells are almost impossible to get rid of with physical exercise or diet.
Sagging skin can in some cases aggravate a double chin, because the skin and the SMAS (superficial musculo aponeurotic system of the platysma muscle) loose tonicity (less collagen) and elasticity (less elastin).
Fat increases the influence of the gravity: the more the weight increases, the more the skin loosens and distends.
In some instances, a defect in projection or advancement (retrogenesis) can produce a double chin: there is less hard tissue and proportionally more soft tissue, which then causes this effect because they are no longer put under tension by the mandibular projection.
There is often little fat and, in that case, chin cryolipolysis is not efficient.
What are the effects on the double chin?
From an aesthetic point of view, the double chin can negate the natural line between the neck and the face. It can intensify the sagging of the face oval due to gravity.
A double chin also provides negative expressions, with a slouchy, tired, unwilling, or even (unfair) form of neglect. It's sometimes a real problem in the professional world, after the age of forty.
Indications: cryolipolysis of the double chin to slim the face.
Coolsculpting ® is the perfect cryopolysis system for the chin. In 1 or 2 sessions, fat is destroyed without surgery or liposuction.
This fat elimination gives a dynamic and rejuvenated expression to the features.
Your doctor at the Clinique des Champs Elysées Dubai will check that there is no general (rare, such as cold agglutinin) or local contraindications ( significant progeny or retrogeny; significant skin sagging).
The cryolipolysis double chin session
Clinique des Champs Elysées Dubai is working with Coolsculpting, the first cryolipolysis system in the world to be authorized as safe and effective:
- Provides a special chin applicator; is painless as the cold works as an efficient anesthetic;
- Produces intense cold (-10°C) allowing shorter sessions; depleted adipocytes will die and be resorbed;
- It is very safe thanks to the patented Freeze Detect Sensor ®, which manages the temperature of the dermis and the skin.
The cooling session lasts 30 to 60 minutes and finishes with an emollient treatment to be repeated for a few days.
Coolsculpting ® results on the double chin
One to two sessions give optimal results, as a single session eliminates 1/4 to 1/3 of the fat in the double chin. The result can only be observed after a month when resorption starts.
The result is final after around 2 months.
Destruction is final since fat cells cannot regenerate: however, a healthy lifestyle is required, otherwise the remaining adipocytes will store new fat.
A thinner chin is associated with dynamism, will and youthfulness.
