SculpSure is one of the most advanced fat reduction techniques that uses a laser to target and melt fat cells by exposing them to high temperature heat. The body gradually disposes these off, providing noticeable changes in just 6-12 weeks.
Since the under chin area is super curvy, the applicator is designed specifically to fit under the chin. In addition to fat reduction, the heating process of SculpSure stimulates an increase in collagen production in the skin, increasing lift and firmness in the treated area so you look more toned as well.
It’s approved by the FDA in 2015 and has quickly become one of the most trusted treatments worldwide, offering permanent results and a 93% satisfaction rate for the double chin.
SculpSure is a type of lipolysis wherein the laser melts fat cells. After the area along your jawline is marked, a belt is wrapped around your face and the laser attachment is secured in to treat the area. The laser then starts to heat the fat cells there with a mix of hot and cold shots. The procedure isn’t painful or uncomfortable.
Like Kybella, SculpSure also targets the fat cells around your jawline and the upper area of your neck to reduce fat there, in this case by burning the fat cells using laser, and minimising your double chin. SculpSure, however, can also be used on other areas of the body to target stubborn fat cells.
You can treat your double chin with SculpSure in just 25 minutes in 2-3 sessions. Results begin to show in 1-3 months as the fat cells filter out.
It is important to note that you can still gain weight and see those fat deposits return, so you must follow the correct diet and lifestyle and return for additional sessions when necessary.
There’s no downtime or post-care required, but sometimes mild redness and tenderness may occur. But normally, you can go straight to work right after.
While you may sense some tingling during the treatment, you don’t require any anesthesia or numbing cream for this procedure. Make sure you understand that the treatment does take about 3 months to show full effect and it isn’t a treatment you sign up for even a month before an event that you’re prepping for.
Best candidate for SculpSure
SculpSure is a great treatment for stubborn fat cells that don’t seem to budge with temporary facial treatments or even Kybella. If excessive fat in the area is your concern, SculpSure will definitely sort
If you’re developing a double chin due to skin aging, treatments that focus on collagen production and skin tightening can help you more than SculpSure will. However, you do need to maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine to ensure that you do not have fat deposits in the area once again.
