Double Chin: Causes and Treatment

A double chin is a layer of fat that is subcutaneous that sags down to create a wrinkle. This will give the illusion that the person has two chins, or a double chin. It is commonly seen on those that are obese or elderly. It is often difficult to correct with diet and exercises. Double chin could even be genetic. Even if the rest of the body is toned and fit, a double chin can make one look like they have gained or added a few kilograms. A simple procedure that can be done in the skin specialist’s office can often be used to treat a double chin. LiquidLipo will remove amounts of fat that are under the chin, which will help to rejuvenate the entire face. Since the process of lipodissolve is gradual, it is much gentler than other forms of fat removal. LiquidLipo is often called mesotherapy, which means to treat from the middle layer.

What is LiquidLipo?

LiquidLipo is a popular treatment for getting rid of double chins. It first came into play in the mid 2000s. It is basically a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. It can be done on many other parts of the body, such as the legs, belly, and arms. It is a safe, effective way for helping one get the toned look they so desire when dealing with double chins.

How does LiquidLipo work?

Chemical injections will be used in LiquidLipo. The LiquidLipo formula is concocted of various vitamins, enzymes, and a substance called phosphatidlcholine, which is the main chemical ingredient in soya oil. This is a safe substance that has also been used by many doctors to treat high cholesterol.  A very fine needle will be used for the procedure. First a local anesthetic could be used to numb the area of the injection site. However, not all dermatologist will use anesthetic. Those that have not used it have said that the treatment was uncomfortable but bearable. A slight stinging sensation will be felt when the needle first comes into contact with the skin, but this is diminished quickly.

Once the solution has been injected, the molecule bonds between the fat molecules are dissolved. This means that the fat will change from a solid form to a liquid form. This treatment will take about half an hour. Over the course of the next few weeks to months, the liver, as well as the intestines, will filter out the fat from the body. Improvement will be seen in the area within 4 weeks. A series of treatment is often needed for the best results.

LiquidLipo Before and After Care

Before having LiquidLipo done on the body, it is best to follow some ground rules. Make sure that the body is well hydrated before the treatment takes place and never skip breakfast. Both of these will ensure that painful bruising does not take place. After the treatment, recovery will be very quick. Most times, there is no downtime and the person can return to their daily scheduled lives right after the treatment. For about an hour after the procedure, a slight burning sensation will be felt. Skin may have some slight swelling, with some tenderness. However, side effects are minimal. Please do note to check with your physician to see if you are having LiquidLipo done, if you will need a driver. Some skin clinics will not release the patient after the procedure without a driver present.

    I have had a double chin and tried all the exercises that have been advertised for eliminating the double chin. None of them worked. I am excited to say that six months ago I had lipodissolve done. I loved the effects. It is a gradual process but so worth it. I must say that I am pleased with the results. My face/chin looks great. My skin feels rejuvenated and my chin is shrinking down to just one! I can attest that this procedure really does work. If you have a double chin, please by all means look into it. You will see that you will be able to get rid of the doubleness! And then you will gain confidence and just look better. Results can be seen in as little as a month, with just one treatment, but it is often recommended to have more than one session done. Or at least this was the case for me.

    If you do suffer from a double chin like I have before, then you need to look into lipodissolve. I have tried everything from losing weight to watching what I eat. I have even fallen for the chin and facial exercises. While these may have helped me a bit, they did not completely resolve the effects of my double chin. I had five treatments done, each were scheduled about a month apart from one another. It has permanently dissolved the fat that was in my chin area. Do take caution that if you have poor eating habits, the double chin can come back. However, since doing the treatments, I have resolved to get healthier and have not had any of the fat come back! That was a year ago. I saw results in about seven to eight weeks. The process was not painful at all. I had a fan that was blowing cool air on me and I do feel that helped me greatly. There was a slight stinging sensation but it was very well tolerated by me. Do note that the needles used are very small, so I feel that anyone can handle the said treatment.

    I have never suffered from a double chin but my aunt has. She has been really down on herself many times because of it. Granted, I think that she is pretty but she says that no guy is doing to want to kiss someone that has a double chin. Lipodissolve is what my aunt needs. I wonder how much one of these treatments, or a series of them costs? I would love to be able to treat my aunt to a treatment just so she can start to feel good about herself.

    I have a double chin and I hate it. I have had it for some time now and just thought that I would always have to live with it. I have tried to lose weight, and while I even managed to lose 35 pounds, the double chin is still here. My mother was also blessed with one. I guess the only way for me to get rid of mine is to have this procedure done. I will be asking my dermatologist about it as my double chin gets in the way of life. I do not feel confident or pretty and just feel like others are pitying me for being this way. Well I am vowed to make a change. I do hope that I can have this procedure done. I like the fact that there is no surgery involved and it is fast. And not painful either, which is a huge plus. Looking forward to losing some of my chin at least!
