How to get rid of the double chin - ways and treatments to improve the jaw line
Where does it comes from, or how a double chin is formed
Face is the most prominent part of our body. No wonder that every flaw - especially that appearing with age - reduces self-esteem and self-confidence. A double chin is an aesthetic problem that can be caused by excessive weight and obesity. However, it often occurs also in slim people. Where does a double chin come from?
Its causes can be quite ordinary. As a result of gravity, the fat tissue moves from the cheek downwards - right around the chin. Then we lose youthful curves on the face, and in return, we get an unattractive skin that disrupts the chin shape. With age we also notice changes in the skeletal system and sagging skin. In women this is related, among others, to hormonal changes during and after menopause.
Some patients are predisposed to a double chin due to their anatomical structure - not so strong jawline and receding chin. A wrong posture is also unfortunate - especially if your face is sloped down, e.g. during too long and too frequent viewing of your smartphone or tablet screen. All this makes it necessary to remove the double chin even in quite young patients.
How to get rid of the double chin and gain a beautiful jawline?
Double chin reduction may consist of exercises or aesthetic medicine treatments. In the first case, training involves repeating a few simple steps every day.
Exercise 1. Tilt your head to the right side, touch your shoulder with your chin. Raise and lower your tongue inside your mouth. Repeat 15 times. Do the same exercise on the left side. Train for at least 10 minutes per day.
Exercise 2. Lie on your back on a hard surface and bend your legs in your knees. Place your hands along the body. Lift your head and shoulders in the direction of your chest. At the same time, pull your neck out and tighten your belly muscles. Practice for 10-15 minutes a day.
Elimination of a double chin is also facilitated by the use of moisturizing creams and massaging yourself - massage the neck using circular movement from the bottom to the top. The effectiveness of massage will be strengthened by gentle pinching of the skin. You can also book a face massage performed by a cosmetician - it is not only a way to get rid of a double chin, but also a great relaxation treatment.
Double chin - treatments that bring the effect!
Attempts to reduce a double chin by yourself through exercise, massages and creams do not always bring the expected effect. At Sense Med Concept, every patient wishing to improve facial aesthetics may choose from several different treatments for double chin. However, before the treatment the patient attends a medical consultation to determine the optimum course of action.
Liposuction of the chin with cannula
Liposuction of the chin involves insertion of a cannula, a thin tube with a sharp ending like a needle, but with a blunt tip that sucks in the body tissue. A treatment to reduce the chin requires a few incisions, through which the cannula is introduced. At Sense Med Concept, this procedure for double chin is always preceded by a medical consultation. You may need a blood test.
Liposuction of the chin brings effects for both the patients who want to remove unwanted adipose tissue from the chin and neck, as well as those who wish to improve the overall appearance of the face. This is an alternative to a more invasive surgical liposuction, which requires a longer recovery period.
Endermology Alliance is a vacuum massage performed using a device equipped with special flaps. This treatment reduces adipose tissue which is located in places hard to reach or which is resistant, which makes it effective even when repeated exercises have not helped to reduce double chin. Endermolift face treatment is based on the use of a tip with flaps that stimulate the skin by means of mechanical massage.
Endermology of the face brings effects not only in the form of reduction of a double chin, but also an increase in the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. In addition, stimulation of lymph flow helps to remove toxins from the body.
Cryolipolysis of the chin involves reduction of body fat through action of low temperatures. First, a gel pad is applied on the skin, and then the head is adjusted accordingly. Cooling causes apoptosis, a controlled cell death. Facial cryolipolysis is a painless procedure, which results in the removal of a significant amount of adipose tissue from the chin, as well as modelling of the face oval.
The above list is not an exhaustive catalogue of double chin treatments offered to the patients of Sense Med Concept. Other treatments that are worth mentioning include for example Zaffiro Z300 thermoolifting, breakdown of fat cells using TriLipo RF technology based on the three-polar radio wave technology Maximus or HiFu Sonoqueen using high-frequency ultrasounds that give the effect of non-surgical face lifting. Another treatment consists in destroying body fat using microwaves produced in the ONDA device.
