Double Chin-New Laser Neck Lift Melts Fat and Tightens Chin Skin without Surgery


Do you look in the mirror and see a double chin that you just can’t stand? Millions of people do. A tight neck line and jaw line create a beautiful, youthful and fit look to the face. Previously a surgical neck or face lift was required to correct a double chin and or jowls.

Today, a revolutionary new Laser Liposuction method can melt fat and tighten skin and correct the double chin and jowls without surgery and neck lift scars! The new technology uses a 924 and combined 924/975 laser wavelength to melt neck fat and tighten chin skin and remove a double chin without surgery, a true nonsurgical neck lift. This new technology is called SlimLipo®, which is very different than SmartLipo®-a 1064nm laser, and Coolipo®, a 1308nm laser.

What Causes Double Chin? – Heredity!
You inherit your chin and neck structure from your parents. Look at mom and dad-chances are if one of them has a double chin or jowls you will too.

Technically, it has to do with the size of your chin bone, the length of your jaw bone, and the position of your hyoid bone-often referred to as your “Adams apple”. If you have a “weak chin”-called microgenia- a short jaw line, and your “Adams apple” is lower down in your neck, you are vulnerable to developing a double chin.

Weight Gain Makes a Double Chin Worse

When you gain weight, fat is stored beneath the skin on your neck. As fat accumulates beneath the neck skin below your chin, the skin bulges and a double chin is made worse.

Facial Aging and Skin Sag Make a Double Chin Worse and Create Jowls

Most people really begin to notice a double chin in their late 30’s, some in their late 20’s. This is because our skin begins to show signs of aging, skin sag or skin laxity, starting in our 30’s. Also, if we don’t eat right and stay fit, our metabolism slows down and we don’t burn off as much fat. The fat accumulates beneath the chin and makes the double chin worse.

How to Get Rid of a Double Chin

Every face is different and requires evaluation and choosing the appropriate method for getting rid of a double chin. However the methods to get rid of a double chin are the following:

• Remove neck fat from the double chin
• Tighten the neck skin of the double chin
• In some cases lengthen the chin

Techniques for double chin removal

Before now getting rid of a double chin required surgery including:
Surgical Removal of Double Chin:

• Neck Lift
• Face Lift
• Liposuction
• Chin Implant

These techniques for removing a double chin can produce dramatic and excellent results (see photo at beginning of article). However surgery leaves scars and has risks. Standard liposuction leaves loose sagging skin beneath the chin which often has to be removed.

Newer revolutionary laser technology has made it possible to get rid of a double chin without complex surgery and scars:

Nonsurgical Removal of Double Chin

• Laser Chin Fat Melting and Neck Skin Tightening

How Does Laser Removal of Double Chin Work?

New patented laser wavelengths have been developed which are specifically absorbed by fat. The new 924nm laser wavelength is absorbed by fat 5 times more effectively than other laser wavelengths. Thus the SlimLipo® 924nm laser can be used to effectively melt fat that causes the double chin. The 975nm laser is designed to tighten skin, thus the 924/975nm combination is used to melt fat and tighten skin beneath the chin and in the neck.
Results of the laser nonsurgical chin lift can be stunning (see photo below before and 4 days after SlimLipo® of the chin and a small chin implant):
