A double chin, also called submental fat, does not just affect individuals who may be overweight, but can be a problem for anyone, regardless of gender.
As we age, collagen and elastin production in the skin naturally reduces, which leads to laxity. This sagging can contribute to a double chin as it creates the appearance of a pocket of fat at the neck.
Some men and women are predisposed genetically to having a double chin, for others it may be related to weight gain and aging. What’s true for everyone is that it’s quite a challenge to reduce and can make people feel rather self-conscious.
At Intimate You we offer painless, state of the art treatment using the award winning BTL Exilis device.
Exilis delivers highly controlled heat to tissue by using focused radio frequency (RF) technology which heats the under surface of the skin causing collagen remodelling
for measurable cosmetic results in generally 4-6 comfortable treatment sessions at 7-10 day intervals. This device provides the following 2 improvements:
- Skin tightening. Exilis can help tighten aging skin by heating the collagen in the lower layers of the skin. This process causes the deep collagen structures of your skin to tighten immediately so you’ll see firmer skin right after treatment. Over the long term, that heat energy also stimulates future collagen production, so your skin will gradually tighten further giving you a more youthful appearance.
- Rejuvenation. By tightening skin and stimulating collagen, Exilis softens wrinkles and fine lines. This treatment can reduce jowls and redefine the jaw line. It can also tighten and smooth the neck and reduce excess skin under the chin. Many patients use it as an effective, non-surgical alternative to a face lift. Treatments usually take 30 to 60 minutes.
Although you may see immediate results after your treatment session, the major portion of the clinical improvement is evident at 3 MONTHS following your LAST treatment. The results should last about 2yrs
No special preparation is needed except to drink plenty of water beforehand. The non-surgical treatment requires no anesthesia or recovery period. You’re free to return to your usual routine as soon as the session is finished.
