There are a fair few reasons why people may develop a double chin, from unwanted weight gain, ageing or genetics, but the good news is that there is a highly-effective, non-surgical option to treat double chins.
Double chins are in effect a result of loose skin, excess neck fat, sagging platysma muscles or underlying bone structure that causes a small or retracted chin.
Ordinarily, people wanting to reduce their double chins would have to consider invasive surgery to remove underlying fat through liposuction, or in extreme cases even undergo reconstructive surgery, all with the usual long recovery times, bruising, pain and other side effects.
What High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) offers is an effective non-surgical treatment that uses soundwaves to stimulate collagen production in the SMAS layers of the skin, safely reducing wrinkles, tightening skin and creating rejuvenated body contours for a face lift without the pain and invasive surgery.
What is the SMAS layer, you ask?
Simply put, the SMAS layer is the superficial musculoaponeurotic system – an organized fibrous network composed of the platysma muscle, parotid fascia, and fibromuscular layer covering the cheek.
By stimulating the skin in the cheek, neck and jaw area, HIFU promotes collagen production, reduces dead skin cells and fat and tightens the skin to give you a younger, more rejuvenated look.
HIFU can be done in the comfort of your home using one our ULTRAISER portable HIFU devices, with minimal training and complication.
HIFU can be used on various parts of the body to reduce wrinkles, tighten skin and promote a younger look, including eyebrows, eyelids, upper chest, arms, thighs, stomach and more.
One of the other major benefits of using our ULTRAISER P1 device is that it requires no recovery time, meaning that once you’ve finished your treatment you can carry on with your day as normal.
