As time goes by, fat can accumulate under the chin, this is called submental fat: ‘mentum’ is Latin for chin, and ‘sub’ means under. The result is commonly referred to as a double chin, and submental fat reduction
is becoming a very popular treatment for both women and men. Unfortunately, removing submental fat has not been a particularly easy or successful treatment, at least up till now. One method is to use laser energy at specific wavelengths to target the fat cells, employing a special delivery device contoured to fit the area being treated, and destroy them selectively by gently melting them: this is called laser lipolysis (‘lipo’ = fat, and ‘lysis’ = melting) The SculpSure Submental attachment, designed to operate with the well-proven SculpSure Body Contouring system, is the world’s first FDA-cleared laser treatment for non-invasive lipolysis specifically for submental fat, and offers a comfortable and well-tolerated treatment for any skin type. The procedure takes only 25 minutes and can destroy a large proportion of the treated fat cells without surgery. Results are often seen after one treatment, but for optimal results you may require more than one treatment depending upon your body shape & areas of concerns.
