Defined as an accumulation of fatty tissue under the skin of the chin, the double chin is found in both men and women. It ages and weighs down the facial features, with a slumped and tired look. Cryolipolysis is an aesthetic medicine treatment for erasing stubborn fat celles, thanks to the destruction of fat by a cold at -10° C. The Coolsculpting® chin applicator will destroy 25 to 30% of fat cells in a single session, without pain, without anesthesia, without liposuction.
Causes : what is double chin?
The accumulation of subcutaneous fat between the neck and the tip of the chin characterizes the appearance of the double chin. The fat can sometimes be found in the deeper layers of the skin muscle, the platysma.
Where does the double chin come from?
The main cause of double chin is the development of fatty deposits: diet, genetic or hormonal factors contribute to the development of these fatty deposits.
These fat cells are practically impossible to get rid of with physical exercise or diet.
Sagging skin can in some cases worsen a double chin, because the skin and the SMAS (superficial musculo aponeurotic system of the platysma muscle) loose tonicity (less collagen) and elasticity (less elastin).
Fat increases the effect of gravity: the more gravity increases, the more the skin slackens and distends.
In some cases, a defect in projection or advancement (retrogenesis) can create a double chin: there is less hard tissue and proportionally more soft tissue, which then creates this effect because they are no longer put under tension by the mandibular projection.
There is often little fat and chin cryolipolysis is in that case non-effective.
What are the effects on the double chin?
From an aesthetic point of view, the double chin can erase the natural line between the neck and the face. It can accelerate the sagging of the oval of the face due to gravity.
A double chin also gives off negative expressions, with a slouchy, tired, unwilling, or even (unfair) form of neglect.
It is sometimes a real issue in the professional world, after the age of forty.
Indications: cryolipolysis of the double chin to slim the face.
Coolsculpting ® is an ideal cryolipolysis device for the chin. In 1 or 2 sessions, it destroys fat without surgery or liposuction.
This fat removal gives the features a dynamic and rejuvenated expression.
Your practitioner at Clinique des Champs Elysées New York will verify the absence of general (rare, such as cold agglutinin disease) or local counter-indications ( significant progeny or retrogeny; significant skin sagging).
Follow a cryolipolysis double chin session
Clinique des Champs Elysées New York works with Coolsculpting, the first cryolipolysis device in the world to be approved as safe and effective:
-It offers a special chin applicator; it is painless as the cold acts as an effective anesthetic;
-It delivers intense cold (-10°C), allowing shorter sessions; the weakened adipocytes will die and be resorbed;
-It is very safe thanks to the patented Freeze Detect Sensor ®, which controls the temperature of the dermis and the skin.
Coolsculpting session lasts 30 to 60 minutes and ends with an emollient treatment to be repeated for a few days.
Coolsculpting ® results on the double chin
One to two sessions offer optimal results, since a single session destroys 1/4 to 1/3 of the fat in the double chin. The result can only be seen after a month when resorption starts.
The result is definitive after about 2 months.
The destruction is definitive because the fat cells cannot regenerate: however, a healthy lifestyle is necessary, otherwise the remaining adipocytes will be storing new fat.
A thinner chin is synonymous with dynamism, willpower and youthfulness.
