WHAT IS DOUBLE CHIN?
A young and harmonious face is supposed to be oval. Over time and through weight gain, this dreaded double chin may make an unwanted appearance. A double chin is an accumulation of fat on the neck, under the chin. It is not well accepted by sufferes because it is unsightly and tends to overshadow the natural oval lines of the face.
CRYOLIPOLYSIS TO TREAT DOUBLE CHIN?
It is possible to perform double chin liposuction however some non-invasive procedures are also available. Cryolipolysis treats double chin effectively through the application of intense cold on the fat deposit throught small, specially designed applicators. This procedure is performed without anaesthesia and offers durable and visible results in 1 to 2 sessions.
HOW IT WORK?
The principle of cryolipolysis is to intensely cool a localised fat deposit and apply a strong aspiration pressure to induce ischemia and thus modify the adipocytes configuration. This change in cellular state from a normal body temperature (37ºC) to negative temperatures (up to -9ºC) sends an apoptosis chemical message to the adipocytes. The fat content is released, the dead cells are progressively eliminated through the lymphatic system and the treated volume loses fat cell density.
