Double Chin

What is a double chin?

A double chin, otherwise known as “submental fat”, is a condition where there’s a layer of fat that forms under the chin. If you have this cosmetic condition, you might think it makes you look fatter and uglier. Many people have this condition, and many want to get rid of it even though it poses no health risks. Let’s find out what you can do about it.

What causes a double chin?

People believe that double chins are mainly due to someone being overweight. While this is true, you don’t actually have to be overweight to have a double chin. There could also be other aggravating factors like someone’s genetics or having looser skin due to ageing.

The following are factors that contribute to a double chin:

The following are factors that contribute to a double chin:

  • Ageing
    The skin loses elasticity as we age, which can lead to saggy skin that causes a double chin.
  • Diet and weight
    While weight gain isn’t always the cause of a double chin, it is one of the reasons why you could have one. A diet high in calories, processed foods and unhealthy fats can cause weight gain and eventually a double chin.
  • Genetics
    Genetics may play a role in developing a double chin. Those with a family history of skin with poor elasticity or double chins are more likely to get a double chin themselves.
  • Poor posture
    Poor posture can weaken the muscles in the neck and chin, which causes the surrounding skin to loosen as they lose elasticity. Over time, this contributes to a double chin.

How is double chin removal done at The Artisan Clinic?

Picosure Laser

The Picosure Laser is so named because of its picosecond laser – the pulse duration of the laser is one-trillionth of a second. This patented technology allows laser beams to penetrate deeper into the skin to allow for effective collagen production.

Each Pico Laser has different pulse durations ranging from 450 picoseconds to 750 picoseconds. The shorter pulse duration gives it better safety, higher efficacy and reduced damage and discomfort as compared to normal nanolasers.

With Picosure Laser, we’re sure you’ll get rid of all your skin issues in no time.

Keep In Mind

PicoSure, PicoPlus and PicoWay are different brands of picosecond lasers. You can have the best picosecond laser in the world, but the doctor’s diagnosis, choice of treatment protocol and way of handling the machine is way more important.

The settings of the pico laser has to be adjusted to fit the patient’s condition, and a good doctor should be able to tweak accordingly.

Do your research and make sure the doctor has a good track record of using pico lasers on Asian skin.

Potenza

Potenza is a radiofrequency (RF) microneedling technique that combines monopolar and bipolar RF at 1 or 2 MHz frequencies in a single device. Heat and microwounds created by ultrafine needles are used to trigger the skin’s natural healing response, so that collagen and elastin are remodelled and regenerated.

The microneedles use Tiger Tip technology, meaning they can deliver RF energy at 2 different depths in a single treatment, thus saving time and reducing discomfort for the patient. The RF energy is delivered deep into the skin to produce dramatic results, helping to improve any signs of ageing and improve blemishes or scars.

Aging is inevitable but you can choose to age gracefully.
