Bye Bye Double Chin! Light Therapy Helps to Remove the Stubborn Fat Under Your Chin
Your face is the first thing people notice about you, and it stares back at you every time you see a mirror. If you aren’t friends with your image in the mirror because of a double chin, it can be an annoying reminder of the aging process at best and hurtful to your self-esteem at worst.
You don’t have to have plastic surgery to see results that rid you of a double chin. Advances in technology and some simple exercises can help you see the return of your younger jawline.
Youthful skin has an abundance of collagen and elastin to keep the skin smooth, firm, and plump. But, in your 20’s, collagen decreases, elastin breaks down, and cells don’t turn over. By age 30, your skin loses half its collagen. Once collagen breaks down, the skin loses firmness and elasticity, resulting in wrinkles, crow’s feet, loss of firmness, and dullness. At the same time, the layer of skin beneath the dermis begins to thin.
The body is always looking for new places to put fat cells, and one area it particularly likes is the top part of the front of your neck, right underneath your jaw. The technical name for this is ‘submental fat.’ If too much fat gets stored in this area and the skin isn’t taut enough to hold that canopy up in the battle with gravity, you can look in the mirror and find that it looks like you’ve grown a second chin. This can even continue developing into a triple or quadruple chin. The two factors you need to be aware of as you read on are fat levels and skin tautness.
What About the Creams?
In a word? No. Why don’t double-chin creams work? Because they’re not removing the bulk of the fat cells that are creating the double chin, nor are they tightening up the sagging skin, letting that double chin flop forward. Perhaps, if a double-chin cream is one that contains active ingredients such as high-strength vitamin C and retinol or another retinoid, it may be strengthening the skin. Still, this effect won’t be strong enough to rein in an existing double chin.
Then, What to Do?
Low levels of infrared light waves applied to the chin’s skin can achieve excellent results and help you lose a double chin. Applying heat to the deeper layers of the skin while keeping the upper layers cool appears to trigger the skin’s ability to renew the collagen beneath the skin’s surface layers.
Changes in skin thickness, elasticity, and tightness were visible changes that patients noticed when their double chin was treated with infrared light. These near-infrared devices are handheld systems that a dermatologist or physician can apply in an outpatient procedure with no pain.
