The FDA Approves SculpSure for Use on Double Chins

Posted by Aesthetics on Jan 25, 2018 8:00:00 AM

Even noninvasive aesthetics treatments come with a lot of questions: Will it hurt? Will I love the results? What kind of training has my doctor had? Is it reversible? How much downtime should I expect? What about side effects? But one thing you should never have to worry about is safety. If you’re interested in reshaping your body using a laser body contouring method that fights fat at the source, you’ll be thrilled to know that the revolutionary system known as SculpSure® is now FDA approved for yet another amazing use — fighting submental fat. Aesthetics-January-SculpSure

Why You Need Help with Chin Fat Removal

If you’ve been searching for ways to treat double chin issues and finding yourself frustrated by the lack of noninvasive options, you’re not alone. Many of us have studied a selfie and scrutinized that extra layer of wobble. Maybe it’s just starting to peek out and alter your profile, or perhaps it’s bugged you for years. Either way, you’ve toyed with upping your exercise and rededicating yourself to a healthier diet, and nothing has made a difference. That makes sense as submental fat, otherwise known as a double chin, is one of those problem zones that won’t respond to normal fat-reduction techniques. You can crunch and do cardio until you have abs of steel and a four-minute mile and you’re still probably going to have a chin wiggle if you had one already.

Then there’s laser fat removal, also known as the fat-fighting power of SculpSure. 

Daring to Change Your Double Chin

SculpSure works by using an advanced laser to target fat cells. While the surface of your skin stays cool, the underlying fat cells are heated until they’re destroyed, and once they’re gone, they’re gone for good. Your body will naturally eliminate any cellular debris over a period of about six weeks, which is — not coincidentally — about the same time it takes to start seeing results, with optimal results achieved at around the 12-week point.

Each treatment session only lasts about 25 minutes, and there is no downtime needed afterwards. Patients report that their session is quick, easy and comfortable enough that they can listen to music, read a book or answer emails on their tablet. All in all, it’s a wonderful alternative to more invasive approaches that are more painful and potentially cause unsightly scars or tell-tale swelling.

Getting the Green Light from the FDA

While SculpSure has been used as an FDA-approved fat removal treatment to transform abdominal and thigh areas for ages, it has just now received that same approval for targeting double chins. This change in policy comes after a 57-person clinical trial showed incredible results. The majority of study participants had two SculpSure treatments six weeks apart. The satisfaction rate was a whopping 100 percent, and the visible outcomes were equally impressive. That data was enough to spur the FDA into action, and now thousands of people will have access to a safe, effective system for zapping their way to a sleeker, more contoured look.

If you’ve been on the fence about tackling your double chin fat, this treatment may be just the encouragement you need to sit up, smile and let your profile shine. Eager to learn more?
