Double Chin/Stubborn Fat Treatments
What Is A Double Chin/Stubborn Fat?
Stubborn fat is something that many of us deal with. At MD Skin Lab, we know the importance of understanding our patients, the causes of their stubborn fat/double chin, and their individual body goals.
Fat in your body is a crucial component of our physiology, serving as insulation, an energy reservoir, and a protective barrier for our vital organs. As we know, not all body fat shares the same characteristics. Various fat types exist; some exhibit more resistance to reduction efforts than others. Subcutaneous fat is any fat below the skin, which can sometimes be diminished through dietary and exercise interventions.
Submental fat, commonly called double chin fat, is a frequent concern for many individuals. This condition refers to the accumulation of excess fat beneath the chin and neck area, resulting in a noticeable bulge. What makes submental fat particularly frustrating for many is its stubborn nature. Despite dedicated efforts involving diet and exercise, it can often prove resistant to conventional weight loss methods. This persistence can be discouraging, prompting individuals to seek alternative treatments to address this challenging cosmetic issue effectively.
What Causes A Double Chin/Stubborn Fat?
Stubborn fat is a type of body fat that is challenging to reduce through conventional diet and exercise efforts. While the precise factors contributing to stubborn fat remain uncertain, several theories have emerged. One theory suggests that hormonal imbalances play a role in its development, while another indicates that toxins within the body may be a contributing factor. Regardless of its underlying causes, dealing with stubborn fat can be frustrating! The encouraging news, however, is that MD Skin Lab offers an array of treatments to enhance the appearance of resistant fat.
Many factors can cause a double chin, on the other hand. Genetics may cause some people to store extra fat in their under-chin area, while others may develop it due to weight gain. Our skin loses elasticity as we age and can begin to sag, contributing to a double chin. Poor posture and an unhealthy lifestyle, such as poor diet and not exercising, can also play a role.
What Are The Double Chin/Stubborn Fat Solutions At MD Skin Lab?
At MD Skin Lab, we understand the importance of treating our patients with individual body goals in mind. Below are the best solutions we offer at our Toronto clinic.
Fat Dissolving Injections
Are you struggling to find a solution to get rid of stubborn body fat? Fortunately, Fat Dissolving Injections like Lipodissolve or Belkyra® can help! This cosmetic procedure utilizes deoxycholic acid injections to break down and dissolve body fat cells. How does it work? Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body that plays a role in breaking down fat. In targeting stubborn fat, deoxycholic acid is injected into specific areas, such as the submental (under the chin) region, to help dissolve and reduce localized fat cells. Our physician injectors can help you achieve a more contoured profile, boosting your confidence!
If you want to improve the youthfulness and appearance of your skin, Morpheus8 is a good option to consider. Morpheus8 uses a handheld device that delivers Radio-Frequency (RF) heat energy to the deeper layer of your skin, called the dermal layer and subcutaneous fat (fat below the skin). The device has small, silicone-coated needles that minimize surface damage while delivering RF energy to deeper skin layers and areas of stubborn fat. This process stimulates collagen and elastin production, making your skin firmer while reducing fat under the chin.
In particular, Morpheus8 allows for customizing treatment depths and energy levels, making it ideal for addressing various skin concerns. The device can be calibrated to target fat deposits precisely when focusing on the submental area (commonly known as the "double chin"). By doing so, it stimulates collagen and elastin production, resulting in firmer, tighter skin. Simultaneously, it effectively breaks down submental fat, enhancing the overall contour of your chin and neck. Moreover, this innovative procedure increases the thickness of the dermal layers, leading to a noticeable and comprehensive improvement in your skin's appearance.
