Treatment for submental fat pockets
Excess fat underneath the chin can make you feel self-conscious and unhappy with your appearance. These submental fat pockets, more commonly known as “double chins” are the cause of concern for many people. Furthermore, double chins are not just a problem for heavier people. Even patients who are at a healthy body weight can have issues with the excess fullness.
So what do you do for this stubborn fat that can’t be corrected with diet and exercise alone? At Dermatology on Bloor, we offer two minimally invasive methods for permanently eliminating submental fat pockets, giving patients a sought-after profile. DermOnBloor offers an FDA approved injectable that can permanently minimize fat in this troublesome area; or if preferred we can use Coolsculpting to freeze and destroy the fat under the chin.
Fat Melting Injections
Patients love this minimally invasive treatment because of the subtle way the excess fat is eliminated. Unlike plastic surgery which produces drastic, immediate changes. Friends and family will simply notice that you are looking better, healthier, younger… not that have you had work done.
The treatment is formulated from deoxycholic acid which is used to break down dietary fat. After the injection into the submental fat destroys the fat cells, it eliminates further accumulation of fat in the area. Injections are quick and done in our office. Typically 2-4 treatments are needed, about 1 month apart.
Fat Freezing with CoolSculpt
CoolSculpt treatments work by targeting unwanted fat and allowing your body to metabolize and eliminate them naturally. The machine uses two cold plates and a system similar to a vacuum to pull in the unwanted fat in the desired area. The plates chill the area of fat for approximately an hour, causing the fat cells to crystalize and then slowly dissolve. The newest technology with CoolSculpting allows us to treat the fat pocket under the chin! Other areas that can be treated include abdomen, flanks, thighs and back.
Treating submental fat can do a lot for patients. Feeling good about your appearance can increase confidence and self-esteem, which in turn can boost your personal or business relationships.
