Some fat melts away with diet and exercise; some fat stays put no matter what you try.
Submental fat is the stubborn type that settles under your jawline and gives the impression of a double chin. For years, the only way to remove that persistent pocket of fat was through plastic surgery or liposuction, two invasive procedures that require significant downtime.
If you’re looking for a faster, safer, better option, come to Holladay Dermatology & Aesthetics. Dr. Robert Topham and our team help women and men throughout the greater Salt Lake City, Utah, area lose their double chins and recontour their bodies with truSculpt® 3D, a groundbreaking technology that melts away stubborn fat.
truSculpt 3D vs. diet and exercise
When you need to lose pounds, diet and exercise are the keys to achieving your goal. Burning more calories than you consume shrinks fat cells, so you lose weight.
However, you can’t choose where your body will shed the fat. For example, if you have a muffin top or an oversized bottom, diet and exercise won’t help you target those areas and shrink those specific fat cells. When your body goes into weight-loss mode, it loses fat gradually all over, and the places you lose it depend on your genetic makeup, metabolism, age, and other factors.
The good news is that truSculpt 3D achieves what diet and exercise alone can’t — spot reduction.
This technology bypasses your metabolism, disregards your age and genetics, and targets the specific fat cells you want to eliminate, including those that have camped out under your chin.
On the other hand, truSculpt can’t match a sensible diet and exercise routine when it comes to overall weight loss. In fact, it’s not considered a weight loss treatment at all, but rather a fat loss treatment designed to target specific areas of diet- and exercise-resistant fat in people who are already close to their ideal weight.
How truSculpt 3D shrinks your double chin
Our truSculpt 3D treatment uses various handheld devices depending on the size of your treatment area. We can use this amazing technology to reduce fat and contour your torso, thighs, and arms.
We use the smallest device to target the submental fat under your chin. When we apply the device to your skin and move it over the area, it emits radiofrequency (RF) energy that penetrates your skin’s layers and zeroes in on the subcutaneous fat below.
The RF energy gently heats the fat cells, liquifies and destroys them, and marks them for removal by your body’s waste system.
The truSculpt 3D treatment is completely noninvasive and painless. This FDA-approved technology is quick — most sessions last about 15 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area — and requires no downtime.
You may notice mild redness and swelling immediately after treatment, but those symptoms fade quickly. It usually takes a couple of sessions to achieve your desired results, and you’ll start to see a difference in a month or two as your body flushes out the damaged fat cells. On average, truSculpt 3D destroys up to 24% of the fat cells in the targeted area per session.
