Double Chin Reduction
The double chin formation takes place due to excess fat deposit, hereditary reasons, facial skeletal structure, airway positioning, and weight gain and this condition is also termed as “submental fullness”. A double chin can affect both thin and fat people, and sometimes the subcutaneous fat around the neck sags down and makes one look older and obese because of the formation of a second chin. The double chin is more visible when the bottom jaw area is lowered and the head is in the tilt-down position. Many people opt for double chin treatment to reduce the fat layer formed under the chin, and to achieve a more rejuvenated appearance. Several approaches can help to slim the chin area, by reducing the fat deposit in the chin area. But before discussing the treatments let’s understand why double chin appears.

Treatments options for Double Chin reduction:
1. Deoxycholic Acid: It is an injectable treatment to reduce double chin. This is a helpful substance that dissolves dietary fat. This chemical is injected inside the skin under the chin that dissolves fat and is further reabsorbed by the body. This non-invasive treatment requires three to six treatment sessions according to the patient's requirement and the amount of fat to be removed from the treated area.
2. Phosphatidylcholine Injections: This substance contains Choline a component of “lecithin”. This chemical is useful for dissolving fat. It is injected deep inside the body through intralipotherapy in the affected area. Very thin and tiny needles are required to perform this therapy, and this treatment is very quick and requires no downtime. Side effects may occur like pain and burning sensation, which subside within a few hours after treatment.
3. High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU): It is a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment for skin tightening. This treatment is also known as ultrasound therapy which also helps to lift and tighten loose and sagging skin. This treatment is very quick and reduces double chin in a very short period of time with no downtime. This treatment aims high-intensity beams by focusing ultrasound waves that target fat cells inside the chin to firm and tighten the skin. This treatment triggers the formation of collagen and elastin and makes the skin more tightened and smoothened.

These are long threads and are composed of a synthetic biodegradable polymer which is best for use in surgery. “COG and MONO” are two types of PDO threads that can be used to treat double chin and face lifting. PDO threads can be absorbed through the hydrolysis process and help in the production of collagen from fibroblasts in a targeted area. MONO threads are smooth and do not contain barbs. It can be hooked to a point on the face. These threads are inserted into the skin for skin tightening in a mesh-like fashion. Areas covered by these threads are necklines and sagging neck. MONO threads can only tighten the skin but a combination of MONO and COG threads are effective for face lifting. COG threads contain barbs ends. It attaches inside the skin and triggers the lifting of the sagging tissue by supporting structure. These threads have no requirement of anchoring points. Collagen production can take place around these threads and barbs ends. These threads are more effective for slimming the face and jawline lifting.
