Mesotherapy for Double Chin Treatment:
Mesotherapy, the first type of treatment at Al-Qudrah, is a process in which injections can target an area where accumulated fat is to be melted. The injection is made up of a solution that has enzymes and acids needed for targeting fat cells.
This process is minimally invasive and relatively less painful. Some patients may prefer to use numbing cream at designated areas. Doctors first mark the area that is to be treated with mesotherapy. After that, with injections, subcutaneous fat cells are targeted and destroyed so that more fat does not accumulate there.
You can see visible results of the treatment in a few weeks. In order to obtain a satisfactory result, a few more sessions, some weeks apart, are recommended by the doctor. A few sessions and a few injections can produce permanent results of fat reduction in your chin.
The Al-Qudrah Commitment to You:
The treatment provides a much less invasive approach to get rid of double chin.
With simple injections injected by a trained and licensed provider, it’s possible for you to accomplish the profile and appearance you really want.
Fast and easy
Our team will articulate your individual needs and concerns and determine how many injections are appropriate to achieve the desired results. The injections inserted in the double chin comprise of deoxycholic acid, which helps in the breakdown of fat cells before being absorbed and banished from the body.

With virtually little to no downtime at all after receiving treatment, you may return to and resume your everyday activities immediately. Although there may be some minor and temporary effects, this lasts for a short time and eventually dissipates.
You will not require any further treatment afterward. The excess fat cells will be gone for good, and you’ll enjoy a younger, more refreshed appearance.
A double chin often makes people appear older than they actually are, and nobody wants that. By getting rid of a double chin, not only is the jawline redefined, but your overall appearance is also more youthful and your confidence stays in check all the time.
Results you can trust
Radio Frequency for Double Chin Treatment:
Radio Frequency is one of the most popular treatments for double chin at Al-Qudrah Medical Center. It is a non-invasive and painless procedure. Similar to previous treatments, radio frequency targets fat cells in skin layers and melts to reduce double chin. This is highly effective for small fatty deposits like chubby cheeks and double chin.
This procedure not only melts fats but also activates collagen in your skin giving it youthful look. Moreover, it is a quick and comparatively cheaper procedure.
Plastic Surgery for Double Chin Treatment:
This is an invasive procedure through which fat is extracted from under the skin layers. There are many procedures that a surgeon can employ to provide you with desired results. One such procedure is liposuction where after making an incision, fat is sucked out with a vacuum.
Another method is submentoplasty where liposuction is paired with smaller incision on the neck to tighten muscles. Neck lift is also a surgical procedure where excess skin is removed or tightened. You may not be a good candidate for submetoplasty or liposuction if you skin is saggy or isn’t very elastic.
Since these are invasive procedures, there can be risks involving anesthesia, bleeding. swelling, discomfort etc. Our team at Al Qudrah will help you decide if plastic surgery is best for you. Any risks involved will also be communicated to you prior to any treatment.
HIFU for Double Chin Treatment:
HIFU stands for High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound. This is also a non-invasive and painless procedure at Al-Qudrah Medical Center. HIFU is used in several skin treatments as it increases activity of collagen in your skin and produces a firmer, tighter skin as a result.
In case of double chin treatment, HIFU produces a clear jawline, as well as firmer and youthful skin by reducing fat in double chin. The HIFU hand piece targets ultrasound waves at the fat layers and destroys fat cells. You can see proper results in 3 to 6 months.

Causes of a Double Chin
Before deciding on what treatment should you opt for, there are a number of factors which can lead to a double chin. Knowing these would help your dental surgeon in understanding which treatment suits you best. Some common factors are:
As you age, your body starts to lose its elasticity. This leads to extra sagginess of the skin which leads to the formation of double chin.
Diet and weight
Having sudden weight gain also contributes towards a double chin. Also if you couple it with a high intake of processed foods, it leads to disastrous effects on your body.
Genes is also a major contributing factor. Having a family history of skin elasticity, double chin is something you just might inherit from your ancestors.
Having a poor posture is also a contributing factor as if you are not using your muscles well; they can lead to skin sagging and double chin development.

What is lipolysis?
Lipolysis is basically a method which prompts accumulated fat in the body to break down through the action of enzyme or heat. There are many sources through which lipolysis or the process of melting fat can take place e.g. injections and laser.
Double chin can be treated with such techniques where fats can be broken down by targeting subcutaneous layer of the skin where fat accumulates. Mesotherapy, laser lipolysis, HIFU and radiofrequency basically use the same logic as the basis of their procedures.
What is the best treatment for double chin?
The best treatment can vary from person to person. As mentioned in detail above, it depends on your desire, medical history and skin condition.

There are some exercises that you can do to help your double chin reduce but they can be effective to a certain limit. Other than surgery, there are non-invasive procedures mentioned above that can be an option for you.
Can chewing gum reduce face fat?

Because there are several different approaches, double chin surgery varies in cost, from $1,200 to $12,700, according to the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery.

Does chin implant make your face look longer?
A properly positioned chin implant will not make your face look more oblong. If the chin implant was an incorrect shape or placed too low, it may make the face appear longer. However, a properly shaped and positioned implant will add width to the lower face and improve the facial profile projection.
How can I improve my chin?
Chinup. This exercise helps lift the face and chin muscles. With your mouth closed, push your lower jaw out and lift your lower lip. You should feel a stretch build just under the chin and in the jawline.
Why do I have a double chin when I'm skinny?
The first thing to look at when someone has a double chin is their weight. For the most part, the primary cause of double chins in people is their general body fat level, or how much fat percentage they have in their body.
What food causes double chin?
A diet high in calories, processed foods, and unhealthful fats may influence weight gain and a double chin as well. Genes may play a role in people developing a double chin.

While this condition may not be as apparent at a young age, the natural aging process can make a genetic double chin especially pronounced, usually starting in the 40s and occasionally earlier.
