Submental Fat Treatment
SculpSure is FDA-cleared for non-invasive lipolysis of submental fat, which uses light-based technology to safely heat and destroy fat under the skin. This treatment complements the platform’s other indications including the abdomen, flanks, back and inner and outer thighs. This new technology is optimized to eliminate unwanted fat under the chin. Our applicator design is perfect for providing precise and effective treatments resulting in a slimmer appearance of the chin and neck.
What is SculpSure® chin contouring?
SculpSure chin contouring uses the innovative laser technology of SculpSure to target the area under your chin. SculpSure uses lasers to heat up the fat cells below your skin. This heat undermines the structural integrity of the cells, and they are destroyed and ultimately eliminated.
Over the following weeks, your body will use its lymphatic system to remove the destroyed fat cells. The result is a sleeker, more contoured chin region without any invasive procedures. What’s more, there’s no pain or downtime.
If SculpSure uses heat, will it hurt me?
The beauty of the SculpSure system is the way it combines its laser technology that reaches under the skin with a cooling mechanism that interacts with the skin itself. During any SculpSure treatment, the cooling mechanism runs the entire time, keeping your skin comfortable.
Some patients report feeling a deep, radiant warmth during SculpSure treatments, but that sensation usually doesn’t accompany any discomfort. In fact, the procedure is designed to be completely painless.
Is SculpSure chin contouring permanent?
Yes. The fat cells destroyed by the SculpSure laser will not regenerate, meaning each patient is left with permanent results. While the results will be long-lasting, they are not immediate. The SculpSure system destroys your fat cells during the treatment, but it will take time for your body to flush them out.
Most patients start to see results within six weeks. The final results will be revealed when your body has had time to eliminate the destroyed fat cells. This process usually takes about 12 weeks. Please note, though, that while the targeted fat cells are destroyed and eliminated, new ones can form if you aren’t mindful of keeping weight off through diet and exercise.
Is downtime needed with SculpSure chin contouring?
SculpSure treatments are painless and require no downtime. Some patients get treatments at lunchtime and go right back to work. Each SculpSure treatment takes about 30 minutes.
Furthermore, the specialists at Irvine Family Care use Nitronox, a safe and effective pain relief gas, as an added measure to ensure their patients stay comfortable throughout the process. And because Nitronox leaves the system quickly, you can drive away right after your procedure.
While the SculpSure laser system targets the fat cells under your skin, your skin is completely unaffected. You’ll leave your appointment without any signs you had a procedure.
