SculpSure Chin Contouring Q & A

What causes sagging chin fat?

A “turkey neck” or “double chin” is the name often used for the drooping skin underneath the chins. Several factors influence the development of a double chin:

  • Aging: leads to skin laxity, muscle weakening, and loss of elasticity
  • Gravity: pulls the under-chin fat downward over time
  • Significant weight changes: contribute to chin fat or loose under-chin skin
  • Genetics: may make you predisposed to a double chin

What is SculpSure® chin contouring?

SculpSure chin contouring is a safe, effective laser treatment that destroys fat under your chin. The lasers use a precise frequency that targets fat cells without harming the skin.

The laser heat breaks down the fat cells in your neck, and your lymphatic system then washes the compromised fat cells out of your body for good.

Those missing fat cells can’t reappear once they’re gone. As the skin and remaining fat adjust to the space left by the missing cells, the effect diminishes your double chin. Ultimately, this non-invasive treatment emphasizes your natural face definition without surgery.

What happens during a SculpSure chin contouring session?

Dr. Emery discusses your treatment with you and assesses the affected area. Next, he gives you eye protection and a disposable hair net, while securing the adjustable headgear in place.

Next, he attaches the laser applicator to the frame under your chin. The applicator is attached to a long tube that extends out of the treatment console.

Once the applicator is in place, you can lie back on the treatment table during the 25-minute treatment session. Dr. Emery programs the machine to begin and monitors you during the procedure.

You may feel a deep penetrating heat or a tingly feeling from the lasers, but the treatment itself shouldn’t be painful. Surface cooling technology counteracts the heat to keep your skin comfortable.

Once the procedure is over, Dr. Emery removes the headgear and explains post-treatment instructions. Then, you’re free to leave and go about your day.
