Studies found that 73% of men and women are bothered by excess fat under the chin, known as submentum fat. SculpSure, the FDA-cleared treatment for non-invasive lipolysis of submentum fat has been proven to permanently rid this chin fat by up to 23%. For most people, whatever their weight, if they have a double chin, it’s most likely a genetic disposition.

This treatment is similar to SculpSure Laser Fat Body Reduction, but uses an attachment specially made to treat the submentum fat. It fits in like a glove on the chin and it effortlessly destroys fat in this area in 25 minutes.

SculpSure Submentum, is different from other double chin treatments. Unlike other treatments which are only indicated for individuals with a BMI 30, SculpSure Submentum application can treat individuals with a BMI of up to 43. Almost anyone can benefit from this treatment! Moreover, it is more a permanent solution to shrink your double chin compared to the other procedures that offer temporary solutions to shrink fat cells. It’s the world’s first FDA cleared laser treatment for permanent chin fat reduction. SculpSure Submentum is a non-invasive procedure that does not include invasive painful needles or aggressive suction, pulling, (remove sucking, it’s the same as suction sucking) or painful massaging, bruising or swelling, which may result in an uneven lumpy result.

Procedures take only 25-minutes, have no downtime, have a high safety profile and patients see a slimmer and more natural looking result. Males and females especially love having a more defined jaw by having their chin fat reduced.

Depending on your desired look a patient would normally need 2-3 treatments. A minimum of 2 treatments are advised for this area of the body.

Common Questions about This Treatment

It uses patented laser technology to heat up targeted fat cells under the chin. The laser increases the temperature of fat cells while still keeping the skin surface cold, protecting the epidermis. Over the next three months, the treated fat cells are eliminated through the body’s natural processes through the lymphatic system. The treated fat cells are permanently removed and cannot regenerate over time. This is because we develop a finite number of fat cells in adolescence which are dynamic, ie they get bigger or smaller. We don’t “grow’” new ones. The results of the treatment can be seen as quickly as six weeks, and optimal results are usually seen after 12 weeks, sometimes longer, depending on the patient’s general health and how easily their lymphatic system is stimulated and drains away the destroyed fat cells.On average this is 23%.

Firstly, this treatment is very well tolerated and no analgesia or numbing creams are necessary. During fat destruction phase, the heat of the laser cycles on and off, destroying the fat cells. Patients normally feel a deep warmth, with or without a tingling sensation at irregular intervals throughout the procedure which is (remove this generally) well-tolerated. All treatments are preceded by a free consultation with our doctor to determine whether you are a suitable candidate and the treatment is discussed with all your questions answered. Pre-treatment photos are taken, (with the client’s consent) and measurements of the area are taken to compare the difference down the track. Post treatment instructions are given, to set you up for the best chance of success from your treatment. All patients are followed up at 6 weeks and at 12 weeks post their first treatment so we can stay connected with you throughout your journey.
