People both thin and fat can be victims to getting a double chin. The reasons can range from genetic disposition to obesity as well as ageing. Other issues include “turkey necks” and drooping jowls. Once a upon a time in cosmetologist history, this was addressed by liposuction while the facelift allowed for skin to be tightened at the hands of a skilled plastic surgeon to get optimal results. For those too afraid to go under surgery, turtleneck sweaters and scarves allowed them to hide their insecurities from the world but learnt to live with it either way.
Modern methods to non-surgically reduce a double chin and tighten loose skin have been surfacing over the years with varying degrees of successful results. No longer should anyone live with low-self esteem about themselves if they wish to do something about it. Read on to find out how to reduce a double chin using new treatments and exercises that actually work.
Kybella injections have only been invented and commercially produced since last year but it is a revolutionary approach to treating chin fat without surgery. With a main active ingredient called deoxycholic acid it manages to break down fat, accumulated through the diet, into soluble compounds. Once injected into the sub-cutaneous layer of tissue, the affected fat cells disintegrate and are not able to once again be restored. The surgeon’s assistant will mark a grid carefully over the area that needs to be treated and using that grid as a guide, the surgeon will determine how many injections will be needed. The whole procedure is neat and quick.
Kybella has been approved by the FDA and it’s the first injectable of its kind that can be used to permanently reduce double chin fat in varying degrees of stubbornness. Already this non-surgical procedure has sky rocketed in popularity due to its efficiency and convenience to patients.
This procedure makes use of concentrated ultrasound pulses that invigorate deep tissue boosts the natural human regenerative power in order to achieve muscle tone, texture lifting and skin tightening. By running a device over the body in the area that is treated, the surgeon will follow a projection on the monitor and regulate the bursts of heat in specific areas to penetrate structural layers of the skin causing the stimulation of skin collagen and rejuvenates the skin. Time can be turned back with the effects Ultherapy has that are visible with patient treatment after a period of time and gradually people become more youthful instead of growing older.
Coolsculpting techniques have been around for a while and were previously used to address bulging fat around the waist and limbs. Even today it remains a popular non-invasive alternative to liposuction. To reduce a double chin the practitioner will begin by placing a protective gel pad on the treatment area. With the aid of two cooling panels, skin is drawn up between them and then the device delivers carefully regulated temperatures targeting fat deposits beneath the skin to safely contour the chin and neck area. By lowering the temperature appropriately, the device manages to crystallize the fat cells causing them to die off and metabolized by the body overtime.
Along with new treatment, users can always try various exercises to achieve natural results. Here are three such effective workouts for your neck to reduce double chin.
Simply lie down on your back over your bed or elevated flat surface with your head hanging down over the edge. Let your head hang relaxingly then begin the first rep by tightening the front neck muscles going through a slow lift of your head ending in a curl of the head towards your chest to the very limit that you can go while keeping your back straight and shoulders squarely on the bed. Hold the position for 6-10 seconds, then as slow as you started; return to the start position without letting your head drop. If you feel dizzy after a couple of reps you can sit up and take a break or you can do the exercise by lying on the floor and your start position would be with your back and neck in a straight line.
While staying in a standing or seated pose stretch out your backbone achieving a tall straight posture. This rep begins by keeping your lips closed and closing then opening your jaws to imitate munching. While you do that inhale long and deep through your nose then hum as you exhale. As you get ready for another inhale, let your mouth open as far as it can go by pushing your tongue at the back of your bottom front teeth while keeping your neck straight. Inhale slowly and then exhale, releasing a clear “aaah” sound as you hold that position. One rep would approximately take a minute or more. Two to three reps are enough for one workout.
Stand straight and tall in the same position as before while keeping your arms lose by your side, tilt your head back until you are looking toward the sky without straining your eyes. Form a kiss by pouting your lips and pushing as far out as they can go in a kissing motion making your skin tighten around the neck and chin. Hold the position for 5 seconds then start by relaxing your lips and finally return your face back to starting position while your back remains straight. A total of 10-15 reps can be done in two sets for your daily workout.
