10 Dec TikTokers are All About “How to Get Rid of a Double Chin”
They say pictures don’t lie, but videos are the real harbingers of reality. TikTok is exploding with results for treating double chins, so at RefinedMD we’re not surprised to find phones ringing off the hook for CoolSculpting on the submental area (that’s the double chin). It turns out that 18 months into the new Zoom era, everyone is sick of seeing that turkey waddle on screen. You may have mastered the perfect angle to hide that double chin in selfies, but when it comes to hours of Zoom calls there’s no denying it. It’s official—turkey season was so last month. Now it’s time to get rid of that waddle for good.
Since the pandemic began, Google searches for “how to get rid of a double chin overnight” have increased by 5,000 percent. That’s right, you don’t want to just get rid of a double chin—you want to do it fast. One of the best methods that requires no pain, needles, or downtime is CoolSculpting. You might think that CoolSculpting is just for contouring larger areas like the stomach, and that’s certainly how this innovative technology began. However, there are several modalities of CoolSculpting, including options for treating smaller areas like the double chin.
CoolSculpting the Neck
If you’re familiar with how CoolSculpting works, treating the neck is the exact same approach. The machine targets unwanted fat cells and cools the external skin to the ideal temperature for fat cell “death” to occur. However, CoolSculpting isn’t technically an overnight procedure. Killing and clearing those fat cells takes some time. Most clients require 4 – 6 treatments spaced a few weeks apart for optimal results, which means you’ll be double chin free by summer.
A major benefit to CoolSculpting compared to procedures that do offer overnight results is that there are no scalpels or needles required. Liposuction is a surgery, albeit a relatively minor one when removing fat from the double chin. However, it’s expensive and comes with all the risks of surgery. Plus, there will be a small scar if you go this route. CoolSculpting requires no anesthesia, and most patients kick back and catch up on shows or check emails during their appointments.
Be Sure What You’re Treating
So, are you sure that double chin is caused by fat—or is it lax skin? Or both? For many people it’s actually both, especially if you’re “of a certain age.” The skin in this area is thin, delicate, highly mobile, and routinely exposed to UV rays. This is the perfect storm that leads to skin with less elasticity, which can often lead to the look of a double chin. But don’t worry. You can combine CoolSculpting with skin tightening treatments to give that submental fat area a double whammy. In many cases, this can even be done at the same appointment.
Double chins happen to people of all sizes. A lot of the time it’s genetic and even quite slim people can have double chins. However, this makes them look older and heavier than they are. A sleek, contoured jaw is a sign of youth—which is why everyone is bringing in photos of Ariana Grande. If you want to take your jaw contouring to the next level, you can also add dermal fillers to the jawline once your CoolSculpting sessions are complete. After all, getting rid of extra fat and lax skin is one thing; filling in a sharp jaw with just the right product is a game changer.
Scheduling Your CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting can be performed on virtually any part of the body. Under the chin is an increasingly popular site, but you can also tackle that back fat or bra bulge, love handles, spare tire, and any other trouble area. Many patients treat multiple areas during the same appointment. CoolSculpting technology has been around for decades, with its roots in 1970s research. It is a proven, safe, and effective means of contouring and sculpting the body for those who just have little stubborn areas that won’t budge.
