If you suffer from a double chin, it may be the only thing you see when you look in the mirror or see a photo of yourself.
A double chin can make you look older or overweight and can be difficult, if not impossible, to treat on your own.
At Images Med Spa in Mokena, IL, we are proud to be the premier provider of CoolSculpting in Chicago, helping our clients target and eliminate unwanted fat on the belly, arms, back, legs, buttocks, and even below the chin to help them get rid of a double chin in Mokena.
What causes double chins?
To understand how to properly get rid of a double chin in Mokena, you must understand what causes excess fat on the chin and neck to appear. It may be caused by a variety of factors:
Age As we get older, our skin begins to sag as its elasticity begins to diminish. This can result in the formation of a double chin that may have not been there before.
Poor Diet & Exercise As with numerous other conditions, a double chin could be the result of poor diet and exercise habits. Eating unhealthy foods and skipping the gym can result in the accumulation of fat cells below your chin.
Genetics You may not want to hear it, but if having a double chin runs in your family, there’s a good chance you have one or will develop one one day. If you have a genetic predisposition for a double chin, it may happen no matter how healthy or fit you are.
What steps can be taken to get rid of a double chin in Mokena?
Many of our clients at Images Med Spa want to know how to get rid of their double chin in Mokena.
It’s frustrating that some of the factors that influence whether or not we develop a double chin are out of our control.
We all age, and none of us can control our genetics (yet). However, there are steps that can be taken to prevent or remove the pesky fat from developing beneath your chin.
In addition to exercising, especially utilizing jaw/chin-specific exercises, you can also try eating a better diet, free of fatty foods, lowering calorie intake, and drinking plenty of water.
For those who want to accelerate the process or want a more permanent solution, Images Med Spa offers CoolSculpting for double chins in Mokena.
Our procedure for getting rid of a double chin in Mokena
During your free consultation with the Images babes, we will make sure you are a good candidate for CoolSculpting treatments.
On the day of your appointment, your Images specialist will apply a gel pad and CoolSculpting applicator to your chin, delivering the controlled cooling directly to your double chin.
We then begin the treatment, in which you may experience some pulling and pinching during the process that most clients tolerate very well.
During the 35-minute treatment, many clients relax and listen to music, or may opt to receive another aesthetic treatment simultaneously.
After the fat is completely frozen, your specialist will gently massage and break up the frozen deep tissue and help your body begin to resorb the destroyed fat cells.
What happens after I come to Images to get rid of my double chin in Mokena?
A major advantage of choosing a nonsurgical treatment for your double chin is that there is no anesthesia or invasive methods required, meaning you can leave our office on your own and resume your regular activities.
Some clients experience redness and soreness immediately after treatment, but these are typically mild and subside within a few days.
