One of the hallmarks of a youthful face is a slim and tight jawline, but fat under the chin, medically referred to as submental fat, can accumulate either due to age, lifestyle or genetic predisposition. The result is looking older than your actual age, an appearance that you cannot easily cover with a scarf or even cleverly applied makeup. Whereas you can hide abdominal fat with loose-fitting clothes and vertical stripes, or thick thighs with slimming jeans, you have no way of hiding behind your hair when you have double chin.

Facial Exercises and Topical Creams Not Effective for Double Chin

CoolSculpting-coolminiThis cosmetic concern plagues more than 22 million Americans who have been seeking non-invasive fat reduction solutions all these years. For the longest time, the only way to really effectively treat double chin is by using very invasive methods that are performed in aesthetic laser clinic. Even with a plethora of topical creams and other products that claim to get rid of double chins, there has really been no proven effective treatment short of liposuction and surgery despite what potion peddlers and proponents of facial exercises claim.

This is because double chins are difficult to reduce by lifestyle changes alone. The best remedy is still prevention, but those who are genetically predisposed to develop it get it even when they are not generally obese. A person can be lean from the neck down, but genes can get in the way to create double chin.

There are also no spot correction exercises that one can do to target this specific problem area. If you pack on excess weight, you will have to go through an exercise regimen to reduce fat all over the body. This holds true for any area you might have difficulty losing fat in – batwings (flabby arms), muffin tops, back rolls, and jiggly thighs.

Coolsculpting Clinics Offer Non-Invasive Treatment for Submental Fat

Many medical clinic in Singapore have been addressing these problems with the use of proprietary controlled-cooling technology that specifically reduces stubborn fat in problem areas. Zeltiq Coolsculpting Singapore treatment is a safe, non-surgical procedure that has been clinically proven to selectively reduce unwanted fat using patented cooling technology, and has long been used in laser clinics in Singapore (with 93% customer satisfaction rate) in the flanks, abdomen and thighs. Recently, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) gave an expanded clearance to Coolsculpting for the treatment of smaller pockets of fat, including the chin area, using the CoolMini applicator.

By gently cooling targeted fat cells in the chin area, Coolsculpting induces a natural and controlled freezing of fat cells without harming surrounding tissue, with the treated fat cells eliminated naturally. This procedure has become quite popular in aesthetic clinics in Singapore because unlike invasive methods of fat elimination, Coolsculpting has zero risks and downtime that are usually associated with surgery. Even better, with judicious diet and exercise, the reduced fat is usually gone for good.
