Non-surgical Double Chin Reduction
A double chin, or accumulated fatty tissue in the submental area, might pose a problem not only to people who are overweight but also to those who are genetically predisposed to store more fat under the chin, regardless of their weight.
A double chin becomes more noticeable as we age. It more commonly affects women because they are predisposed to have more fatty tissue than men. Accumulation of adipose tissue around the chin and localized fatty tissue in the submental area occurs due to the loss of collagen and elastin, which support the skin and enable it to be tight and firm, as well as the loss of skin volume caused by the atrophy of its supporting structures.
The face looks overweight and sad, facial contours are less defined, causing the patient to look older than their actual age.
Alma laser, which integrates both RF and US technologies, enables two simultaneous processes: ultrasound helps destroy the localized fat tissue, while radiofrequency tightens the skin. The double chin is gradually reduced and the lower jaw contours are redefined.
The advantages of non-surgical submental area treatment
- Non-invasive treatment
- No downtime

Following a detailed examination, a doctor determines the number of treatments needed to address the aesthetic problem of each patient, depending on the severity of the issue, as well as the patient’s general condition. Prior to the intervention or treatment, a patient is required to fill out a lifestyle questionnaire, giving out the necessary information concerning their routines and lifestyle. The information is then used to predict treatment success and identify possible contraindications.
- Systemic diseases
- Local skin inflammation
- Malignant diseases
- Vascular diseases
- Blood vessel thrombosis
- Metal implants in the affected area
During the examination, the patient will be advised on incorporating certain dietary rules and lifestyle habits that greatly contribute to the success of the procedure.
