What is it?
The jowl removal treatments without surgery in case it is due to an excess of adipose tissue (mild or moderate) are radiofrequency, the usual mesotherapy and mesotherapy Dr. Cardenas method. If the adipose tissue is excessive or very voluminous and if the double chin is due to a moderate sagging of the skin, the recommended treatment is our Special Mesotherapy.
Jowl reduction or jowl removal treatments have several benefits:
- They are non-invasive treatments.
- They complement the diet, making sure that there is no excess fat in the double chin. This is a common problem since the double chin is a place of energy storage, so it is one of the last places that the body will reduce fat.
- Radiation therapy does not take long.
How and for what?
Below, we explain the main treatments for jowl reduction or elimination that we offer at Dr. Cardenas Medical and Cosmetic Center.
This treatment uses radiofrequency to heat the deep layers of the skin. This stimulates collagen and elastin, improving skin texture. In turn, it affects the fibrous tissues of the neck, which helps with cellulite. It also repairs loose skin.
Mesotherapy uses multiple injections of pharmaceutical and homeopathic medicines, plant extracts, vitamins and other ingredients into the subcutaneous fat and other parts of the body according to the desired objective. This is why we offer different types of mesotherapy, depending on your needs. The goal of the treatment is to destroy fat cells by inducing lipolysis (the breakdown and cell death among adipocytes).
The Fotona laser (Neodymium + Erbium)
It is a non-invasive technique that uses a high-intensity laser to heat the adipose tissue of the jowls and cause the death of fat cells. This treatment also stimulates collagen production, which improves the appearance of the skin and helps prevent sagging.
It is another non-invasive technique that uses a carbon dioxide laser to destroy fat cells in the jowls. Unlike the Fotona laser, the Co2 laser can also be used to improve the appearance of the skin and reduce sagging by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin.
They are a non-invasive technique that consists of the application of a mixture of enzymes that help dissolve the fat cells in the jowls This treatment is especially effective in patients with a moderate accumulation of fat in the jowls, although it may be less effective in cases of sagging or drooping skin.
Your double chin could be due to an accumulation of fat, common among overweight people, or by sagging or excess skin, common among those who have lost weight abruptly, older adults, genetics or the shape of the face. With our treatments, you will achieve a more stylized neck.
