The chin in particular is one of the most defining features that affect the overall aesthetic balance of your face. A strong well-defined chin and sharp jaw line convey a look of youthfulness and good health.
As we age, the subcutaneous fat around the neck and chin begins to migrate south and starts to sag. This gives the appearance of what is commonly referred to as the “double chin.” While this “turkey neck” appearance is more common in elderly and overweight individuals, younger people of average weight can be affected too. Bone structure and the amount of loose skin one has can all play a role in the aesthetic contour of an individual’s chin and jawline.
Many patients can reduce the appearance of a double chin through diet and exercise, but for others who are genetically prone to store fatty tissue in this region, diet and exercise are not likely to help.
Profound RF at Tysons Corner with Dr. Manrique
Profound radiofrequency is a breakthrough radiofrequency device that is clinically proven to create up to 5x more elastin, 2x more collagen, and increased hyaluronic acid. Profound is the first and only radiofrequency microneedling device with FDA clearance for face and body.
A single Profound treatment is clinically proven to stimulate your body’s own wound-healing response to reduce the signs of aging and unwanted fat without the use of chemicals or surgery. Profound RF mkcroneedling delivers heat at the fat level treating the double chin and tightening the skin. It differs from other devices as it provides real-time, temperature-controlled radiofrequency micro needling to deliver precise and controlled heat and tightening to the tissues of the skin.
Why Profound RF? ” I don’t feel comfortable removing the fat without tightening the skin. Depending on the age and quality of the skin of the patient, I have always a very important question: How does the skin will look after losing the fat underneath since it has been its support for a long time.” Dr. M.
