Read about how we use non-invasive technology to help in double chin reduction

Discontent with your submental fullness? You’re not the only one. It is an aesthetic condition caused by the accumulation of subcutaneous fat under the chin and is also commonly referred to as the ‘double chin.’

Submental fat, or double chin, is caused by weight gain, genetic obesity, and the ageing process. However, it’s not a condition that has no solution. There are a few facial exercises and techniques you can try at home to improve the look of your sagging skin and a double chin and provide a lifting effect. These include:

  • Chin exercises like straight jaw jut 
  • Ball exercises
  • Pucker up and tongue stretch 
  • Jaw stretch and bottom jaw stretch 



You can also decrease excess fat under your double chin with a strict diet (including antioxidant-rich green tea) and following specific meal plans. For a longer-term fat elimination solution, however, at-home remedies might not be the most effective. Therefore, many people are choosing non-invasive methods to banish their double chins. 

Here are some of the most innovative non-invasive technologies that can help reduce your submental fat:

1. InMode


In comparison to other radiofrequency devices in the market, InMode delivers effective and safe treatments. An optimal temperature of 40-42 degrees Celsius has to be achieved for a sustained period of time to enable collagen stimulation in the dermis. 


How Radiofrequency Works

As the basis of radiofrequency delivers energy that heats the most superficial layer of the skin, the risk of burning the skin before an ideal temperature is achieved (in the dermis) is possible in poorly designed machines. 




Radiofrequency devices come with a real-time temperature sensor that enables an auto-feedback mechanism, which cuts off energy supply in areas that have achieved the pre-set cut-off temperature to avoid overheating the dermis. 

A timer will only kick-start upon the achievement and sustenance of the treatment temperature. This step ensures enough time to bulk heat the deeper layers of the skin for maximal effects.  



MiniFX targets double chin fat and tightens the skin effectively. One can also combine it with skin tightening energy devices such as Forma and Ultraformer 3. It can also improve skin laxity caused due to ageing. 

It is a non-invasive treatment that delivers radiofrequency energy, improving blood circulation and dispersing heat to the deep tissues. It can focus energy to target fat specifically while simultaneously smoothing and tightening the skin. BodyFx, on the other hand, works gradually to reduce fat and tighten skin.


How MiniFX Works


The MiniFX device works on fat crushing, skin tightening, and contouring the neck and jawline area for a slim face. This treatment targets problematic fatty tissues for contouring and targets small areas like the double chin, neck, arms, and knees. 

Here are its benefits:

  • Radiofrequency causes precise and optimal heating of the skin for reduction, contraction, and contouring.
  • Negative Pressure Massage applies vacuum pressure in a gentle manner, which enables comprehensive treatment depth.
  • Clinical studies with histologies indicate volume reduction plus contraction.


On the other hand, Forma provides a visible lift to saggy and droopy skin, instantly firms the skin, and offers visibly improved elasticity. Skin becomes tighter, with a boost in collagen and elastin production, and benefits from reduced fine lines and wrinkles. Besides, it’s also FDA-approved. This procedure is painless, with zero downtime. 


How Forma Works

Forma is a face and skin tightening and firming procedure that uses heat and radio frequency to boost collagen in your face, which leads to lifted, tighter and contoured skin. A cosmetic gel and heated wand is passed over the skin in circular motions, which gives the sensation of your face being ironed. The controlled heating of the skin tissues triggers the brain to release a healing response, which increases collagen production and tightens the elastin fibres.



After your treatment, your skin is brighter and looks lifted, with a defined jawline. You get the desired results with no dermal fillers! 


2. CoolTech (for Fat Freezing) 


CoolTech is a permanent and non-invasive fat-freezing procedure for the body. This technology uses cryolipolysis - a process in which fat cells are frozen via a controlled cooling system. Upon being exposed to precise cooling, fat cells start a natural removal process called apoptosis. Their gradual elimination takes place through the normal metabolic process. 

Adipocytes are incredibly receptive to cold in comparison to other tissues such as muscles, nerves, and skin. Thus, a single treatment leads to a drastic reduction in fat cells. This procedure is also painless, with no downtime, which makes it a gentle form of therapy. If you want to lose fat in a particular area, this is suitable for you - as it effectively targets stubborn areas. 




Studies also prove that about 25%-40% of fat cells undergo apoptosis with each treatment. However, not all fat freezing devices are as effective. Based on more than 1,000,000 CoolTech treatments, the customer satisfaction rate is over 90%. Other reputable medical-grade fat freezing devices such as Coolsculpt and Clatuu also offer non-invasive fat reduction solutions.

Double Chin Reduction at Nuffield Wellness

Aesthetic technology has enabled the removal of fat from your chin and neck areas safely and efficiently, with hardly any side effects. Nuffield Wellness provides a selection of treatments for double chin reduction. These are non-invasive and don't involve any surgery, or injections containing deoxycholic acid for reducing fatty tissue. 

Akin to other fat reduction procedures, double chin reduction is not a weight loss procedure. A healthy lifestyle coupled with a good diet and adequate exercise is necessary to lose weight. Individuals who have already undergone non-invasive double chin reduction procedures need to incorporate healthy living habits into their daily lives to prevent new fat cells from regenerating.
