A game changer for double chin fat reduction - NYC plastic surgeons like Dr. Levine are making use of the latest innovation by the BTL team, the new EMFACE treatment submental applicator. The latest version works in synergy with the traditional cheek applicators, in order to provide optimal lower face rejuvenation.
A non-surgical alternative to neck liposuction for some patients, this applicator uses synchronized radio frequency (RF) to reduce fat, tighten skin and helps to tone the muscles in the submental region, otherwise known as the "double chin area." This lets patients effectively enhance those facial contours, without the need for surgery, or even unwanted needles!
SculpSure non-surgical body contouring helps you achieve a slimmer appearance naturally. Our patients have been using this quick and effective treatment to reduce fat in problem areas such as the belly, love handles, back, thighs and now – the double chin (submental)!
In late September, SculpSure was cleared by the FDA to treat submental fat and we’re proud to be the first office to carry this treatment in New York City.
Below are a few FAQ’s to get you acquainted with the treatment and photos to demonstrate results you may expect from it.
Is SculpSure right for me?
SculpSure is ideal for patients with stubborn areas of fat that seem resistant to diet and exercise. For body contouring, an ideal patient should have a BMI of 30 or below. For submental treatment, a BMI of 43 or below is ideal.
How many treatments will I need?
The amount of treatments depends on the amount of fat in an area and desired results. We construct an individualized treatment plan for each patient’s unique goals.
What should I expect during treatment?
Unlike other fat reduction treatments, SculpSure is well-received by patients. As the treatment utilizes heat to destroy the fat cells (and only the fat cells), patients sometimes experience a tingling sensation intermittently throughout the treatment. Contact Cooling™ stays on throughout the treatment, which keeps the skin comfortable.
When can I resume normal activities?
One of our favorite things about SculpSure is that it requires no downtime. We know our patients want to get back to their normal routine as soon as possible and this non-invasive lipolysis treatment allows them to do just that!
When will I see results?
Most patients start seeing results as early as 6 weeks. SculpSure is a natural fat reduction treatment that permanently destroys the fat cells, but it is the body that flushes them out. The latter is a process that highly depends on the individual.
