Facial flaccidity is one of the signs of the passage of time. It is normal for the skin to lose firmness and become thinner, at the same time as the jaw arch fades,. There is a specific protocol followed by experts in aesthetic medicine that allows to recover this facial oval and eliminate the double chin. It is a treatment that combines three techniques, but depends on each case: Thermage radiofrequency, bidirectional tensor strands and CoolMini, a non-invasive technology based on cold. In this way surgery is not necessary and it is possible to tighten the skin, eliminating the double chin.

Phases to eliminate the double chin and recover the facial oval

The anti-facial flakiness protocol manages to recover the firmness of the skin with definite contours in the mandible and under the chin. The phases normally comprise:

1. Radiofrequency with Thermage, to reaffirm three-dimensional. The most advanced machine is used in radiofrequency. It is the one that warms up and reaches deeper layers of the skin (4 - 8 mm), tensing the collagen and stimulating growth again. It totally controls the heat and the depth, reason why it does not burn the skin nor it generates other adverse effects.

2. Silhouette yarns soft, to tighten the skin unidirectionally. Shilouette threads help to redefine the face and recover lost volume. These are resorbable threads of plolactic acid with bidirectional cones. Its actions are a lifting effect (discreet and immediate) and a regenerative effect (that treats the flaccidity of the neck). In this way, the profile returns to the face progressively and naturally.

3. CoolMini, to reduce localized fat. It is a very small applicator that adapts to areas of the chin where fat accumulates. Uses a process based on applying controlled cold for a sustained period of time. This will achieve a gradual reduction and death of the fat cells, without damaging the skin or surrounding tissues. This reduces the localized fat.

What is the treatment to recover the facial oval

The treatment lasts between one and three hours and, after it, patients can live normal lives.

The combination of the radiofrequency with the tensioning threads and the cold technology allow to treat the flaccidity and to recover the facial oval. In fact, each separate technique is effective but, all three of them together, it achieves an even better result, with a synergistic effect between them.
