Aqualyx and HIFU Treatments
These are two of the most common treatments for a double chin.
Aqualyx, was developed for the reduction of localised fat that sits under the skin and is a gel-based aqueous solution. This dissolves the fat cells and is completely biodegradable. Aqualyx Aqualyx® works by causing the dissolution of fat cells. The body then expels the released fatty acids naturally.
A high intensity focused ultrasound facial (HIFU) promises a non-invasive way to tighten the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Also known as the ‘lunchtime facelift,’ the procedure itself is very quick, targeting specific areas of the face and neck that require some rejuvenation.
Aqualyx Vs HIFU
Aqualyx is used to destroy fat cells in the area of treatment. The HIFU treatment is used to tighten and lift the chin and jawline. We find that the HIFU treatment is most effective for tightening and sculpting the jawline and chi.
The HIFU Treatment works to tighten the jawline and chin, while also killing off some stubborn fat cells. This helps not only destroy fat cells but also tighten the jawline as they would in a double chin surgery treatment.
Every client is different and therefore each client reacts to a treatment differently. We would recommend reading reviews of clinics who offer this treatment and check before and after photos. You can read out top tips for finding a good Aesthetic Clinic – click here.
