Can a double chin be fixed without going under the knife? We put a laser treatment to the test which claims to fix a double chin with husband and wife Alana and Chris, who both unhappy with their under-neck bulge.
Nurse Jaime, a celebrity skincare expert, explains the treatment lasts for 25 minutes and involves a series of heated lasers. She says the results of the treatment can take 6 to 12 weeks to see, with many patients seeing results after 2 weeks.
The couple and nurse Jamie join the show 5 to 6 weeks after the treatment, and both Alana and Chris say they are very happy with results. Alana says every week that passes, she feels it looks better.
Nurse Jaime says the light-based treatment "bypasses the skin [and] destroy the fat." She also says it is a permanent reduction and costs $600 to $700 per treatment.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon says he prefers liposuction to reduce fat in this area and feels freezing or melting fat can be too unpredictable.
