As you age, or as your weight fluctuates, the skin and fat under your chin change as well. If you don’t like your profile, consider chin contouring with Dr. Santiago M. Leyte-Vidal at Cocoa Beach Internal Medicine, located in Cocoa Beach, Florida. Dr. Leyte-Vidal offers non-invasive chin contouring using SculpSure® laser treatment.

If you’re seeking a more sculpted look on your chin and neck, try submental SculpSure treatment. SculpSure is a popular non-invasive laser treatment that Dr. Leyte-Vidal uses to eliminate fat cells in the body.
In 2017, the FDA cleared SculpSure for use under the chin. Dr. Leyte-Vidal loves using SculpSure submental laser treatments for chin contouring because it:
To contour your chin with SculpSure, Dr. Leyte-Vidal uses a specially designed submental SculpSure applicator. It delivers laser energy at a lower intensity wavelength than the applicator for other body parts.
To keep you comfortable during your session, the SculpSure applicator also delivers Advanced Contact Cooling™.
SculpSure for chin contouring works by heating and compromising fat cells with laser heat energy. Once they’re damaged, the body naturally processes the fat cells and dispels them via the lymphatic system. Once the fat cells are gone, they won’t return.
All in all, this takes about six weeks. Each session takes about 25 minutes, and the number of sessions required within those six weeks depends on your body and your desired results.
To learn if chin contouring is the right fit for you, you should talk to Dr. Leyte-Vidal in person. Chin contouring is a great way to eliminate stubborn fat that you can’t get rid of, even with diet and exercise. If your BMI is steady at 43 or under, chin contouring may also work for you.
Note that, though you can tighten your chin skin using SculpSure, that’s not its primary intended purpose. If you’re interested in removing loose skin from your submental area, a different treatment may work better for you.
