Double Chin Reduction - VIEW BEFORE & AFTER IMAGES
Prior to your first treatment, you will be required to complete a medical questionnaire and consent form - this is to ensure that you have no contraindications to the procedure. We want our clients to have realistic expectations regarding what can be achieved in the way of results and understand how diet and exercise will effect these.
You will be weighed before every treatment and the results will be recorded.
Weight gain may affect the results of your course.
You will have 3 photographs taken before you commence your course and this will be repeated before and after every treatment. Your photographs will remain confidential. No full face photographs will ever be used unless agreed by you in writing.
How Strawberry Double Chin Reduction works:
When the lasers are placed on the skin, it penetrates just deep enough to reach the layers of fat (9-13mm). When the fat cells absorb the energy from the lasers, a rapid chain of events take place. Firstly, pores form on the surface of the cells causing them to spill out their contents of water, Glycerol and free fatty acids. This contents moves into the interstitial space beneath the fatty layer in the skin which enables the cells to become malleable, achieving adipocyte cell reduction. This disruption does not affect the neighbouring structures such as the blood vessels and nerves. The lymphatic system removes the contents via the Liver and the Kidneys where it is processed in the same way as fatty foods - any content that remains in the body is naturally passed out in the urine.

Frequently Asked Questions & Answers
Are there any reasons I cannot have the treatment?
- Aged under 18
- Pregnant or breast feeding
- Have cancer
- Therapists cannot treat anyone with a previous history of cancer (if a Doctor is treating you, he will make this judgement after a minimum of 1 year in remission)
- Have Liver or Kidney conditions
- Have a Pacemaker
- Type 1 Diabetes can only be treated by a Doctor (this is not a contraindication but most insurance policies will not cover treatment)
When will I see results?
Immediately post treatment in most cases, however some clients can swell slightly for a few hours.
How many treatments will I need?
You will need 4 treatments in total; the frequency of treatment is paramount to success. Please note you must not leave less than a 2 week gap between treatments.
Can I have more than one course?
No, this process should not be repeated as a course for 12 months. You can however have 1 maintenance treatment every 3 or 6 months.
How long will the results last?
The results are permanent provided that you maintain a sensible lifestyle, healthy eating and an exercise plan. Following this practice will ensure your inch loss results are retained. However, weight gain will result in the fat returning to the treatment area as will the body’s natural ageing process. Should this occur, maintenance treatments are advised.
What actually happens to the fat?
Following treatment the Glycerol is rapidly absorbed by the body. The water carries the free fatty acids through the lymphatic system, Liver and Kidneys which will then exit the body through your urine.
How do I get better results?
By doing 20 minutes cardio vascular exercise immediately post treatment will potentially double your results.
Does the treatment hurt?
No, there is zero pain and zero discomfort. You feel a comfortable warm feeling in the treatment area which is known to make some clients fall asleep.
How can I monitor my results?
At every session you will be weighed and photographed before your treatment and after your treatment from three angles.
