At Harley Ultrasound, we understand that the build-up of fat in the chin area can often feel out of our control, and leave us feeling self-conscious. In most cases, it is impractical to try and get rid of fat in the chin area through diet and exercise. We are proud to say that we have not one, but two solutions to unwanted chin fat. Find out more about them below.
Our 360 Chin Cryolipolysis uses cold temperatures to freeze fat cells. It is based on the same principles as our Cryolipolysis procedure. For this treatment, we use a special applicator that is designed to comfortably fit the contours of the chin.
We also have an RF Chin Reduction treatment. In contrast to the 360 Chin Cryolipolysis treatment, this uses warmer temperatures of around 40 degrees to ‘melt’ the fat. Fat cells have a weak structure, and the heat causes the solid fat to transform into liquid fat.
How does it work?
The 360 Chin Cryolipolysis treatment works by subjecting fat cells to temperatures below -1 degree Celsius. It is scientifically proven that fat cells cannot survive such temperatures, as they crystallise. Surrounding skin cells are not affected, meaning this treatment solely targets fat cells. During 360 Chin Cryolipolysis, the area is frozen to approximately -5 degrees Celsius. The crystallised fat cells are removed from the body in the days following the treatment, through the lymphatic system. The treatment is called ‘360 Chin Cryolipolysis’ because we use a half-dome shaped applicator that targets fat cells at all angles and fits the shape of the chin without causing discomfort. Therefore, our clients can see beneficial results from only one 360 Chin Cryolipolysis treatment.
Our RF Chin Reduction treatment involves applying radio frequencies to the chin area. In response to this, the skin acts as a resistor and creates thermal energy. This breaks down the weakly structured fat cells into liquid fat, which can then be naturally removed from the body through the lymphatic system. Ideally, the skin should reach temperatures of roughly 40 degrees Celsius. Our therapists will monitor this throughout to ensure the skin does not get too hot.

Results and Aftercare
For the best results, our therapists at Harley Ultrasound suggest that you undergo both of these treatments. This will lead to greater fat loss and help to tone the area.
In regards to our RF Chin Reduction treatment, you can see results within a few days after the treatment. This is one of the best treatments if you are looking for quick fat loss results. The area may feel tender immediately after the treatment. Therefore it is important that you look after your skin, taking steps such as wearing suncream and avoiding hot environments that may irritate the area.
You will see results from the 360 Chin Cryolipolysis treatment within 4 to 12 weeks after the treatment. Most of our clients see significant results from only one treatment.
Results from both treatments are potentially long-lasting.
