Having a double chin can be troublesome, especially when no diet or exercise can reduce it. One in eight people generally have this problem. We typically treat double chins with Tumescent Liposuction but for patients who are looking for an alternative, EMFACE® is a great option! 


EMFACE® has been used to tighten the skin on your face. However, until recently, patients only had access to the forehead and cheek applicator. But now, a new tool has been introduced: the EMFACE® submentum applicator to help patients reduce submental fat and achieve a beautiful and contoured chin.

How Does the Submentum Applicator Work?

Like the other applicators in the EMFACE® line, the submentum applicator uses a patented mix of HIFES™ and RF technology. Together, these technologies can reduce chin fat, tighten the skin, and tone the muscles in the submental area. Your chin and jawline should look well-defined and elegant, improving your self-confidence. 

The procedure’s radiofrequency (RF) technology gently heats your skin to increase the dermal collagen content and can potentially reduce fat. On the other hand, the patented HIFES™ technology stimulates the facial muscles in a similar manner to an exercise session. This process helps tone the under-chin area, making it look much slimmer.

The submentum applicator can be used alone on the chin to help sculpt the area, or it may be used together with the other applicators to give you a more complete effect that can help you look younger than you have in years.

Benefits of the EMFACE® Submentum Applicator 

Here are the advantages you can enjoy by using the new EMFACE® submentum applicator: 

1. No Surgical Involvement

While some surgical procedures to reduce double chins have proven highly effective, these procedures are not suitable for everyone. If you do not like experiencing discomfort, then the EMFACE® submentum applicator can be a great choice for you. This procedure is relatively comfortable since it uses no needles or surgical incisions. 

2. Natural Results

The EMFACE® submentum applicator gets its results by stimulating your tissues into doing their own job. Its goal is not to change your natural features but to improve your existing ones. Think of it as a series of targeted exercises at the gym, where you obtain natural results using muscle stimulation and fat burn.

3. Minimal Side Effects and Quick Recovery

Perhaps one of the most incredible benefits of the EMFACE® submentum applicator is that it brings no side effects or downtime. The potential for bruising is low; in fact, you might only notice some redness in the area, which should fade shortly. Patients are able to return to their daily routine immediately after the procedure.

4. Quick Treatment Sessions

Time is precious for everyone, and you shouldn’t have to take the day off just to get treatment. This makes the EMFACE® submentum applicator a convenient choice, as the procedure only lasts about 30 minutes. It is recommended to do 4 sessions spaced one week apart.  Many patients have their procedure during their lunch break and still have some time for a snack afterward.

5. Versatile Treatment

The new EMFACE® tool not only helps reduce submental fat, but it can also help tighten the skin in the target area. This is all thanks to the radiofrequency used in the applicator, which triggers the production of collagen and elastin. This helps reduce wrinkles and jowls in the area.
