What Causes A Double Chin?

A Double Chin, also known as submental fat, is a common condition that occurs when a layer of fat forms below your Chin and on your Neck.

This is not necessarily due to being generally overweight.  Sometimes pockets of fat build up and can be difficult to remove even with exercise and diet.

Genetics or looser skin resulting from aging may also cause a Double Chin.

Jowls may also be described by some as a Double Chin.   Visit  Jowls  for more information about treatments.

Treatments For Double Chin

Fat Dissolving

Fat Dissolving by injections is a treatment that helps to dissolve stubborn fat deposits simply and without surgery.

Many people suffer from stubborn areas of fat, which are resistant to diet and regular exercise.   These pockets of fat can be treated with injections of lipolytic products such as Aqualyx or Adipo Forte.

For small areas of fat, such as the jowls and chin, just two to three treatments of Aqualyx can dramatically reduce fat deposits to give a more youthful and defined facial contour.

Dermal Fillers in the jawline and even cheeks, are also excellent to lift the Jowls, which are more due to volume loss and loose sagging skin, as opposed to fat.

To reduce your double chin and improve the shape of your jawline, you are likely to need a combination of  Fat Dissolving with Aqualyx, plus  Dermal Fillers or  HIFU.
