Double Chin – Removal, Causes & Treatment 

What causes Double Chin?

A double chin is caused by an extra layer of fat that develops beneath the chin.

A few different factors combine in the body to create a double chin. Understanding these factors may help with understanding ways to get rid of the double chin itself.

  • Age – As we age, our skin starts to lose its elasticity which leads to the appearance of extra or saggy skin that contributed to double chin
  • Diet & Weight - Unhealthy lifestyle habit can also cause the appearance of saggy skin which can contribute to double chin. 
  • Genetics - Unfortunately, genetics play a large part in the chin’s structural formation, as the tendency to accumulate and hold submental fat is determined by your gene pool.
  • Posture – Poor posture can weaken the muscles of neck and chin, overtime the surrounding skin loses its elasticity when muscles are not used.

High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a revolutionary treatment, allowing patients to acquire a face lift without surgery. HIFU uses precise beams of ultrasound energy to tighten the skin’s connective tissues, thus lifting the skin. By heating up and stimulating existing collagen fibres, the fibres thicken, resulting in a long-term tightening and lifting effect. HIFU treatment is also effective for age prevention. As we age, our collagen production begins to slow, and the skin’s elastic fibres become less dense. HIFU treatment helps to push up your collagen production and by stimulating dermal collagen production, you can gain a more youthful appearance.

However, the earlier generation machines gave an extremely painful experience. Ensoul Q+ new HIFU technology solves this problem by using gold ceramic oscillator at 1,000 Hz, to deliver its Ultrasound energy via fractionated technology without causing pain.

Chin Filler Augmentation is also another treatment that can reduce visible signs of aging that are caused by volume loss. As we age, another prominent area for skin aging is the chin and jaw area. Saggy skin on the under chin area can contribute to a double chin look or loose hanging chin or neck skin.  As fillers contains an ingredient called Hyaluronic Acid, by apply the fillers on the chin or jaw area, it can add volume to the facial tissues by stimulating collagen production and help to deliver moisture to the skin, making the face plump.

Ultherapy / Ulthera is one of the effective treatments for lifting the chin. This procedure uses a device to deliver safe levels of ultrasound energy into the deep layers of the skin (also known as the SMAS - Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System) where new cells can replace old skin cells without disrupting the skin surface. This triggers the body’s natural healing process to use its own collagen to rebuild the skin. Ulthera also delivers heat to the tissues and muscle leading to skin tightening and lifting, thus improving the appearance of sagging skin. 

Jawline Anti Aging Injection helps with reducing the muscle bulk located in the jaw area. By relaxing the muscles in the jaw, it can give the lower part of the face more definition. Apart from the jaw, injecting the surrounding of the neck can cause the muscles to tighten which helps to lift the neck and narrows the lower face.

Fat-Freezing (Cryolipolysis) can also help to reduce the overall appearance of double chin. This treatment uses extremely cold temperatures to trigger the natural process of fat cell death. The fat cells are then eliminated naturally through the lymphatic system.

Laser Thermolysis is a non invasive treatment that delivers heating energy which targets stubborn fats under chin. It not only eliminate fat cells under chin, the heat generated during the treatment can also help to stimulate new collagen formation, resulting in improved skin tone and skin tightening of the. under chin area. 

As there are multiple FDA-approved modalities for double chin treatment, it is important to consult your doctor for a detailed assessment to see which treatment is suitable for you.
