Double Chin Removal in Singapore | What are the Causes & Treatment

Double chin is caused by an extra layer of fat beneath the chin. When the fat accumulates enough, a crease forms in the skin giving one the appearance of a second chin - which is why it is also known as a double chin. While the presence of a double chin is not indicative of any health concerns, it can affect a person's self-confidence and perception of body image. 

What are the causes of Double Chin? 

There are several factors that can cause double chin, so knowing the causes can help you find a suitable double chin removal treatment.

  • Age - As we age, our skin loses its elasticity which leads to the appearance of extra or saggy skin that contributed to double chin.
  • Diet & Weight - Unhealthy lifestyle habits can also cause the appearance of saggy skin which can contribute to double chin.
  • Genetics - Unfortunately, genetics plays 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 the neck and chin, and overtime the surrounding skin loses its elasticity when muscles are not used.


Double Chin Removal in Singapore | Our Non-Invasive Treatment Methods

HIFU Treatment | High Intensity Focused Ultrasound

High intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is a revolutionary treatment, allowing patients to achieve double chin removal 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, fibres thicken, resulting in long-term tightening and lifting. HIFU treatment is also effective for age prevention. As we age, collagen production slows, and skin elastic fibres become less dense. HIFU treatment helps to push up collagen production and by stimulating dermal collagen production, you can gain a more youthful appearance.

Ultherapy HIFU Treatment 

Ultherapy is one of the most effective treatments for lifting the chin. This procedure uses a device to deliver safe levels of ultrasound energy into the SMAS (Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System) layer of the skin.

SMAS is 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. Therefore, improving the appearance of sagging skin.


Chin Fillers Augmentation

This is also another treatment that reduces visible signs of aging caused by volume loss. As we age, another prominent area for skin aging is the chin and jaw area. Saggy skin in the under chin area contributes to the appearance of double chin. This is the result of loose skin hanging from the chin or neck.  As fillers contain an ingredient called Hyaluronic Acid, by applying the fillers to the chin or jaw area, they can add volume to the facial tissues. This is done by stimulating collagen production and delivering moisture to the skin, making the face plump.

Jawline Anti Aging Injection | Botulinum Toxin Injection

Botulinum toxin, also known as Botox, helps reduce the muscle bulk located in the jaw area. By relaxing the jaw muscles, it can give the lower part of the face more definition. Apart from the jaw, injecting the neck's surrounding muscles can cause the muscles to tighten which helps to lift the neck and narrow the lower face.

Cryolipolysis | Fat Freezing | CoolSculpting

Also known as fat freezing, the treatment reduces 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 | WarmSculpting | SculpSure  

Warm sculpting with SculpSure is a non-invasive treatment that delivers heating energy that targets stubborn fats under the chin. It eliminates fat cells under the chin. The heat generated during the treatment can also stimulate growth of new collagen formation which improves skin tone and tightening of the under the chin.

As there are multiple FDA-approved modalities for double chin treatment, it is important to consult your doctor. During the consultation, you will go through a detailed assessment to ascertain a suitable treatment plan.
