Double Chin

Double Chin
A double chin is caused by weight gain or the loss of elastin and collagen in the skin, creating more sagging and lax skin as we age.

Treatments for Double Chin

A double chin can impede confidence and can also change the appearance of facial structure, creating a less defined chin and perhaps jaw.

A double chin can be treated with fat reduction, increased elastin and collagen production and skin tightening to restore the structure in the skin to reduce sagging.

Treatments using radiofrequency like MinieCosmo, empty fat cells and tighten the skin to reduce the appearance of a double chin.

For more stubborn excess fat, Aqualyx, fat dissolving injections destroy the fat cells in the target area such as the chin.

Treatments should be combined with a healthy lifestyle like a balanced diet and exercise to optimise and maintain results.

SYMPTOMS of Double Chin

Appears as a skin fold, altered profile, and or a roll of fat and reduces the appearance of a defined jaw line.

Prevention of Double Chin
