Double chin or ‘Submental fat’ is prevalent. People with a double chin have an excess layer of fatty tissue under their lower jaw and this can affect individuals of all ages, genders and even BMI – You don't have to be overweight to get a double chin.
If you are suffering from double chin issues and looking for a permanent way to get rid of them, we offer a variety of treatment options to tackle that:
There are many factors that may cause double chin to form. The most common factor is weight gain which increases fat accumulation under the chin too.
Apart from that, double chin can be due to other factors such as ageing, prolonged sun exposure, lifestyle and diet, genetics or facial anatomy can all lead to double chin formation.
Ageing is the number 1 cause of double chin. As you age, your metabolism slows down and your skin loses collagen at the rate of 1-2% every year.
This will result in the accumulation of double chin fat and the development of sagging loose skin around your neck and under-chin, causing prominent double chin.
Another common cause of double chin is genetic. Asians tend to have smaller or receded chin, which makes double chin more obvious when there is accumulation of submental fat.
Individuals with a family history of skin with double chins are more likely to develop one too.
Though weight gain is not always the cause of double chin, but a high-calorie diet and unhealthful fats can lead to an increased accumulation of facial fat, causing double chin.
Lifestyle habits that involves prolonged sun exposure such as sun tanning will increase sun damage on skin, leading to collagen loss and loose skin on under-chin and neck.
To fully reduce and maintain permanent results, keeping check of your lifestyle and diet plays a part! Lifestyle changes such as using sun protection helps to prevent UV damages, slowing down collagen loss in skin, and keeping a healthy diet can help in getting rid and preventing double chin from forming.
