Double chins affect many people and can appear at any age. This small fatty mass can affect both men and women and cause some hang-ups.
There are some different methods that will get rid of your double chin.
Double chin: what is it?
A double chin is a mass of subcutaneous fat that forms under the jaw. The combination of fine skin and gravity means that it ends up sagging more and more until the face loses its tautness. This condition eventually gets worse with age and weight gain if not treated.
The double chin has a superficial layer of fat but also a layer firmly positioned behind the platysma muscle. Be that as it may, it gives the impression of an aged, tired face and can be difficult to treat in a natural way.
A double chin can be caused by several factors:
Your double chin may be genetic in origin and could be passed down to you from other family members. This is the case when you are not overweight but still notice the appearance of a fatty mass under your jaw. The appearance of a double chin is then inevitable. Fortunately, it is still possible to correct this genetic inconvenience.
The most common cause of double chin is weight loss. The first thing you notice when you lose weight is a thinning of your face. Nevertheless, your double chin can still be there even after a diet. In that instance only cosmetic surgery can help you to get rid of it.
Ageing is also one of the causes of a double chin. With time and weight variations, the skin loses its elasticity. Neck skin is particularly sensitive to sagging. The fatty mass in your neck therefore becomes heavier and increases the size of your double chin.
Double chin: How can you get rid of it?
Liposuction removes a double or even a triple chin all at once. If the amount of fat is minimal, a gentle liposuction method is better suited to refine the delicate area of the lower face.
There are also medical alternatives available to you to treat a double chin and get rid of it permanently.
Coolsculpting works as well as surgery. The doctor may also offer the Accent Prime method, which combines ultrasound and radio frequency or the ONDA Coolwaves system which emits microwaves. These last two techniques are well suited for people with very little fat and slightly sagging skin.
Accent Prime and ONDA Coolwaves can be performed in a stand alone session or in addition to a coolsculpting session.
