Double Chin

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 habits 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.

Treatment Options

Face Contouring with DiamondPolar™

A DiamondPolar™ applicator works to further diminish lines and wrinkles through the use of Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields, which produce uniform heat under the skin’s surface. This process helps to naturally increase collagen and elastin fibers, resulting in smoother, firmer skin that looks noticeably more youthful.

DiamondPolar™ is a good option for people who don’t want anything invasive, or to have any injectables. Also, you can focus treatment on the areas of the face where it is needed.

RF Sublime™ Skin Firming & Tightening

Sublime™ is an effective and non-invasive way to promote elasticity and create more naturally firm skin. This procedure helps to tighten lax skin and create a more contoured appearance. It is perfect for those who suffer from deep wrinkles, folds, droopy eyelids, jowls, and any general loose skin on the face and neck. Sublime treatments also promote the production of collagen.

The goal of Sublime™ is not to resurface but to tighten and contour the skin. Working from the inside out, Sublime™ combines the technologies of bi-polar radio frequency (RF) energy and deep infrared heat to permeate through to the dermal layers of skin, in order to create new collagen and elastin. As we age, skin naturally becomes lax and starts to droop, resulting in wrinkles and sagging skin. Although this is a fact of life, more than 30 million women are concerned about developing a double chin, sagging jawline, and sagging skin on the neck also known as “turkey neck”.

Sublime™ is suitable for individuals with: deep wrinkles, folds, drooping eyelids, baby fat, nasolabial folds, chins, and generally loose skin on the face and neck.
