Submental fat, more commonly known as a “double chin,” is a common condition that affects men and women of all ages and sizes. A double chin occurs when a layer of excess fat forms below the chin and jawline, and while this accumulation of fat is often associated with weight gain, you don’t have to be overweight to have one. Those who are prone to loose, saggy skin are the most prone to having a double chin, which is often a result of genetics or age.
A double chin is one of the most stubborn areas of the body and is known for being resistant, if not impossible, to target with exercises the way the rest of the body is. Chin exercises and over-the-counter products may claim to target a double chin, however, there is no scientific evidence that these methods are effective in reducing submental fat. Thanks to advancements in the medical aesthetics industry, there are other options to get rid of your double chin that are proven to be effective. If you are at a stable, healthy weight and still suffer from submental fat, then one of our aesthetic treatments to get rid of your double chin may be right for you.
