Treating A Double Chin – All You Need To Know

Double Chin

What is a double chin?

Contrary to belief, double chins do not only appear due to weight gain. Excess fatty tissues can also cause deposits under the chin and neck, usually passed down through genetics. Age can also play an essential factor in the appearance of double chins because as your body ages, it loses its natural elasticity and can begin to sag. Another interesting cause of double chins is posture. Poor posture can weaken the jaw and neck muscles, resulting in a double chin as the skin can lose elasticity when the muscles aren’t used often.

How can I get rid of my double chin naturally?

It may surprise you to learn that there are numerous ways to help reduce your double chin. The most common option is weight loss through healthy eating habits and regular exercise. The excess fatty tissue under your jaw will also start to shed away and reduce as you lose weight.

Another way to help reduce your double chin is by doing regular neck and jaw exercises. These will help tighten the jaw muscles and, in turn, will reveal a tighter jawline. Chin exercises include; tilting your head to whistle at the ceiling, chewing gum and “kissing the sky”. This guide from Healthline has a fantastic article to walk you through different types of easy facial exercises.

There are also various massages you can do to help break down and drain the extra fatty tissue. The most popular massage is the use of a Gua Sha, a technique that originated in ancient China. It requires an inexpensive Gua Sha tool. It may also benefit you to use a roller after your Gua Sha to help tighten pores and stimulate collagen production for different firmness results.

Additionally, you may also prefer to try products that have skin firming ingredients in them that can help tighten the neck and jawline.

What treatments can get rid of my double chin?


There are also different professional treatments you can try, the first of which is Lipolysis. Lipolysis is a technique that uses a laser to break apart the fat cells, reducing the size of the double chin. This treatment also has the benefits of revealing smoother and tighter skin.


Next is CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting is similar to Lipolysis because it targets fat cells and destroys fatty deposits. Achieved by a targeted freezing process and offers the ability to re-sculpt the chin.


Mesotherapy is another option that is mildly invasive as it uses injections. The main ingredients are naturally occurring and include; Phosphatidylcholine, multivitamins and saline. These will at first be absorbed by the fat cells and then harden. After which, the cells will begin to break down, dissolve and then exit the body naturally.

How can fat dissolving injections treat a double chin?

The use of fat dissolving injections to reduce a double chin can be particularly effective. It targets areas at needlepoint which is perfect for smaller areas such as the neck and jawline. After the hardening process, the fat cells break down to a nano-size and are expelled through the body as carbon dioxide and water via the liver. The results should begin to show after around three weeks. It is recommended to book extra treatments 4-6 weeks apart until you have achieved the desired effect.

How safe are fat dissolving injections?

The main ingredients used in fat dissolving injections are naturally occurring. The compound Phosphatidylcholine is also found in every cell’s human body. Another ingredient is called deoxycholic acid, which is an artificial substance. This ingredient is the star of destroying the fat cells and is specifically used to treat double chins.

It is important to note that this procedure is not suited for you if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, obese, diabetic, auto-immune compromised, or have infections. There is no downtime for this treatment, and some common side effects may include bruising or swelling at the injection site.
