It doesn’t take much weight gain on some people for them to develop a double chin. In fact, some double chins are genetic and not caused by weight gain at all. A double chin is fat deposit/pad found under the lower jaw and often around the neck which makes the skin appear to sag downwards creating an appearance of having a roll or a second chin.
It can happen naturally from aging as the skin begins to lose elasticity and the muscles lose strength. However, most people who have extra weight, also have a double chin. It can effect their self esteem and make them look older, heavier and less healthy than they really are. We offer 2 main options to reduce fat in a double chin, one is CoolSculpting and the other is Belkyra.
Fat cells are frozen and permanently destroyed with CoolSculpting. The procedure is painless and non-surgical. One to two sessions, 35 minutes long, spaced 2 months apart is required to significantly reduce a double chin. Learn more...
By searching the internet you will find options for natural fixes including exercises and chewing gum. Although some of these may help, there is now a way to reduce a double chin with simple, non-surgical injections. Belkyra (Kybella in the U.S.) is an injectable liquid that will destroy fat cells during a series of 3-6 treatments spread 4-6 weeks apart. By disrupting the membrane of the fat cell and leaving the waste to be processed by your body, Belkyra reduces your double chin and re-defines your jawline.
