Double chins are a really common problem amongst both men and women but what causes them to begin with?
Believe it or not, weight gain isn’t the only reason why people end up with double chins men and women who are carrying some extra weight are definitely have a higher risk of developing a double chin.
Age is another common reason why double chins make an appearance. As we age, our skin loses that all-important elasticity, which can cause the skin on and around the face to sag. We also tend to lose muscle mass as we age, so as our chin muscles weaken, the skin starts to sag too, creating the appearance of a double chin.
Lastly, genetics can also play a role in your chances of developing a double chin. If you have a family history of double chins, there’s a chance that you will develop one too.
How to treat a double chin
If you’re looking for ways to get rid of your double chin, there are 3 approaches that you can take.
Non-surgical cosmetic treatments
Fortunately, there are several non-surgical cosmetic treatments that can be used to treat a double chin, some of which are available at Dr Saras & Co Double Chin Removal Clinics in Sydney.
Let’s start with Kybella.
This treatment usually lasts 20 minutes and involves several small injections that will be administered over 3 to 6 sessions. The average Kybella treatment will cost between $1,200 and $2,000.
Next, let’s look at CoolSculpting. This revolutionary treatment freezes and kills fat cells, which are then naturally expelled from the body. CoolSculpting is said to reduce fat thickness by 20% – 25%. During a CoolSculpting session, the fat in your chin will be frozen and massaged in order to move it out of that area. You will need to wait at least a month before you will see any results though. The average CoolSculpting session could cost you anything from $700 to $1,500.
Lastly, there is also near-infrared skin tightening. This procedure generally lasts around 15 minutes and patients can expect a warm wand to be rubbed across the chin area. Unfortunately, this is not a permanent solution and the effects will dissipate after 6 months. The average near-infrared treatment will cost you around $1,500.
Eat more raw foods
Making some healthy changes to your diet is another effective way to reduce the appearance of a double chin. Adding more raw foods to your diet is a great way to slim down and lead a healthier lifestyle, which will automatically counteract the many negative effects of processed foods.
Basically, you will be beautifying yourself from the inside out by adding more raw foods to your eating plan.
Exercise your face
If you know that your double chin is the result of sagging and tired muscles, you can use facial exercises to reduce the appearance of your double chin.
There are a number of facial exercises that can be found online on websites such as YouTube that will help you decrease the size of your double chin and hopefully eliminate it over time.
