Introduction: Causes of Double Chins
A double chin is caused by the accumulation of an extra fat layer beneath the chin. While having a double chin should signal that you are gaining weight and need to be proactive about weight loss, it can be caused by other factors. These factors include:
- Bad posture: Bad posture can cause the muscles around the chin to weaken thus allowing the skin to loosen. When your skin is loose, it won’t hold the body fat around this area well thus forming a double chin.
- Genetics: It might be a common occurrence in the family. In this case, your genes are to blame because they naturally make your skin lack elasticity. This increases the likelihood of you developing the condition.
- Aging: As you age, the skin naturally loses elasticity and becomes saggy. Therefore, you are more likely to have the condition.
- Overall weight gain: Bad dietary practices and lack of exercise mean your body has a higher percentage of body fat. The more fat your body has going around, the more likely you will end up with a double chin.
There are many ways to tackle the issue, but we have listed 3 of the most effective treatments below. Wave goodbye to your double chin and say hello to your V-shape face!
HIFU Treatment in Singapore
The human skin has something called collagen fiber that plays a key role in maintaining skin elasticity, but its production will start to slow down as you age.
HIFU, also referred to as High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound, is a non-invasive and painless way to get rid of a double chin. The procedure heats up the collagen fibers and stimulates them to thicken thus creating a lifting, tightening effect.
The new HIFU treatment in Singapore uses technology that also melts fat as it tightens the skin making it more effective. The procedure is suitable for people of all ages.
HIFU price from $450 to $3000 in Singapore on average.
Chin Fillers in Singapore
Chin fillers are a non-invasive way to get rid of the extra pocket of fat that weighs down on your chin when you have a double chin.
When it is injected into the skin, it dissolves the fat tissue and allows your body to naturally metabolize the dissolved fat and remove it through the lymphatic system.
For safety reasons, your doctor should be licensed to conduct the procedure in Singapore. Depending on your condition, you may need more than one injection.
Chin fillers price from $800 to $1500 usually.
Botox for Jaw Reduction
Botox is a toxin that is produced by certain species of bacteria. It is widely used by plastic surgeons to alleviate crow’s feet and get rid of frown lines. Other than wrinkle reduction, it can also be used to rejuvenate the neck if you have the double chin.
Botox for jaw reduction and slimming involves receiving an injection into the platysmal bands around your neck. The toxin tightens the muscles thus lifting the neck and narrowing the lower face.
A Botox injection typically takes less than one hour to perform, and its effects last a few months (depending on how your body reacts). Your doctor will guide you on how many injections you need.
Jaw Botox price from $650 to $1200 in Singapore.
