Double Chin

Double chins, also known as submental fat, is a condition whereby a layer of fat forms below the chin. A double chin is often associated with weight gain, but this is only one cause amongst several others.


Information on Double Chin

As we age, the skin loses its elasticity which leads to sagging skin. This drooping skin may contribute to the appearance of a double chin. Poor posture weakens the muscles in the neck and chin. When muscles are not used, the surrounding skin loses its elasticity, which may result in a double chin.

There are many exercises which can help reduce a double chin and changes in diet may also lead to improvements. Some people opt for cosmetic procedures to reduce the appearance of their double chin.

We offer solutions to improve the appearance of a double chin here at Harpenden Skin Clinic.
