Excess fat and loose skin collecting under the chin are the primary causes of a double chin. You may find that the bulky shape of your chin makes you look overweight and older than ​your actual age.​

However, finding the most suitable treatment ​plan​ is essential if you want a satisfying improvement. One or more treatment modalities may be recommended for the best results.

Your chin is the defining feature of your lower face, distinguishing it from your neck. Redefining the chin for a smoother and sleeker contour will give you a boost in self confidence — and something to celebrate everytime you look in the mirror! Double chin treatments reshape the chin, eliminating ​unnecessary​ bulkiness for a sleeker profile. Treatments can achieve dramatic results that typically appear within a few days to m​onths​.
