Fighting a double chin can be frustrating. If you have sagging skin and accumulated fat under your chin and around your neck, getting rid of it can take more than diet and exercise. New York Skin & Vein Centers offer a range of double chin treatments. We will choose the best one for you based on your needs and concerns.
What Causes a Double Chin?
If you wonder why you have a double chin, you can blame a combination of factors. Causes of a double chin often include:
- Genetics: Some people develop a double chin due to their genetic makeup.
- Aging: Our skin loses elasticity and collagen as we age, leading to sagging skin and a double chin.
- Weight gain: Excess weight and obesity can cause an accumulation of fat in the area under the chin.
- Screen time: Keeping your head down or forward can cause creases in the skin and loose neck skin. Because we spend so much time looking at screens, this condition is often called “tech neck.”
The cause of your double chin will determine whether your treatment needs to deal with loose skin, excess fat, or both.
