The main causes of double chin

So, what is a double chin? A double chin is also known as submental fat. This is caused by an extra layer of fat, which develops beneath the chin and towards the neck area.

Several different factors affect the hormones in the body, which results in a double chin. One of the most common factors is age.

The skin will lose its elasticity as the body ages that will lead to the appearance of saggy skin or extra skin around your neck and under the chin.

Diet and weight are also very important factors in the formation of a double chin. Genetics has its factors, as well.

Genes play an important role in people developing a double chin. Posture and lack of sports activities will weaken the muscles that keep the skin around the chin tighten.

If we consider the skin aging, the neck is the first place that shows age. For some people, fat is more likely to collect under the chin than in other parts of the body.

The extra fat and loose skin will affect their overall jaw and facial profile. There are some treatments you make take into consideration, which can include a double chin laser as well, for those who are a huge fan of new laser treatments.
