DOUBLE CHIN (SUBMENTAL FAT)
WHAT CAUSES A DOUBLE CHIN?
A double chin - otherwise referred to as submental fat - is a very common condition that occurs when a layer of fat forms beneath the chin. It is often associated with being overweight and weight gain, but the reality is that many people of a healthy weight can also have a double chin.
Age and genetics can also contribute to the accumulation of submental fat and the development of a double chin.
HOW CAN A DOUBLE CHIN BE TREATED?
In order to reduce the appearance of a double chin, the most effective treatment is destruction of the fat cells causing its appearance. This can be achieved by intralipotherapy (DESOBODY). The results are permanent.
