Double Chin

A double chin, otherwise known as “submental fat”, is a condition where there’s a layer of fat that forms under the chin. If you have this cosmetic condition, you might think it makes you look fatter and uglier. Many people have this condition, and many want to get rid of it even though it poses no health risks. Let’s find out what you can do about it.

What causes a double chin?

People believe that double chins are mainly due to someone being overweight. While this is true, you don’t actually have to be overweight to have a double chin. There could also be other aggravating factors like someone’s genetics or having looser skin due to ageing. The following are factors that contribute to a double chin:

Ageing

The skin loses elasticity as we age, which can lead to saggy skin that causes a double chin.

Diet and weight

While weight gain isn’t always the cause of a double chin, it is one of the reasons why you could have one. A diet high in calories, processed foods and unhealthy fats can cause weight gain and eventually a double chin.

Genetics

Genetics may play a role in developing a double chin. Those with a family history of skin with poor elasticity or double chins are more likely to get a double chin themselves.

Poor posture

Poor posture can weaken the muscles in the neck and chin, which causes the surrounding skin to loosen as they lose elasticity. Over time, this contributes to a double chin.

Picosure Laser

The Picosure Laser is so named because of its picosecond laser – the pulse duration of the laser is one-trillionth of a second. This patented technology allows laser beams to penetrate deeper into the skin to allow for effective collagen production. Each Pico Laser has different pulse durations ranging from 450 picoseconds to 750 picoseconds. The shorter pulse duration gives it better safety, higher efficacy and reduced damage and discomfort as compared to normal nanolasers. With Picosure Laser, we’re sure you’ll get rid of all your skin issues in no time.

Threadlift

Threadlifts use polydioxanone (PDO) threads which are fully resorbable by the body to enhance, redefine and shape parts of the face. Cheeks and nose are commonly reshaped by threadlifts to bring out a more aesthetic outcome. Threadlifts are minimally invasive, and although more invasive than face fillers, they last twice as long (about 1 to 2 years), which is well worth it. Threadlifts can lift any sagging skin and give the entire face a more youthful look. They can also help to lift nose height and give a slightly shaper nose tip. The effects of threadlifts are immediate and you should see better contours right after treatment.

Potenza

Potenza is a radiofrequency (RF) microneedling technique that combines monopolar and bipolar RF at 1 or 2 MHz frequencies in a single device. Heat and microwounds created by ultrafine needles are used to trigger the skin’s natural healing response, so that collagen and elastin are remodelled and regenerated. The microneedles use Tiger Tip technology, meaning they can deliver RF energy at 2 different depths in a single treatment, thus saving time and reducing discomfort for the patient. The RF energy is delivered deep into the skin to produce dramatic results, helping to improve any signs of ageing and improve blemishes or scars.
It takes only about 30 to 45 minutes to complete treatment for reducing acne scars, stretch marks, reducing open pores or tightening and firming your skin.
