Who Gets a Double Chin and Why?

Double chins can affect anyone, but they become more common as we age. This is due to several factors:

  • Aging: As we get older, our skin loses elasticity, and our bones and ligaments weaken. This can cause the skin to sag.
  • Genetics: Some people are more prone to developing a double chin due to their genetic makeup.
  • Weight Gain: Excess fat can accumulate under the chin, leading to a double chin.

Why Does a Double Chin Form?

Several physiological changes contribute to the formation of a double chin:

  • Skin Elasticity: As we age, our skin loses collagen and elastin, leading to looser skin.
  • Bone Structure: Aging can weaken the underlying bone structure, diminishing support for the skin.
  • Ligament Strength: Ligaments in the neck weaken with age, exacerbating the appearance of a double chin.
  • Fat Deposition: Fat can deposit in the submental area.

Effective Treatments for a Double Chin

Targeting Fat: SculpSure vs. Aqualyx


  • Procedure: This procedure typically involves multiple sessions, during which a laser device is applied to the target area to heat and eliminate fat cells.
  • Benefits: Minimal downtime, effective for reducing fat in targeted areas, and the treated fat cells are permanently destroyed.
  • Ideal for: Individuals looking to reduce stubborn fat deposits under the chin without surgery.


  • Technology: Injection-based treatment that uses a solution to dissolve fat cells.
  • Procedure: Involves multiple injections into the fat deposit under the chin, where the solution breaks down fat cells, which are then naturally eliminated by the body.
  • Benefits: Non-surgical, with minimal downtime and gradual, natural-looking results.
  • Ideal for: Those who prefer an injectable solution to reduce fat under the chin.

Addressing Loose Skin: Ulthera vs. RF with InstaLift vs. Threads

Ulthera (Ultherapy)

  • Technology: Non-invasive treatment that uses focused ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production.
  • Procedure: Ultrasound energy is delivered to the deep layers of the skin, promoting collagen regeneration and resulting in tighter, firmer skin over time.
  • Requires only a single session usually. 
  • Benefits: Non-surgical, minimal downtime, and natural-looking results that improve over several months.
  • Ideal for: Individuals seeking to tighten loose skin without surgery and who don’t have time for multiple sessions. 

RF with InstaLift 

  • Technology: Combines radiofrequency (RF) energy with thread lifting for a dual approach.
  • Procedure: RF energy heats the skin to stimulate collagen production while threads are inserted to lift and tighten the skin instantly.
  • Requires 6-10 sessions for long-term results, although single sessions can be used for temporary benefits. 
  • Benefits: Provides immediate lifting effects from threads and long-term skin tightening from RF energy.
  • Ideal for: Those looking for a more immediate and visible lift along with long-term skin tightening and are okay with multiple sessions. 


  • Technology: Involves the use of absorbable sutures to lift and tighten the skin.
  • Procedure: Threads are inserted under the skin to lift and tighten sagging areas physically while stimulating collagen production.
  • Benefits: Immediate results with minimal downtime, as well as long-term benefits, as the threads promote collagen synthesis.
  • Ideal for: Individuals seeking a minimally invasive option for lifting and tightening sagging skin under the chin.
