Everyone knows what a double chin is but technically, it is heaviness under the chin area.
Why does it happen?
People assume it is always due to excess fat, but it is often due to skin laxity or a strong platysma muscle. However, we always advise patients to reach their weight goal before targeting this area to get better results. There is usually an element of excess fat but it is extremely common to get it in slim patients as well, especially from their 30s onwards.
Can help increase structural support for the heaviness under the chin and disguise it. Chin filler can also be used to eliminate or soften chin dimples and ridges, and can be used to improve a deep mental crease and shadowing of the chin.
If a patient has a very strong platysma muscle (collar like muscle around the neck), it may be excessively pulling down the jawline. Relaxing this muscle with wrinkle relaxing injections can improve the jawline’s definition and improve the double chin area.
This is radiofrequency with microneedling and can help tighten the skin and shrink fat cells, resulting in a more defined jawline. It is best to do Morpheus 8 before fillers as it can potentially dissolve fillers quicker. It also means you will require less filler and it will sit better when the skin is tighter.
This is radiofrequency without microneedling, which is less invasive than Morpheus 8 and therefore has less downtime. It transmits energy to the tissues under the skin and causes a tightening effect to the skin and deeper layers.
