Often we look into the mirror and find that our face is looking fuller, especially at the under chin region. This region is also called the submental region. Elimination of under the chin, fat deposition is known as the double chin removal process.
Causes Of Double Chin
Generally, double chin is associated with fat gain but it isn’t always necessary to be the same. A lot of things can cause the formation of a double chin
Skin ageing: With the clock ticking forward our body also starts to age slowly. Collagen and elastin are two proteins that are considered to be the foundation of youthful skin. After the age of 25, collagen begins to deplete slowly and thus skin starts to lose elasticity. With the work of gravity, the skin under our chin and jaw-line sag further and creates a double chin.
Structure of the face: Despite young age and slim physique some people develop double chins because of poor facial structure. Some people are born with a weak jaw-line and recessive chin which tends to sag easily and forms a double chin.
Poor posture: With prolonged use of devices like smartphones and laptops, we are prone to develop a double chin! It’s taking a toll on our posture. We tend to look down most of the time while working or chatting on these devices. Due to which the platysma muscle starts to weaken. This muscle connects the chin to the neck and thus skin adjacent to the muscle sags rapidly and develops a double chin.
Weight gain: The most common cause of double chin is gaining excess weight. The excess fat starts to deposit at certain parts of our body and so does on our face and under our chin.
