As we get older we start to notice things that used to be tight and firm becoming a bit loose and soft. Under the chin is very commonplace for the sagging to begin. This sagging often gives the appearance of a double chin which is bothersome for many people. But what causes a sagging chin? Can it be prevented? What can be done to correct it once it’s already started? Those are questions we will answer here today.
A sagging chin usually results from one of three main causes: weight gain, genetics, or the natural aging process. There is a thin layer of fat right underneath the chin. When you gain weight this area can enlarge and begin to droop. As we age all of our skin becomes less elastic and begins to loosen, so even if you have always been a healthy weight, loosening skin can allow gravity to pull the pad of fat under the chin downward. Genetics plays a big role in determining if either will happen for you. If most of your immediate family has or had a saggy chin, chances are you will too unless you do something about it.
You may not be able to change your genetics, but you can fight against them to prevent a sagging chin. Maintaining a healthy weight can go a long way in the battle against a double chin. If the pad of fat under the chin doesn’t enlarge, it’s far less likely to droop. In addition, you can do chin firming exercises like chin lifts and neck rolls to strengthen muscles in the area that keep things nice and tight.
But what if diet and exercise aren’t enough, or if your chin is sagging already? This is when you can rely on Kybella treatments. This is an injectable treatment that safely and effectively treats double chin without the need for surgery. Kybella destroys the wall of fat cells in the treatment area. Your body is then able to naturally process and eliminate the destroyed fat cells permanently. With fat cells gone there is less weight for the skin to support and so the sagging is minimized for a more youthful appearance.
