Nothing dampens the mood like a selfie with a double chin! If you’ve been posing at the right angles so your multiple chins don’t come into view, this one’s for you. Also known as submental fat, a double chin is caused by a combination of fats under the jaw, and loose skin around the chin and neck area. And while many of us simply resign to living with a double chin, there are plenty who use non surgical double chin removal methods and go on to flaunt sharp, younger looking jawlines. 

You read that right! Contrary to popular belief, it is no longer necessary to go under the knife to get rid of submental fat. 

But first, what causes a double chin?

Think sporting a double chin means you are overweight? That may not necessarily be true! Aside from excess weight, double or multiple chins can also be caused due to lifestyle habits. Skin loses elastin and collagen as we age. The process causes our skin to sag, thereby making our chins flabby and obvious. Genetics too has a part to play. If your family is known to flaunt double chins, chances are your submental fat will settle similarly too. This is why plenty of people who exercise and are of a healthy weight range, still find it tough to get  rid of double chins. 

The good news is that there are a range of different cosmetic treatments that are used for double chin reduction in Singapore. Typically these address removal of fat, tightening of jowls or loose skin and contouring of the jawline.  Your doctor may recommend a single or combination of treatments to bring you the results you desire. The best part? These are all non surgical double chin removal methods, which means there’s no stress of invasive procedures or a long downtime period to follow.  

Different options for non surgical double chin removal

Chin Fillers

As we age, our facial bones including our jawline continue to change. This drooping effect of the jowls and loss of volume in the chin, can be replaced with the use of dermal fillers.

These injections are made with natural hyaluronic acid and can help to create a V-shaped appearance and tighten the loose skin under the chin. FDA approved fillers such as Restylane SubQ® and Belotero INTENSE® are some of the products that give good results when it comes to sculpting the chin. However, do keep in mind that there is a difference between male and female aesthetics and your doctor should have the skills and expertise to avoid giving you a masculine chin or vice versa. As for how much time you need, Chin Fillers are a lunch time non surgical double chin removal procedure – both quick and equally effective with no downtime involved at all. However, do keep in mind that chin fillers are a temporary solution, the effects do not last forever unlike an implant. 

Ulthera

Sagging skin worries? Jowls and skin folds on the jawline is a common problem faced by many, especially as we age. And while surgery is always an option, if you’d like to consider a non-invasive, FDA approved ultrasound based skin lifting treatment, Ulthera is one to consider. By stimulating a productive healing response that results in production of collage, Ulthera is able to penetrate the deepest layers of the skin without harming the topmost layer. Results include skin lifting, tightening and defining of a jawline that looks much younger.

Neck Thread Lift

100% bio-absorbable threads that can lift droopy skin up – instantly? As we age, pockets of fat make way for double or multiple chins that almost seem too hard to treat. A Neck Thread Lift is a non-surgical procedure that uses absorbable threads (similar to sutures used in surgery), that stimulate the vectors of collagen, giving a long lasting lift. These threads are basically fine sutures with either cogs or cones in them to hook onto skin. Once inserted into the skin, they are able to create an immediate lift. What makes a Thread Lift different from other procedures is its ability to give longer lasting results. While the thread lift  by itself will visually impress, the threads also activate natural collagen production from inside. This means it will stimulate a strong matrix of collagen that will help secure the skin lift with time. 

Where should you get a non surgical double chin removal procedure done?

Now that you know of the types of non surgical double chin removal methods available in Singapore, your next query will be on where to go? As with most aesthetic treatments, it is always wise to do your research and choose a certified doctor with a good track record. Opting for a reputable clinic also ensures that you are getting quality products – thread lift, ultrasound machines or fillers, with no room for counterfeit or grey market options. 

At the outset, a non surgical double chin removal may seem simple, but a qualified doctor may need to tailor the procedures based on your expectations, proportion of face and amount of sagging. This requires precise skills, that are backed with years of experience and the ability to work with different skin and colour types. Don’t be surprised if your doctor suggests a combination of treatments for effective double chin removal – most of the good ones will! 

Choosing a medical facility and doctor has other benefits too. While the treatments mentioned above are quite safe but should there be any side effects or reactions, your choice of a medical clinic will always be a pragmatic one. Access to the right medication, anaesthesia and post procedure protocols are also some of the key reasons to stick with medical clinics. Many beauty influencers are of the firm belief that your procedure is only as good as the hands of your doctor. So, choose wisely and be rest assured that your non surgical double chin removal, will be a success story worth flaunting about!
