It is the human body’s trait to store the excess food consumed, so as to use it later. The body does this by storing food in the form of glycogen in the muscles and fat, under the skin. As the deposit builds, the layers of fat become more prominent and visible.
This chin is one of the areas where the stored fat is exceptionally visible. The fat builds up under the chin, stretching the skin and soon, it results in what appears as the double chin. The double chin is the cause of woe to many. They do their best to hide it. Most go on diets and try their hand at all sorts of ways at weight loss. In a time where selfies are all the rage, people get bothered by the appearance of a double chin.
What to do?
Exercise, of course, is the most effective way and natural way against fat buildup. But in some people, for many reasons, exercise alone does not get the job done. Such situations call for advanced technologies such as injection lipolysis.
Injection lipolysis works great on localized fat deposits. Most people require about 2-3 sessions in a period of 4-6 weeks to achieve the desired results. The procedure is relatively painless too.
In some, the problem is not just fat, but excess skin as well. So a skin tightening procedure like Radiofrequency or HIFU can help. If you need quick results, a thread lift magically lifts and drapes the area.
It is not just the pleasantly plump who need attention to this area. Even the skinny may feel the loose skin and prominent neck lines. A simple meso Botox treatment can give significant improvement to this area.
