25 November Double Chin
What is a Double Chin?
A double chin, also known as submental fat, is a common condition that occurs when a layer of fat forms below your chin. Many of us have stubborn fat despite diet and exercise. A double chin is often associated with weight gain, but you don’t have to be overweight to have one. Genetics or looser skin resulting from ageing may also cause a double chin.
Please see our CoolSculpting CoolMini™ to find out about the treatment River Aesthetics recommend for this condition.
