There are a number of factors that can cause the appearance of a double chin. These can include age, genetics, weight gain, and more. What happens is that the skin beneath the jawline softens, sags, droops, and appears to be heavier. The ageing process or any of the other factors diminishes collagen and elastin, and in some cases the bone mass, muscle mass and the fat held directly beneath the skin can also be lost.
At The Cosmetic Clinic we offer the latest non-surgical treatment that uses fat dissolving cosmetic injections to reduce the appearance of a double chin. A complimentary consultation with one of our highly trained and experienced medical team is required so that can determine your suitability for the treatment.
