Having a sleek jawline is a powerfully attractive feature that many sought after in Singapore. That is why in Ozhean Zoey, we provide a host of comprehensive aesthetic treatments that will visibly reduce and remove your double chin. Results are permanent (provided your weight stays constant) and thus you can wave your double chin goodbye!

What causes a double chin?

Do you know that double chins have different causes? Do you also know that to have a successful outcome for your double chin treatment, the treatment has to address double chin causes? Do you also know that a successful double chin treatment means results are seen in just one session? Well, that is if a well-trained, professional doctor carried out the procedure and of course if you have maintained a healthy lifestyle.A double chin can happen due to various reasons, and you’ll learn the most common ones in this article content. Sometimes, a double chin is unavoidable, especially if you have been born with it or it runs in your family.  To understand how or why this happens, but read on for a more detailed explanation of each cause.

Age

With ageing, the skin below the chin or neck area loses its collagen, and as a result, it sags down and creates multiple folds below the chin (the skin appears to be sagging). A rough indicator of the elasticity of the skin below the chin is a pinch test. If you are able to pinch a lot of skin below the chin, it will mean the skin has lost its collagen fibres and elasticity. Skin tightening with certain double chin treatment procedures such as Agnes, botox, or even Profhilo will be necessary to treat all these skin folds.

Genetics

Some of us are genetically predisposed to have excessive fat in the submental area (area under the chin). Even the whole body may appear slim, but the face may still look round due to genetics. Just like some of us genetically determined to have more fats in the thighs while for some, they are more concentrated in the torso.

Posture

Poor posture can make your double chin appear worse. When you flex your neck (allow your chin to move inwards towards the throat), it will often make your skin and excessive fat fold more. This is often associated with a poor posture of the upper back. (allowing the shoulders to slack forward). Posture related issues are easily corrected. Remind yourself to arch your upper back and pull your shoulder blades together. Also, lift up your chin and bring it forward a little. This way your neck muscles can form properly. Such a posture also allows you to breathe better and feel better.

Excess Fat

When we gain excessive weight, the fat layer under the chin (or the submental area) will grow and thicken. This blunts the definition of the jaw, making the margins between the jaw and neck indistinct. The reverse is also true. When we lose weight, our face, neck area, and submental area will slim down. That is why we encourage our patients with a high BMI to also lose some weight along with their given double chin treatment procedure. Weight gain is also one of the common causes of double chin especially for adults. It can be harder to lose the weight at the double chin even at a younger age. When a person loses a lot of weight in a short-period, it can cause sagging skin. In addition to fat melting or fat reduction treatments, aesthetic clinics also commonly offer neck skin lifting treatments such as thread lifts, botox, and a face lift.

How to reduce double chin through diet and chin exercises?

Exercise and diet, leading to a caloric deficit will help you to lose weight and fats. Of course, it will also help you to achieve a greater measure of health. As we lose fat, we also lose fat in the double chin area, reducing its appearance. Contrary to belief,  chewing gum, jaw or chin exercises might not have any real improvement to jaw definition.  The key is to lose the excessive fat in that area.   However, even despite our best attempts with chin exercises and diet, we might still have a double chin because we are genetically predisposed to have excessive fat there. Therefore, double chin removal treatments need to be considered to remove it.

Double Chin Treatments in Singapore

In Ozhean Zoey, we have a full suite of aesthetic treatments for a double chin that is result-focused.

What kind of double chin treatment in Singapore should you consider? Which treatment best works for you? There are tons of double chin treatment procedures in the market but only a few  are effective for improving the jaw line, and tightens sagging skin, and also effective for double chin contouring. (such treatments are also commonly used for body contouring)  In addition, you might want to have adequate sun protection in the neck.  That is to protect the skin from skin issues caused by sun damage.   Unhealthy lifestyle habits such as a high caloric diet and lack of exercise should be corrected. healthy, staying away from smoking, drinking water, exercising, and reducing your sun exposure. Collagen production is important to our bodies, and having a healthy lifestyle will prevent collagen loss.

Agnes Fat Reduction

Agnes is a non-surgical method for fat reduction. It is one the most unique needle radiofrequency in Singapore that delivers precise energy with precise pulse and duration control of radiofrequency energy to precisely target the fat layer of the double chin to “melt it”. Temperatures are raised high enough (beyond 70 degrees) to coagulate the fat and also to liquefy it. As a result, the double chin fat is removed and will not recur again at that layer of treatment. It has an excellent safety system with specially designed tips – these tips have a specific depth, and since the radiofrequency energy is administered only at the non-insulated end of the tip, none of this RF energy is transmitted to the skin, thus preventing any chance of skin damage. This treatment procedure gives a good 20-40% reduction of double chin fat each session.

Agnes double chin fat reduction is typically carried out with local anaesthesia, with which patients do not experience any pain. Tightening the skin can also be achieved through tips to tighten lax or loose skin at the double chin significantly. Clinical results are distinct after each session and are most visible after 2-3 months. By far, Agnes is the most popular aesthetic treatment procedure for double chins in Ozhean Zoey. It is also commonly done together with jowls or cheek fat.

Secret RF Skin Tightening

Secret RF (Radiofrequency) works by administering the radiofrequency heat along micro needles into the skin. This stimulates collagen remodeling and production in the skin. As a result, loose, saggy skin gets significantly tightened. Folds at the neck or double chin area also get significantly reduced. Secret RF also works wonderfully on the loose neck skin to tighten it.  Most patients find this treatment very tolerable with numbing cream.

Chin Thread Lifting

The new generation of face threads in Singapore is stronger, able to lift the heavier face and double chins. These are fine thin threads despite their strength and are able to lift the loose skin and excess fats visibly to reveal the jawline once again. This double chin treatment is commonly performed with Agnes to remove a double chin distinctly. The chin thread lifting is done under local anaesthesia and very well tolerated by patients. The results are immediate, and it is possible for the patient to resume work right after.

HIFU

HIFU or High Intensity Focused Ultrasound treatment is another popular double chin reduction treatment that utilises ultrasound energy, particularly for people who are looking for a non-surgical option in Singapore. HIFU treatment cannot raise the temperature of the fat layer to coagulate or “melt it” like Agnes. Typically temperatures of 55-60 degrees are reached, and at those temperatures, collagen is stimulated. The double chin is reduced due to fat contraction because of increased collagen in the fat layer rather than fat removal. Results are modest each session with this ultrasound energy inducing collagen treatment, which is why several sessions are needed to see the desired result.
