7 Solutions for Embarrassing Double-Chin Problems

The double chin is an unfortunate but common concern among people of all ages. It can be caused by a few different things, from weight to genetics to simply having loose skin. Regardless of its origin, many people find it annoying and embarrassing and would prefer to be rid of it. Thankfully, there is plenty you can do about embarrassing double chins, from preventative measures and home remedies to effective and fast-acting professional treatments.

Double Chin Solutions

1. Yoga for your Face

Yoga is an ancient practice meant to improve physical, mental, and spiritual health. It permeates many cultures and is quite common. However, not many people know that you can also do yoga for your face!

It offers similar benefits in terms of strengthening, toning and slimming the area. There’s even one move that’s been dubbed the “anti-double chin” move. This one has you tilting your head back and pressing your tongue against the roof of your mouth, strengthening your neck muscles.

This won’t be a fast fix and may work better at preventing double chins in the first place. But, it’s a small and easy thing you can add to your daily routine!

2. Face Exercises

You can also take it a step further and try some more intensive exercises for your face. There are a variety of “workouts” you can do on your face and many target the chin area directly.

Like a regular workout, you’ll want to do a few different exercises in one session, and each exercise should be done a few times. It’s important to mix it up and do different exercises every day so you don’t hit a plateau. Also, do your best to start slow and amp up intensity over time so you don’t overwork your muscles and become too sore!

3. Skin Sculpting Tools

Nothing can replicate a professional, in-office treatment, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make any progress on your own! There are many tools and devices out there that can offer a sculpting effect at home.

A popular choice is devices that use microcurrent technology. These devices are gentle and non-invasive, using low-level electricity to stimulate muscles and promote cell growth. You can start seeing favourable results after a few sessions.

4. Lymphatic Massage

A lymphatic massage is a special kind of massage that’s meant to help improve and stimulate lymph flow throughout your body. This comes with many benefits including reduced swelling, de-bloating, and pain relief.

It can also help reduce a double chin if there is a build-up of lymph fluid as part of the issue. You can do some basic lymph massage techniques at home, but the best results come from regular professional treatment.

5. Trusculpt ID Treatment

If you want fast, drastic, and noticeable results, one of your best options is a Trusculpt ID Treatment. This device uses radio-frequency energy to target and destroy the fat cells that create your double chin.

Although the treatment uses heat to kill the cells, your skin remains at a comfortable temperature. It’s an easy procedure and once treated, the fat is eliminated through the lymphatic system.

Treatments with the Trusculpt ID offer many benefits:

  • 100 percent non-invasive
  • Very short recovery time
  • Improve both the front and side views of your face
  • Treatment is gentle and comfortable

We offer sessions with this innovative device right here in our clinic. We usually recommend about four to six treatments for the best results – and the results are permanent!

Because the chin is such a small area, sessions only take about 15 minutes. Although it’s a quick treatment, the results take some time to appear. You’ll start seeing a difference between six to 12 weeks later.

6. Gua Sha

Gua Sha stones are simple but powerful tools. When used correctly, they can stimulate lymphatic drainage, reduce puffiness in the face, increase circulation, and stimulate the cells. It also helps with elastin and collagen production, which helps skin stay clearer, firmer, plumper, and overall healthier.

By maintaining clear, tight, and healthy skin on your face and neck, a double chin won’t be able to grow or increase. By stimulating lymph flow and circulation, you can slowly help reduce the build-up of fat and eliminate the double chin. The gua sha is a fantastic addition to any skincare routine and will complement your other efforts in ridding your chin of extra fat.

Different materials offer different benefits, too. For example, tools made from amethyst can help relieve tension in the jaw and improve circulation. This is good news for anyone that struggles with TMJ! Jade, on the other hand, is naturally cool and can help with extreme puffiness and inflammation.

7. Don’t Neglect the Neck

Lastly, don’t neglect the skin on your neck in your regular self-care routines! The gua sha is a great place to start, but your neck and chest need regular TLC, too. You cleanse, tone, and moisturize the soft and delicate skin on your face every day. Why should your neck be any different?

It’s just as exposed to the elements, most of the time, and benefits greatly from proper care. By including your neck in your daily skincare habits, you’ll keep it firmer, more hydrated, and more youthful.

When your neck skin is healthy, tight, and taken care of, it’s less likely to sag and will age more slowly. This works wonders in preventing a double chin from occurring, or getting worse if you already have one. If you’re currently working to eliminate a double chin, start adding your neck into your regular skincare routine along with whatever other treatments you’ve chosen.

Once you successfully eliminate your double chin, keep up with this habit. Your skin will thank you, and it’s an easy way to prevent the double chin from returning.
