The Best Treatments for a Double Chin
A double chin also referred to as submental fullness, is a condition in which excess fat develops on the underside of the chin. This common concern is not always directly related to weight; it can show up and stick around no matter what type of diet and exercise routine you follow. An injectable treatment called Kybella can help patients defeat submental fullness.

The effects of aging on skin and muscle laxity as well as weight gain can contribute to submental fullness, also known as a double chin. It can also be a matter of genetic inclination.
Starting in our 30s, and for some as early as their 20s, our skin begins to show signs of aging, skin laxity, or skin sag. Lifestyle habits like poor exercise and diet can also contribute to weight gain in our 30s when the metabolism begins to slow down, and we cease to burn as much fat. Fat then begins to accumulate under the chin and the double chin can become more emphasized.
Unfortunately, our bodies are not built for spot reduction or losing weight in one specific area. So, you probably won’t see the results you want if you’re thinking of trying chin exercises to work off your double chin.
On the other hand, rigorous exercise routines involving weights and cardio combined with strict diets aimed at overall weight loss has a chance to reduce excess fat in the neck and chin. But even this is not a guaranteed success when it comes to submental fat.
Fortunately, there are a number of cosmetic treatments specifically designed to target this stubborn area, and many patients report significant results and satisfaction after their treatments.
