What causes double chins?
Double chins can be an issue for many people for various reasons:
AGEING - The Reduction of muscle tone and thinning skin contribute to sagging, especially beneath the chin.
GENETICS - Some people inherit a predisposition to fullness underneath the chin, and this can begin to show at a fairly young age, getting more noticeable as we age.
WEIGHT - Weight gain can also be a common factor for people with a double chin. Even a moderate weight gain may result in more noticeable fullness under the chin and some rolls appearing.
