2. Get a cosmetic treatment

There are a few cosmetic treatments that can help reduce a double chin, and some of the most commonly used include:

  • Radiofrequency: is a technique that helps to reduce localized fat, helping to make the skin firmer, as it releases fat and increases blood circulation. In this technique, a gel is applied to the chin, sliding a device over the gel with circular movements and the results are progressive;
  • Laser: The Nd:YAG lasers and the diode laser are the most suitable for eliminating fat under the chin;
  • Deoxycholic acid: this acid is made from a molecule that exists naturally in the body, from bile acids, and has the action of destroying fat in the body. It is a procedure done by qualified professionals, and when applied to the desired region, they cause a local inflammatory reaction that helps to reduce fat and sagging;
  • Mesotherapy: consists of the application of injections of draining, lipolytic and firming substances, requiring 6 to 10 weekly sessions;
  • Cryolipolysis: it is an aesthetic treatment that acts by cooling the treated region at low temperatures, crystallizing the localized fat, which is eliminated naturally by the lymphatic circulation;
  • Lipocavitation: although this region of the neck has accumulated fat, to perform lipocavitation it is necessary to form a fold of fat, so this procedure is only indicated for people with a larger double chin.

In addition to these treatments, lymphatic drainage sessions can be performed on the face, which helps to eliminate fat cells and reduce the swelling of the double chin. See the step-by-step video on how to perform lymphatic drainage on the face:

3. Get liposuction or facelift

The chin liposuction is a cosmetic surgery where excess fat is aspirated from the chin through small holes and is usually done in overweight people.In some cases, liposuction is not the solution and it is also necessary to do a facelift to remove excess skin from this region, as happens in older people or people who have lost a lot of weight. Understand how the facelift is done.

Both liposuction and facelift are expensive cosmetic procedures and must be performed under local anesthesia, not requiring hospitalization and recovery is fast, taking an average of 2 weeks. After the surgery, there may be some swelling and dark spots in the first few days and, to help you recover well, it is important to put a compression bandage on your face and perform lymphatic drainage in the first week.

How to disguise the double chin

In addition to aesthetic procedures and application of firming creams, some techniques can help to disguise the double chin naturally, such as:

  • Wearing makeup: you should use a powder darker than your skin tone to accentuate your jawline and apply mascara to your eyes to make them appear larger, focusing attention in the eyes and diverting attention from the rest of the face and, therefore, you should opt for light and neutral lipsticks.
  • Have hair at shoulder length: hair should be past the shoulders, because hair that touches the neck draws attention to the double chin or that is too long elongates the face;
  • Using a beard: in the case of men, a careful beard helps to disguise the double chin;
  • Avoid necklaces: who has double chin, should not put necklaces around the neck even if they are not fair, because it captivates people's attention;
  • Maintain an upright posture: keeping your back straight, throwing your shoulders back and keeping your back straight, helps prevent fat from accumulating in the neck;
  • Opt for V-neck blouses: because that makes the neck look longer.

These are just techniques that can help to disguise the double chin, but do not eliminate it permanently.
