Double Chin Causes

What’s causing that double chin that’s keeping you from enjoying your days in the sun in Los Angeles? Some of the common potential causes of a double chin include:

  1. Aging – One of the biggest causes of a double chin is aging. As you grow older, the natural aging process causes you to lose muscle and the skin to loosen. Muscles in the chin slacken and skin stretches, increasing the risk of a double chin.
  2. Genetics – There’s a good chance that double chin is inherited. If you have other family members with a double chin, you may have a greater risk of developing one yourself. Genetics often affect fat storage and water retention, which can both lead to a double chin.
  3. Extra Weight – Extra weight or body fat is another common cause of a double chin. Of course, even individuals who are at a healthy weight may develop a double chin.

With regards to genetics, if other members of a person’s family, such as parents or grandparents, have double chins, then chances are that this person has a much higher chance of developing one. Even if a person’s double chin was caused by genetic factors, he or she does not have to worry because there are non-invasive procedures that will help get rid of the double chin. Age can also play a factor as discussed above. As men and women age, their skin becomes looser and so do their muscles. This can lead to the development of a double-chin. If a person develops a double-chin as a result of aging, he or she may also benefit from treatments that are designed for the skin, such as dermal fillers.
