Why do we develop a double chin as we age? Is there a solution? The answer is yes.
Dr. Rajani explains the reasons we develop a double chin are multi-factorial–but mainly as we age, we lose collagen. Collagen is our most abundant protein and provides structure to our epidermal tissues and keeps us looking young and vibrant. Collagen reduction over time creates pre jowl sulcus, or “jowling”. Fat settles into the area and our whole face begins to drop, and as gravity dictates, fat begins to accumulate underneath the jaw line, creating the double chin.
