Belkyra - treatment of double chin
Double chin is a common aesthetic problem, which affects many age groups and until now, often not treated effectively. No matter the diet or exercise regime, the fullness in the double chin zone doesn’t disappear and often makes people feel older or heavier than they are.
The reasons for this can be:
- AGING – the problem can develop naturally with age
- GENETICS – hereditary reasons
