A double chin can occur at any age, and it’s not exclusive to people who are overweight. In fact, the buccula (which means little cheek in latin) is the medical term for a double chin, and the reason people end up with this hanging cheek of sub-mental fat is often due to genetics or excess skin laxity. Which can come with age.

You’d be forgiven for serving the squint-eye to the non-invasive body-sculpting movement. Otherwise known as laser treatments that promise to do the job of liposuction, permanently zapping away 20-30 per cent of fat with no downtime or risks…cue eye roll. If there’s anything A Current Affair’s ‘Love Scam’ segment has taught us, it’s to not believe everything you read on the Internet.
So when a recent study came out announcing the body contouring market is expecting to reach a market value of over $1.1 billion by the end of 2022, we got curious. Do they even work? How do they work? And are there seriously no side-effects?

FaceXercise, a blood-pumping, skin-toning and sculpting treatment developed by celebrity facialist Thuyen Nguyen, is how stars like Amal Clooney, Cindy Crawford and Katy Perry primped for the Met Ball earlier this month.
