When was the last time you had a bf% check done? And what method was used?

8% bf and a double chin? Is it just loose skin or actually a full double chin? Once I get below 10% by face looks so sucked in and emaciated I couldn't imagine a double chin. I can barely pinch on my body, let alone my face at 8%. If it is that bad you might need to see a plastic surgeon?

Exactly, hell, I'm at 14% and I don't have a double chin, which is rare for me.

I can attest.. been around 10% my whole life.. always had this little dbl chin thing when I lower my chin down..
I cut down to like 8% tho a year ago and it was gone..

Do you have an underbite with a small lower jaw and chin? I know a couple people that look like they have no chin at all, it slants down and back from their mouth to their neck. It;s pretty noticable from the side view.

lol it's not a huge double chin;D But it just makes me look fatter unless I'm having a beard all the time. I've both checked the fat percent my myself and I've had someone professional done it.

Why not post a pic so we can get a better understanding? It might just be a personal view you have and not really be a big deal. Look at guys like Dexter Jackson. Ripped to shreds but look how fat his face is. obviously related to chemical enhancements though.

im in the same boat..got an accumeasure says im at 5% so im thinking atleast 6, from the side its very noticeable

Have you looked at DS Vexum.SL?
This is a new product, so I haven't seen any reviews.
WHO SHOULD USE VEXUM.SL?
Indicated for men and women developing unsightly double chins, Vexum.SL offers a quick, affordable, scientifically proven alternative to that thick flabby tissue that hangs between the lateral branches of the lower jaw. The breakthrough topical formula even helps to stave off looming face-lift surgery.
HOW VEXUM.SL RESTORES YOUR NECK AND CHIN
Proven through clinical trials, Vexum.SL reduces the thickness, volume, and appearance of a double chin, while restoring normal contour to the upper neck. Vexum.SL works because it contains polymannuronate and prolamins to tighten skin on contact, plus glaucine to reduce lipid storage over the long term.
Glaucine. Preservative-free glaucine, a water-soluble crystalline alkaloid from the botanical Glaucium flavum, stimulates lipolysis and inhibits the formation of new adipocytes by regulating calcium flow, according to clinical studies.
In vitro, the multifunctional molecule is observed to slow adipocyte maturation by 62 to 93 percent and to reduce lipid storage by 36 to 86 percent, depending on dosage. Glaucine’s inhibitory power is measured through the activity of a specific marker, G3PDH, in human pre-adipocyte cultures.
Its effectiveness in diminishing extant fat, meanwhile, can be witnessed with a microscope, as the size of lipid vesicles contract visibly. Cultured with glaucine, the contractile properties of adipocytes are observed after just six days of incubation, as fat tissue gets replaced by a tissue possessing fibroblastic characteristics.
In live tests, 25 female volunteers applied an emulsion to their chins twice daily for 56 days. Double-chin volume was measured by FOITS technique, and thickness of the fatty tissue was measured by echography. As a result, 88 percent of the subjects dropped a measurable thickness of double-chin fat, and 64 percent enjoyed a significant one-to-two-milliliter decrease in volume.
Polymannuronate/prolamin blend. Users report that facial skin tightens almost immediately because Vexum.SL incorporates natural ploymannuronate (from marine algae) and prolamins (wheat proteins).
Polymannuronate is a hydrophilic polysaccharide from the Macrocystis pyrifera, a fast-growing giant laminar algae (kelp) with pneumatocysts (gaseous bladders) that give the organism buoyancy as it floats in the Pacific Ocean near California.
Prolamins are wheat proteins with high molecular weight, rich in glutamine and glutamic acid.
In sensory evaluations with human subjects, 33 trained volunteers applied a gel containing 10 percent polymannuronate/prolamin blend to the face. After just five minutes, 76 percent of the panelists reported a medium to strong tightening effect.
In evaluating other important parameters: 67 percent noted very little residue; 85 percent said the gel showed very good penetration; 94 percent praised the way it spread out and left a smooth surface; and 82 percent remarked on its freshness.
WHAT VEXUM.SL MEANS TO YOU
The proven science behind Vexum.SL means that it can reduce the thickness, volume, and appearance of an unsightly double chin, and stave off the looming indications for a face-lift.
So you continue to radiate youth and vigor for years to come, which pays dividends in your career, your love life — your whole life.
Compare the ingredients. Read the science. Then try Vexum.SL to smooth, tighten, and restore the normal contours of your own chin and neck.
VEXUM.SL IS EASY TO USE
For best results, apply two pumps into your hand and massage Vexum.SL under the chin twice daily, morning and night, after cleansing.
