The best way for most people to get rid of a double chin is with weight loss by means of diet and exercise. There are a lot of people who have been able to achieve their goal in this way. When they live a healthier lifestyle, they lose fat all over their body. In many cases, this fat also leaves the area around their face. For those who are extremely fortunate, they actually start to lose weight in their face and under their chin right when the pounds start dropping off. Many, however, aren’t so fortunate. If you fall into the latter category, Kybella®
may be right for you.
You Can’t Target Fat Loss
Many have worked incredibly hard with their diet and exercise, yet they are stuck with a double chin. Since they have absolutely no control over where they will lose the fat, there is nothing they can do to get rid of a double chin on their own. They are at a healthy weight, they live a healthy lifestyle and they exercise regularly. However, none of these things have done any good when it comes to getting rid of stubborn, excess fat underneath their chin.
If a person is extremely bothered by their double chin, they may turn to liposuction. This is a surgical procedure that will physically remove the fat from under the chin. Of course, liposuction does have its benefits. However, many out there are just not willing to take the risks that are associated with surgery in order to get rid of a double chin. Others are actually great candidates, but they do not have the time to recover or don't like the idea of potentially dealing with scarring.
If you are interested in a non-surgical way to remove your double chin, we invite you to learn more about Kybella®. This is a product that is gently injected under the chin. As it goes to work, it gets rid of the fat cells. As the fat cells die off and are removed through your body, you will get to enjoy as the treated area slowly becomes slimmer. After a few treatment sessions, you will be able to completely say goodbye to your double chin forever.
What Can I Expect with Kybella®?
Treatment is often begun by cleansing the area under your chin and drawing some form of a grid on the area to ensure smooth and even results. We will then use that grid to make our injections. The number of treatment sessions you will need will depend on factors such as your personal needs and goals, which we will discuss with you during your consultation.
