Eating right and following a healthy exercise plan can help you feel your best. But even if you’re at a healthy weight and living a healthy lifestyle, you might be frustrated by your appearance. Regardless of weight, many people struggle with a double chin, or extra fat that has collected below the chin.
A double chin can be stubborn. No matter how much you diet and exercise, it might seem like your double chin doesn’t budge. Kybella® is a popular, FDA-approved treatment developed just for pesky double chins. It’s a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that can help you slim your profile and boost your confidence.
Kybella targets stubborn fat below your chin and dramatically changes your profile. At Essence Skin Clinic, our helpful team of licensed aestheticians is ready to help you get rid of your frustrating double chin with Kybella.
Double chins are stubborn
The term “double chin” describes a condition known as submental fullness. The submental area is the area of your face and neck below your chin. Extra fat below the chin is a common problem that men and women face, and it can be hard to lose weight in the submental area with diet and exercise alone.
There are many reasons you might have a double chin, including:
Genetics plays a role in the shape of your profile and your unique distribution of fat. As you age, your muscles weaken, your face loses elastin and collagen, and fat can collect below your chin. Another common cause of a double chin is weight gain or being overweight.
Because there are many causes of a double chin, eating right and exercising regularly doesn’t mean you’ll lose that annoying double chin. Targeted weight loss is difficult, and unwanted fat, or submental fullness, can be hard to lose.
Even if you are at your goal weight, a double chin can make you look heavier than you really are. It’s time to give yourself a confidence boost and learn more about Kybella.
Kybella can give you a slimmer profile
Popular for men and women alike, Kybella is an injectable treatment that targets and destroys unwanted fat under your chin. Depending on your body and the amount of fat you have below your chin, we may recommend a series of treatments for best results.
During each Kybella treatment session, we administer multiple small injections across your chin. The Kybella solution contains synthetic deoxycholic acid, which aids the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat in your body. When injected into your chin, the solution breaks down the fat that causes a double chin. The Kybella injection destroys fat cells so they no longer can accumulate or store fat.
After you receive the Kybella treatment, you can expect little to no downtime. Common side effects include some swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin, but these symptoms should disappear within a few days. Contact your doctor if you notice any unusual symptoms, including facial muscle weakness or difficulty swallowing.
Kybella is an FDA-approved cosmetic treatment that can help you say goodbye to your pesky double chin once and for all. It’s hard to target submental fullness with diet and exercise alone — Kybella works to target those unwanted fat cells to give you a more flattering profile.
