Getting rid of a double chin can be an incredibly frustrating process, and that is one of the reasons why many people turn to ineffective creams and unusual workout routines. Unfortunately, we now know that those products and programs rarely deliver results, but that doesn’t mean you need to live with a double chin. Kybella® is an FDA-approved injectable that quickly and safely melts away unwanted fat just below the chin. This product also tightens the skin in order to create a slim and toned jawline. It is the perfect option for patients who are tired of struggling with a double chin no matter how healthy they try to be.
Double Chin Risk Factors
Double chins can be caused by many different variables including your age and overall weight. Patients should realize that this condition might be the result of their genetics as well, and that is one factor that is completely out of your control. Even if you stay at a healthy weight for your entire life, there may come a point when you look in the mirror and realize that you have too much tissue under the chin. If that sounds like your own situation, then you need to consider proven treatments such as Kybella® injections. Sticking to a comprehensive diet and exercise program will reduce your risk of developing a double chin, but there may come a point when it is time to head to the professionals.
The Science Behind Kybella®
Physically excising the unwanted soft tissue along your jawline isn’t the only way to get rid of your double chin. Kybella® injections contain a synthetic acid that your body naturally creates, and that compound is known as deoxycholic acid. Inside your digestive system, that acid breaks down some of the fatty foods that you eat and turns those nutrients into energy. After quite a few studies, researchers discovered that a concentrated dose of deoxycholic acid can be used to spot treat fat in sensitive areas of the body such as the chin.
After the injections are carried out, the acid will attack all of the nearby fat cells while leaving the rest of your tissue unharmed. Over time, your body will eventually expel those damaged fat cells through your lymphatic system. Kybella® has an exceptionally high success rate, and most patients notice distinct improvements within months of their injections.
Ideal Kybella® Candidates
As a general rule, this product is a great treatment option for anyone who is unhappy with their appearance because of extra tissue below the chin. That being said, you might not be a good candidate if you have recently had any procedures carried out on the face or neck. The scar tissue that is left behind from those procedures could impact the results. It also helps to harbor realistic expectations about this procedure in terms of what it can accomplish.
