Do you have a double chin that you’re struggling to lose, but don’t want to undergo surgery. If you have tried neck exercises and healthy diets to get rid of your double chin but nothing seems to work, you may be wondering if it’s really possible to reduce it without surgery.
Although a double chin is often linked to weight gain, it can also be caused by genetics or loose skin as a result of aging. Regardless of the cause a double chin can be very challenging to treat.
Can you reduce your double chin without surgery
Thanks to minimally invasive treatments like Kybella, it’s possible to reduce your double chin without surgery.
Kybella is the first and only FDA approved cosmetic injectable treatment for submental fat, or fat below the chin. Kybella is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, which is a substance that is naturally found in the body and is used to breakdown dietary fat (read more).
How Kybella works to reduce your double chin
A tiny needle is used to inject Kybella into the targeted area below the chin, and the deoxycholic acid breaks down the membrane of the fat cells. The treated cells are then processed by the body, and eliminated over the following weeks.
Kybella treatment is relatively painless, but patients may feel some discomfort during treatment.
A single Kybella session consists of several injections, and the number varies depending on the amount of fat being targeted. It typically takes 4-6 treatments to achieve the best results.
