If you are one of the many people who has tried to get rid of a double chin with exercise, you know how frustrating it can be. Double chins happen to all kinds of people, no matter how fit they are. Unfortunately, they can be genetic. That is where KYBELLA® can be the solution. This completely non-surgical treatment can help you get rid of submental fullness, the technical term for a double chin, for good!
Where Do Double Chins Come From?
A double chin is simply an extra layer of fat underneath the chin. A variety of different factors can come together to cause it. As previously mentioned, it is sometimes just a bad deal in genetics. Another contributor is age. As we get older, our skin loses elasticity and is more likely to sag, which can add to the problem. Of course, weight gain can be the culprit as well. The final cause is posture, which can lead to a weakening of the muscles in the chin and neck.
How Does KYBELLA® Work?
Rather than try to shrink the fat cells underneath the chin, KYBELLA® seeks to permanently destroy them. It is an injection that is made up of a bile acid that your body produces in the intestines. When it is injected into the submental fullness, it will attack the structural integrity of the cells it finds there. The surrounding tissues and skin are not affected.
One a fat cell has been destroyed, it will release its contents into your body. It will then be gradually flushed out through natural body processes. Your results are not instant, but rather develop naturally in the following weeks and months. For some people, more than one treatment will be necessary to reach their desired results. The most sessions of KYBELLA® that you can have is six. The appointments are always spaced out at least one month to allow your body time to flush out the released fat.
