A double-chin can be difficult, if not impossible, to reduce through diet or exercise. Some people are genetically inclined to store excess fat under their chin, especially as they get older, even when they are height/weight proportionate. Excess fat under the chin can change the overall appearance of the face, reducing chin and neck definition. If you are unhappy with your double-chin, consider the benefits of Kybella injections.
Kybella injections are used to target fat cells and eliminate them permanently. This is an FDA-approved treatment for chin fat and is effective at dissolving small areas of fat accumulation. The treatment involved several injections into the targeted area. Over a few weeks, the fat cells disintegrate and are absorbed by the body. Fat cells do not rejuvenate, so once they are destroyed, they will not return. Patients can receive additional treatments about once a month up to six months until they achieve the results they desire.
Incredible Before and After Results
In just a few months, patients can see a dramatic reduction in their double-chin with the use of Kybella injections. The woman in the before and after pictures is 36-years old and had three Kybella injections spaced about one month apart. The improved definition of her chin and neck is evident, giving her a more youthful, toned appearance.
Targeted Fat Loss with Kybella Injections
Although Kybella injections were originally designed to treat a double-chin, they can be effective for other targeted fat loss. Kybella works best on small pockets of fat that are resistant to other types of weight loss efforts. We have had success using Kybella injections for bulges around the bra, waistline or hips, smoothing the silhouette. It is not a weight loss treatment but can help reshape the body by eliminating fat accumulation in targeted areas.
Incredible advances have been made in the medical cosmetic industry for improving your appearance.
