The time is rapidly approaching for New Year’s resolutions. Some people vow to quit smoking and drinking or find a job they love, but the majority of Americans look to New Year’s as a time to lose weight. However, if the fat that you want to shed is located under under your chin and contributing to an unattractive and unwanted double chin appearance, you may be wondering how it’s even possible to lose that weight. Your answer can be found in Kybella.
Also known as submental fullness, the double chin is a condition that arises when saggy stores of fat accumulate in your chin and neck area. Many double chins are actually caused by water retention, which is a genetic trait. Muscle tone also fades with age, and the thinner skin on the chin and neck is first in line to respond by sagging. Kybella, the newly released FDA-approved injection for anyone with a double chin, has the potential to restore your neck and chin area by eliminating extra fat and stimulating youthful contours once again.
The Science Behind Kybella
Kybella is an injectable made of deoxycholic acid that is injected into and under the shin to dissolve extra fat in those areas. Deoxycholic acid is actually the same molecule the body naturally produces to break down and absorb fat cells, so as soon as it enters the chin and neck it sticks to its normal task of eating away unwanted fat cells. Once those fat cells are gone, they cannot come back.
You’ll Love Your Kybella Results
Most patients find that anywhere between two and six treatments of Kybella, each about a month apart, delivers the best and longest lasting results. Throughout these injections, Kybella will work to gradually reduce your double chin and sustain a smooth, beautiful contour in its place. Best of all, these results are achieved without any surgery, pain, or downtime. All you need to do is maintain a healthy lifestyle, and your double chin and all of that pesky extra fat will be gone for good. Now you can welcome 2017 with extra confidence.
