Are you bothered by chin fat that won’t seem to respond to diet and exercise?
We get it. Chin fat can be extremely difficult to target; it usually only responds to major weight loss. Unfortunately, it’s also some of the most visible fat on the body. After all, people look at your face on a daily basis, so excess chin fat might make you feel self-conscious. And what’s more, some people are prone to storing fat underneath their chin, even if they’re naturally slim and toned.
Luckily, there’s a new non-surgical treatment out there that can help reduce the appearance of chin fat. Kybella is an FDA-approved injection that contains deoxycholic acid as its main active ingredient. When deoxycholic acid is injected into the submental tissue, it actually eawhatts away at fat cells – without harming surrounding healthy tissue. With just 1-2 Kybella injections, most patients see a significant reduction in under chin fat, leading to a much more contoured jawline.
Side effects from these injections may include a slight burning sensation and swelling at the injection site. Best of all, there’s no major downtime associated with Kybella; most patients can continue with their normal routine immediately after their procedure. Results are permanent, as the fat cells don’t return after they’ve been destroyed. However, it is important for patients to continue following a healthy diet and exercise regimen, as it doesn’t prevent the formation of new fat cells.
