Many of us have double chins. No matter how much we workout and eat right, the double chin sits there. There doesn’t seem to be a way to get away with it. But now there is a solution and it isn’t as complicated as you might think.
The FDA has approved the Kybella injection,a nonsurgical injection technique used to reduce excess fat beneath the chin. Skin Wellness Dermatology of Alabama is happy and proud to bring Kybella to the Vestavia Community to address this extra skin under the chin.
Submental fat, more commonly known as the double chin, is something that affects people of all shapes, sizes, ages, and genders. Recently, a study was done and it was discovered that this extra skin was resistant to exercising. This means that people that have been living with the submental fat have struggled to get rid of it even with exercise. If you are part of the nearly 70% of people who have been living with the double chin, then Kybella could be just what the doctor ordered.
How Does Kybella Really Work?
Kybella is a new injectable treatment that melts away the excess fat that causes double chins. The substance is a man-made form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring material that helps the body absorb fat. Double chins can be a pesky problem area, but with Kybella you can destroy the fat cells contributing to this unflattering phenomenon.
The common side effects include swelling, bruising,pain, hardness and redness. There is also the possibility that you could have trouble swallowing. Possible nerve damage is also a side effect that could occur
