Are you familiar with the chin-up exercise? Most people get exposed to it in childhood physical education classes. It happens to be a powerful and effective way to build upper body strength. But I’m not referring to that chin-up method. I’m talking about a process that easily takes care of the area under the chin that doesn’t respond to dieting or any type of exercise. I’m talking about getting rid of that double chin in the most effortless, non-surgical way possible, once and for all.

Double chin is a condition that affects both men and women. In fact, a 2015 survey by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) reports that 67% of people are bothered by their double chin.

Submental fullness, the medical term for double chin, is a condition that bothers people as much or more than lines and wrinkles around and under the eyes. Yet, it remains an undertreated condition. That may be due to the fact that a chin lift is a surgical procedure that many people simply don’t want to endure.

Fortunately there is now an effective, non-invasive way to eliminate your double chin. KYBELLA® is helping men and women who have not wanted to have surgical procedures. The treatment consists of a series of injections into the fatty area under the chin.

The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected under the chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells can no longer store or accumulate fat.

The number of KYBELLA® injections will vary depending on the desired aesthetic you are looking to achieve. However, no more than six are required. Always work with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon trained in KYBELLA® injections. You’ll be proud to hold your chin high.
