When people gain weight, genetics play a large role in where the fat accumulates. Some people end up with bigger hips, breasts, buttocks, or belly. Another area some people tend to accumulate excess fat is under the chin. The fatty area under the chin is what is referred to as a double chin.
How to Know You Have a Double Chin
A double chin can be seen easily when a person smiles. Instead of just the chin showing, there is a fold with an area of fat underneath it.
Who Has a Double Chin?
A double chin is not only a characteristic of people who are overweight. People who are at a healthy weight and even considered underweight can have a double chin. Also, some people who are considered overweight may not have a double chin.
Diet and exercise can help reduce the amount of fat in the body. The only problem is that fat loss cannot be targeted. The body sheds adipose tissue wherever the body is programmed to lose it according to genetics. For some, the area under the chin may be the last area where fat loss occurs.
What Can Be Done About It
You can try exercises to reduce the appearance of a double chin. Some of those exercises involve moving the head up and down and side to side. These types of exercises are largely ineffective. Besides the fact that spot-reducing fat in one single area is impossible, it’s also difficult to move and tone the muscles under the chin enough to notice a difference.
This is why I am so excited about a new formula approved by the FDA – Kybella. This fully tested and approved substance has been cleared to tackle double chins!
As an injectable specialist, I have the skills to use Kybella in the safest and most effective ways. This fat-burning formula is injected under the chin, and it melts away fat cells. This means the fat cells are eliminated forever, which nixes a double chin!
Reducing the appearance of a double chin may take several sessions. With each session, the area under the chin should shrink. The exact number of sessions depends on the extent of the double chin.
