How to get rid of a double chin
The appearance of the double chin may be due to fatty deposits, excess skin, or both. Many factors may contribute to a double chin. This may include weight gain, aging, or genetics. Patients searching for fat reduction may discover a range of personal lifestyle tips or treatment options.
Option one for thinning the face often brings patients to make lifestyle changes. Good nutrition is the baseline for weight loss anywhere on the body. Patients who undergo a lifestyle change by switching to a more nutritious diet, exercise, and healthy sleeping patterns may be able to lose some of the fat in their faces. The face, neck, and chin may thin out. However, the fat cells are still present. Diet and exercise only shrink the cells. With weight gain, the cells will expand again.
Option two is often exercise. Are there exercises to get rid of the double chin and do they work? While there is no ThighMaster or yoga pose for the neck, some people are believers in specific movements or stretches to tone your neck and chin. This may include tilting your head back to look at the ceiling and looking down again, jutting your jaw out, tipping and rolling your neck. However, you cannot spot reduce fat or tighten or tone sagging skin. The bottom line: Conventional wisdom is that you can’t exercise off your double chin in the same way you may tone up your abdomen or tighten up your buttocks.

How Kybella works
Treatment with Kybella requires more than one office visit. Prior to the injections, topical or local anesthesia may be used if patients are concerned about discomfort. Immediately following your Kybella treatment, you may notice a warming sensation in the neck. Over the next few weeks, the fat is dissolved and eliminated by the body. Kybella permanently dissolves the fat cells. Patients begin to notice improvement six to eight weeks after the initial treatment. Additional treatments are spaced one month apart.
Every patient is unique. Several treatments are needed to achieve the optimal results each spaced one month apart. Noticeable improvement may be found after about two treatments. Side effects are limited and temporary. Remember, the results are permanent. Once fat cells are destroyed, they will not regrow in the same area.
