Losing fat through diet and exercise takes dedication and hard work, but even the most stalwart follower of fat-reducing regimens has an especially difficult time reducing fat deposits under the chin. In fact, the fatty tissue that builds up in a double chin is typically the most resistant to diet and exercise and the last to show any signs of reduction. With that in mind, Naples, Florida-based Tru Glō Medspa is pleased to offer a groundbreaking, non-invasive injectable treatment that works with the body’s natural processes to break down and destroy fat deposits in the chin area.
Why is Fat in the Double Chin so Difficult to Lose?
Technically referred to as “submental fullness,” the double chin is primarily caused by weight gain, aging, and genetic disposition, with all three typically playing a role in most cases. The genetic component is among the most significant factor because it dictates the body’s propensity for how much fat will be stored in the submental (chin) area. Weight gain plays a role because if you put on the pounds a portion of it will end up in the chin according to your genetics. Last, aging plays a role because the muscles in the area weaken with age as the skin gets looser, both of which allow any fat deposits to more easily droop and bulge.
This aging factor adds to the difficulty of reducing double chin by diet and exercise because there is no way to spot reduce fat. Any diet-and exercise-related fat loss in the chin will be proportional to fat loss everywhere else; however, that distinct loss may not be as apparent due to any age-related skin looseness and muscle weakness. Thus, while the two-inch loss of fat around your waist might be apparent, the commensurate amount lost around the chin area might not even be noticed.
Your Premier Naples, FL Medical Spa Offers Kybella®
With the limited results offered by diet and exercise, some people turn to more invasive methods, such as micro liposuction or surgical neck lift, to correct their double chins. However, there is an injectable treatment for double chin that has been clinically proven to reduce submental fat deposits. Approved as a one-of-a-kind treatment by the FDA in 2015, Tru Glō Medspa is now offering its Naples, Florida-area medical spa clients Kybella®, a synthetic formulation of a naturally occurring compound in our bodies that breaks down fat, which is then naturally disposed of by the body’s metabolic process.
Kybella’s® active ingredient is the synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring bile used by our bodies to help with fat absorption during the digestive process. The synthetic form works in a similar manner by breaking down the fat cells it is exposed to after being injected into the treatment area. While results are not immediate, most patients notice a difference within four to six weeks after the first injections. And, because the fat cells are destroyed, results are permanent and no further treatment should be needed after aesthetic goals have been met.
Your Kybella® treatment at Tru Glō Medspa represents a quick procedure that may cause some swelling, tenderness and slight pain, but most patients are able to resume normal daily activities immediately after.
