Double Chin

What's submental fat, and does it have anything to do with telepathy?

Bad joke, but no--in case you were wondering. Submental fat is what you call for fat under the chin, and in general refers to what you might know as double chin.

No one likes the look of double chin, and it can be especially aggravating to those who eat well, exercise, and generally live a healthy lifestyle but can't seem to shake off the double chin.

But guess what? Double chin doesn't have to be a problem anymore.

Enter Kybella

If you've heard of fat reduction treatments, you might know of liposuction, CoolSculpting, and all the like. But what you might not have heard of is that there's an even less invasive procedure out there that uses compounds naturally found in your body to kill fat: and it's called Kybella.

Kybella uses what's known as deoxycholic acid. This is what your body uses to digest fats, generally. By injecting Kybella into your chin, you can permanently kill -- and permanently is the operative word here -- fats.

What's the difference between killing fats and simply dieting them away? Basically, normally when you diet and exercise, you're simply reducing the size of fat. And it's a global effect that occurs all over your body.

That's why problem areas can be so persistent. Even if you're doing a great job of dieting and exercising, the contour of your body might be largely determined by genetics.

The Kybella Difference

A treatment like Kybella, however, achieves what diet and exercise can't: spot reduction.

By killing fat in a specific area, you permanently change the contour of your body and the distribution of fat. Meaning, even weight you put on won't distribute itself the same way onto your body.
