The sudden appearance of submental fat or a “double chin” is often enough to make us feel really low about ourselves. This unsightly problem is not only detrimental to the shape of our faces but can make us appear older and more out of shape than we really are. Thankfully, here at Refresh Med Spa LA, our team provides an excellent non-surgical treatment option to help you address this issue.

What Are the Causes?

Double chin is the name we give to an accumulation of submental fat, the fat that builds up underneath the chin. It appears the same way fat builds up elsewhere on the body; your body stores calories to use as energy. If that energy is not used, it collects as fat. Whether that fat will collect under your chin or elsewhere is a matter of genetics.

Why Is Submental Fat Removal So Difficult?

As with anywhere else in the body, it is not possible to spot reduce submetal fat. Exercising and watching your diet is a great way to lose excess weight, but there is no way to know or control where you will lose it. For this reason, many people become frustrated when their weight loss efforts are successful but they still see that double chin.

Double Chin Treatment in LA With Refresh MedSpa LA

At Refresh MedSpa LA, we provide medical weight loss techniques to help you lose weight faster and in a healthy fashion. However, if you have your weight under control and are still struggling with a double chin, all is not lost. We offer Kybella® treatments specifically made for this concern. Kybella® is a substance that helps dissolve fat when injected into the submental area. We simply numb the area and inject the treatment into the fatty tissues under your chin with a fine needle. Over time, a portion of the fat cells in the area are destroyed and leave your body naturally.
