Improve Your Posture
Are you looking down at a screen for large portions of the day? Poor posture can make a double chin worse. Remember to keep your shoulders back, chin up, and spine straight whether you’re sitting or standing. Raise your monitor up so you don’t have to look down all the time and try to spend less time staring at your phone or tablet.
Reach A Healthy Weight
Weight loss can’t always eliminate a double chin, but it can usually help reduce it. Make an effort to reach a healthy weight by eating a healthy balanced diet with fruits, vegetables, lean protiens, and whole grains. It is wise to avoid foods with a high fat content, but it may be even more important to avoid foods with lots of sugar and empty carbohydrates. Instead of drinking soda or sugary fruit juices drrink plenty of water and eat actual fruit. You should also look for ways to be active each day—take the stairs, walk your dog, park your car farther away, ride your bike to work, take a yoga class, or lift weights—whatever gets you moving.
Use Kybella Injections To Target Fat Cells
Often, in spite of your efforts, a double chin is hard to eliminate. Fortunately, Kybella offers a simple and lasting solution.
Kybella uses deoxycholic acid to specifically target and destroy fat cells. Kybella is administered through a series of injections. Each session takes about 15-20 minutes and you’ll return for follow up sessions as your doctor sees fit. The number of treatments will vary depending on the individual. Some patients only need 2 treatments while others may need 6. These treatments are minimally invasive and require very little (if any) downtime. This means patients can quickly return to their normal everyday activities.
Because the procedure destroys the fat cells, the results are long lasting. You’ll still be subject to the normal effects of aging and weight gain, but if you keep up healthy habits, your results can be permanent. Schedule a consultation at Nowak Aesthetics to learn more.
