The latest news on how to get rid of a double chin

The Latest News on how to Get Rid of a Double Chin with Dr. Adam Maddox at Thrive

“Submental fullness” is a common problem – double chin. From a front view or in profile, this extra fat makes you look heavier and older than you are. Even people without weight problems can have double chins. The condition occurs in both genders, and it gets worse with age and skin becomes lax. For generations, people have been wondering how to get rid of a double chin. Dr. Adam Maddox brings the latest treatment to patients in the Portland area.

Home remedies – you be the judge

Here are some common at-home tactics to reduce submental fullness:

  • Chewing gum (to tone jaw muscles).
  • Chin exercises, meant to give facial muscles a workout.
  • Cocoa butter or wheat germ oil massaged into the neck for suppler skin.
  • A masque of egg whites, honey, milk, and lemon juice to tighten skin.
  • A mixture of glycerin, Epsom salt, and peppermint oil for firmer skin.

While some of the theories make sense, there are no scientific studies to back up results. None of these treatments attack the source of the problem – an extra layer of fatty tissue.

Professional treatment that works

Kybella is a fat reduction technique designed specifically to reduce double chin. This FDA-approved drug is only available by prescription. It is biologically identical to a substance called deoxycholic acid that your body produces naturally to emulsify fats. Injected beneath the chin, Kybella destroys unwanted fat.

Dr. Maddox usually recommends a series up to six treatments (which take about 15 minutes each), spaced a month apart, for optimal improvement. Most patients begin to see noticeable results after the second appointment. Kybella is safe, and downtime and side effects are minimal. Once treated fat cells are gone, they are gone for good, so results are long-lasting.
