The Miracle Injectable – Kybella

It happens to all of us sooner or later. Gravity and aging work together and stretch the skin below our chins into perfect pockets for the accumulation of fat cells – the dreaded double chin. Fortunately we now have a treatment that doesn’t involve liposuction or surgery to banish that unwanted second chin. This miracle treatment is an injectable called Kybella, and it mimics what your body does naturally to rid itself of unwanted fat cells.

What Is Xeomin? Xeomin is medically referred to as incobotulinumtoxinA. It’s a relatively new cosmetic injection that compares to Botox, Juvederm, and Dysport in that it serves to temporarily correct fine lines and wrinkles on the face. It is made from bacteria that causes botulism, a common form of injection that serves to harness the “toxic” power in order to freeze muscle activity for a temporary period of time.
