Having a double chin (clinically known as submental fullness) can detract from your appearance and your confidence. Fortunately Kybella™ offers patients a way to eliminate a double chin and reclaim their appearance. Keep reading to learn more.
What causes a double chin?
There are many factors that can contribute to someone having a double chin. Some people have extra fat and skin under the chin because of extra weight, some people have sagging, loose skin under the chin due to aging and gravity, and other people simply have a genetic predisposition for loose skin under the jawline. While a healthy lifestyle and good skin care regimen may help, you can’t always avoid having a double chin.
How does Kybella™ work?
Kybella™ is a non-invasive simple treatment that can eliminate extra fat below your jawline. Kybella™ uses deoxycholic acid to break down and eliminate fat cells below the chin. The treatment is administered through small injections in the target area. Once fat cells are destroyed, the cells can no longer store fat under your chin.
What should you expect from the treatment?
This treatment is quick and only takes about 30 minutes. Side effects are minimal so maost people can return to normal activities immediately after the treatment. Results will vary from patient to patient and some people will need only 2 treatments while others may need six. Treatments are spaced about one month apart and the best results are seen when a patient undergoes multiple treatments.
Kybella™ destroys fat cells, which means that you will have permanent results if you maintain your weight after the treatment.
Should you choose Kybella™?
There are many benefits to choosing Kybella™. The sessions are quick and results are permanent. It is also a non-invasive treatment with minimal recovery time. Alternatives to Kybella™ include a face lift, neck lift, or liposuction. Patients who have more sagging skin or need more dramatic results may need one of these more intense procedures. Your doctor can help you decide which option is best suited to your situation.
