Having what’s commonly known as a “double chin” is an issue many of us face. You may think there’s nothing that can be done about it unless you’re willing to undergo extensive surgery. Exercise won’t make it go away. Nor will changing your diet. Fortunately, there’s a non-surgical treatment approved by the FDA to contour and reduce the look of a double chin. It’s called KYBELLA®.
Double chin, known in medical circles as “submental fullness”, can be easily reduced with KYBELLA®. The active ingredient in this injectable is deoxycholic acid, a substance that is naturally found in our bodies and works to break down fat cells. It also stops them from being able to store fat later. When injected into the targeted area, this treatment eliminates fat and tightens skin. You’ll be left with a sleeker looking silhouette.
Candidates for KYBELLA®
Both men and women can benefit from KYBELLA®. Anyone with excess skin beneath the chin and around the neck area should consider treatment. If you don’t want to commit to surgical options, this treatment options may appeal to you. A more contoured neckline is possible with a quick, convenient and noninvasive treatment. Result look natural. Anyone over the age of 18 and who is in good health overall can talk to their practitioner about this treatment.
What to Expect
KYBELLA® is injected into the treatment area and immediately begins the process of destroying fat cells. The cells are then gradually flushed away through your own body’s lymphatic system. Each session typically takes about 20 minutes to complete. The number of sessions you’ll need depends upon your specific condition. Our experts will provide you with a treatment plan, usually supplied at your consultation.
After Your Session
Because this treatment is non-surgical, you can expect to return to your regular daily activities immediately. It is possible to experience some minor swelling. This will be temporary, usually lasting only about a week. You may notice slight results immediately. Ordinarily, multiple sessions are required. Because fat is eliminated naturally and gradually over time, full results will probably not be seen for at least a month after your treatment, possibly six weeks. However, KYBELLA® is long-lasting.
