Are you bothered by the appearance of a double chin? You are not alone. Many Americans wish they could do about their submental fullness, which is the more technical term for a double chin. Diet and exercise struggle to target this area of the body. Luckily, there is an innovative way to tackle this issue. It is known as Kybella® and it is becoming an increasingly popular treatment choice for those wanting to say goodbye to their double chin once and for all.
What Makes Kybella® Work?
The key to the effectiveness of Kybella® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. The natural form of this acid is something that your body produces on its own. It is an important component in the breakdown, as well as the absorption, of fat. Using a synthetic version of this acid in strategic places allows us to sculpt your facial profile. Kybella® injections destroy fat cells in the targeted area, preventing them from storing fat in the future. Since your body stopped creating new fat cells sometime when you were a teenager, you can have incredibly long-lasting results with this treatment.
Once the fat cells have been destroyed, your body will begin to naturally flush them out. This reduces the amount of fullness underneath your chin. Exactly how many injections you will need and how many sessions it will take is something that can be established at a consultation. Creating a personalized treatment plan is always the first step for Kybella®.
Why Choose Kybella®?
This effective treatment method has many benefits. Some of the highlights include:
- It is safe and approved by the FDA.
- Treatments are quick and efficient.
- The fat cells are permanently destroyed.
- There is no surgery required to achieve great results.
- Due to the way fat cells are flushed out, results are gradual and natural-looking.
- There is little downtime associated with this treatment.
