When it comes to how we look, there are some things within our control and some things we can’t seem to change. Having submental fullness, or a double chin, is something that is nearly impossible to change using diet or exercise. That is where Kybella® comes in. This revolutionary treatment can help you permanently address the issue of excess fat underneath the chin, redefining your jawline and leaving you looking younger.
What Is Kybella®?
Kybella® works by permanently destroying the fat cells in the target areas. This is accomplished using synthetic deoxycholic acid, which mimics a substance naturally produced in the intestines to break down and absorb food. When the fat cell is destroyed, it will no longer be able to hold onto its contents. The best part is it will never be able to store fat again. Your body cannot repair these fat cells or generate new ones, meaning you can have permanent results with a healthy lifestyle.
The Kybella® Treatment Process
The first step is to come in for a consultation where you can discuss your goals with Dr. Steven Dayan. Kybella® is then given through a series of injections into specific locations. The number of injections, as well as the number of treatment sessions, is something that is determined at your consultation. The maximum number of sessions any one person can have is six. Appointments should be spaced out at least one month to allow the body time to flush out the fat. This is a non-surgical treatment that results in little to no downtime.
Fat is removed in a slow but steady process as your body works to flush out fat. This means you get gradual and natural-looking results. It generally takes a few weeks or months to see the full extent of your improvements.
