If you’re looking for a safe, non-surgical and non-invasive procedure to eliminate your double chin, Kybella™ could be the right treatment for you. Kybella™ is an injectable solution that is designed to eliminate moderate to severe fat stores at the upper neck and under-chin areas. This FDA-approved medicine contains a molecule that is naturally-occurring and capable of dissolving unwanted fat. Best of all, when used correctly, Kybella™ will only impact the targeted fat cells, leaving all surrounding cells both intact and healthy.
It is Not Possible to Spot Reduce Fat Through Diet and Exercise
Fat stores at the upper neck or beneath the chin are common problems. Unfortunately, although diet and exercise are both highly effective for producing weight loss, neither or these activities is capable of spot reducing fat. When people lose weight by moderating calories and working out, the resulting fat loss is uniform, and thus, all parts of the body become uniformly smaller, and there are no significant changes in overall physical proportions.
If fat stores under the chin or at the top of the neck are disproportionate, these will remain disproportionate even after significant weight loss has occurred. Kybella™ is capable of producing targeted fat loss in the under-chin area and can sculpt and redefine the neck for a slimmer and more appealing look overall. It is, therefore, ideal for people who have achieved their goal weights and are still struggling with this common trouble zone.
Create an Attractive and Youthful-Looking Profile with No Down Time
There is absolute no cutting performed during a Kybella™ treatment. Thus, there is no downtime and minimal risk associated with this procedure. The Kybella™ molecule that dissolves fat is chemically identical to a molecule that the human body naturally produces called deoxycholic acid. This molecule destroys fat cells and is a simple, hassle-free alternative to liposuction. Once targeted fat cells are destroyed by Kybella™, these cells will no longer be able to accumulate fat or store it. Depending upon the severity of their under-chin fat stores and their cosmetic goals, most people will need between two and three treatments. Kybella™ treatments are often spaced one month apart for optimal effectiveness.
What to Expect After a Kybella™ Injection
Most people will experience some bruising around the injection site just several hours after their Kybella treatments have been performed. These developments are entirely normal and will usually abate on their own. Given that this is a non-surgical procedure, it is safe to return to your normal activities as soon as you feel comfortable doing so. Noticeable improvements can be seen within one week of the first Kybella™ treatment, with progressive improvements appearing as additional Kybella™ injections are performed.
