Kybella® is a non-invasive treatment that takes just minutes to carry out. It can produce lifelong results with the proper handling and aftercare. If you are sick and tired of your double chin, then Kybella® may be the perfect product for you.
Eradicating Stubborn Pockets of Fat
A recent study carried out at UCLA’s David Geffen School of Medicine found that over 80 percent of patients with extra fat under their chin are worried about their appearance due to this cosmetic issue. Even patients who stay at a healthy weight can still accumulate fat under their chin simply because of their genetics.
In some cases, an individual will need to maintain a strict diet for years at a time before their body finally begins to metabolize the fat below their chin. Luckily, Kybella® injections provide patients with the ability to quickly and safely meet their cosmetic goals by permanently eradicating subcutaneous fat.
A Look at Deoxycholic Acid
Deoxycholic acid is a substance that is naturally produced in our intestines to metabolize food. In the early 1990s, researchers found that this acid can affect fat cells when it came into direct contact with them. It accomplishes this by weakening the cell walls until our bodies are ready to metabolize them. Kybella® is currently the only FDA-approved treatment for getting rid of fat just below the chin. This treatment has not been approved for use on any other area of the body.
Am I a Candidate for Kybella®?
Determining if Kybella® is right for you will be something that you and our specialist must discuss during your initial appointment. As a general rule, this treatment is an excellent option for adult patients who are unhappy with their appearance due to a double chin. During your initial screening, you should inform our expert of any medical conditions that could affect your injections.
Your Kybella® Appointment
The average Kybella® treatment session can be carried out in just 30 minutes, and patients need to do absolutely nothing to prepare. Your injection specialist will begin by cleaning the skin. The injections will then be made across the chin.
Patients who have larger pockets of fat might require multiple treatments to achieve the best results. Once the fat cells have been weakened, however, they will be removed for good. This means that you will be able to enjoy the amazing results of Kybella® for the rest of your life as long as you stick to a healthy diet and exercise program.
