Fat accumulation below the chin causes submental fat, or what is commonly known as a double chin. KYBELLA® is a verified solution for melting the fat below the chin to give you a smooth appearance without any surgical scars. The treatment achieves fat reduction through the injection of deoxycholic acid in the affected area. You can choose to undergo surgery to correct a double chin, but at Mariposa Aesthetics & Laser Center we offer the minimally-invasive KYBELLA® to treat any fat accumulation under the chin.
How Does KYBELLA® Work?
This treatment involves a number of injections using deoxycholic acid, which is very effective in targeting fat cells. This solution increases the body’s ability to absorb fat because it destroys fat cells found in the chin area.
• The treatment is non-surgical — KYBELLA® is an injectable treatment that does not involve any incisions. This means that you are less likely to suffer scars that are usually common in operated skin. Also, you do not need to spend time at home because you can go back to your normal life immediately after the injection.
• Convenient and time-saving — Unlike other surgical procedures, KYBELLA® only takes a few minutes to get done, approximately 15-20 minutes. You can make an appointment with our office to have the injections done virtually any day because it does not take long.
• Completely safe — KYBELLA® has been approved by the FDA as a perfect alternative to surgical procedures. When done by a proven medical personnel, this is a safe and risk-free treatment.
• Highly effective — Most patients have recorded positive results after undergoing KYBELLA® treatment. The success rate is high, and there are no serious side effects.
What Should Patients Expect?
Since this is a non-surgical procedure, there are no complicated preparations needed. All you need to do is schedule a consultation with our qualified medical doctors who will explain the treatment.
