Fatty tissue just under the chin often makes patients look much older than they really are. While you might be able to delay this cosmetic issue by staying at a healthy weight, even a patient who has a very low BMI can develop a double chin. For patients who are unhappy with their appearance because of this extra layer of fat, Kybella® could be the perfect treatment option.
Avoid Invasive Procedures
Modern cosmetic procedures can help patients achieve their cosmetic goals, but surgery isn’t right for everyone. Even common treatments such as neck lifts often take weeks to recover from, and there is always the risk of scarring. With Kybella® injections, many of these disadvantages have become a thing of the past. Over the course of just a few weeks, patients can eradicate their double chin with absolutely no incisions or scars.
Unlike many other injectables, Kybella® is designed to attack and weaken localized body fat. The primary ingredient is a unique substance known as deoxycholic acid. Your body naturally produces this acid to break down fatty foods in your intestines and withdraw the nutrients. After years of research, doctors found that a concentrated dose of deoxycholic acid could be used to melt localized body fat. While Kybella® is currently only approved to be used just below the chin, it is an excellent alternative to a neck lift and liposuction.
The Ideal Candidate
Kybella® is carefully injected into small pockets of fat just below the chin to create a firm and toned neckline. It is a great option for healthy adults who are not quite ready for cosmetic surgery. If you are considering Kybella®, then our team would be glad to meet with you to discuss all the details of this unique treatment.
The Treatment Process
Kybella® generally requires a series of treatment sessions, and the results do not happen overnight. During your first appointment, our team can give you more information regarding what to expect during and after the injections. The appointments typically only take about 20 to 30 minutes to complete.
Following Your Treatment Sessions
Instead of immediately destroying the fat cells, Kybella® slowly weakens them so that your body can expel them naturally. Just like any other affected soft tissue, your immune system eventually attacks and destroys the fat entirely in the weeks following your procedure.
