Of all the cosmetic things that bother both men and women, few are as common as the dreaded double chin. A good many adults are bothered by submental fullness, a technical term for a double chin. Not so long ago, the only real option to treat this problem was surgery. After all, there are not many exercises out there that target the chin. Now, we have the revolutionary double chin treatment known as Kybella®. It is a non-surgical method of getting rid of excess fat underneath the chin for good.
How Does Kybella® Work?
Kybella® is such an effective double chin treatment because it permanently destroys fat cells underneath the chin, leaving them unable to hang on to their contents. Once this has happened, the body steps in and naturally flushes out the fat. Your body will never try to replace or repair the destroyed fat cells, meaning Kybella® can get rid of a double chin for good.
Kybella® is a synthetic form of something that is naturally produced in the body. It is called deoxycholic acid, and the body makes it in the intestines in order to break down dietary fat. When injected into the chin, it attacks the cells, permanently damaging them. During treatment, multiple injections are made underneath the chin.
Getting Results with Kybella®
The first step in the process is to come in for a consultation. It may be determined that you will need more than one treatment in order to reach your peak results. Appointments will need to be spaced at least one month apart in order to give your body time to flush out the fat that has been released.
Who is Kybella® Right For?
This safe and effective treatment for a double chin is approved by the Food and Drug Administration for adults seeking to reduce their submental fat. Ultimately, if you are bothered by submental fullness and would like to avoid surgery, Kybella® may be the perfect choice for you. It is not yet clear if this double chin treatment can pass to an unborn child or into a mother’s milk. As a result, it is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
