Many people struggle with excess fat under their chin. It can make you see seem older and heavier than you are. Due to this, many people struggle with their self-esteem. If you are one of the many people who have tried eating well and exercising but have had no luck getting rid of your double-chin, you may want to consider Kybella. These injections are a wonderful, non-surgical option for people ready to say goodbye to excess fat under the chin.
What is “Submental Fullness?”
When discussing Kybella treatments, the term submental fullness will likely be used. It is the more technical term for having a double chin. It is the result of excess fat gathering in that area. This happens to people as they age or gain weight. It can also be the result of genetics, which is why it is often so difficult to remove through traditional methods.
What is the Process for Kybella Treatment?
Doctors who have been specially trained for Kybella treatments can administer them right in their office. These treatments are made up of multiple small injections in the chin. Before starting, the doctor will use a marker to map out where they will happen. The number of injections can range from 20 to 50. Treatments are usually fairly quick and downtime is minimal. Our medical team will help you determine how much fat you have under your chin and how much you should lose to achieve your desired results.
How Does Kybella Work?
Deoxycholic acid is a molecule that your body makes naturally. In the body, this acid helps to break down and absorb dietary fat. Kybella is a form of synthetic deoxycholic acid that is injected into the chin. It attacks the fat cells, giving you a visible reduction in fat. The best part is, these cells are destroyed and cannot store fat in the future. This is a treatment that can give you results for a lifetime.
Who is Kybella Right For?
It is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment for moderate to severe excess fat underneath the chin. It has not been approved for use in children under 18 years old. Anyone who is bothered by the appearance of their profile and double chin can benefit from Kybella. This is especially true for people who do not want to undergo surgery.
