Did you ever take a selfie and then cringe when you looked at it only to see that you have a double chin showing? Taking selfies over and over to hide a double chin is both discouraging and annoying. If you are seeing a double chin even though you have a healthy diet and exercise plan, then you are not alone. 67% of individuals are bothered by excess fat under the chin.
Wouldn’t you love to trade that double chin and gain your confidence back? You can get rid of that overly full chin…without surgery… with our awesome Kybella® treatments.
What Is Kybella®?
Kybella® is an FDA approved injectable treatment that is designed to reduce the number of fat cells under your chin and give your face and jawline a sleeker look. The active ingredient in Kybella® is a substance called deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid occurs naturally in the body and aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat.
When Kybella® is injected into the fat beneath the chin, it destroys the fat cells. Once these fat cells are destroyed, they will no longer be able to store or accumulate fat. Each of the fat cells that are destroyed are then flushed out of the body through the body’s own metabolic process. This results in a noticeable reduction in the fullness under the chin.
What Is a Kybella® Treatment Like?
A Kybella® treatment takes roughly 30 minutes to perform. The first step is to cleanse the area in preparation for the treatment. The Kybella® is then carefully injected and patients may experience a slight warming sensation during this process. Kybella® begins working right away, but results are usually seen in 3 to 4 weeks after your session.
Some patients will need more than one treatment to achieve their goal look. Up to six treatments can be administered at one-month intervals, but your skin care professional will create an individualized plan for you based on your specific needs and goals. This treatment is non-invasive and there is no downtime involved. Patients can return to their normal daily routines immediately after the injections are completed.
