Experience Amazing Results from Kybella
Fat around the chin can make a person look heavier or older than they actually are. In fact, a recent study found that 68% of adults are self-conscious about their double chins. With this treatment, patients have been able to permanently get rid of fat under the chin. They’re left feeling more confident and looking more youthful and slim. Read on to understand just how this treatment works so effectively.
What Is Kybella?
While you may have heard of injectables such as dermal fillers and neuromodulators, Kybella is a highly specialized unique injectable that is used specifically for eliminating fat under the chin, also known as “submental fat”. Using a very fine needle, a small amount of the product is injected into the fat under the chin, where it targets fat cells directly and destroys them. It’s fast-working, non-invasive, and FDA-approved.
How Does This Treatment Work?
This treatment utilizes a compound called deoxycholic acid as its key ingredient. Usually, deoxycholic acid is found in the stomach and breaks down dietary fat when the body is digesting. When used in this treatment, it does the same thing but is used to break down fat specifically around the chin.
When injected into the fat around the chin, the product gets to work targeting fat cells and breaking them down. Cells will either release fluid and shrink to a smaller size or be destroyed altogether. The fluid and destroyed cells gradually leave the body through the metabolic process. Amazingly, destroyed fat cells can’t grow back, which means long-lasting results for patients.
In the end, those who undergo this treatment can expect a sharper, more structured jawline free from stubborn fat.
What Causes Submental Fullness?
There are a number of things that contribute to a double chin. If you’ve developed one as you’ve gotten older, it may be because of age, but if you’ve had one your whole life, it might be genetics. Fluctuating weight can also cause stubborn fat to accumulate under the chin. Because it can’t be specifically targeted with exercise, many people have written off a double chin as being “remediless”. But this treatment is changing the game permanently!
What Will Treatment Be Like?
We’ll ask you to come in for a consultation, where we’ll make sure you’re a good candidate for this treatment. That means looking at your medical history and ensure you’re in a healthy condition, and ensure that the area of fat is the right size to be addressed with this treatment. Then we’ll book you in for your first session!
This treatment is done in-house by one of our trained medical staff. It’s incredibly simple: a very fine needle is used to inject the product into the submental fullness. Most patients report feeling no pain whatsoever. It’s over in roughly fifteen minutes, which means the appointment can slot into even the most hectic schedule. You can even swing by on your lunch break!
Amazingly, there’s no downtime required after the treatment. Patients can immediately carry on with their days, whether that means returning to work or running errands. This is why it’s such a popular alternative to surgical options available, which involves a recovery period. Plus the fact that no anesthetic is needed means patients can drive themselves to and from the appointment.
How Many Sessions Will I Need to Attend?
Multiple sessions are needed to achieve optimal results, but exactly how many that is will depend on the individual and the density and size of their double chin. Some patients start to see results after as little as two treatments, while others notice significant changes after about four sessions. We generally recommend six sessions to help patients reach their cosmetic goals.
How Long Will It Take to See Results?
Following treatment, those destroyed fat cells and released fluids leave the body via natural processes. This happens gradually, and the exact amount of time it takes depends on the patient and their body. Many people notice initial results after about two or three weeks, and these become more pronounced after several sessions.
Who Is an Ideal Candidate for Treatment?
If you’re over the age of 18 and looking to eliminate your double chin, this treatment may be right for you. It’s perfect for those who aren’t looking to lose weight but are interested in the cosmetic benefits of removing their double chin. If during your consultation, we decide that this treatment isn’t right for you, we can offer a range of alternatives that better suit your lifestyle and condition.
