There are millions of people bothered by the appearance of their double chin. This is an area that is next to impossible to target through exercise and is largely unchanged by dieting. For many years, there was not much that could be done to improve this problem. Know, we have the revolutionary double chin treatment option known as Kybella®. This simple and non-surgical treatment can help kill the fat cells underneath the chin, providing dramatic and long-lasting results.
How Does Kybella® Work?
Kybella® is a synthetic version of a naturally occurring molecule known as deoxycholic acid. Made in the intestines, this acid plays a key role in breaking down and then absorbing dietary fat.
When this substance is injected into the subcutaneous, or lower layers, of the double chin, it targets the fat cells there. The cell membranes are damaged, allowing your body to naturally flush out the contents. One of the best parts about this double chin treatment is that the affected cells will not be able to store fat in the future.
What Are Double Chin Treatments Like?
This treatment can be done in the comfort of our office. The first step in the process is always a consultation to create a personalized treatment plan. Multiple injections are made in the predetermined areas of the chin. Before beginning, the injection sites are marked to ensure accuracy and optimal results. The number of injections can vary widely and will be discussed at your consultation. On average, a treatment session of Kybella® lasts for 15-20 minutes.
For many people, one treatment is enough to get satisfactory results. If it is determined that you would benefit for more than one treatment, they will need to be spaced apart. This allows your body to have time to flush out the fat cells.
Results with Kybella® are not instant, but rather develop over the following weeks. The nice thing about gradual results is they appear very natural. No one will need to know you had this treatment done if you do not want them to!
