One of the most common complaints many people have about their profile is the presence of a double chin. A bit of extra chin fat is surprisingly common regardless of size or weight, and often difficult to get rid of. In the past, you would’ve needed to undergo liposuction to remove a stubborn double chin. However, the idea of undergoing a surgical procedure discouraged many people.
The good news is that ridding yourself of a stubborn double chin is not nearly as complicated as it used to be. KybellaⓇ, a pioneering noninvasive treatment used to remove fat beneath the chin, can help make your double chin disappear giving you a slimmer, younger-looking profile.
What Is Kybella?
Kybella is an innovative treatment made of deoxycholic acid that’s injected into the submental (chin) area to reduce fat. Deoxycholic acid occurs naturally in our bodies to help break down and absorb fat, and Kybella mimics the process.
Often, people who maintain a healthy lifestyle have no problem toning other areas of their bodies, but that stubborn, fatty area beneath the chin refuses to budge. So if you’ve already tried dieting to rid yourself of an unflattering double chin, Kybella is definitely worth a look.
Kybella is fast becoming one of the most popular procedures for slimming a double chin. According to the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, from 2012-2017 the use of Kybella to reduce fat in the chin area tripled. With Kybella, you can finally achieve the profile you deserve.
How Kybella works
Once you’ve decided that treatment with Kybella is something you’d like to pursue, one of our physicians examines your chin and neck area to determine if you’re a good candidate. You’ll then work together to develop a treatment plan.
Kybella typically involves undergoing a series of injections using small needles. Once injected beneath the skin, Kybella gets busy breaking down stubborn fat in your chin area. It works by destroying the membranes of fat cells, making them unable to store fat any longer. Then your body’s natural processes take over to flush out the fat cells as waste. The fat-elimination process is gradual, taking place over the course of 4-6 weeks.
Top benefits of Kybella
Besides getting rid of that unsightly double chin, Kybella offers a number of benefits:
- It’s been proven to work in clinical trials
- No invasive surgery or anesthesia is required
- Treatments are fast and efficient
- The fat cells are destroyed for good
Is Kybella safe?
Kybella’s synthetic, injectable form of deoxycholic acid works in the same manner as the deoxycholic acid naturally produced by your own body. It’s the only safe, injectable treatment currently approved by the FDA to eliminate chin fat. In a recent clinical trial, 80% percent of patients showed marked reduction in chin fat 12 weeks after their last treatment.
Kybella is one of the safest, most effective ways to get rid of a double chin.
