Kybella: An Injection That May Fix Your Double Chin
Does your double chin make you self-conscious or embarrassed? You are not alone. Many people suffer from a stubborn bulge of fat that settles just below the chin. Unfortunately, this fat can persist even when diet and exercise are up to par. But do you have to undergo plastic surgery to get rid of your second chin? Not necessarily.
Kybella is an injectable product that was approved by the FDA in 2015. It serves as a revolutionary solution to target unwanted under chin (submental) fat, otherwise known as the dreaded “double chin.” Kybella is administered just like a facial filler or Botox, with unique components that are able to permanently destroy fat cells where injected. It may take multiple treatments for Kybella to contour your chin and jaw area, but the process is convenient, affordable and minimally-invasive compared to a neck lift or liposuction.
Here’s some leading reasons why Kybella has become a preferred solution for double chin fat:
A Slimmer and Younger-Looking Profile
The pocket of submental fat that often develops under the chin can be a result of genetics, aging or excess weight. Regardless of the reason it is there, if it doesn’t resolve with proper diet and exercise, you may be an ideal candidate for Kybella injections. Kybella reduces unwanted fullness underneath the chin to create a slimmer, youthful and more confident profile.
Innovative Cosmetic Technology
Kybella’s main ingredient is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, which is what our body naturally produces to break down and absorb fat. When injected into submental fat, Kybella instantly starts targeting and destroying fat cells. In doing so, these cells are also disabled from storing fat in the future.
Affordable, Convenient Solution
Most patients see a visible reduction in their double chin within a few months of beginning Kybella injections. Each in-office treatment session lasts just 15 to 20 minutes, making it the perfect aesthetic procedure to squeeze in during your lunch break. When compared to plastic surgery for a double chin, Kybella is also very affordable!
No Surgery Risk
While a neck lift or liposuction can produce excellent results, these procedures come with associated risks. Since Kybella doesn’t involve surgery, it eliminates the concern and/or risk of anesthesia, infection, pain, cost and lengthy downtime. Compared to surgery, Kybella requires a very minimal sacrifice to bring a drastic improvement to your double chin appearance.
