A double chin can instantly detract from your appearance by distorting your profile. In the past, the only way to address this cosmetic issue was through surgery and a lengthy recovery. Sometimes, this stubborn chin fat just won’t budge no matter how active or disciplined you are. Luckily, we now have access to Kybella®, the newest trend for dissolving your chin fat. This is a revolutionary method consisting of injections that permanently zap away the fat cells under your chin.
The Science Behind Kybella®
FDA-approved Kybella® has an interesting background. It is an injectable serum that works in the same way that your body’s bile acid does to absorb fats. The synthetic substance of Kybella® is called deoxycholic acid, and it has the ability to destroy your chin fat cells by gradually melting them away. The cells are metabolized by the body over the following weeks.
Most patients need a small series of visits spaced about a month apart. During a treatment session, a number of injections are made under the chin. Each session takes about 20 minutes. Those 18 and older with moderate to severe fat beneath the chin are considered candidates for the injections.
Easier than Liposuction
Kybella® injections are fast and simple, and you don’t have to worry about a long list of recovery steps. There is next to no downtime following a treatment session. After Kybella®, you can return to your normal daily activities. As a non-surgical approach, Kybella® stands alone. It is currently the only FDA-approved injectable to treat a double chin. The treatment has only been around for four years now, but the word is good.
A double chin is common, but trying to improve it usually meant a lower facelift or liposuction. Today, non-invasive treatments are in high demand because they’re safe, not complicated and offer the client little to no downtime. Kybella® injections have proven to be excellent at destroying the chin fat cells forever.
