Double Chin Reduction
Kybella is a non-surgical, injectable cosmetic treatment designed to improve the appearance of submental fullness, commonly referred to as a double chin. This cosmetic treatment is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that targets and destroys fat cells under the chin, resulting in a more defined and sculpted jawline.
How does it work?
Kybella uses a naturally occurring molecule called deoxycholic acid to dissolve the fat cells in the treatment area. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps to break down and absorb dietary fat. The active ingredient in Kybella destroys the fat cells, preventing them from storing or accumulating excess fat in the future.
What is the treatment like?
The treatment process is simple and straightforward. Kybella is injected into the submental fat using a fine needle. The number of injections required will depend on the amount of fat under the chin and the desired results. The treatment usually takes between 15 and 20 minutes to complete.
Kybella has been shown to be a safe and effective way to improve the appearance of a double chin. The results of the treatment are visible within a few weeks and continue to improve over the following months. Most patients will require 2 to 4 treatment sessions spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart to achieve their desired results.
The side effects of Kybella are generally mild and temporary. Some common side effects include swelling, redness, and bruising at the injection site. These side effects typically resolve within a few days.
Kybella is a convenient and effective way to improve the appearance of a double chin without the need for surgery or a long recovery period. The results are long-lasting, as the destroyed fat cells cannot regenerate. If you are interested in improving the appearance of your double chin, Kybella may be the right choice for you.
