If a full, undefined chin, neck, or jawline is impacting the way you feel about your appearance, Kybella can help. This one-of-a-kind treatment is the only FDA approved and regulated treatment for the stubborn fat deposits lurking under the chin. Our experts at Franklin Skin and Laser in Franklin, TN, are among the elite group of board-certified surgeons certified to perform this treatment in the area. We can help you get rid of unwanted submental fullness to reveal a more youthful, slimmer, and confident you.
What Is Kybella?
A double chin is something many people don’t like about themselves when they consider their reflection in the mirror, but Kybella is the solution. It’s an FDA-approved injectable treatment to remove unwanted chin fat. Living with an undefined jawline and extra fat under the chin is a common problem without a traditional solution. Unlike with many other types of fat, there isn’t a workout routine or specific diet to help remove the bulge.
Gaining weight can add padding to your chin, but plenty of people at a healthy weight also have chin issues. Even if you eat right, exercise, and lead an active lifestyle, you can still fall victim to submental fullness—a.k.a., a double chin. Genetics and the natural process of aging can also contribute to a pillowy profile.
The good news is that you don’t have to suffer through your chin woes. This revolutionary treatment is the first and best option for removing unwelcome facial fat in the area under the chin.
Deoxycholic acid, a substance that the body produces naturally, is the key ingredient to this treatment. When injected, this substance provokes the body to break down and absorb dietary fat. Deoxycholic acid bonds to the chin’s fat cells to break them down and assist the body in removing them.
10 Reasons to Get Kybella
Now that you know that it’s possible to get rid of a double chin, you are probably filled with questions. It’s essential to consider your options and weigh the pros and cons before undergoing any cosmetic treatment or procedure. However, choosing this innovative injectable gives you access to a host of incredible benefits that our patients rave about. Below we look at the top ten reasons to get Kybella.
1. Age-Defying Looks
This treatment keeps ‘em guessing. In the past, extra bulk under the chin was a telltale sign of aging. Chances are your grandparents had it and their grandparents had it, too. Those were in the old days when aging was synonymous with slowing down. In modern times, you’re only as old as you choose to be. A big part of how old we feel is our opinion about our appearance.
Taking action to eliminate your extra chin can work wonders for your anti-aging regimen. Nothing screams youth like a smooth, taut jawline. This treatment is like discovering the fountain of youth; it revitalizes the appearance and sheds years from your profile.
2. Slimmer Appearance
A little fat removal goes a long way. Sometimes it’s not the amount of fat that makes a difference in how thin a person appears. Instead, it’s only the fat location that matters. Unfortunately, a double chin can make your frame look bulkier than it is.
After treatment, our patients divulge that people continuously ask them if they’ve lost weight. The truth is, the amount of fat you’ll lose from this treatment isn’t significant enough to tip the scales, but it will go the distance for how much slimmer your body will look overall.
3. Confidence Boosting
Reclaim your stunning face. Fat accumulated under the chin can affect anyone no matter their level of physical fitness. Often, a double chin can make people feel self-conscious about their appearance. In the winter, it’s easier to conceal your chin with scarves or high-necked shirts, but this isn’t as doable when the warmer temperatures arrive.
If you find yourself avoiding summer fun to hide your profile, this treatment is beyond empowering. You can radically transform your appearance and your self-esteem in as little as a few weeks. You deserve to shine; don’t let stubborn chin fat keep you in the shadows.
4. Non-Surgical Treatment
No knives are required to get the look you want. One of the top reasons our patients choose this treatment over liposuction or other invasive procedures is that it’s such a simple and straightforward treatment. Instead of removing fat in traditional ways, this innovative treatment provides the same incredible results without incisions.
Opting for a fat-removal technique that skips the operating room comes with significant perks that our patients love. You won’t have to prepare for your appointment for months in advance, wrestle with anesthesia, nor will you need to spend the money for a full-scale operation. This fast, safe, and streamlined treatment removes fat without the hassle of surgery.
5. Permanent Results
Targeted fat is gone for good. Fat cells stop reproducing in your teens. These cells can expand, but they can’t replicate once you hit your twenties. The only way to get rid of fat cells after this time is to remove them manually through a cosmetic treatment or procedure. Before treatments like this one were developed, it meant that people were pretty much stuck with what they had after high school.
Fortunately, we live in the tech golden age where we have options. If you don’t like the look of your chin or profile, you can easily get rid of it. All the fat removed during this treatment will never come back. You enjoy permanent fat loss in your chin region after your sessions.
6. No Downtime
This treatment won’t break your stride. Many people want to do something about their double chin but fear that it’ll require a mandatory break from their routine. The non-surgical nature of this treatment makes it the perfect fat-blasting alternative to more complicated procedures.
Because the treatment is so simple, it’s performed in the comfort of our state-of-the-art Franklin facility. You’ll feel ready to resume your life immediately following your appointment, and you won’t need anyone to escort you to or from our offices after treatment.
7. Natural Progression
Your secret is safe with us. One of the ideal reasons to choose this treatment is that it provides the most natural-looking fat elimination results imaginable. After treatment, it takes time for your body to remove the fat cells, which makes the progression into your new look happen more naturally.
No one will know that you received a cosmetic treatment because the results manifest over the weeks that follow. This discrete treatment offers significant advantages over procedures like liposuction that create a sudden, dramatic change. Patients who value their privacy prefer this double chin treatment because it provides the same permanent results as surgery but leaves no evidence.
8. Lighting-Fast Appointments
You can schedule appointments around your day. Anyone can fit a Kybella appointment with us into their schedule, no matter how busy you are. If you have as little as 15 to 20 minutes to spare, you can receive this life-changing treatment. Many patients visit us on a break from work or school. They are free to resume their routine immediately following a session.
Although most sessions last under a half-hour, we’ll discuss your specific treatment times with you at your consultation. Sometimes, the process may take longer; however, the duration pales in comparison to the time a surgical procedure requires.
9. Safe and FDA-Approved
This treatment offers safe and time-tested results. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the U.S. federal agency responsible for regulating health and safety products, approved this treatment for use on double chins in 2015. A product or treatment must undergo rigorous clinical research trials to ensure that it is safe for public use. Only after many successful trials can a product can earn FDA approval.
Since its release onto the market, this treatment has created millions of satisfied patients worldwide. What makes this treatment special is that the substance used in the injection is a replica of a naturally occurring bile acid produced by the liver. Once injected, the body uses its natural process of elimination to get rid of fat. Many patients take comfort in knowing that this treatment is a more natural fat loss option.
10. Most People Are Eligible for Treatment
If you are unhappy with your chin or profile, you could be the ideal candidate for this treatment. Some patients aren’t eligible for other treatments like liposuction because of the risks surgery could present. More patients are eligible for this treatment because it’s low-risk and performed right in our offices. Most healthy adults over the age of 18 qualify.
What’s Treatment Like?
Before treatment, we discuss your objectives and identify the best places to administer treatment. During treatment, we’ll deliver a series of tiny injections into your targeted area. The needles used are very small and do not cause pain and discomfort. The number of injections you’ll need depends on the fullness of the area. We cover all specific information regarding your treatment beforehand during your consultation.
Only a highly trained expert can perform this treatment, and you are in good hands with us. After treatment, the deoxycholic acid gets to work by breaking down fatty tissue in the chin region. You won’t experience scarring or visible signs that you’ve received treatment.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
How many sessions of this treatment you’ll need depends on your body and the expectations you have about your appearance. During your meeting with Dr. Bengelsdorf, he’ll create a custom treatment plan just for you. Although some patients are thrilled with their results after one session, many patients seek subsequent treatments to achieve their desired look.
On average, patients have two or three sessions to reach their cosmetic goals. Please remember that because this treatment uses the natural process of fat elimination, you must wait at least one month before scheduling another appointment. This period allows for the results of your previous session to manifest fully. It can take anywhere from four to six weeks for the targeted fat to leave your body altogether.
How Do I Get Started?
If you are ready to find out how this treatment can transform your profile and life, the first thing to do is to schedule a consultation with us. We’ll examine your submental fullness to determine the best course of action. We can help you achieve the younger, thinner, and more sculpted jawline you want.
