Extra fat underneath the chin, otherwise known as submental fullness or a double chin, can take away from your self-esteem. Kybella® is a highly effective treatment for eliminating this fat for good and reshaping your facial profile. Safe and FDA-approved, this treatment is completely non-surgical and results in zero downtime.
How Does Kybella® Work?
Your body naturally makes a bile acid called deoxycholic acid. A synthetic form of this is the main ingredient in Kybella® injections. When strategically injected into the excess fat underneath the skin, it targets and destroys fat cells. This leaves them unable to store fat any longer. They will never be replaced or repaired, meaning you do not need to worry about the extra chin returning.
It may take more than one session of Kybella® to get you to your aesthetic goals. A minimum of one month must pass in between appointments to allow your body time to flush out fat. The maximum number of treatments you can receive is six. Most people find that two to four treatments are enough to help them reach their goals.
Why Choose Kybella®?
Kybella® is a very unique treatment. There are many reasons to consider it if you are bothered by submental fullness, including:
- It is safe and effective
- The process is completely non-surgical
- Results appear gradually and are very natural
- Once optimum results are achieved, maintenance treatments are not required
- There is no special preparation required or downtime afterward
This treatment is FDA-approved for use in adults 18 and older. It is a great option for those out there who are seeking dramatic results but do not want to have surgery. Kybella® may not be the right choice for everyone. We will discuss your medical history and goals at your initial appointment.
