You may be a perfectly fit person and still have a double chin. Genetics, perhaps, was unkind to you in this aspect. No matter what you seem to do, there is always a bit of added volume resting just under your chin. For some, it’s simply the fact that they lost a lot of weight and now they have excess skin just under their chin. For others, it may simply be how their head and neck were formed. You likely don’t want to have surgery performed on your chin. Luckily, there is a solution that doesn’t require surgery and is still just as effective. It’s known as KYBELLA®. This article will discuss KYBELLA®, how it works, and how it can help you.
What Is KYBELLA®?
KYBELLA® is an injectable treatment that essentially targets the fat cells beneath the chin and destroys them. It is the only FDA-approved injection treatment to date. The secret of KYBELLA® is that it actually uses a molecule that already exists in the body and makes it more potent. Deoxycholic acid is a molecule in the body that essentially breaks down and absorbs the fat you receive in your diet. KYBELLA® takes this deoxycholic acid and injects it into the area beneath your chin.
As such, those fat cells that exist there are wiped out. This results in the area being unable to store fat. Without storing fat, the area can also then be unable to accumulate fat. This means that the heavy area beneath your chin will go away. Fat can no longer collect there and it can make that double chin disappear.
Depending on the amount of fat that exists beneath your chin, you may need a few treatments, but once those fat cells are killed off, you likely won’t ever have to receive treatment for a double chin again. This sort of powerful result is exactly why men and women are seeking KYBELLA® treatment.
What To Expect
Initially, you’ll speak with our doctor about the aesthetic goals that you desire with your chin. They’ll inspect the area and determine how many injections you’ll need and where. Once the plan has been formed, you’ll be taken into the procedure room. During each treatment session, you’ll receive a few injections. As mentioned before, depending on how much fat needs to be removed, it may take a few sessions before you are able to reach your aesthetic goals.
