Double Chin Solution with Kybella
The double chin is a common problem that affects both men and women. The accumulation of fatty tissue under the chin can give the impression of being overweight and add years to one’s appearance. A double chin can be frustrating and also cause a negative impact on an individual’s self-image. Sometimes, dieting and exercise just can’t fix the problem. In the past, expensive surgical procedures were carried out to get rid of that pesky double chin, like liposuction. Recent breakthrough for the treatment of the double chin has emerged – Kybella!
Kybella made by Allergan is a drug that has been approved by the Food and Drug Authority (FDA) for the treatment of the reduction submental fullness, or fat under the chin. Minimizing or removing fat in this region can now be done with this minimally invasive procedure. There are minimal side effects and a high success rate with Kybella treatments.
How does Kybella work?
Kybella basically follows the natural principles of fat dissolution in our own body. The body produces a substance known as deoxycholic acid which is responsible for destruction of the excess adipose tissue in the body. Deoxycholic acid specifically targets the cell membranes of adipose tissue, or fat cells. It penetrates the fat cells causing them to burst. Kybella works along the same lines. Deoxycholic acid in Kybella injections causes the fat cells to burst, thus reducing the fat accumulated in the submental space.
Is Kybella right for me?
Kybella treatments are recommended for those who are displeased with fatty deposits under the chin that give the impression of a double chin. For many people, this false double-chin make them seem overweight and throw off their facial shape. Kybella is for those who wish to eliminate this pocket of fat without having to undergo surgery. Kybella is effective for all skin types and tones. Patients who do not have control of their weight may not be good candidates as future fluctuations in weight can have a negative impact on their results. With Kybella you can achieve a slimmer, more youthful and contoured chin and neck.

More than one treatment may be required if the amount of accumulated fat is high.

Why should I choose Kybella over liposuction?
Kybella is a viable chin sculpting alternative to liposuction. Both treatments are great for reducing fat from underneath but are not the same. Liposuction is a well-known method for fat removal but is a more-demanding process since it is an invasive surgical procedure with a recovery period that can last a few weeks. On the other hand, Kybella treatments only require a series of tiny injections during a session that can take as little as fifteen minutes with no anesthesia required. Kybella treatments are less taxing on the body and patients can quickly resume their daily activities soon after treatment.
