You can work out and eat right and still find yourself with submental fullness, more commonly called a double chin. This area of the body is extremely difficult to target using traditional methods. In the past, surgery was the only option. Now, there is a fat-dissolving, non-surgical method for getting rid of a double chin. It goes by the name of Kybella®, and it can be the double chin treatment option you have been waiting for.
How Does Kybella® Work?
A double chin, or submental fullness, can be treated by eliminating some of the fat in the area. Kybella® attacks the fat cells, permanently damaging them to the point that they cannot store fat. What is great about this is the body will never try to repair or replace these destroyed fat cells. Once you have reached your optimal results, you will never need follow-up treatments.
Kybella® is given through a series of injections. How many injections depends on the amount of fullness you are trying to get rid of. For some people, more than one double chin treatment is required in order to reach their ideal results. Each treatment session may take anywhere from 15 to 20 minutes.
What are the Benefits of Kybella®?
The biggest benefit of Kybella® is that it is a non-surgical treatment option to manage this problem. It results in no downtime afterward. People also love the fact that their results are gradual, making it impossible to tell that they had a cosmetic procedure done.
Who is a Good Candidate for Kybella®?
This treatment is approved by the Food and Drug Administration for use in the submental area (underneath the chin). Anyone who is in good general health and bothered by the appearance of a double chin could be considered a good candidate for Kybella®. People who may not be considered good candidates are those who are planning a surgery near the area or who have an infection or other medical condition that might affect the area. The best way to determine your eligibility is to speak with one of our qualified professionals.
