KYBELLA® in Santa Rosa is a nonsurgical treatment used to destroy fat cells in the area underneath the chin. So far it is the only injectable treatment approved for use by the FDA, and people are understandably curious. Here are five of the most frequently asked questions about what it is and how it works.
1. What Is KYBELLA® in Santa Rosa?
Its active ingredient is deoxycholic acid, a molecule that occurs naturally in the body and helps break down and absorb dietary fat. It is injected into specific spots underneath the chin to target fat cells that have accumulated there.
2. How Does it Work?
Once injected by Dr. Gregory Chernoff, this treatment kills and destroys fat cells that have accumulated and expanded on your chin. After the cells are destroyed, your body will naturally absorb them.
3. How Many Treatments Will I Need?
On average, it takes between two to four treatments (spaced between six and eight weeks apart) to achieve the desired results. For some people, it may take up to six treatments. After an initial consultation, Dr. Chernoff will be able to recommend a more specific treatment plan for you.
4. How Long Do the Results Last?
Adults do not generate new fat cells, so once the fat cells are destroyed, they are absorbed through the body’s normal processes and do not return. However, the fat cells that survive have the ability to expand. Achieving and remaining at a healthy weight should prevent the expansion of the remaining fat cells and either maintain or improve on results you see after undergoing treatment.
5. What Is the Difference Between KYBELLA® and Liposuction?
While liposuction is a procedure that only requires 1-2 treatments, it involves the added risks that come with surgery as well as a period of downtime after each procedure. KYBELLA® in Santa Rosa requires more treatments, but it is an injection that can be administered in-office. Overall, it is a less invasive alternative to treat submental fat.
