A double chin isn’t a cosmetic issue that you must accept without a fight. Kybella® is a revolutionary new treatment designed to eradicate extra fatty tissue from underneath the chin as quickly and safely as possible. In just two or three treatment sessions, we can help you burn away extra soft tissue and sculpt the jawline of your dreams.
Understanding Subcutaneous Fat
Burning more calories than we eat each day will eventually strip away fat, but this process is not always as straightforward as we would like it to be. Stubborn body fat generally does not respond to dietary changes and exercise. This includes the layer of subcutaneous fat under one’s chin. Even after losing a significant amount of weight, many people are stuck with extra soft tissue along their neck and jawline. While this condition is not dangerous, it can be considered unsightly.
The Science Behind Kybella®
An individual’s digestive system naturally produces a number of important substances that metabolize and absorb food. This includes an acid known as deoxycholic acid. The primary purpose of deoxycholic acid is to separate fat cells and then break those cells down until they can be absorbed. After years of intensive research, scientists found that deoxycholic acid can also break down fat cells in other parts of the body. Every Kybella® injection contains a high dose of deoxycholic acid to quickly and safely weaken subcutaneous fat so that the immune system naturally flushes it away.
Most patients do not see dramatic results until their second or third Kybella® appointment. However, within a few weeks of the first injections, you should begin to notice changes to the appearance of your chin. This includes a slimmer profile as more of the soft tissue is metabolized and expelled. According to a number of studies, Kybella® might tighten and tone the skin near the injection site as well. With the proper aftercare, the results can last for years at a time.
Is Kybella® Safe?
Kybella® has been approved by the FDA for cosmetic use, so you can be sure that it is safe. The easiest way to ensure optimal results is to carefully follow the instructions given to you by our team. Patients may take over-the-counter medication for any discomfort they are feeling and immediately ice the treatment area when they get home.
