Are you troubled by a double chin that diet and exercise will not eliminate? Do you want your face to look firmer and lifted without surgery? If you are struggling with these issues, you may be a good candidate for Kybella®. Kybella® is a nonsurgical treatment that can give you a smooth, youthful jawline.
What is Kybella®?
Kybella® is the only FDA-approved medication that is used to dissolve fat underneath the chin. Known as submental fullness, the condition is not necessarily indicative of a person’s health status or fitness level. Having excess fat in the upper neck area is most commonly caused by genetics.
The active ingredient in Kybella® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in the body. Your body uses it to break down fat deposits. When injected into the fat under the chin, this acid helps to break up the fat and reduce fullness under the chin. It also destroys these cells so they can’t regrow.
What are the benefits of Kybella®?
Benefits of Kybella® include:
- Noticeable improvement almost immediately
- Results may be permanent
- Has little downtime and requires no incisions
- Works where diet and exercise have failed
What is involved in receiving Kybella®?
The Kybella® injection is done using a long, slender needle. You won’t experience any pain during the treatment except maybe at the spot of the incision, like any other shot. You’ll start to see dramatic improvement after just two treatments. Most people achieve the results they want in about six treatments.
