If you are no longer happy with your appearance because you have developed a double chin, then you might want to take a closer look at the popular injectable known as Kybella®. This FDA-approved product was specifically designed to eradicate unwanted tissue just below the skin, and it could help you contour your jawline in a matter of weeks. Once you have sculpted your ideal silhouette, you should be able to maintain those results for years with quick and easy follow-up appointments. When it comes to long-term double chin treatments, very few options are as effective as Kybella® injections.
Where Did My Double Chin Come From?
Unlike many other cosmetic issues, a double chin is usually the result of an individual’s genetics. Staying at a healthy weight will reduce your risk of developing a double chin, but you might not be able to avoid this problem forever. Even a patient who stays within a healthy weight range for decades could struggle with a double chin at some point. While a double chin isn’t necessarily a dangerous health complication, it will make you look much older and heavier than you really are. That is one of the reasons why many patients spend huge sums of money on over-the-counter double chin creams and ointments.
Unfortunately, most of those products aren’t going to address the root causes of your double chin. While certain creams might moisturize or tighten the outer layers of your skin, they aren’t going to eliminate the underlying fat. To minimize the fat cells, you will need to consider professional treatments such as Kybella® injections.
The Science Behind Kybella®
Many patients are surprised to hear that the active ingredient inside Kybella® is a substance that is naturally found in the body. In order to break down some of the fatty foods that you eat, your intestines produce a vital compound known as deoxycholic acid. After countless studies, doctors discovered that they could spot treat fatty tissue with concentrated doses of synthetic deoxycholic acid. When Kybella® is injected into the skin, that acid weakens the fatty tissue over the course of a few weeks. Once the cells have been broken apart, they can be metabolized and expelled through the lymphatic system.
Your Kybella® Appointments
Our Kybella® treatments only take a few minutes to complete, and most of our patients are able to resume all normal activities following their appointments. After the injections have been carried out, you can head home and relax or return back to work. On average, our patients need at least three separate treatments, and those appointments must be scheduled four to six weeks apart.
