If you have a double chin, you know firsthand how upsetting it can be. It can make you look heavier and older than you actually are. Not to mention, it simply looks unattractive. Popular dermal fillers that treat lines and wrinkles generally aren’t effective at improving the appearance of a double chin. Fortunately, Kybella exists.
Kybella targets these areas of fat by destroying the fat cells within a limited region. We highly suggest this treatment option for those who suffer from the appearance of a double chin and would like to do something about it.
How It Works
Kybella contains deoxycholic acid, a substance produced by bacteria in the intestine, but the acid can also be cultured in a laboratory. The acid is a secondary bile acid that combines with fat cells and literally melts them. The fat is then discarded from the body along with other waste.
Kybella is injected directly into the subcutaneous tissue that lies beneath the skin layers. Immediately, the acid begins to break apart the fat cells. It’s considered a less destructive treatment than other fat-dissolving procedures, and since the fat isn’t being removed via surgery, the individual need not worry about scarring.
Consultation and Treatment
When we consult with you at our office, we observe the area beneath the chin. We want to determine whether the presence of fat beneath the chin is the cause of the double chin. If we determine that Kybella will be effective in improving the appearance of the skin, you can start to look forward to the day when you no longer have to deal with a double chin.
It should be noted that Kybella doesn’t dissolve large areas of fat, so it’s not a suitable treatment for use on other areas of the body. Our clients tend to enjoy positive results that last for a long time.
