It’s completely normal to notice a decrease in the elasticity of our skin as we age. This can be visible in the form of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. However, some areas of skin, such as the stubborn skin and fat located under the chin region can often cause the most concern. In the past, the only way to eliminate fat in this area was through either exercise, or invasive surgery. However, there is now a revolutionary injectable treatment that is successful at vanishing the presence of chin fat with Kybella.
What Is It?
Kybella is a revolutionary and advanced filler that is also FDA-approved and a prescription medicine. This injectable treatment can not only transform your facial appearance, but it’s the only filler effective at actively destroying the fat cells located under the chin. Kybella is the only injectable treatment capable of transforming the appearance of your facial profile.
The treatment requires an injection that is non-invasive, and causes minimal discomfort. Treatment times are rather quick and usually take less than one hour to complete. Once the injection is complete, Kybella works to subtly destroy problem fat cells. What makes Kybella so effective is the included active ingredient, which is a synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body that aids in breaking down and blocking the absorption of dietary fat. For optimal results, multiple treatments are suggested over a period of time.
Who Is a Candidate?
If you are unhappy or self-conscious about the presence of fat under your chin, also known as submental fullness, you may be a candidate. If you feel as though your submental fullness makes you appear older, and you are ready to regain a more youthful looking profile, you can benefit from Kybella. The best way to determine if you are a proper candidate is through a consultation. Reach out to our office here at Van Buren Ross Lemons MD to learn more about this treatment.
