Targeting a double chin through diet and exercise alone is often ineffective. This area of the body tends to hang on to fat. In the past, an extensive surgery was the only way to address submental fullness. Luckily, there is now the non-surgical double chin treatment option known as Kybella®. This is an FDA-cleared option that has proven effective at eliminating submental fullness, which is the technical term for a double chin. This simple and effective treatment results in no downtime.
How Does Kybella® Work?
Kybella® utilizes synthetic deoxycholic acid. The natural acid is produced by the intestines and used to help break down dietary fat. When injected into the targeted areas, it will actually destroy the fat cells. The content of the cells will be naturally flushed out by the body and the fat cells will be unable to store fat in the future. Since your body no longer produces new fat cells once it reaches adulthood, your results with this double chin treatment can be long-lasting or even permanent. It is one of the very few treatments out there that does not require follow-up sessions once the desired results are reached.
Results do not appear instantly but develop in the weeks and months following your treatment. Even though the results are not immediate as they may be with other double chin treatment options, these results are designed to last. Your body will continue to flush out any remaining fat from the targeted cells for multiple months after your treatment. This is great because it makes your results gradual and natural in appearance.
The first step in the double chin treatment process is always having a consultation so that a personalized plan can be crafted. At this time, the number of sessions and injections you will need can be discussed. While some people find they are satisfied with their results after a single Kybella® treatment, others benefit from two or three. Treatment sessions must be spaced apart.
Who Is an Ideal Candidate for Kybella®?
This treatment has been cleared by the FDA to treat submental fullness in adults who qualify. It is ideal for anyone who is bothered by the appearance of a double chin. Those who would like dramatic results without the expense and downtime associated with surgery should give this treatment serious consideration.
