Are you one of the millions of Americans who has tried diet and exercise but still can’t get rid of a stubborn double chin? It may be frustrating, but luckily there are a number of options out there for people looking for non-invasive fat reduction treatments. If you are on the lookout for a treatment that can melt away a double chin, a Kybella treatment at Spa In The City in Dallas, TX might be the right choice for you. In this article, we’ll take a look at what Kybella is, how it works, and whether it’s the solution in the battle against double chins.
What Is Kybella?
Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that’s used for body contouring. It’s safe and proven to be effective at melting away stubborn fat deposits, such as a double chin, that don’t respond to diet and exercise. It neutralizes fat cells where they live, giving you results that all the running, dieting, and carb-cutting you can handle won’t: the profile you’ve always wanted.
How Does It Work?
Double chins are difficult to get rid of because of the nature of fat cells. Once a person reaches adulthood, the number of fat cells in their body remains fairly steady. The cells themselves will shrink or swell as they store more or less fat, but they’re always there. That makes it tough to entirely get rid of a double chin through traditional diet and exercise: those cells can only shrink so much.
Kybella’s active ingredient is a synthesized form of deoxycholic acid. This is a compound that occurs naturally in the body, where it is used to absorb fat. Once it’s injected through a very fine needle, it will go to work dismantling the fat cells that create a double chin. It’s not instant, but over time this injection will kill the fat cells themselves, the body will flush them out, and you will be left with the profile you want. The injections will also continue to prevent further fatty tissue from forming in that spot, so unlike some other aesthetic treatments like Botox, Kybella is permanent.
What Is the Treatment Like?
This treatment is extremely quick. So quick, in fact, that you can have it done over your lunch break and still have time to grab a bite to eat before heading back to the office. Prior to the treatment, our practitioner will mark the injection sites on your chin with a marker. Once that’s done, they will perform several injections under the chin over the course of fifteen or twenty minutes. Because the treatment is non-invasive, once the injections are done you’ll be able to stroll out of the office and get back to your normal day.
How Long Will It Take to See Results?
While the length of time it takes to see final results from a treatment will vary from person to person, generally results are noticeable within four to six weeks. Those results will continue to develop for a few weeks after first becoming noticeable thanks to the injection’s compounds continuing to do away with fat cells.
While some people may need only one treatment, others will need more than one depending on the results they want to achieve. It’s possible to receive up to six treatments spaced at least one month apart each.
Is This Treatment Right for Me?
You might be a great candidate for a Kybella treatment if:
You Are In Good Shape
It’s important to note that this is not a weight-loss treatment. If you are looking to lose fat for medical reasons, a healthy diet and regular exercise will do the trick. This treatment is aesthetic nature, meaning it is not a treatment for obesity or other weight problems.
Your Skin Has Good Elasticity
The best candidates for this treatment have firm skin with a layer of fat beneath their chin that can they can between their fingers. Skin with good elasticity will mold and shape around the new contours of the chin as the fat is flushed away. Candidates with looser skin that lacks elasticity may see better results with a surgical procedure.
You Don’t Want to Undergo Surgery
Plastic surgery is invasive and has a recovery period, so it’s understandable that many people have ruled it out and settled on living with a double chin. With this treatment though, it’s possible to see great results without ever going under the knife. If you know that surgery isn’t right for you but are still looking for ways to rid yourself of a double chin, this is the perfect option for you.
You Are Unhappy With Your Appearance
How people perceive themselves can have a profound effect on their happiness over time. If you are unhappy with your appearance and want to do something about it, this treatment might be what you have been looking for. In fact, as many as 70% of people who undergo this treatment report not only great results, but also a noted improvement in their happiness.
