For many years, if you had submental fullness, also known as a double chin, there was not much that could be done about it. Surgery was an option, but many people in Boston would like to avoid such dramatic measures. Luckily, we now have the option of Kybella®, a non-surgical double chin treatment that may be the answer for you!
How Does Kybella® Work?
Kybella® uses a synthetic version of a natural body acid. It is called deoxycholic acid. When injected strategically into the chin, it goes to work destroying unwanted fat cells. Injections are made in a precise way so that you get your desired results without impacting the surrounding area. Once Kybella® has destroyed the target fat cells, your body will begin to flush them out. This is a gradual process, which gives you very natural-looking results that develop over time. One of the biggest reasons to consider this treatment is that results are permanent. Your body no longer creates new fat cells.
What to Expect with Kybella®
After a consultation, where we develop a treatment plan just for you, it will be time for your first appointment. Many people benefit from multiple sessions; these need to be spaced a few weeks apart in order to give your body time to flush out the fat. How many injections required varies. Treatments take as little as 15 to 20 minutes to complete and will not take you away from your daily life.
Why Choose Kybella®?
There are many reasons that Kybella® is the ultimate double chin treatment. Some of the biggest benefits include:
- It is safe and approved by the Food and Drug Administration
- It is non-surgical and considered minimally invasive
- Results are permanent, even if you gain weight in the future
- It makes the face look slimmer and more youthful
- It results in no downtime
Targeting a double chin through diet and exercise is next to impossible. A surgical procedure to correct the issue usually involves a great deal of pain as well as a major disruption to your life. Kybella® can change the appearance of your chin in a dramatic way without these drawbacks.
