According to one survey that was done, for approximately 80 percent of Americans, one of the things they would love to change about their face is their double chin. Most people hate having a double chin, but they do not hate it enough to get surgery. Liposuction has been an option for many years. However, there are some very serious risks, and these risks have been enough to scare people off from getting liposuction underneath their chin. Recently, the same people who provided the world with BOTOX® came up with Kybella®. This treatment may be just what you have been looking for to eliminate your double chin.
Kybella® is a non-surgical procedure that is designed to help you get rid of your double chin. The active ingredient in Kybella® is something that you are already making in your body. This is deoxycholic acid. When it is naturally found in your body, the acid is designed to break down and absorb dietary fat. When Kybella® is injected underneath your chin, it safely destroys the fat cells. When the fat cells are destroyed, they no longer have the ability to hold onto fat.
One of the nice things about Kybella® is that the results it produces are permanent. When the fat cells are dead, your body absorbs them and removes them through its natural waste removal process. These fat cells don’t come back. When they are gone, they are gone. This makes Kybella® an amazing option for individuals who want to do something about their double chin, but who do not feel that surgery is the right option for them.
The treatments are relatively simple and straightforward. Our practitioner is first going to look at the area that you want to have treated in order to determine where the injections should be made. During the actual treatment session, the Kybella® solution is skillfully injected into the preselected areas. There is very little to no downtime, and you do not have to spend days recovering before you can get back to your everyday life. Gradually, you are going to notice that you have a more defined profile and that your double chin has become a thing of the past.
