Trying to get rid of a double chin without professional help can be a frustrating experience. That is why so many people are now turning to the advanced injectable known as Kybella. This revolutionary product quickly and safely weakens fat cells so that your body can expel them. In the weeks following your Kybella appointment, your double chin is going to fade away before your eyes.
Understanding Deoxycholic Acid
What makes this particular type of acid so unique is the fact that it leaves the nearby soft tissue undamaged as it metabolizes the fat cells. Doctors began experimenting with this substance a few decades ago to see if they could come up with a concentrated product that works on localized pockets of fat. After exhaustive research, they developed the injectable we now call Kybella.
The Power of Kybella
Kybella is made from a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid that was approved by the FDA to treat fat just below the chin. Most other double chin treatments require surgeons to manually remove the fat. Kybella is a minimally invasive alternative to these surgical options. This injectable works by slowly weakening the fat cells in your chin over the course of a few months. Once those cells are weak enough, your body can naturally expel them just like any other damaged piece of tissue.
Many patients are now choosing Kybella over other treatments because they won’t have to worry about recovery after each of their appointments. Following your injections, you can head back to work or your other normal activities without worrying about any severe side effects. As long as you stay hydrated and protect your skin from sun damage, your body will do the rest of the work.
How Many Treatments Are Needed?
Each Kybella appointment takes minutes to complete, and you don’t need to follow any lengthy or confusing instructions beforehand. Once you arrive at the office, one of our team members will quickly clean the treatment site before administering doses of Kybella directly into the skin. The number of treatments will be tailored to your needs during your consultation.
