Chin fat or a “double chin” can be caused by weight gain, or it can be caused by age or genetics. Whatever the reason, diet and exercise are usually not enough to resolve the problem, especially if it is caused by age or genetics. Until now, only surgical procedures such as liposuction or a neck lift could improve the contour of the neck. Now, a new option is available.
If you have unwanted fat under your chin, you may want to consider Kybella®. This FDA-approved, non-invasive treatment targets and eliminates fat cells under the chin without surgery, and the procedure takes less than one hour to complete.
The working ingredient in Kybella® is deoxycholic acid, a molecule that is naturally occurring in the body. It assists with the breakdown of fats in the diet. When injected into the fat under the chin, Kybella® destroys the fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal. For this reason, Kybella® is considered a permanent, non-surgical treatment option.
The Benefits of Kybella® Over a Neck Lift
Kybella® is non-surgical. It is an injectable treatment, which means that no incisions have to be made on your body. That means no scars, no downtime and a much lower risk of complications. With Kybella®, you’re able to resume your normal daily activities quickly. Kybella® is also a very quick and safe treatment that comes with very few risks.
When Will I See Results?
After the swelling subsides, you will start to notice the results of your Kybella® treatment. The results are noticeable within a month.
You will have to follow up with additional treatments to get the results you are looking for. Some patients will get three or four treatments. You may need up to six treatments to experience maximum results. Treatments must be at least one month apart. With each treatment, your results will improve. With maximum results, ultimately you may experience the complete disappearance of your double chin.
