Is your double chin causing you to do a double-take? There’s good news—Kybella can help you melt it away without surgery. At Maven Medical Arts in Draper, UT, we are industry-leading providers of this treatment. So, what is Kybella, and what can it do for you?
What Is Kybella?
An Effective Treatment for a Double Chin
This treatment is an injectable that targets excess fat below the chin. Also called submental fullness, a double chin is a common source of aggravation for many people. In fact, according to a survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, 67% of people said their double chin bothered them.
Kybella How It Works
Like all injectables, Kybella works without surgery. It contains a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid: a substance your body produces for itself. When injected, it helps your body burn and absorb fat cells. In this way, it works according to your natural processes. We administer this treatment with multiple injections delivered directly into the targeted area. After your treatment is finished, the targeted cells will no longer store fat. When you choose these injections, you can look forward to lasting results.
Excess fat below your chin can be a tricky problem to solve. There are several reasons why you might have it:
- Weight gain
- Getting older
Anyone Can Have It
While submental fullness tends to become exaggerated as we gain weight or get older, it can affect young, thin people too. Since it’s impossible to control where your body gains weight, you might be very fit in other areas and still have this problem. As a result, extra fullness under the chin can make you look heavier than you actually are.
Diet and Exercise Might Not Work
As any fitness expert will tell you that the amount of exercise you do can affect the amount of weight you lose, but not where you lose it. Even exercises that target a specific area of your body will not make the fat come off that region faster.
While good lifestyle choices can help you become thinner, they might not reduce your double chin. If you are prone to submental fullness, it may be difficult to eliminate entirely.
The Benefits of Kybella
It Offers Targeted Fat Loss
While diet and exercise can’t target a specific area, this treatment can. For people who are bothered by fat under the chin, this solution provides a remedy that is direct, efficient, and effective.
It Doesn’t Require Surgery
If you are looking for an alternative to liposuction, this treatment is a great option for you. It is minimally invasive and does not require any incisions.
It Can Be Administered Quickly
These injections take only 15 to 20 minutes to administer. Because the treatment is nonsurgical, there is generally very little downtime. It is also very little you need to do to prepare. Just let us know about any neck or facial surgeries you have had and avoid ibuprofen and acetaminophen. If there is anything else you need to do, we’ll let you know.
It Improves Your Profile
One of the reasons many people want to get rid of the excess fat below their chin is the fact that it can have a big impact on the way a person looks from the side. Unlike other areas of the body, it’s difficult to cover your neck with clothing all the time. This treatment will help improve your appearance by addressing fat in a highly visible place.
It Only Requires a Few Sessions
While some treatments require maintenance sessions for as long as you want to keep up the results, these injections deliver lasting results. Most patients receive six sets of injections spaced approximately one month apart. Some receive even less.
We will determine the number that is right for you according to how much fat you would like to lose. After the initial series, your fat cells will be permanently altered, and you won’t have to come back for more.
It Offers Fast Results
You can see improvements in your profile with as few as two sessions. The benefits will accumulate with each additional session.
It Works for Both Men and Women
Everyone loves the look of a great profile. This treatment works for both men and women, and most generally healthy adults are candidates.
