Having a double chin can be annoying or even bothersome. In fact, many people may feel self-conscious about it during social interactions or in taking photographs.
According to them, a double chin makes them look older, heavier, and less sculpted. It also makes them wary about wearing clothes with certain necklines or styles that can draw attention to their chin or neckline.
Fortunately, there are non-invasive cosmetic treatments like Kybella® that address double chin.
Let’s take a look at how it works and how it can help.
What Is Kybella®?
Kybella® is the only FDA-approved injectable in reducing fat in the submental area, also called double chin.
It is safe and effective in dissolving fat cells under the chin to improve your profile.
Kybella® is made from a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occuring bile enzyme in the gut. This enzyme aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.
Thus, when injected into the treatment area, Kybella® can destroy fat cells.
What Are The Benefits of Kybella®?
Kybella® offers the following 7 benefits and advantages:
Targeted Fat Reduction
Unlike other treatments that focus on larger treatment areas, Kybella® can specifically target and eliminate small pockets of fat under the chin.
Kybella® gradually destroys fat cells. This allows a natural-looking effect since there will be no sudden changes in your appearance – or any visible scars.
It is an ideal non-surgical alternative to neck lift surgery or chin liposuction. This makes it an attractive option for those who don’t like the hassle of surgical operations.
Kybella® procedures take about 30 minutes. This makes it perfect for those with busy schedules.
Once destroyed, the targeted fat cells in the submental area will no longer return. With proper maintenance, you can enjoy the long-lasting results with proper maintenance.
Minimal Side Effects
Kybella® also has mild side effects post-treatment. This includes swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort which can be managed by pain relievers and ice packs.
Improved Self Confidence
Lastly, Kybella® can help increase your self-confidence as you achieve a more sculpted and younger-looking appearance.
Who Is an Ideal Candidate for Kybella®?
Kybella® is ideal for patients who are at least 18 years old and are bothered by the appearance of double chins.
It is also a good option for those who want to reduce moderate to severe submental fat but are afraid of facial plastic surgery procedures.
Although Kybella® is minimally-invasive, pregnant or nursing women still have to check with their physicians prior to availing the procedure.
The same goes for patients who have trouble swallowing or those with an infection or another medical condition near the neck and chin.
