Nonsurgical treatment by way of injectables has become an attractive option for those who do not want to receive surgery or who desire subtle enhancement. Most injectables, however, work to fill in areas of the skin that have lost volume. Very few reduce unwanted features or destroy fat.
Kybella is different. It’s a series of injections that work to eliminate submental fullness, commonly known as the double chin. Because you’re now able to reduce fat cells in a simple injection – without the need for surgery or downtime – the injection has begun taking the world by storm!
HOW DOES KYBELLA WORK?
Kybella is composed of a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule in the body. The purpose of the acid is to break down and dispose of dietary fat. Usually, though, the amount of deoxycholic acid in the body is not enough to produce a substantial difference in fat distribution.
Increasing the concentration of deoxycholic acid can, however, create a noticeable reduction in fat, which is precisely what Kybella does. In six easy injections, you can see your double chin decrease in size.
Once the fat has been destroyed in your chin, it will not return. After six treatment sessions, spaced one month apart, you will have reached your treatment goal, and no further injections are necessary. Some patients may begin to notice their results after three or four injections, but it’s recommended that you carry out the entire procedure for optimal results.
WOULD YOU BENEFIT FROM KYBELLA?
If you are experiencing submental fullness, you likely have an excess amount of fat underneath your chin. A double chin can make you feel self-conscious about your appearance and may cause you to look older or overweight, even if you eat healthily and exercise.
There are several ways to correct a double chin, including liposuction and facelift procedures, but receiving surgery is not always the desired option. If you are not interested in invasive techniques but want a slimmer facial contour, then Kybella may be right for you.
Kybella’s nonsurgical results are especially beneficial for patients who lead active lifestyles and who don’t want to take time away from their daily routine for recovery. Because the symptoms for Kybella are minimal, there is no extensive downtime, making it an ideal option for those with busy schedules.
A consultation with Dr. Mashhadian will help you learn more about Kybella and its intended purposes. From there, you can decide whether the injection would be beneficial for your unique case.
You will find, after receiving treatment with Kybella, that you have more confidence on a day-to- day basis. Routine tasks become easier since you are no longer self-conscious about your profile. When you look good, you feel good, and Kybella can help you feel like the best version of yourself.
