Injections of Kybella Reduce Excess Submental Fat

Submental fat, also known as fullness of the chin or a double chin, is a condition characterized by the accumulation of fat under the chin. A double chin can be quite upsetting. In fact, it has been shown to bother people as much as their wrinkles or circles around their eyes.

It is generally thought that a double chin is strictly the result of obesity. However, this is not always the case. Though obesity is one of the primary factors, a double chin often also occurs as a result of genetic predisposition or as a symptom of aging.

This means that a double chin cannot be fixed purely through exercise. In fact, in many cases, it has been observed that exercise completely fails to reduce the presence of a double chin.

Fortunately, there is a better solution that double-chin patients can depend on: Kybella.

The Solution to Your Double Chin

Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that has the ability to eliminate fat cells in the area under the chin, where the fat accumulates. It is the only treatment of its kind to be approved by the FDA.

Kybella works because of synthetic deoxycholic acid, the active ingredient in the solution. Deoxycholic acid occurs naturally in the human body. It is a molecule that plays a key role in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fats.

When Kybella is injected into the target area under the chin, the synthetic deoxycholic acid begins to attack and eliminate the fat cells. Eventually, the reduction in chin fullness starts to become apparent as a result of the treatment.

Exercise reduces fat cells, but it does not get rid of them. With Kybella, on the other hand, the elimination of the fat cells is permanent. Because of this, the likelihood of repeated fat accumulation in the area is next to impossible, which makes Kybella a unique treatment that produces permanent results. Once you get Kybella injections, you’ll never have to come in for repeat sessions.

What to Expect with Kybella

Though it is a one-time treatment, the Kybella procedure is divided into a total of six injection sessions, each lasting around 20 minutes. This is done to ensure the best results possible. The injections will be administered once the target areas are identified and marked.

Anesthesia will not be required due to the extreme simplicity of the procedure. However, if you are concerned, you can talk to Dr. Kaye regarding anesthetic solutions.

After the Kybella treatment, you can return to your usual routine immediately. There is no need for recuperation time, making this procedure much more convenient than a surgical procedure would be.

For a few days after getting a Kybella treatment, you will be required to avoid intense physical activities, the consumption of alcohol, and exposure to the sun.
