Do you look like your Aunt Bertha? Same eyes, same color hair, same double chin? If you love everything about your face, but dislike that fullness that age (or genetics) has given you, you are not alone. Over 80 percent of individuals with a fullness of the face or a double chin report disliking their appearance. If this is you and you’ve been just living with your double chin, you may want to think about Kybella.
What Causes Chin Fat?
Double chins and fullness near the jawline develop because of genetics, diets high in fat and processed foods, weight gain, changes in hormones, and the aging process. Poor posture can also cause double chins because it weakens the muscles of the chin and neck, causing the skin to lose elasticity and making fat in the area sag.
What Is Kybella?
Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment designed to remove unwanted fat from the chin.
It works by destroying unwanted fat cells in the treatment area. To get technical, Kybella is identical to deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps to absorb fat.
Why Choose Kybella?
Aside from being very safe and effective, Kybella is a minimally invasive injection, and requires no incision, anesthesia or stitches. Also, because the treatment is minimally invasive, you can expect no downtime of surgery or bruising and swelling caused by liposuction (yes, you can liposuction your chin). These features make Kybella an excellent option to remove unwanted fat for individuals who want a nonsurgical solution to eliminating their double chin.
How Long Does Kybella Take to Work?
We know you are in a hurry to get rid of unwanted fat and fullness in your chin, but as amazing as Kybella is, it is not an overnight cure. Most people need four to six treatments to get the results they want.
The results of Kybella are permanent, as the fat cells in the treatment area are permanently destroyed. However, new fat cells can develop with weight gain.
