If you are tired of submental fat that won’t budge no matter what you do, then you may want to consider Kybella as liposuction alterative.
However, before undergoing this nonsurgical double chin treatment, you likely have a number of questions about the procedure, including: What is Kybella? How does it get rid of a double chin? Does Kybella really work?
Continue reading to find out the answers to these questions and learn if Kybella is right for you.
What Is Kybella?
Kybella is an injectable double-chin treatment and a noninvasive alternative to liposuction. It is designed to eradicate submental fullness and achieve a slimmer neck and more refined jawline.
The treatment is performed in the comfort of our office by a certified and skilled injector and takes just 15-20 minutes.
How Does Kybella Eliminate a Double Chin?
Kybella is composed of a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid. When injected into localized fat pockets, it dissolves fat cell membranes.
In the coming weeks, the body metabolizes the damaged fat cells and naturally clears them from the body.
Does Kybella Really Work?
If you are interested in this double chin treatment, you’re probably wondering: Does Kybella really work?
Kybella is a safe and effective solution to a double-chin and may achieve up to a 40% improvement after three treatments, spaced six weeks apart. With that being said, it’s important for patients considering Kybella to be properly informed and have realistic expectations of procedure and results.
The amount of targeted fat and skin quality are two factors that may lead to variable fat reduction from patient to patient.
Individuals with localized fat deposits and good elasticity typically see visible slimming following two treatments.
Those with larger amounts of excess fat and skin laxity usually require more sessions and may experience less dramatic results.
It’s also worth noting that, although Kybella is nonsurgical and doesn’t require recovery, patients may experience swelling and tenderness for several days to weeks after Kybella.
However, this associated inflammation is also instrumental in stimulating collagen and producing a tauter jawline.
