There are few things that are as discouraging as looking in the mirror and being unhappy with what you see. For many patients, the reason for this comes down to excess fat under their chin.
Unlike many other areas of the body, a double chin might never respond to a healthy diet and rigorous exercise program. If this sounds like your situation, then Kybella® injections could be just what you need to achieve your cosmetic goals.
Where Did My Double Chin Come From?
A double chin is nothing more than a few extra layers of fat and other forms of soft tissue just below the jawline. For the vast majority of patients, this is a result of their genetics.
That being said, there are some variables that will further increase one’s risk of developing this issue including a high BMI and smoking. Unfortunately, even patients who stay at a healthy weight and never smoke might still find themselves with a double chin at some point in their life.
Even though this condition is generally not dangerous, it is almost always associated with an aged appearance. This is just one of the reasons that many people have turned to professional treatments such as Kybella® in order to look and feel years younger.
Reaching Your Goals Without Surgery
Invasive cosmetic procedures come with several drawbacks. For many patients, the amount of time that is needed to recover from surgery is simply too long.
Others would like to avoid the possibility of surgical scars around the neck and face. With injectables such as Kybella®, many of these drawbacks can be avoided entirely.
Kybella® was approved by the FDA in April of 2015, and this makes it one of the newest treatments on the market. This unique injection is comprised of a substance known as deoxycholic acid, which the human body produces naturally.
Your Kybella® Appointment
When Kybella® is administered by an experienced practitioner, the results will often last for a long time. During your first visit, we will take a quick look at your medical history to see if you will make a good candidate.
On the day of your treatment, you will receive injections. The number of injections may vary based on each individual case. Some patients may need additional appointments spaced a month apart.
