Kybella® Injections to Eliminate Your Double Chin
No one needs more than one chin. When submental fat, whether genetic or not, supplies you with another one, it can make you feel self-conscious. Creative Facial Aesthetics offers a solution to the double chin problem. Those unwanted fat deposits can be removed with Kybella® treatments. This non-surgical option for reducing the appearance of fat under your chin produces a slim, attractive jawline.
The ingredients in Kybella dissolve fat by breaking down fat cells, which are then re-absorbed back into the body. This treatment is very effective for removing those small pockets of fat that form beneath the chin. Even individuals who are physically fit can develop these patches of fat. Kybella is the first and only treatment of its kind available to remove subcutaneous fat without surgery.
Eliminating Unwanted Chin Fat
Kybella treatments consist of a series of injections with a fine needle in the targeted area. Treatments proceed over the course of a few months. The number of treatments depends on the amount of fat needing removal. Each treatment takes 20 minutes or less, depending on how many injections are needed.
Kybella works by using a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid to dissolve fat cells. Deoxycholic acid is a salt in human bile that aids in fat digestion. In the natural state, this acid breaks down fat cells in the digestive tract by destroying the cell membrane. The synthetic version does the same thing in targeted locations when injected into the subcutaneous fat under the chin.
When the fat cells are destroyed, the cellular debris is eliminated through the lymphatic and circulatory systems via specialized immunologic cells. This gradual process takes several weeks to reach completion. The deoxycholic acid is metabolized, broken down and excreted as waste.
Results from Kybella treatments may not be seen until after two to four treatments. However, once the fat has been eliminated, it is gone. The fat cells in that area are destroyed so they do not return. In that way, eliminating chin fat with Kybella is permanent.
Safe and Effective
Kybella was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in 2015. Clinical trials have shown Kybella to be safe and effective. Over 80% of the clinical trial participants reported significant improved satisfaction with their appearance after receiving treatment.
This non-surgical procedure produces the look you want without the discomfort and downtime needed for surgery. No incisions are necessary, only small injections. Most people have minimal downtime with Kybella treatments.
Common side effects associated with treatment include pain, swelling, bruising, redness and numbness in the treatment area. Downtime varies from patient to patient, and most side effects resolve within a week or two. Any discomfort you feel after treatment should be brought to your doctor’s attention.
Serious side effects seldom occur, but if you experience any of them, they should be reported to your doctor immediately. These include facial muscle weakness, nerve injury in the jaw, an uneven smile and trouble swallowing.
