For many people in Santa Rosa, the one thing they’d choose to change on their face would probably be their “double chin.” It’s an issue for a host of reasons. That extra bit of fat beneath your chin can really detract from your appearance, causing you to look heavier or older than you are. No matter how well you eat or how much you work out, it’s usually impossible to get rid of a double chin. Known medically as “submental fullness”, this condition used to have to be treated surgically or with liposuction. Fortunately, today you can make that fat disappear through an injectable treatment. If this sounds intriguing to you, keep reading to learn all about reducing a double chin with Kybella®.
The active ingredient in Kybella® is deoxycholic acid, a natural substance found in the body whose purpose is to emulsify, or “melt”, fat. Kybella® is an injectable treatment that uses the body’s own process to naturally eliminate the fat beneath the chin, resulting in a smoother, more sculpted facial profile.
One of the main benefits of Kybella® is that there’s no need for a more invasive procedure to reduce your double chin. Results are typically quite significant. You can expect to have a much more defined chin and jawline. In addition, results are long-lasting.
How It Works
The Kybella® solution is injected into the fat pockets of the target treatment area. Through a process called lipolysis, the deoxycholic acid begins to gradually break down the fat cells. These cells are then metabolized in order to be removed naturally from the body over time. A session usually only takes a short amount of time. Side effects are minimal, with some soreness or redness expected. This should subside shortly. You will likely require a series of treatments, but this will be determined by your specific circumstances.
