Kybella Treatment for Double Chin
Submental fat, commonly known as a double chin, can give you the appearance of being overweight or even make you look older. Some people have a genetic predisposition to developing a double chin. Other factors include changes in weight or aging. No matter what the cause, a series of non-surgical, non-invasive injections of Kybella can gradually, yet permanently, dissolve the fat under your chin in one go, giving you a more pleasing profile, and a more youthful appearance.
Kybella is an FDA-approved injection and fat melting treatment specifically designed to eliminate the dreaded double chin. This procedure is used for improving the appearance of moderate to severe fullness associated with submental fat – “double chin” – for adults.
This FDA-approved injection contains a naturally occurring molecule that dissolves fat, which your body then flushes out. The active ingredient in Kybella is called Deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction under the chin.
Dr. López has completed the specialized training required to administer Kybella, and has been showing her patients the great results this treatment offers. Side effects include possible swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and hardness at the site of injection for a short period of time.
Everyone's chin profile is different. Therefore, the number of treatment sessions will vary based on the amount of fat under the chin and your treatment goals. Most clients need two to three treatments spaced out four weeks apart.
