How many times have you looked at a selfie and thought, “Ugh. My double chin…”? If the above describes you, there’s no need for you to continue to feel that way about yourself. You can eliminate your double chin easily with a new aesthetic treatment – Kybella.
The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery reported that approximately 67% of people are dissatisfied with their face. This was due to having a double chin.
Kybella is an aesthetic treatment to reduce the amount of excess fat under the chin. The treatment takes approximately 20 minutes and uses a naturally occurring substance in the body – deoxycholic acid. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Kybella in 2015.
In a clinical trial, 82.4 percent of people reported they saw significant improvement of their double chin. This study concluded that this treatment is not only safe, but effective as well.
Kybella is made up of deoxycholic acid, which is a bile acid. It is produced in the body, and it’s chief responsibility is to absorb fat. Since this is not found in many areas of the body, such as under the chin, it’s possible to inject in areas where people would like to have less fat. When the Kybella is injected, the acid kills fat cells so they are no longer able to store fat.
When you arrive at your appointment, the aesthetic will numb the area under the chin and mark where the injections will be placed. Most people receive between 20 to 50 injections in the area. After the treatment, it can take a few weeks to see full results as the acid works in the area to eliminate fat cells.
Multiple treatments are usually required to get rid of a double chin completely. Each treatment should be one month apart. The maximum number of treatments someone can safely receive is six.
The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) reported that approximately 67 percent of people are dissatisfied with their face because of a double chin. Due to genetics, many people have fat underneath their chin. Weight gain and age can cause a double chin to grow making it even more apparent. While losing weight can improve the look of a double chin, most people will still have some evidence of one.
This is why Kybella has become so popular ever since it was introduced a few years ago. It’s an easy and safe way to get rid of a double chin. Those who are over the age of 18 are the best candidates for this treatment. Those who plan to have facial surgery are not candidates for this treatment. Those who are pregnant or nursing are also not candidates.
