Every single one of us has a few things about our appearance that we love and a few things about our appearance that we hate. One of the more frustrating things about the aging process is that it starts to rob us of the things about our appearance that we love, while at the same time accentuating the things we don’t like. Among these negative things is the presence of a double chin, which can be with someone for their entire lives or start to form as they grow older. If you are unhappy with stubborn, excess fat underneath your chin, Kybella® may be able to help you.
What Is Kybella®?
When you look at a picture of yourself from 20 years ago, what did you like about the way you looked? You enjoyed having a full and youthful face. You had a clean jawline, and your face was wrinkle-free. What has happened? That clean jawline you once enjoyed is gone. It has been replaced with jowls or with a double chin. Problems like these can rob you of your confidence. Kybella® is designed to help you eliminate your double chin and boost your confidence to the same level it was when you were younger.
What Are the Benefits?
What’s nice about Kybella® is that it allows you to boost your confidence without resorting to surgery. Twenty years ago, if you wanted to boost your confidence by getting rid of your double chin, your only option was liposuction. Thanks to advances in medicine, you can now eliminate your double chin with the injectable known as Kybella®. There is no surgery, no liposuction and no recovery time.
Kybella® takes advantage of something that is already produced by your body. Deoxycholic acid is a salt that your body produces to help you to break down dietary fats. Kybella® is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid. When it is injected into the submental fat underneath your chin, it begins to break this fat down. As the fat breaks down, it is absorbed by your lymphatic system and removed through the natural waste process. As this process happens, you start to see your double chin disappear.
What Can I Expect?
Unlike more invasive procedures, Kybella® does not leave you enduring an extended period of downtime. Since it is non-surgical, you can receive your injections right here in our office and go right back to your day as usual. The number of injections you receive and the number of treatments you will need will vary depending on how much fat you need to have removed.
Aging changes the way we look. In some cases, it can even rob us of our confidence. Use Kybella® to eliminate your double chin and boost your confidence.
