Some of us have a little extra fat under our chins that drag our faces downward, and make us look bigger. For people who have a genetic predisposition for under-chin fat, or a double-chin, this can be a hard struggle to overcome. If changing your diet and exercise aren’t helping you lose that under-chin fat, keep reading to learn about the game-changing non-surgical option: Kybella.
What is Kybella?
Kybella is a newer procedure that utilizes a cosmetic injectable instead of a surgical procedure to help unwanted fat from underneath the chin disappear. Kybella’s active ingredient is deoxycholic acid, which is a substance that allows your body break down stubborn fat under the chin, and actually helps keep the fat off afterwards. The Kybella solution is injected at regular intervals across the under-chin area, where it goes to work helping break down unwelcome fat. Imagine not needing to go in for surgery or Liposuction but still getting great results!
The Kybella procedure is straightforward. A series of injections are given across the desired site over a short appointment. The solution then interacts with the fat in your body, and starts breaking those cells down. Your body sees the broken down fat cells as the same as other waste products, and they are removed via the lymph system.
You should be aware that you may have some swelling initially after the treatment is completed. This swelling is humorously referred to as “Bullfrog Neck”, and it simply means that the solution is going to work breaking down fat cells.
How until I see results?
After your first injections appointment, you may experience swelling that peaks around 24 hours after your injections. This swelling may last a few days or a few weeks, depending on your specific situation. Sometimes, it may take a few months for the best results to be seen, so let us know if you have a big event coming up that you are planning on.
How many treatments are suggested?
Multiple visits may be required to see the best results. Overall, expect at least two treatments to see the best results from your Kybella.
