If you are worried about the appearance of a double chin or pockets of fat below your jawline, getting Kybella®, can resolve your concerns. As a nonsurgical treatment that delivers remarkable results, Kybella® can help you bid farewell to your double chin without intensive surgeries.
Before you get Kybella® to obtain a sharp and defined jawline, you may want to know a few details about the treatment. From learning how to prepare for Kybella® to knowing what to expect from the procedure, this information can get you acquainted with various aspects of the process.
To help you through this journey, here is what to know before Kybella®.
Kybella® is made from deoxycholic acid. In its natural form, deoxycholic acid is a substance that is produced by our bodies to absorb fat. When Kybella® introduces the synthetic form of deoxycholic acid to your fat cells under your chin, it effectively yet safely starts breaking down these fat cells.
Anyone over 18 years of age can safely receive Kybella®. This not only adds to the popularity of the treatment, but also makes it easy for you to obtain it through a specialized provider.
Since double chin can occur due to weight gain, aging, or genetics, many people over the age of 18 can be ideal candidates for Kybella®. But if you have loosened skin under your jawline, then you might need to look into a surgical option instead. This surgery not only contours your chin, but also trims excess skin from around the area to deliver a youthful appearance.
The treatment only takes a few minutes at most. The injectable treatment also poses minimal to no downtime and allows you to resume most usual activities right after your session. This makes Kybella® a highly preferable option over more intensive treatments such as liposuction.
Some people may need multiple injections of Kybella® in order to obtain the desired results. These injections are typically spread 6 weeks apart. In many cases, you may only need 2-3 treatments to see significant results and bid farewell to your double chin.
