Having a double chin can make a person feel self-conscious about his or her appearance. For some, a double chin is a result of excess fat stored under the chin, whereas, others might develop one due to genetics or the aging process. Given the many reasons that can cause one to develop a double chin, it cannot always be addressed by weight loss. However, there is a way to treat it through the use of facial rejuvenation.
Instead of undergoing an invasive surgical procedure, patients can now opt for a minimally invasive solution, known as Kybella, to treat their double chin. Kybella is comprised of deoxycholic acid, which is injected into a patient’s double chin to break down the fat cells that are later absorbed into the body.
In addition to giving patients another option to getting rid of their double chin, Kybella provides other benefits that make it a great option, including:
- Long-lasting results: Kybella dissolves a patient’s submental fat on a cellular level, rendering it just as effective in the long run as any other procedure. This means, regardless if you decide to have your double chin surgically removed or choose Kybella to dissolve it, the cells will not regenerate.
- A simpler solution: Kybella can not only address a patient’s double chin, it can also restore definition to the neck and jawline. Since it uses a substance that is already naturally present in the body to eliminate fat cells, the risk of an adverse reaction is quite low, making it both effective and safe.
- No recovery time: One of the most common reasons why patients choose Kybella is the lack of recovery time compared to a surgical procedure. Facelifts and neck lefts generally warrant a week or two away from work and minimal activity, whereas patients who are treated with Kybella are able to recover within a span of 48 hours. Patients might experience some immediate pain as the injection begins to work and dissolve the fat, but it is easily manageable with pain medication.
- Submental fullness: Kybella was designed specifically to treat submental fullness and to reduce submental fat. However, unlike other treatments like CoolSculpting or liposuction, which are designed to address larger areas of the body, Kybella was created to target a patient’s chin, which is a somewhat fragile area of the body that is susceptible to scarring and bruising, which is why it is also effective in minimizing the presence of any negative effects.
