When a person describes someone as having a double chin, they are definitely not paying that individual a compliment. To the contrary, they are saying that this individual has a collection of fat on the bottom of their face that is affecting their overall appearance. In the medical world, a double chin is referred to as submental fat. Cosmetic surgeons hear complaints from their patients about a double chin just about every single day. This is because a double chin can have a detrimental effect on the way a person looks and feels about themselves. Fortunately, KYBELLA® can help you get rid of your double chin without ever having to go under the knife.
One of the interesting things about having a double chin is that even if you are relatively skinny, a double chin can make you look heavier than you really are. A double chin is one of the biggest concerns among people when it comes to their facial appearance.
In 2015, the FDA approved the use of KYBELLA®. This minimally invasive procedure is designed to help those with an excess accumulation of submental fat. It uses deoxycholic acid, something that your body naturally produces to help break down dietary fat. These injections have been clinically shown to reduce submental fat. Currently, KYBELLA® is the only treatment that has been approved by the FDA for use as an injectable to treat submental fat. While research is still going on to see if this injectable could be used on other parts of the body, right now it is only approved for treating double chins.
KYBELLA® works because of its ability to attack and destroy subcutaneous fat cells. When a fat cell is broken up, it can’t store fat. It eventually dies and is absorbed into the body. The number of treatments you will need will vary depending on the amount of fat you have underneath your chin and your personal goals. Patients can receive up to five treatments, each spaced at least one month apart.
In just 15 to 20 minutes per session, you can watch your double chin disappear with KYBELLA®.
