Do you have an accumulation of fat under your chin? This fat is known as submental fullness but is more commonly referred to as a double chin. It may comfort you to know millions of Americans are in the same position as you. But if your double chin bothers you, we’re here to help.
At Simply Radiant in Las Vegas, NV, we can help you eliminate your double chin for good with Kybella injections. Keep reading to learn everything you need to know about this revolutionary, non-surgical double chin treatment.
What Is Kybella?
Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable treatment meant to target and eliminate moderate to severe submental fullness in men and women. It is the first and only treatment of its kind, breaking into the cosmetic world in 2015, and already has thousands of satisfied users nationwide.
What Causes Submental Fullness?
Weight gain due to pregnancy, hormones, or lifestyle changes is the most common cause of submental fullness. Unfortunately, you can’t choose where on your body you gain or lose weight. This makes it very difficult to prevent the formation of a double chin or target it once it appears.
Although weight gain is the most common reason for submental fullness, other factors may make you more likely to develop it, including your genetic makeup and age. The likelihood of submental fullness increases with age.
6 Benefits of Kybella Injections
Curious about what Kybella can do for you? Read on to learn about six benefits to expect from Kybella injections.
1. Fast-Acting Formula
The active ingredient in Kybella, deoxycholic acid, begins to work immediately after being injected. Deoxycholic acid is a type of bile acid naturally produced and excreted by your liver. Its primary function in your body is to aid in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat during the digestive process.
When deoxycholic acid is injected under your chin, it has the same effect on the surrounding fat cells as it does on dietary fat cells. That’s why many people refer to Kybella as a fat “melting” treatment.
People who receive Kybella injections notice a reduction in submental fullness after each treatment session. In clinical studies, some patients were even able to achieve their desired result with just one treatment.
2. Permanently Eliminates Fat
The fat that Kybella dissolves gets metabolized and excreted from your body. Those fat cells are permanently destroyed and can never return. This means that once you achieve your desired results, you won’t need any more treatments to maintain them.
It’s important to note that the results of Kybella are dependent on you maintaining a healthy weight. If you gain weight after treatment, new fat cells may accumulate under your chin.
3. Kybella Treatment Is Quick and Simple
Kybella is a non-surgical, non-invasive alternative to liposuction and other plastic surgery procedures. This means it has a much simpler treatment and recovery process.
No general anesthesia is used during Kybella treatment, although we can apply a topical anesthetic to ensure your comfort. Additionally, the entire process is usually completed in less than 20 minutes. This makes it perfect for people with busy schedules who cannot take time off from work.
4. You Receive a Customized Treatment Plan
We customize every treatment we provide, including Kybella injections. After meeting with you for a consultation, we will develop a customized treatment plan based on the severity of your submental fullness. Most people require four to six treatments to achieve their desired results, but everybody is unique.
If you are interested in any of our other cosmetic treatments, we can find the best way to incorporate them into your treatment plan.
5. Most Adults Are Good Candidates
Most adults with moderate to severe submental fullness make good candidates for Kybella treatment. There is no right or wrong age to receive Kybella, and the treatment is safe and effective for both men and women.
There are very few factors that preclude you from receiving treatment. If you have an active skin infection or flare-up of an existing skin condition, we won’t be able to go through with treatment until it clears up.
Additionally, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should wait until you are no longer pregnant or breastfeeding before getting treatment.
6. Kybella Treatment Creates a Younger-Looking Profile
Many people seek out Kybella to achieve a slimmer profile and tighter jaw and neck contour but are surprised to see they also look younger after treatment. A double chin can weigh down your facial features and make you appear older than you really are. By eliminating this fat, we can help restore a more youthful-looking appearance.
What to Expect After Kybella Treatment
After treatment, you can immediately return to your normal daily activities. Some people choose to take it easy for a day or two after treatment, but there are no medical restrictions you must abide by after treatment.
A small amount of swelling is to be expected and is actually a good sign. As Kybella begins to destroy fat cells, it causes the area to mildly and temporarily swell.
