Not all fat responds to weight loss. If you have stubborn fat deposits found under your chin, commonly known as a double chin, you know how true this is. Medically known as submental fat, a double chin is notoriously unresponsive to changes in exercise routines and diet. No matter how many times you run around the block or drink a green smoothie, it is still there staring you in the face when you look in the mirror. The good news is that a treatment called Kybella® can help to eliminate this unwelcome condition and restore the normal contours of your chin and face.
What is Kybella®?
Kybella® is the first injectable treatment that was approved by the Food and Drug Administration for reducing the condition known as a double chin. Surveys have found that the majority of patients are annoyed by the presence of excess fat deposits found under their chin. Liposuction has been used in the past to treat this condition, but a growing number of patients prefer non-surgical treatment options. This injectable treatment works by breaking down fat found under the chin area. It is similar to facial fillers and BOTOX®, in that it is an injectable treatment. One crucial difference is that it offers permanent results if the patient maintains their pre-treatment weight.
What Should I Expect During My Kybella® Procedure?
Kybella® treatment will only take a few minutes. We mark the fat pad found under your chin for treatment and thoroughly cleanse your skin, removing oils and makeup in the process. We may use temporary tattoos or marked dots to guide our placement of the injections and ensure that they are placed evenly. We then inject Kybella® at numerous strategic points. With additional treatments, the fat pad found under your chin will become thinner and may not require as much product in the future.
