There are a lot of surgical treatments that are available to fix or undo a double chin. Most of these revolve around some form of liposuction. Liposuction can produce some amazing results, but it is understandable that a lot of people shy away from it simply because of the risks that are involved, not to mention the discomfort and downtime.
In 2015, all of that changed. For the first time, people had a non-surgical way to effectively remove their double chin with Kybella®. This is an injectable that is designed to eventually break down and remove the fat that builds up underneath the neck, leading to a double chin. People have been amazed by the results they have been able to obtain with Kybella®.
Kybella® is a non-surgical injectable treatment that is designed to attack the fat underneath the chin. It is unique in that it is the only treatment of this type that has been approved by the FDA. Interestingly, while Kybella® is especially efficient at removing fat underneath the chin, it has not been approved by the FDA for use in other parts of the body.
So, how does Kybella® work? Well, the product is skillfully injected into certain areas and starts to destroy subcutaneous fat cells. As the cells break down, they lose their ability to store or to hold onto fat. The nice thing about this product is that its active ingredient is deoxycholic acid. This is something that is naturally produced by your body as a way of absorbing fat. This only increases the safety factor patients experience when using Kybella®.
Kybella® affects patients in different ways. Some patients with just one treatment see the results they want. Most patients will need a series of treatments to get the results they want. It all depends on the unique situation.
