If your double chin bothers you when you see it in the mirror, you are not alone. Men and women around the world are bothered by having a double chin. It is a common problem that people have because of hereditary issues, changes in their facial structure as they get older, or weight fluctuations. In the past, the only option for treating a double chin was invasive techniques like liposuction. And while these techniques can be effective, they also bring with them a number of unwanted side effects. Now, there is a minimally-invasive option for people who want to get rid of submental fat at a quick visit to our medical spa. This treatment is known as Kybella®.
A Minimally-Invasive Treatment
The process involves you receiving a series of injections of deoxycholic acid at our medical spa. The synthetic form of deoxycholic acid used in these injections is similar to the natural form of deoxycholic acid your body produces when it is breaking down dietary fat.
When Kybella® is injected into your double chin, it begins to work immediately. It starts to attack the fat underneath your chin, causing the cells to rupture. Over time, your body reacts to the dead fat cells by removing the cellular debris as well as the fatty material they released from your body via your lymphatic system.
You will likely need multiple treatments in order to see the desired results. Most individuals start to see improvements in the appearance of their double chin after their first or second visit to our medical spa. During your consultation, we will help you determine how many treatments you will need in total.
A Quick Treatment
Kybella® treatments are relatively quick. It should take around 30 minutes per treatment session. You are not going to have the downtime or the recovery time you would have had if you opted for something more invasive like liposuction. Most are able to come into our medical spa, have their treatments performed, and then walk out without any side effects and without any need to change their daily routine.
