For many, the double chin ranks high among appearance-related concerns. Excess submental fat, or fat below the chin, can affect the look of the profile and create a less youthful appearance. Whether due to genetics, excess weight or other causes, a safe, effective non-surgical solution is now available to reduce or eliminate a double chin. The Kybella double chin treatment uses an injection performed in-office by a licensed medical aesthetic provider to improve the look of moderate to severe double chins.
You may have seen Kybella in the news recently. Good Morning America was just one of many news programs to feature the application after it was approved by the Food and Drug Administration earlier this year. As a growing number of women and men seek out safe, effective ways to address aesthetic concerns, a low-risk injection offering dramatic results is bound to draw even more media attention in the future.
Kybella is a synthetic version of the deoxycholic acid produced by our bodies to aid in fat absorption. In the body, the acid dissolves fat cells as part of the digestive process. In this application, a certified aesthetic professional injects the synthetic version into submental fat. The injection breaks up fat cells by rupturing their membranes. Fat cells are permanently dissolved and metabolized by the body.
Minimal risks and side effects explain, in part, the rising use of Kybella for reduction of fat below the chin. The Kybella double chin treatment results in possible minor discomfort post treatment and variable swelling that may last up to one week. We at Lasky Aesthetics recommend wearing a chin strap to help reduce swelling. . Depending on the severity and what your goals are you may need anywhere from 1-4 treatments with injections occurring at four-week intervals. The procedure takes roughly 10 minutes.
