Some of the most imposing signs of aging are actually quite surprising. While many people think that fine lines and wrinkles are solely responsible for aging the face, other factors like dark spots and sun spots can be just as culpable. In addition, if you’re predisposed to storing excess amounts of submental fat, you probably look a lot older than you really are. Moreover, aging the face is not the only way in which a double chin can diminish your good looks. Excess submental fat can also make you appear much heavier than you are as well. Fortunately, Kybella® is an FDA-approved injectable that offers a safe, minimally-invasive, and totally convenient way to get rid of unwanted fat under the chin and at the top of the neck.
What Is Kybella® and How Can It Reduce My Double Chin?
Among the many natural acids that your body produces, deoxycholic acid is a bile acid that’s capable of breaking down stores of collected fat. Kybella® uses a man-made version of deoxycholic acid to stimulate the same breakdown of unwanted fats as the result of direct injection. During a treatment, small amounts of this solution are inserted into submental fat that has collected from the very top of the neck to the front of the chin. Over time, this product will slowly dissolve the targeted fat stores, and the resulting byproducts will be metabolized and eliminated from the body. Within a matter of weeks, patients can have slimmer and more refined profiles, as well as a much more youthful appearance overall.
Why Choose Kybella®?
There are a number of reasons to look for an effective and trusted solution to submental fat. To start, there is no way to spot reduce collections of fat that are responsible for the formation of a double chin. Not only are the very few exercises for targeting the under-chin area, but weight loss is almost always a uniform process that leaves all parts of the body uniformly smaller. This means that if you cut calories and exercise more to drop a few pounds, your double chin may decrease in size, but every other part of your body will grow smaller proportionately.
Ultimately, your overall look will remain largely unchanged. Whenever there are targeted trouble zones such as the under-chin area, solutions like Kybella® are the surest and most efficient way to achieve your cosmetic goals.
Surgical options in double chin removal can entail a significant amount of risk. With these treatments, unwanted submental fat is physically excised. These surgeries entail the risk of scarring and infection, and they often require a marked amount of downtime and incision care. This is simply not so with Kybella®. With no tissue removal, no incisions, and no major aftereffects, most people are able to resume their regular schedules immediately after their treatments.
Regain Your Confidence
Many people begin to develop double chins in their late 30s and early 40s. This often occurs as skin and muscle structures start to break down, the metabolism slows, and disproportionate fat storage becomes a widespread issue. While you might be considering a dramatic and invasive approach to rejuvenating your appearance, Kybella® can help you achieve remarkable improvements in a safe and completely hassle-free way.
This simple, in-office procedure can make you look considerably younger and slimmer within just a matter of weeks. More importantly, the gradual and progressive loss of stored fats makes this one of the most inconspicuous cosmetic procedures on the market.
Kybella® Addresses Submental Fat Head-On
Many people are advised to seek facelift or mini-facelift surgeries once their accumulations of submental fat become considerable. Removing and lifting the facial skin in these instances, however, will not address the problem of disproportionate fat storage. Moreover, seeking these treatments as double chin solutions could entail a lot of unnecessary risk and effort on the part of the individual. Rather than altering the entire visage, localized injections target the source of the problem.
Increase Your Overall Marketability with Kybella®
Although most are reluctant to admit it, people are becoming increasingly appearance-conscious. This means that they are more likely to judge others based solely upon what they can see. It also means that maintaining a youthful, healthy, and overall robust appearance can be very beneficial in both the social and professional arenas. If you’re gearing up for a big promotion, a major job interview, your wedding, or any other significant life event, you can use Kybella® to quickly streamline your profile, and to regain your fresh, youthful good looks.
Getting Ready for a Kybella® Treatment
Given that Kybella® is a minimally-invasive procedure, there are few preparations that patients need to make ahead of treatment. Because this solution will be injected directly into the targeted area, people are often advised to minimize their use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) several weeks before their appointments. These include store-bought products such as aspirin and Ibuprofen. NSAIDs are natural blood thinners and can increase the likelihood of bruising and clotting issues.
It is also important to schedule your procedure well before any major event. Although there is no real downtime with this procedure, you want the solution to have ample time to do its work. The synthetic deoxycholic acid in Kybella® can take between four to six weeks to yield a visible reduction in submental fat.
How Long Do the Results Last?
The Kybella® double chin treatment is designed to produce permanent results. When you lose weight via diet and exercise, your fat cells shrink but remain in place. Conversely, this process destroys unwanted fat cells entirely. After your the treated submental fat has been metabolized and then routed out of your body, you won’t have to worry about your double chin reappearing.
