Submental fullness is the technical term for a very common problem. It means having a double chin, and it can happen to almost anyone despite their age or level of fitness. Not too long ago, the only way to address this issue was to have extensive plastic surgery. Luckily, we now have the revolutionary treatment option known as Kybella® at our disposal. Completely non-surgical yet highly effective, it may just be the double chin solution you have been waiting for to revitalize your facial profile.
How Does Kybella® Work?
Kybella® works by attacking and destroying fat cells underneath your chin. The injections are made from a synthetic version of a bile acid your body naturally creates. When it comes into contact with the target fat cells, it damages their structural integrity. This causes them to release their contents. At this point, your body steps in and will flush out the fat through natural processes. You no longer create new fat cells, meaning you should require no follow-up treatments once your optimal results are reached.
The Kybella® Treatment Process
The first step is to come in for a consultation to ensure that this is the proper treatment option for you. It may take more than one treatment session in order to reach your profile goals. The maximum number of sessions is six and at least one month must pass in between appointments. This is to allow your body ample time to get rid of the fat that has been released.
The number of injections required will vary depending on the amount of submental fullness you are trying to eliminate. Your treatment will take approximately 15 to 20 minutes. Many people choose to have their Kybella® injections done on their lunch break since there is no downtime afterward. Results will develop gradually and appear very natural. Visual improvements typically appear a number of weeks after your treatment.
