Does Kybella Really Get Rid Of A Double Chin?
Do you feel like the puffiness under your chin is taking over your facial profile? Do you think that your life would greatly improve if there was a way to get rid of your double chin forever? You're not alone. A survey that was done by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) found that 67% of people are bothered by an excess amount of fat under the chin and neck areas. The good news is that Kybella can be a great solution to get rid of this stubborn and unwanted fat.What is Kybella?
Kybella is a prescription medicine that is used in adults to improve the appearance of submental fullness. It is the first only FDA-approved non-surgical treatment that contours the appearance of this fullness. Kybella is a non-surgical office treatment that is roughly 15-20 minutes long. This treatment helps to destroy fat cells when it is injected into the fat that is beneath the chin. Once the customized aesthetic is reached, the procedure is not expected to be needed again.The Process
Overall, the Kybella procedure is a quick in-office trip. Before beginning the injections, Dr. Davis will use a marker to mark the site at which they are going to put the needle into. This area will be numbed with a topical numbing agent to decrease the chance of any possible pain during the treatment. Once this is over, there will be roughly 20-50 injections that occur under the chin. The synthetic deoxycholic acid then begins to work slowly to kill the fat cells in this area. This process is then metabolized by the body over the duration of a few weeks.Who Should Get Kybella?
- Anyone who may be bothered by fullness beneath the chin
- Those who do not want to have surgery
- Those who exercise but cannot lose their stubborn double chin
- Anyone who feels that this submental fat makes them look older or heavier
- Individuals that have good skin elasticity
It is normal for individuals to experience swelling after each session of Kybella that you have. Mild burning or soreness might be present at the site of each of the injections.Contact Dr. Davis If you're interested in getting the Kybella procedure done, please call us at 817-778-4444 today to set up an appointment with Dr. Mayli Davis.
