Effective Double Chin Reduction
The latest and most completely non-invasive treatment option for the excess fat that causes double chins is an injectable solution called Kybella. Recently FDA approved for treating submental fat,
Kybella contains a substance called deoxycholic acid, which naturally occurs in the human body and works to break down fat cells.
Kybella is a non-invasive option compared to traditional treatments for saggy chins, which include surgery and liposuction. The procedure involves only a series of strategically placed injections into the fatty tissue under the chin, in some cases as many as 50 injections. In total, the procedure takes no more than 20 minutes and may cause side effects such as bruising, swelling, redness, and even numbness in the treated area. However, these side effects are minor and disappear within a day or two.
The injections essentially destroy fat cells, which are then reabsorbed by the body, resulting in a smooth, more defined chin area. It is recommended that patients undergo two to six sessions, spaced out once a month, in order to achieve full results, which can take up to four to six weeks after the finally session. However, once complete, patients rare need any touch ups or retreatments as Kybella effectively prevents the fat cells from accumulating and storing fat again.
It’s important to remember, however, that Kybella is not an ideal treatment for everyone. Kybella can only target fat cells, therefore, double chins that are caused by excess, loose skin, another treatment, such as Ultherapy, may be necessary to achieve the desired results.
