Kybella® is a unique way to get rid of a double chin because it's an injectable treatment rather than a surgical one. Kybella specifically targets fat in the area under the chin to create an impressive new look. Younique Cosmetic Surgery and Med Spa in Santa Monica, California offers both surgical and non-surgical options like Kybella for patients who want to enhance their appearance and improve their self esteem.
Kybella is the first treatment to be Federal Drug Administration (FDA) approved for the elimination of fat in the submental area. Submental fat, better known as a double chin, can really take away from an otherwise beautiful face, and Kybella can eliminate the issue. Kybella is delivered via a quick series of injections with extremely fine needles. The products destroys unwanted fat permanently, whereas weight loss will only shrink the fat cells but leave them intact.
Kybella's active ingredient is deoxycholic acid. This acid is already found in the body, as it's used by the digestive system to break down fats. Because deoxycholic acid is already present in the body, it's completely safe for use and there are no worries about allergic reactions to the product.
The treatment process is quite fast, normally taking only around 20 minutes. Kybella treatment can even be scheduled in a lunch hour.
Results from Kybella treatment are revealed gradually. After the injections, the product starts to work, agitating the fat cells to kick-start their exit from the body. Over a couple of weeks following treatment, patients start to notice a reduction in submental fat.
Most people need a series of Kybella treatments to get the optimal results. Generally, patients need to have 2-4 sessions in total, with each session being spaced around 6 weeks apart. In some situations, as many as 6 treatment sessions may be needed to achieve the desired transformation.
Kybella is a highly effective way to remove double chins, but it's not the only option. Younique Cosmetic Surgery and Med Spa also offers surgical liposuction, which provides immediate results at a higher cost. Liposuction also requires recovery time, while Kybella doesn't. In some cases, laser treatment can be used to tighten the neck skin, which can help eliminate the double chin. However, laser treatments are most effective for double chins when they are used in combination with Kybella treatment.
