Millions of us struggle with a double chin. Once one shows up, it can be nearly impossible to get rid of it. Not that long ago, people only had the option of painful and expensive surgery. Now, technological advances have allowed for the development of Kybella®, a ground-breaking technology for addressing a double chin. This injection can help stimulate your body to break down and absorb fat in a very natural, safe way. We at Plastic and Cosmetic Center of South Texas are proud to provide this aesthetic treatment and encourage you to learn more about it.
How Does Kybella® Work?
Kybella® injections contain a quantity of deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is something that our bodies naturally make in order to process fat. When you have this treatment done, Kybella® is injected directly into the subcutaneous skin of the submental region – in other words, it is injected in your double chin. The injections target and then destroy fat cells in the area. Once the fat cells are destroyed, your body will naturally begin to flush them out. This very precise outpatient treatment takes approximately 15 minutes and will not affect the surrounding area.
Many people see their desired results after just one treatment. That being said, multiple treatments can be beneficial for some. Treatments need to be spaced out at least one month, and most patients experience desired results in as four sessions. These require little to no downtime, which means you can immediately resume your normal activities shortly after the procedure.
Who is a Good Candidate for Kybella® Treatments?
If you have moderate to severe excess fat under your chin, are in good overall health, and are looking to achieve a finer submental contour, you would be considered an ideal candidate for Kybella®.
