There are many potential causes of a double chin. Genetics seems to play a significant role. Aging and loss of skin elasticity can also be factors. Submental fullness, more commonly called a double chin, is an issue that does not discriminate. Both men and women can struggle to target this area using diet and exercise alone. This is why both sexes are turning in growing numbers to Kybella®, a non-surgical option for finally achieving the facial profile you have been wanting.
What is Kybella®?
Kybella® involves a series of injections made underneath the chin. It has been approved to treat submental fullness by the Food and Drug Administration since 2015. Made from a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, this product can destroy unwanted fat cells. When this occurs, your body is able to naturally flush out their contents. This treatment requires no surgery and results in minimal downtime.
Fat cells do not regenerate or get replaced once they are destroyed. Your body stopped creating new fat cells when you were in your teenage years. This means you get permanent results with Kybella® treatments.
Results with Kybella® take some time to develop. Your body will be hard at work in the following weeks getting rid of the fat. As a result, your improvements are very gradual and natural looking. No one will be able to tell that you had Kybella® done!
How Men and Women Can Benefit from Kybella®
Going with this treatment has many advantages over surgery. There are many factors that go into making Kybella® such a good option, including:
- Results are permanent
- It is a comfortable, expedient, and effective procedure, especially in comparison to surgeries
- Sculpting the jawline usually results in a more youthful appearance
- There is little to no recovery period required
