Countless people live with excess amounts of submental fat. This is fat that’s positioned at the top of the neck and directly beneath the chin. Commonly referred to as a double chin, excess submental fat can make a person look both heavier and older. Luckily, however, there’s now an incredibly effective and easy way to enhance the appearance of this common trouble zone. Kybella® is an FDA-approved injectable solution that can safely destroy fat cells under the chin to create a sleek and beautiful profile.
Why Choose Kybella®?
Unlike liposuction procedures, Kybella® does not entail any incisions. Comparatively, the treatments are also much lower in risk. With these procedures, there is little to no downtime and no fear of serious post-treatment issues. Once the solution has been injected into the targeted area, patients are free to go and can return to most all of their normal activities right away.
Many people struggle to get rid of submental fat through diet and exercise alone. It’s important to note, however, that weight loss in this fashion will always occur uniformly across the entire body. As such, whenever several pounds are dropped, all parts of the physique will grow smaller in relation to the others.
Spot reducing fat through diet and exercise is simply not possible. In the past, the only way to spot reduce fat stores was through invasive surgery. Now, however, Kybella® is making it possible for people to strategically slim this area of the body without any cutting or tissue removal.
How Kybella® Works
Kybella® is a prescription medicine that’s largely comprised of deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid permanently destroys fat cells across the treatment area by disrupting their membranes. As these cells die off, their fatty content is released, absorbed and metabolized by the body gradually over time.
