There are so many people who are troubled with their double chin. Are you one of them? Do you feel embarrassed and less confident because of it? If so, it may help to learn that a double chin doesn’t have to be permanent. It can be treated. To decide on your ideal treatment option, it’s best to first learn more about what can cause a double chin.
What Leads to the Formation of a Double Chin?
A double chin is an excess of fatty tissue in the submental area. But what leads to its formation? An extra layer of fat often accumulates in the region just underneath the chin when people start gaining weight. This abnormality can also come about due to genetics.
What Is the Best Way to Treat a Double Chin?
A double chin can be effectively treated with the help of Kybella. Kybella is one of the best options to choose from, as the chin area cannot easily be reduced in volume with the help of exercise. If you are in doubt about the safety of the treatment then you should know that Kybella is an FDA-approved treatment procedure that has been rigorously clinically tested.
This is an entirely non-surgical procedure. During the treatment, injections of Kybella are given in key points under your chin. The Kybella destroys the fat cells. It’s important to remember that this is not a weight-loss treatment. This treatment is only implemented to reduce the fat cells under the chin and cannot be used on other parts of the body.
Kybella contains deoxycholic acid. In its natural state, this acid is found in the human body, and its sole function is to eliminate fat. Kybella is administered from outside to increase the submental region’s reserve of deoxycholic acid, which in turn eliminates the double chin. It targets only the fat cells, destroying them without causing any damage to the surrounding cells.
How Is the Kybella Treatment Performed?
The Kybella injections are given directly in the area where they are needed: under the chin. Around six sessions of treatment are generally required to achieve prominent results. However, the number of sessions may vary.
First, to avoid pain and discomfort, the treatment area is made numb, either with the help of ice packs or any topical medicine that helps in numbing. Then the injection spots are marked out so that the injection can be given precisely to the locations where it is needed. The time each session requires is usually around one hour. The number of sessions required by each patient is case specific and will be determined by your doctor.
Kybella is a cosmetic medical breakthrough and is at the forefront of non-surgical minimally invasive double-chin removal. It is not only safe but also effective. No downtime is required after the treatment.
