5 Things You Should Know About Kybella
If you’re ready to get rid of your double chin, you might have heard of Kybella, the popular injectable treatment that diminishes stubborn fat around the jawline. Diet and exercise alone can be largely ineffective when it comes to a double chin, but until Kybella appeared, liposuction was one of the few effective ways to do anything about it.
Here are 5 important things you should know about Kybella, one of the most effective treatments for the dreaded double chin.
It’s a non-surgical alternative to liposuction
Liposuction removes fat with a surgical suction treatment, but it requires small incisions and significant downtime. A neck lift can also help get rid of fat under the chin, but again, the downtime is significant and there are incisions required.
Kybella is a minimally-invasive, non-surgical alternative to liposuction or other types of surgery. While there is some discomfort during the procedure, as small needles injects Kybella under the chin, there are no incisions and the treatment requires no downtime at all.
It’s made of a substance your body naturally creates
Kybella is manufactured in a sterile lab, made from a substance called deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is naturally generated within the body to digest fatty foods. The body uses this acid to destroys the walls of fat cells, breaking them down and cutting their ability to hold fat. When injected under your chin, the cell-walls of the fat cells that this area are destroyed. The body then naturally processes and disposes of these cells and flushes them out of the body.
Kybella is a safe, FDA-approved treatment that requires only injections to achieve the results. You will feel some discomfort during the procedure and some soreness for a couple of days afterward. There may be some swelling and bruising for about a week, and very rarely, some numbness or firmness in the injection area that will fade in about three weeks.
It takes some time to work
Kybella works naturally within your body, which is why it can take four to six weeks for the body to process and dispose of the dead cells in the typical way that the body does with any waste. However, once the cells are flushed out, they will not return.
It might take more than one treatment to completely eliminate your double chin
For many people whose sub-mental fat is not extensive, one treatment is enough to achieve their full results. For those who have much more extensive fat buildup under the chin, more treatments will be needed, up to four treatments to completely eliminate the fat. Treatments are performed 8-10 weeks apart.
