As we get older, our facial structure starts to change. One of the biggest changes that we experience is a loss of facial fat in the middle of our face, as well as a shifting of the position of fat in our face. We start to develop an accumulation of fat along our jowls and underneath the chin. This accumulation of fat has a detrimental effect on our appearance. It makes us look older, it makes us look heavier and it just makes us look worn down. This is one of the reasons why so many people have turned to Kybella® as a way of helping them get rid of the fat that accumulates underneath the chin.
Kybella® is a relatively new non-surgical treatment that has been approved by the FDA to dissolve the fat under your chin. Before using this treatment, the only viable way to remove unwanted fat from underneath your chin was to use cosmetic surgery. With Kybella®, all you need is injections of deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a substance that is naturally in our bodies. It’s what our body uses to break down fat cells.
Once Kybella® is skillfully injected into your chin and the fat cells are broken down, they are eventually eliminated from your body through your body’s natural waste removal system. One of the nicest things about this treatment is that it is non-surgical. With a simple, minimally invasive procedure, the fat underneath your chin disappears permanently.
The safety of Kybella® is unquestionable. The injections were used in clinical trials on more than 1,000 patients. Kybella® was overwhelmingly proven to be safe and effective in getting rid of the dreaded double chin in these patients. Because the fat cells are destroyed, the results are semi-permanent. The fat cells are removed from your body, and so it is impossible for them to return. The individuals who were part of the clinical trial were visited two years later and they were still free of fat underneath their chin.
