The dreaded double chin is a cosmetic issue that almost everyone will have to deal with at some point in their life. Not only does a double chin make an individual look heavier than they really are, but it will also make them look older.
If you are tired of your double chin but are not ready for an invasive surgery, then you might want to take a look at the advanced new treatment known as Kybella™.
Surgery Isn’t for Everyone
Thousands of neck lifts are carried out every single year, but these surgeries aren’t for everyone. In addition to the higher costs, patients will also have to plan on resting for upwards of three weeks after their surgery.
They will then need to schedule additional appointments in order to have the incisions fully sutured shut. Even after all of this work, there is still the possibility of surgery scars near the patient’s ears or along their jaw.
Kybella™ provides patients with many of the same benefits of a neck lift without the need for incisions, sutures or a lengthy recovery.
Within every Kybella™ injection is a patented synthetic form of a unique solution. This substance is produced by the human body in smaller amounts, but researchers have found that higher doses can actually melt fat away.
It accomplishes this by affecting the membrane of the fat cells while leaving the other soft tissue unaffected. When the fat cells have been weakened, the patient’s body will actually break them down and then either expel them or burn them for energy.
Practically anyone who is struggling with an extra pocket of fatty tissue under their chin will make a great candidate for this treatment.
What to Expect During Your Appointment
Preparing for Kybella™ requires nothing more than a quick medical screening carried out by our specialist. The specialist will need to ensure that you do not have skin conditions that could affect the injections.
After the initial examination, the treatment itself generally takes under one hour. Fortunately, patients need to do nothing more than clean their skin before the injection sites are marked.
Depending on the amount of fat under the patient’s chin, they might require up to three appointments spread across three or four months.
Creating Long-Term Results
Since Kybella™ actually breaks down the fat cells, the results can be permanent as long as the patient sticks to a healthy diet and exercise plan.
Within a matter of time, you could eradicate your double chin for good and once again feel confident in your appearance.
