Double chin or submental fullness is a common issue encountered by both men and women. Weight gain, genetics and aging are the factors that can contribute to this problem. Sometimes, even if you are fit, healthy and young, some stubborn fat remain in the chin area. Premier Medical Aesthetix offers Kybella®, the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment for adults with moderate to severe fat under the chin.
What is Kybella®?
Approved for use in 2015, Kybella® is a relatively new prescription medicine made of synthetic deoxycholic acid, a fat digestion aid molecule that naturally occurs in the body. This treatment is a great option if you are looking to eliminate double chin and improve your profile or appearance of your chin and if you want to have a tighter looking neckline. Kybella ® is also suitable for people looking for a non-invasive solution for their submental fat. It will surely give you a confidence boost when looking at yourself in the mirror and during picture-taking.
Here are some of the key benefits of using KYBELLA®:
- It is FDA-approved effective treatment for double chin
- The results are permanent, if you maintain a healthy weight
- Each treatment session will only take about 15 minutes
- Unlike liposuction, Kybella® is a non-invasive procedure
- Improves your profile and chin appearance
How It Works
Treatment plans are tailored for each patient’s individual needs. During a treatment session, Kybella® is injected directly on the chin area. This causes a reaction that permanently destroys the fat cells under the chin, leading to long-lasting results. The deoxycholic acid will help breakdown and absorb the fat around the chin/neck area. It normally takes most patients are required to undergo two to four treatment sessions to achieve the desirable results.
What to Expect
After each treatment session, patients may experience mild pain, swelling, bruising, redness, and numbness around the chin area for about 5-7 days. Significant results will start to show anywhere from one to four weeks after completing all the required treatment sessions. These results should remain permanent for as long as you keep a healthy lifestyle and diet.
