It is understandable that you are concerned about looking your best. You understand that the way you look affects the way you feel about yourself, and it definitely affects the way that others treat you. When you like the way that you look, you have more confidence. That confidence goes a long way in affecting the quality of your life. When you do not like the way you look, you feel withdrawn, you feel self-conscious, and this also is reflected in the quality of your life.
If you were to ask people what aspects of their appearance they would like to change, you would note that a large portion of the population feels uncomfortable with their double chin. That stands to reason simply because your double chin changes the profile of your face. It makes your face look heavy, it makes you look older, and it detracts from your overall appearance.
Maybe you’ve noticed this either with yourself or with friends or family. A person could be relatively thin and they could be in relatively good shape, but if they have a double chin, they look heavy.
A few years ago, the only option that was available for individuals who had a double chin was to get some form of liposuction surgery. Liposuction worked perfectly for many individuals. However, there are individuals who do not wish to have a surgical procedure done.
Now, there is a new option for individuals who want to address their double chin without surgery. This option is Kybella®. Kybella® is an FDA approved noninvasive procedure designed to reduce chin fat. It is a nonsurgical procedure that relies on a series of injections. This means that you’re able to address your double chin without using anesthesia and without having a large amount of downtime.
Kybella® is administered in a series of injections that are given over a few months. The number of injections that you get during each treatment is going to vary depending on the size of the area that you want to treat and the severity of the submental fullness you are having treated.
Kybella® uses a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is something that your body already naturally produces. It helps your body to get rid of dietary fat. This means that the chance of having a negative reaction to Kybella® is very low because it simply uses something that your body already makes.
The deoxycholic acid starts to break down the fat in the treated area. Over the course of the injections, you will start to notice a reduction in the amount of fat underneath your chin. Now, since the fat cells are destroyed with the treatment, the Kybella® procedure is permanent. The fat cells don’t grow back, and as long as you maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine, the double chin does not return.
