Double chins are sometimes an unfortunate fact of life. It can seem impossible to get rid of one once it shows up. Luckily, there is a non-surgical double chin treatment for finally getting the results you have been dreaming of. Kybella® is an injection that is designed to mimic the way your body absorb fat.
How Do Kybella® Injections Work?
ATX-101, now known more commonly as Kybella®, is a synthetic version of a naturally-occurring molecule called deoxycholic acid. This acid is made in your intestines naturally to break down and absorb fat molecules.
To get rid of your double chin, Kybella® can be injected into the subcutaneous fat of the submental region. This is a fancy way of saying it is injected into the area under your chin. Kybella® targets and destroys the membranes of the fat cells. After this, your body will naturally eliminate the fat over time. These cells will not be able to store fat in the future.
The Kybella® Treatment Process
If you decide to go with Kybella® as a double chin treatment, know that it can be done in the comfort of our office. Injections will be made in the area under the chin. Many people will be satisfied with the results they see after one treatment. However, we may decide multiple treatments will be necessary to achieve your desired results. It all depends on the individual case.
