If a double chin is keeping you from feeling your best, know that there is a solution that can help you feel more confident, and, even better, get rid of your double chin for good. At Verve Weight Loss & Laser Aesthetics in Upland, CA, we can help improve your profile by removing the stubborn fat beneath your chin that causes that dreaded double chin. We are proud to offer Kybella, a cosmetic injectable that will destroy those fat cells and give you confidence.
All About Kybella
Kybella is a cosmetic injectable that contains an active ingredient called deoxycholic acid, a molecule that occurs naturally in the human body. Deoxycholic acid’s role is to breakdown dietary fat, which is the fat that is found in the foods you eat, and to help your body effectively absorb that fat. The creators of Kybella found an effective way to use this active ingredient to aid in the breakdown of fat under the chin that creates the fullness known as the double chin.
What Is a Double Chin?
The technical term for a double chin is submental fullness. This accumulation of fat cells beneath the chin can be caused by weight gain or by genetics. Some of the fittest people still suffer from submental fullness due to their genetic makeup, and now there is finally a treatment that can help them achieve their goals. If you’ve recently lost weight and have reached your goal weight but still have a double chin, this treatment will help you get rid of it for good.
How Does Kybella Work?
Kybella is administered under the chin to destroy the fat cells that exist in the area at the time of treatment. When injected into the double chin, it kills the fat cells and disables them from storing fat. The body then removes these dead fat cells over time, resulting in a gradual reduction of the fullness in the area. Your double chin will be gone permanently, and you won’t have to undergo any additional treatments to maintain your results.
What Happens During Treatment?
Only those who are trained to administer this treatment can do so. At Verve Weight Loss & Laser Aesthetics, our injectors are trained to administer this treatment and are ready to help you reach all of your aesthetic goals. During your treatment, your injector will administer several injections into the area beneath your chin. Once these injections are administered, your appointment will be complete and you’ll be on your way to a beautiful profile.
How Long Do Treatments Take?
Cosmetic injectable appointments are typically relatively quick, and this treatment is no different. The injection process only takes 15 to 20 minutes to complete. You won’t have to spend all day at your appointment; you’ll be in and out and able to accomplish everything on your daily to-do list.
How Many Injections Will I Need?
The total injections needed to achieve desired results varies from patient to patient. Different patients have different amounts of fat beneath their chin, and this affects how many injections are needed for the best results. During your initial consultation, one of our experts will be able to tell you exactly what you can expect from the treatment and will tell you approximately how many injections you will need to get the best results.
How Long Does It Take to See Results?
This treatment relies on the body for results. Once Kybella is injected into your double chin, your fat cells will be destroyed and the body will gradually flush them from your system. It will take some time for the body to naturally remove these cells, but once it does, you’ll be rid of your double chin and have a beautiful, aesthetically pleasing profile. Typically, those who undergo this treatment experience results within two to four months post-treatment. The total number of treatments needed to see results varies among patients, but patients shouldn’t receive more than six treatments spaced one month apart. Many patients see the best results after two to four treatments. We’ll develop a treatment plan that’s right for your needs, inclusive of the necessary number of treatments for the best results.
What Are the Benefits?
There are many benefits associated with this treatment that make it an effective option for those who want to get rid of their double chin but have been unable to do so on their own. If exercise and eating a healthy diet haven’t made a difference in the appearance of your double chin, this treatment will. If you don’t want anyone to know you underwent treatment for your chin, they won’t have to. Results are gradual, so your double chin will fade slowly. Other benefits are that appointment times are quick, results are proven, and the treatment uses a natural ingredient that the body is familiar with to get results. It relies on the abilities of the body to properly deal with the destroyed fat cells and remove them so that you’re left with a beautiful, sculpted profile.
