A double chin is something that nobody wants, ever! If you are troubled with excess fat cells under the chin, we would suggest you to opt for KYBELLA®.
Often the signs of aging are distinct for people. Some people struggle with wrinkles and fragile skin while the others are perturbed by a pesky neck especially the joint where neck and chin meet. Also known as submental space, this area is most likely to store fat which is often hard to get rid of. This can make you look obese even if you aren’t.
There is no guarantee of specific results, and the results can vary.
As “spot-reduction” is a myth and you cannot tone this area with diet and exercise, getting rid of submental fat often ask for surgeries including liposuction or neck lift. However, the surgeries pose their side effects. A breakthrough in the league is an injectable fat eliminating treatment, KYBELLA®. Approved by FDA in 2015, this procedure has been providing great results to our clients. In fact, the treatment is dubbed as a ‘miracle shot’ for eliminating that excess chin fat.
We at Aspira Body offer best-in-class KYBELLA® solutions to help people kiss goodbye to their ‘double chin’ issue. Here are the top advantages of KYBELLA® treatment :
1. It is Designed for Submental Fat
KYBELLA® is the only treatment that is created specifically to reduce submental fat.
This non-surgical procedure is based on deoxycholic acid; a naturally occurring substance in the body that breaks down fat. Once injected into the submental area, it performs the same function without disturbing other cells. While other surgical procedures including liposuction can cause scarring, bruising, or swelling, KYBELLA® can get rid of these side effects by avoiding invasive measures.
With KYBELLA® you can expect your chin to be toned in the exact way that you want!
2. It is a Non-Invasive Procedure
Traditional methods of fat reduction including neck lifts or liposuction are an effective way to get rid of submental fat. Nevertheless, these procedures pose some risks worth consideration.
The outcome of surgery largely depends on the age, health, and lifestyle of an individual which overall impacts the recovery time. The surgery can also draw you from daily activities to recover completely. These surgeries are beneficial if a large amount of fat has to be reduced. However, if your only concern is submental fat, KYBELLA® provides an effective non-invasive procedure without any complications of surgery.
3. No Recovery Time Needed
A lot of people shy away from surgery due to a long recovery time. For instance, a neck lift requires a week or two away from work with minimal activity. On the other hand, liposuction comes with a strict five days bed rest. In addition to this, you may have to take extra care to avoid stretching your neck for a few days after the procedure.
The best part about KYBELLA® is that it eliminates your recovery time. The only side effect you will notice is a little swelling in the area which subsides within 48 hours. You will be able to resume your work on the same day and carry out your daily activities without further ado.
4. It Provides Long-Lasting Results
KYBELLA® with the help of deoxycholic acid targets the fat cells of submental space. As the procedure targets on a cellular level, it is effective in the long term as compared to any other procedure. The cells once destroyed cannot be regenerated. New cells will be formed in the targeted area in minimal time. Your surgeon will provide you with some dos and don’ts after your surgery to avoid the formation of fat cells in your chin.
KYBELLA® is one of the simplest solutions to get rid of submental fat and contour your chin, neck, and jaw line. As the procedure focuses on a natural substance found in the body, the risks and side effects are also low. In addition to this, it is effective, long-lasting, with minimal recovery time.
KYBELLA® is a prescription medicine and is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.”
It is not known if KYBELLA® is safe and effective for use outside of the submental area or in children less than 18 years of age.
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, and once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. This results in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin, revealing an improved chin profile.
Your specialist will create a tailored treatment plan based on your chin profile. At each treatment, you will be given multiple small injections under your chin. You may receive up to 6 treatment sessions, spaced at least 1 month apart. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 KYBELLA® treatments. 59% of patients received 6 treatments in clinical studies.
When injected into fat under the chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After reaching your desired aesthetic, further treatment is not expected.
Though Kybella® is nonsurgical, some common side effects include pain, swelling, bruising, redness, and numbness. The recovery process associated with Kybella® is minimal in most cases, and downtime varies from person to person. Minor side effects typically subside in one to two weeks.
