Kybella: Is It For Me?
- Posted on: Oct 15 2018
As fall comes to visit us in the northern hemisphere, do you find yourself looking a little too much like the squirrels gathering nuts for winter? So many of us have a little extra fat under our chins that make our faces look bigger, and make us look heavier than we actually are. This is especially true for people who have a genetic predisposition for under-chin fat, or a double-chin. If diet and exercise aren’t helping you lose that little extra chin, keep reading to learn about an amazing, non-surgical option: Kybella.
What is Kybella?
Kybella is a fairly new procedure that involves a cosmetic injectable instead of a surgical procedure to help remove unwanted fat from under the chin area. Kybella utilizes deoxycholic acid to help your body break down stubborn fat under the chin, and helps you keep it off. The solution is injected at the site, where it goes to work helping break down fat without the need for Liposuction or other invasive surgery.
Who is a good candidate?
If you have a genetic predisposition towards under-chin fat, eat well and exercise, or simply are bothered by the fat under your chin, you are likely a good candidate for Kybella.
The procedure is straightforward and short. A series of injections are given across the site over a few short minutes. These injections then start going to work, breaking down fat cells. Your body starts to whisk them away, and your lymph system can get rid of them as with other waste.
You may have some swelling initially after the treatment is completed.
How until I see results?
After your first treatment, you will likely have swelling that peaks around 24 hours after your injections. This swelling may last a few days or a few weeks, depending on the individual. This is because the solution is breaking down the fat cells, and encouraging them to leave! You may see the best results a few months after your treatments.
How many treatments are suggested?
As with many beautifying treatments, multiple visits may be required to see the best results. Overall, expect at least two treatments to see the best results from your Kybella.
