Many people become extremely frustrated when they develop a double chin and find it does not respond to diet and exercise. A double chin, or a stubborn fat deposit under the jaw, can make people look older and heavier than they are. Most people assume such fat deposits are due to being overweight and that they can be eliminated by weight loss, but in actual fact such fat deposits are usually caused by an inherited tendency to store fat under the chin and they are highly resistant to lifestyle changes. These stubborn fat deposits can, however, be permanently eliminated by Kybella®.
With this treatment, you no longer have to deal with your frustrating double chin. Exercising and dieting may not work, but that doesn’t mean you have to live with it forever. At Advanced Aesthetics Salon & Medical Spa we offer this treatment to our patients to help you look and feel your best without the need for extensive surgery.
What is Kybella®?
Kybella® is an FDA-approved treatment for stubborn fat deposits underneath the chin area. It is injected into multiple locations in the fat deposit, and it then causes permanent destruction of the fat cells, eliminating the fat deposit. The active ingredient in Kybella® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring substance found in the body that is involved in fat metabolism.
What is the Treatment Like?
During the treatment, injections of Kybella® are delivered. Each treatment is fairly quick, and most people need multiple treatments spaced at monthly intervals to completely eliminate their double chin. Results are not immediately apparent after each treatment because it takes the body some time to break down and remove the destroyed fat cells.
Are Regular Treatments Necessary?
Kybella® permanently destroys the fat cells under the chin, and therefore the double chin will not recur even if the patient gains weight; thus, once the initial course of treatment is completed, no additional treatments should be necessary.
