What Is Submental Fullness?
Are you bothered by the appearance of your chin and jawline? The way your chin and jawline look can be easily altered by even a small amount of fat accumulation in the area under the chin. This issue is known as submental fullness and is commonly referred to as a double chin.
One of the most frustrating things about submental fullness is that you do not need to be overweight to develop the issue. Weight gain can result in fat accumulation under the chin, but other factors like the effects of aging, sun damage, hormone loss and your genetic makeup are also responsible. Some people may not experience submental fullness until later in their lives, while others may have had a noticeable double chin for a majority of their lives.
Getting rid of submental fullness can be a real challenge. Eating a proper diet and exercising regularly are effective methods for losing weight, but they cannot be used to precisely target the fat under your chin. Surgical procedures like liposuction can be used to drain away the fat, but many people are uncomfortable with surgery and are in need of a non-surgical solution to their double-chin issue.
The Unique Power of Kybella
Kybella is a revolutionary product that exemplifies just how far science and medicine have come in the world of non-surgical aesthetic treatments. Its formula has been expertly engineered to specifically target and reducing submental fullness.
Kybella’s special formula includes a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a substance that is naturally found within the body. Deoxycholic acid is responsible for helping to break down dietary fat cells so that they can be absorbed and then discarded by the body. It is this function that makes deoxycholic acid the ideal choice for reducing submental fullness.
In addition to this, the treated fat cells are reduced by the deoxycholic acid, meaning they can no longer grow in volume. This makes Kybella a lasting solution to your submental fat issues.
The Treatment Process
Prior to your Kybella treatment, the area under your chin will be closely examined to determine the extent of the issue. This information will be used to figure out how many injections will be needed and where the injection sites will be located. The number of injections needed will vary between people based on the amount of fat in the area and the patient’s aesthetic goals for their treatment.
Multiple Kybella treatments may be required before you attain your ideal results. Patients with a higher amount of excess fat and those who want more dramatic results will greatly benefit from additional Kybella treatments.
Because Kybella is a non-surgical treatment, there is no lengthy recovery period. You will likely experience some bruising, swelling, redness, and numbness under the chin. These issues will subside over the next few weeks.
