Are you tired of avoiding photographs and trying to hide behind high-collared shirts due to your double chin? If so, it may be time to consider Kybella. Kybella is a breakthrough treatment that eliminates fat beneath the chin (submental fullness) without surgery! Read on to learn more about Kybella and what it can do for you.
What is it?
Kybella is an injectable treatment made up of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule that breaks down dietary fat. During treatment, your injector will map out the treatment area using a surgical marker. Then, a number of injections will be placed into the double chin. The number of injections will vary depending on the amount of submental fullness that needs to be eliminated. Most patients will require a series of injections to achieve best results.
After a Kybella treatment, there is no downtime needed. Swelling, tenderness, and bruising at the injection sites may occur, but should reduce over the course of a week. Elimination of your double chin, with no downtime? What could be better?
Who Can Benefit?
Both men and women 18 years and older who are unhappy with their double chins can benefit from Kybella. The best way to determine if Kybella is right for you is through a consultation with Dr. Ehrmantraut.
