If you have ever tried to lose excess fat beneath your chin through diet and exercise, you know how frustrating it can be. Submental fullness, a more technical term for a double chin, is an issue that upsets many people. Rather than resort to surgery, more and more adults are turning to Kybella®. This is a revolutionary double chin treatment that can permanently destroy fat cells underneath the chin, giving you the facial profile you desire.

How Kybella® Works

Deoxycholic acid is something that your body makes naturally in your intestines. It is very useful for breaking down and absorbing the dietary fat there. Kybella® is essentially a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid. When you have this treatment done, highly precise and strategic injections are made. Once injected, the synthetic deoxycholic acid begins to attack the membranes of the fat cells. Your body can then do its job and flush out the contents these cells have been hoarding.

Destroyed fat cells will never be able to store fat again. What’s even better is the fact that your body stopped creating new fat cells when you were a teenager. As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, there is no reason that your results could not be permanent.

Once you have had a consultation, a treatment plan can be created. This helps us determine how many injections will need to be made. When it comes time for treatment, the injections can be carried out using specialized techniques. Results are not instantaneous, but rather gradual and very natural-looking.
