Everyone has to make the decision to either live with a part of their appearance they do not like, or to do something about it. Thanks to cosmetic procedures that are abundantly available nowadays, individuals can do a lot to improve their appearance. Individuals can fix their nose, get an eyelid lift, treat dynamic wrinkles, use dermal fillers to treat a loss of facial volume and do a wide variety of other things to make them look younger and improve their appearance.
What is Kybella®?
A relative newcomer to the market is Kybella®. This is a product that has been approved by the FDA to eliminate chin fat. The question is, will you use it to get rid of your double chin, or will you continue to be concerned about a part of your appearance that you simply do not like?
The more people learn about Kybella®, the more they see that it is a safe product that can allow them to completely say goodbye to their double chin. In the past, more invasive procedures were used to get rid of chin fat. For example, it was very common for individuals to visit a cosmetic professional to receive liposuction to get rid of fat under the chin. However, this is a very serious decision since it is a surgical procedure.
Incisions are made into the skin, which means that there is always the risk of scarring and infection, and recovery time is needed. Kybella® makes the decision of getting rid of a double chin much easier.
A Non-Invasive Procedure
Individuals who have used Kybella® have appreciated the fact that it is almost completely non-invasive. The product is simply injected under the chin. There is no cutting, no scarring and no downtime. A person can return to their normal activities immediately.
Most individuals will need to come to our office at least three times for Kybella® injections. Each session will be scheduled about a month apart.
Kybella® has only been approved to address problems with a double chin. It is not approved to be used on other parts of the body. It is unlikely that it will ever be approved to be used on larger areas since it is only effective on small areas.
