In case you haven’t heard, there’s a new fat-dissolving treatment in town – one that delivers permanent, life-changing results.
Kybella is a brand-new, FDA-approved treatment that’s exclusively designed to dissolve fat underneath the chin. Chin fat has long been a trouble spot for many individuals, especially as it’s almost impossible to directly target the chin for fat loss. What’s more, the proclivity for developing chin fat is often genetic, meaning some people may have more trouble than others losing that unwanted fat.
If your chin fat is a constant source of embarrassment for you, it may be time to learn more about how a Kybella treatment can help. Here’s what you need to know about this exciting new treatment:
- Kybella is comprised of deoxycholic acid, a unique compound that’s found naturally within the body. When injected into the chin, the acid dissolves away unwanted fat cells, which are then permanently removed via the body’s waste processes.
- Kybella is only approved by the FDA for the treatment of unwanted chin fat, as the injections on any other parts of the body are off-label.
- Occasionally, it may take two injections to get your desired results; however, once these results are achieved, fat loss is permanent. Of course, that comes with the caveat that you must maintain your current weight to continue enjoying those results. Should you gain weight after your Kybella treatment, new fat cells may emerge in the chin area.
- You may want to combine your Kybella injections with skin-tightening treatments, especially if you have sagging skin or significant chin fat. While Kybella dissolves the fat cells, it doesn’t affect skin laxity; therefore, once the fat is gone, sagging skin may be even more pronounced along the jawline and neck areas. Your plastic surgeon will discuss if skin-tightening treatments should be combined with Kybella injections for the best results possible.
