There are some areas of the body where fat deposits that diet and exercise have a difficult time reaching. One of those places is an area that has long plagued both men and women - under the chin. In the past, the only options to tighten and define this area were with surgery. Thankfully, scientific and medical advances have brought us an effective option that does not require surgery. Kybella treatments can help redefine your chin area to perfect your profile without all the pain and recovery time.
What is Kybella and How Does It Work?
Kybella is an injectable alternative treatment for double chin. Kybella is based on the body’s natural processes. A man-made form of an acid that’s produced by your body to help it absorb fats is injected into the problem area where it destroys the walls of the fat cells. The fat can then be absorbed and processed by your body, and with their walls destroyed, the cells will no longer be able to store fat.
How Much Time Does It Take?
The treatments themselves are very quick and easy, taking only about 15-20 minutes to perform. You should be able to resume your usual activities following treatment. You may experience some swelling in the treated area after the procedure. The severity varies from person to person, but is usually mild and will subside with time as your body goes through the process of flushing out the released fat, which can take up to two months. You’ll likely need two treatments, though some people may require up to six. It’s a minimal time investment that yields permanent results.
