For many people, exercise and diet are just not enough. Stubborn fat deposits found under the chin, commonly known as a double chin, often require some form of cosmetic intervention to remove. Thankfully, Kybella® exists.
Causes of Double Chin
A double chin develops when excessive fat forms under the chin. Numerous factors can contribute to the appearance of a double chin. By understanding how a double chin forms, we can focus on getting rid of the problem itself.
Age is one of the main factors that leads to the development of a double chin. And although excessive weight gain does not always lead to a double chin, it can be a factor contributing to it. Diets high in unhealthful fats, processed foods, and calories can lead to weight gain and the development of a double chin.
What is Kybella®?
Kybella® has recently become extremely popular as a non-surgical treatment method for removing a double chin. Approved by the FDA in 2015, many patients are turning towards the procedure as a good alternative to liposuction for this stubborn problem.
The Kybella® treatment process involves the injection of something called deoxycholic acid. This naturally-occurring substance destroys fat cells when injected. After the fat cells have been destroyed, your body will safely flush them out of your system.
Is Kybella® Right for You?
The best way to find out if you would make a good candidate for Kybella® treatment is to set up an initial consultation with us at Derm Aesthetica Med Spa. Most people with a double chin qualify for Kybella® treatment. You may make a good candidate if you are an adult with skin that is not too loose and require treatment for stubborn fat that is unresponsive to diet or exercise.
