Kybella is a new injectable treatment that melts away the excess fat that causes double chins. The substance is a man-made form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring material that helps the body absorb fat. Double chins can be a pesky problem area, but with Kybella you can destroy the fat cells contributing to this unflattering phenomenon.
If you've tried every diet and exercise plan imaginable but still struggle with unwanted neck and chin fat, you aren't alone. Many people who eat healthy and have no problem toning their arms, legs and abs still find it difficult to eradicate the fat around their submental area. This low hanging, fleshy region is often referred to as a "double chin."
With Kybella, you can eliminate the need for liposuction or other invasive fat-elimination techniques. Through a series of injections, Kybella mimics the body's natural fat-absorption process and leaves you with a sleek and slim chin area that's picture perfect.
Formerly known as ATX-101, Kybella is a synthetic version of the naturally occuring molecule deoxycholic acid, which is produced by the human body in our own intestines for the break down and absorbtion of dietary fats. This breakthrough treatment has been the focus of a global program involving over 20 clinical studies involving over 2,600 patients.
When Kybella is injected into the subcutaneous (beneath the skin) fat of the submental (under the neck) region, the membranes of the targeted fat cells are destroyed. Once destroyed, the cells are no longer able to store fat. The destruction of these cells is then followed by the body's natural elimination and healing process. This process is slow but steady, and the fat cells are typically removed from the area within 4 to six weeks after receiving injections.
The number of treatments required varies based on your desired chin profile, however after the desired aesthetic response is achieved, retreatment is not expected.
Without the fullness associated with fat cells in the double chin region, guests treated with Kybella may achieve a younger, leaner, look, as a result of a more balanced facial appearance.
