Many people lead healthy lifestyles by eating a balanced diet and exercising regularly. Despite reaching a healthy target weight, they might experience some stubborn pockets of fat on their chins that diet and exercise alone won’t diminish.
If you’re experiencing a double chin despite being otherwise fit and healthy, the good news is you don’t need to put up with it any longer. Renew MD, a medical spa in Reno, NV, offers Kybella® – an injectable cosmetic solution to diminish double chins.
What Is Kybella®?
Kybella® is an FDA-approved injectable cosmetic treatment that targets submental fat – the medical term for a double chin. Kybella® works by destroying fat cells on the chin, rendering them disabled permanently.
The Kybella® injectable treatment has deoxycholic acid as its active ingredient. Deoxycholic acid is a substance that’s also produced naturally by the body to decrease the appearance of fat hanging below the chin.
When injected into the target area, the deoxycholic acid in Kybella® gets to work, destroying the submental fat cells on your chin and eventually diminishing your double chin.
How Long Will Your Kybella® Results Last?
One of the questions that most people new to Kybella® have is how long the results of the treatment will last. When you have Kybella® injections, the treatment does two things: it kills existing submental fat and gives you more contoured jawline.
The results of Kybella® (the removal of existing submental fat cells) are permanent. At Renew MD, we recommend that our clients ideally have two to three treatment sessions, spaced four to six weeks apart, to achieve optimal results.
When the deoxycholic acid in Kybella® gets to work, the destroyed fat cells get absorbed by the body’s metabolic system naturally.
Benefits of Kybella®
When clients can’t get rid of submental fat through normal healthy eating and exercising, Kybella® can provide a unique and versatile solution to the problem.
Kybella® is a safe, FDA-approved treatment that helps create a slimmer facial contour. It’s minimally invasive, as the process involves injecting a fine needle into your chin.
Another benefit of Kybella® is how it’s a non-surgical treatment. When you have Kybella®, you don’t need any cosmetic surgery to correct your double chin, nor will you need other surgical procedures conducted.
You also don’t need to worry about taking time off work for your Kybella® treatments because there is no downtime associated with it. Plus, each treatment only takes 30 minutes to complete, and you’re free to resume your daily activities afterward.
Best Candidates for Kybella®
You could be a good candidate for Kybella® if you lead a healthy lifestyle by eating a balanced diet, exercising regularly, and have reached a healthy target weight.
Kybella® is not a substitute for conventional weight loss methods. It’s only a treatment designed to eradicate submental fat (a double chin reduction).
