Men and women who avoid the camera may be doing so because of their double chin. Regardless of one’s overall weight, a double chin may form due to genetics. This excess fat is medically known as “submental fullness” and at one point, could only be addressed with plastic surgery. With continued medical advances, patients in the area of San Francisco, California now have the opportunity to address their double chin with a safe and effective injectable called Kybella.
What Is Kybella And How Does It Work?
Kybella is the first and only cosmetic injectable that can be used in combating the double chin. Kybella is formulated with an ingredient called deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid can break down fat cells where it is injected, resulting in gradual fat loss on the chin and neck area. Kybella is the only injectable available on the market that has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of submental fullness, and continues to be a popular alternative to more invasive procedures. With the reduction of a double chin, patients enjoy a more defined profile and boosted self-confidence.
Who Is A Candidate For Kybella?
Most patients with submental fullness are considered appropriate candidates. Patients should book a consultation appointment and initial evaluation with Dr. Anthony Waechter at Aura Skin Spa to decide if they are a good fit for this or other solutions.
How Long Do The Results From Kybella Last?
Kybella injections take time to work. Patients will notice over several weeks the reduction of fat in the area. While one appointment can provide results, most patients will benefit from several injections spaced weeks apart. Once the fat cells have been destroyed in that area, they do not return, ultimately making Kybella results permanent. However, the existing fat cells in the chin and neck area may expand if patients do not closely follow proper diet and exercise recommendations following treatment.
