Ask most women and men about the best kinds of cosmetic treatments, and they will probably tell you that non-surgical, subtle, and discreet are what they prefer. For instance, let’s consider a double chin. It’s a common feature that most people really don’t like and want to be removed. Surgical liposuction with long recovery is an option, but minimally-invasive injections are an alternative that is turning heads in Alpharetta. Kybella® has become a revolutionary way to smooth away the chin fat and redefine the profile in the quietest manner available.
Melting the Chin Fat Cells Away
Kybella® treatments consist of injections that go to work on your double chin or submental fat. The formula used contains an active ingredient called deoxycholic acid. This is the same molecule found present in the human body that breaks down your dietary fat. When injected into the fat under your chin, the acid starts zapping your fat cells and destroying them permanently.
Our trained aesthetic specialist will mark a grid pattern under your chin to show the injection areas that are being targeted. Then, they will administer multiple small injections under your chin. Every patient’s double chin is different, and your Alpharetta specialist will determine how many Kybella® treatments you will need to achieve a new chin profile and your personal aesthetic goals.
Many clients require between two and four sessions to see significant results. Still, others go for six treatments for optimal results. These injection sessions are spaced one month apart.
Numerous Clinical Studies Performed
Kybella® injections have been around since 2015 when the drug first received FDA-approval. Since that time, more than 1,600 people were treated with Kybella® in a number of clinical studies. The majority of patients in the trials were 19 to 65 years old.
The studies showed that 79 percent of the participants treated with Kybella® had improved satisfaction with the appearance of their face and the area under their chin 12 weeks after their last treatment session.
Clients are happy with the procedure because no anesthesia or lengthy downtime is required. Redness, bruising and swelling at the injection site are normal and temporary side effects.
Submental fullness is not only caused by weight gain. A double chin can appear at any age and be due to genetics or getting older. If you’re frustrated by chin fat that just won’t budge no matter how disciplined your lifestyle is, there is another way. Kybella® injections have become one of the modern breakthrough treatments that deliver impressive results.
