Kybella® is a cutting-edge injectable that has been approved by the FDA to treat submental fullness. These powerful injections contain synthetic ingredients that weaken and eventually destroy the fat cells underneath your chin. Within weeks of your first set of injections at our office in Thousand Oaks, you could begin to look years younger as your double chin melts away before your eyes.
Other Double Chin Treatments
For many people, finding accurate information on double chin treatments is extremely difficult. There are now hundreds of products on the market that claim they will eradicate submental fullness, but very few of those creams and ointments will have any impact on your appearance. Double chins are generally caused by excess fat that is deep below the skin, and most of those products won’t reach that tissue. Invasive treatments are another option, but patients should realize that the recovery period can be somewhat lengthy. Following a neck lift, you might have to sit in bed for weeks as your body recovers.
The Science Behind Kybella®
The primary active ingredient inside every injection of Kybella® is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid. Many years ago, doctors discovered that this unique substance is naturally made by our intestines to digest fatty foods. After extensive research, they were able to create concentrated doses of deoxycholic acid to spot treat fatty tissue. Within just weeks of being injected into the chin, the acid will begin to damage the fat cells so that they can be metabolized. Your body can then use the cells as energy and expel the remaining molecules.
What Will My Appointments Be Like?
Each appointment in Thousand Oaks is slightly different, but the average Kybella® treatment takes just minutes to complete. On average, patients need to have multiple treatments carried out to meet their cosmetic goals. Those appointments should be scheduled a set amount of time apart to give the product enough time to destroy the fatty tissue.
Just like any other cosmetic treatment, the results are dependent on many different variables. Patients who stay at a healthy weight and protect their skin from sun damage are often able to preserve the results for many years.
