There are a lot of people in Thousand Oaks who are very frustrated with their double chin. They want to do something about it, but they’re not interested in having surgical procedures performed. For these individuals, Kybella® is an awesome option to help them get rid of submental fat. Submental fat is the fat that’s underneath the chin.
If you feel frustrated about your double chin and you want to do something about it, you should know that you are not alone. It is estimated that up to 80 percent of people who have a double chin want to do something about it. In fact, many have been so bothered by their double chin that they have sought out professional help in order to fix it.
Traditionally, a double chin was treated surgically with liposuction. But there are a whole host of reasons why many people do not feel that liposuction is the best option for them when it comes to addressing their double chin. Thankfully, since the 2015 approval by the FDA of Kybella®, this non-surgical option has helped people safely get rid of their double chin.
Kybella® is an injectable. This means that it is injected directly into the area with the excess fat. Each injection contains deoxycholic acid, which has the power to destroy or disrupt fat cells. When the deoxycholic acid destroys the fat cells, these fat cells are removed by the lymphatic system. When the fat cells disappear, so does the fat that is sitting underneath the chin.
One of the cool things about Kybella® is that its active ingredient, deoxycholic acid, is something that you have in your body already. It’s part of what your body uses to digest your food. For this reason, most people do not have a negative reaction to the injections. Kybella® is considered very safe.
