One of the most common cosmetic issues is a double chin. There are several different causes for a double chin. Numerous individuals naturally store fat beneath their chins, and there may be a genetic component involved. The aging process is also a contributing factor due to the loss of elasticity. This enables the skin to sag and slide beneath the chin. In the past, the only way to resolve this issue was with an invasive form of facial rejuvenation. This included chin lift treatments, facelifts, or liposuction. One of the most common misconceptions is that a double chin is always the result of excess weight or a lack of exercise.
The Treatment for Submental Fat
KYBELLA® is a minimally-invasive treatment and has received approval from the FDA for the treatment of a double chin. The injection contains deoxycholic acid and is injected directly into the double chin. Once injected, it will start breaking down the fat cells. This enables the body to absorb the fat. KYBELLA® has the power to destroy the fat cells that cause the double chin. A double chin impacts both men and women and is considered one of the most difficult cosmetic conditions to correct. This treatment targets and destroys the fat cells without any harm to the surrounding areas and tissues. Once the body begins to absorb these fats cells, the double chin will gradually start to disappear.
Deoxycholic acid is a substance naturally occurring within the body and is the basis for the injection. This substance is extremely effective in the natural elimination and absorption of fat. Numerous clinical trials have been conducted regarding KYBELLA® and the product has been proven to be both effective and safe in the absorption of fat. This treatment is referred to as a technological breakthrough by many professionals in the cosmetic field.
