The chin can be one of the most difficult areas to get rid of extra fat. People with submental fat can stick faithfully to a diet and exercise regimen without seeing any improvements in the appearance of their chins. For patients that are fed up with the frustration of submental fat but don’t wish to undergo an extensive, surgical procedure, there’s KYBELLA®.
Located in Jonesboro AR, Sills Dermatology is committed to providing our patients with cutting-edge aesthetic treatments in a relaxing office environment. For more information about our practice or any of the services that we offer, contact our office today!
What is KYBELLA®?
KYBELLA® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that can be used to improve the appearance of submental fullness, otherwise known as a “double chin”. This treatment is so unique and attractive because it offers patients an alternative to the painful, surgical procedures they might otherwise have to go through to eliminate excess chin fat. KYBELLA® is a proven effective treatment that has given thousands of patients beautiful, natural-looking results.
How Does it Work?
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring chemical in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the chin, it works much the same way, triggering the death of fat cells near the injection site.
Losing weight may help you decrease the size of your fat cells, but KYBELLA® decreases the overall number of them. This helps minimize your potential to regain fat there in a way that is more permanent than weight-loss: small fat cells can always get bigger, but if there are less fat cells your physical potential to gain fat is drastically reduced.
What can I Expect from a KYBELLA® Treatment?
KYBELLA® treatments work in much the same way that other injectables do: each session lasts approximately 15 minutes, and patients experience little to no downtime once they’re over. While most clients only require between 2-4 sessions to see beautiful, significant results, others may require up to six sessions.
Am I a Candidate?
People of all skin types and genders that are interested in reducing their submental fat can benefit from a KYBELLA® treatment regimen. Most individuals who are over the age of 18 and in good health can undergo these injections. However, keep in mind that patients who are pregnant or have a bleeding disorder will not be able to undergo this procedure.
