Nobody wants a double chin. But factors like genetics, weight gain, and getting older may cause one to form. Nearly 70% of Americans report having a double chin.
Having a double chin can make you look heavier than you are. It can make you stare in the mirror and hate what you see. Are you ready to regain confidence and get a more chiseled profile?
Say goodbye to your double chin with Kybella. At Selah Medi Spa in Katy, Texas, we provide Kybella to patients who want to permanently destroy fat cells in the chin area.
How it works
A double chin, also called submental fat, happens when fat collects under your chin to form another layer.
Overweight people aren’t the only ones with double chins. People of all shapes and sizes have them. Having a double chin poses no health risk, but many people wish to improve it for cosmetic reasons.
Kybella is the first FDA-approved treatment to address submental fat. The active ingredient in Kybella is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid — a natural molecule found in your body that helps break down fat in your diet.
When you come in for treatment, your technician will administer a series of injections under your chin to permanently destroy fat cells, giving your neck area a more desirable appearance. The good news is, once those fat cells are gone, they can’t accumulate fat again. So no maintenance sessions are needed to sustain your results.
How many treatments do I need?
Everyone’s body is different. Depending on the severity of your double chin, you might need up to six treatments spaced about a month apart.
Most patients experience noticeable results after the first session. However, you might need a series of several treatments to get the results you want. The best way to know how many treatments you need is by scheduling a consultation with us.
What to expect
Getting several injections underneath your chin might not sound appealing. But you’ll be happy to hear that most patients tolerate the procedure well and don’t describe it as painful.
The area under your chin is first numbed with a topical anesthetic to help keep you comfortable. Your technician will perform the injections as you relax in a comfy recliner. The sensation of Kybella is often described as mild burning. The whole treatment takes about 20 minutes, so it will be over before you know it.
The results of Kybella are impressive. Many people find that once the fat is eliminated they have a more youthful physique. In controlled studies, 68% of patients found their double chins had improved, with 16% seeing a significant improvement.
One of the most frequent questions we’re asked is, “How long until I’ll see results?” Kybella works differently than other injectables, like Botox, and changes generally appear 4-6 weeks after treatment. However, we think you’ll agree that the results are worth the wait.
The bottom line
If you’re unhappy with your double chin, know you can do something about it. Kybella is a cutting-edge treatment that safely eliminates double chin fat once and for all.
If you have a busy lifestyle, Kybella is a great option for you because it involves minimal downtime. It’s a minimally invasive procedure that is safer than other fat-removal methods that involve undergoing surgery.
