Let’s face it: sometimes diet and exercise isn’t always effective at eliminating the appearance of a double chin.
Submental fat (the more scientific term for the double chin) often ends up where it does due to a variety of reasons. Some people are more genetically prone to getting fat underneath the chin, while other people may start developing a double chin as they get older. No matter the reasons why you have a double chin, your feelings are still the same…
You want it gone.
Introducing Kybella Treatments
Fortunately, the answer to your double chin woes can be found in Kybella, a new FDA-approved treatment designed for the elimination of submental fat.* Kybella contains deoxycholic acid, a compound that targets fat cells at the injection site. As these fat cells are damaged, the body absorbs the leftovers and eliminates them naturally.*
Kybella is only approved for the treatment of submental fat. Results from Kybella are permanent, meaning you’ll be rid of that double chin for good, barring any lifestyle and dietary changes.* Therefore, clients will need to commit to a diet and exercise routine to maintain their results.
Patients can expect mild burning and itching at the injection site. Some swelling and discomfort is expected after the procedure. These symptoms typically fade a few days after the treatment.
How Many Kybella Treatments Will You Need?
Kybella treatments are much more effective effective than diet and exercise alone due to its targeted nature; and most patients only need one to three treatments before seeing their ideal results.* With that in mind, it’s no wonder Kybella is quickly becoming the most popular injectable on the market today.*
