Dissolve Your Stubborn Fat
Posted on: April 23, 2018 in Category: KYBELLA®
As you continue on your weight loss journey, you may find that you don’t always see the results in the most problematic areas. Genetics plays a primary role in determining where our bodies are likely to store excess fat. Even in otherwise fit individuals, it is common for the under chin to be the victim of this stubborn fat deposit. The double chin created by submental fullness can make you appear heavier than you actually are. At Sand Cosmetic, we offer KYBELLA® injections to help dissolve these stubborn deposits of fat.
What Is KYBELLA®?
KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment for submental fullness. Treatment sessions often last less than 30 minutes, where the KYBELLA® formula is administered into the tissues beneath the chin. The active ingredient in KYBELLA®, synthetic deoxycholic acid, breaks down and aids in the absorption of fat cells. With a series of KYBELLA® injections, your body will slowly eliminate the submental fat, leaving you with a more defined jawline.
Benefits of KYBELLA®
There are other methods for reducing submental fullness, but they typically involve surgery. For many patients, especially those who are in good shape, surgery is too invasive an option. More people are considering KYBELLA® treatments for one or more of the following benefits:
- No incisions, no scarring
- Doesn’t require anesthesia
- No lengthy recovery period
- Quick, “lunchtime” procedures
- Targeted double chin reduction
Is KYBELLA® Right for You?
KYBELLA® is merely an aid in the weight loss process. Those who have just started their significant weight loss journey may not yet be qualified candidates. KYBELLA® is best used on patients with submental fullness who are not experiencing laxity of the jawline or neck. Multiple KYBELLA® injections, usually spaced one month apart, may be needed to achieve your ideal results.
