Double chins are an extremely common problem. They affect men and women, younger people and older people, overweight individuals as well as thin folks. Fortunately, there is a nonsurgical option that can get rid of your double chin. It's called Kybella®. And the health professionals at Lotus Health & Wellness can help you get rid of your double chin with this revolutionary treatment.
What is Kybella, and how does it work?
Kybella is a prescription medication that destroys fat cells. It's injected straight into the double chin and reduces the appearance of submental fullness. The drug is called deoxycholic acid, and it aids in the breakdown of fat. And once your body naturally eliminates the fat cells, they're gone for good.
Kybella allows for an impressive array of results, especially after you've undergone more than one treatment with the drug. It is specifically designed to treat double chins. It has not been approved for treating unwanted fat in other parts of the body.
Kybella is a liposuction alternative that can allow you to get rid of your double chin without undergoing surgery.
Is Kybella effective?
Many people have tried Kybella and have spoken highly of it. A 2016 clinical trial found that more than 82% of the patients who underwent the procedure were satisfied with the results. The procedure requires that patients receive 12-50 injections per treatment and at least 2-6 treatments with a month between each.
Patients who have sagging skin or want to tighten the skin around their chins must understand that Kybella is suited explicitly for double chins created by excess fat. The drug helps burn away fat, not tighten loose skin.
Is Kybella more effective than liposuction?
In many cases, liposuction is an extremely useful option for removing fat in unwanted areas. However, Kybella is specifically suited to the area under and around the chin. It is also a beneficial option because it requires no surgery and no anesthetic, making it less likely to carry the potential for serious side effects.
Like all procedures, Kybella does have certain side effects, but these are milder than those associated with major surgery, such as liposuction. Some of Kybella's most common side effects include temporary bruising, pain, and numbness. These side effects usually resolve in a few days.
