A double chin can affect anyone, regardless of age, weight, ethnicity, or social status. Unfortunately, double chin removal often requires more than weight loss. Most patients frustrated by the appearance of their double chin feel helpless to get rid of it. However, Kybella offers a new solution.
Premiere Aesthetics provides patients with a wide range of treatment options to look and feel their best. Our Fort Myers, FL, office offers a convenient location for patients seeking effective aesthetic treatments and solutions.
Kybella injections are changing profiles all around the world. Here are the top nine reasons patients pursue Kybella injections to restore and define their jawline.
Kybella Is FDA-Approved for Double Chin Removal
In 2015, the FDA approved Kybella to eliminate submental fat, also known as a double chin. FDA approval requires rigorous testing and clinical research trials to validate safety and effectiveness. Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable designed to eliminate fat under the chin.
Kybella Mimics the Body’s Natural Processes
Kybella injections use a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid as their active ingredient. Deoxycholic acid is a bile acid naturally produced by the body that works as part of the digestive process to break down fat.
Upon injection, the treatment’s synthetic deoxycholic acid destroys fat cells in the targeted area. Once destroyed, the fat cells become cellular waste, which the body’s lymphatic and circulatory systems remove over the following weeks.
Kybella Injections Are Fast
Kybella appointments easily fit into your busy schedule. An entire Kybella treatment only takes 15 to 20 minutes. Patients often work their appointments into their lunch hour or during breaks from work or school.
While most patients are in and out of their Kybella treatment in under 30 minutes, we can determine the exact treatment time needed in your initial consultation. Your first Kybella treatment may take a little longer, as we will start by mapping the best injection sites for optimal results.
Kybella Allows You to Skip Surgery
When you choose Kybella for double chin removal instead of liposuction or other surgical methods, you avoid general anesthesia, hospital or surgical center visits, and extensive preparation and downtime.
Kybella injections are quick and easy, performed from the comfort of our spa-like office. There’s no in-office recovery time, no need to schedule a ride to or from your injections, and no incisions.
Instead, you can eliminate your double chin by just dropping in for your appointment, lying back and relaxing for your 15- to 20-minute treatment, and then heading out to resume your day.
Kybella treatments destroy fat cells in the targeted area. Once destroyed, those fat cells will never return.
According to studies from the National Institutes of Health, your body sets its number of fat cells in adolescence, and that number stays the same through adulthood, no matter how much weight you gain or lose. Fat placement that resists diet and exercise is often due to genetics.
The only way to remove fat cells is to destroy them with specific cosmetic treatments or procedures, like Kybella. Kybella injections permanently destroy the fat cells in the treated area. While the remaining fat cells can still expand with excessive weight gain, most patients see only minimal regrowth in their treatment areas.
Gradual Double Chin Removal
Patients who want to eliminate their double chin discreetly, without anyone knowing they had treatment, will enjoy gradual, natural-looking results. After your Kybella injections, the body needs time to remove the cellular debris left behind. As a result, your new profile appears gradually over the following weeks.
While treatments like liposuction offer dramatic results, Kybella treatments provide the same permanent benefits of liposuction, but without the noticeable, sudden change that only comes from a cosmetic procedure.
An Overall Slimmer Appearance
Frequently, patients who use Kybella to refine their profile find themselves fielding questions about their weight loss secret. However, the only weight they lost was in their double chin.
Oftentimes, looking heavier or lighter isn’t about the amount of fat on your body but rather about where that fat sits.
A double chin can make you look bulkier in person, in photos, or over video calls. The fat dissolved in Kybella treatments isn’t enough to change your weight on the scale. However, it changes your appearance, with your newly sculpted jawline boosting your overall look.
A double chin doesn’t just make your face look bulkier; it can also add years to your appearance. Skin begins to lose its structure and elasticity with age, causing it to sag. Carrying extra weight under the chin has the same effect as a sagging jawline. Both result in an older, bulkier appearance.
In contrast, a tight, firm jawline enhances your overall youthfulness. In addition, you’ll find an increase in attractive facial contours from every angle.
Most Patients Are Kybella Candidates
The right candidates for Kybella are those bothered by their double chin and frustrated by their persistent soft jawline despite efforts to eliminate it via diet and exercise.
Additionally, patients who find their submental fullness makes them look older or heavier than they are and who wish to avoid surgery are all great candidates for Kybella injections.
