A double chin not only negatively affects your appearance, making you look heavier than you are, but it can affect your confidence and make you feel unhappy with your profile. Luckily, with all the advancements in the beauty industry, there is now a safe and effective way to get rid of your double chin permanently. At The Facebar Aesthetic Medicine in Pasadena, MD, we are proud to offer Kybella, a cosmetic injectable that will contour and define your jawline.
What Is Kybella?
Kybella is the only cosmetic injectable that is FDA-approved to treat submental fullness, which is the stubborn fat beneath the chin that causes the dreaded “double chin.” It contains the active ingredient, synthetic deoxycholic acid, that targets and destroys these fat cells to slim and contour the entire area to create a more defined jawline
Why It Works
This injectable works so well because it targets and destroys fat cells. Deoxycholic acid occurs naturally in the body. Its role is to help break down dietary fat. This injectable uses a synthetic form of this acid that closely matches that which the body uses naturally. Injections beneath the chin destroy these fat cells. Once these fat cells die, the body uses the lymphatic system to naturally and permanently eliminate them over several weeks.
When the fat cells are eliminated from the body, they will be gone for good. You’ll notice that the area beneath your chin gradually appears more defined and sculpted over the two to three months following your treatment. This treatment targets the stubborn fat cells that create the double chin appearance at their source in a way that diet and fitness cannot.
One of the problems with trying to reduce the appearance of a double chin with exercise is that you cannot spot treat areas of the body when it comes to training and fitness. When the body loses fat, it has the upper hand in deciding what areas lose fat first. Sometimes, you can reach your body goals and reach your ideal weight but still have the appearance of a double chin, which can make you look heavier than you are in headshots.
This treatment is designed to effectively spot treat stubborn fat in the chin and remove it permanently. And the benefit is that because results appear gradually over time, you won’t ever at any point look as though you went and had a cosmetic treatment. No one has to know unless you want them to.
Who Is a Candidate?
Those with a double chin that is causing them to feel self-conscious about their appearance make the best candidates for this treatment. During your initial consultation, we’ll develop a treatment plan inclusive of the necessary number of Kybella treatments that you will need to get that beautiful jawline that you may have never thought possible.
Sculpt Your Face the Natural Way
Kybella is safe and initiates a natural body response to get results. It relies on the body to remove fat cells permanently, and when it does, you will see visible, dramatic results. You’ll get the most aesthetic jawline and will be rid of your double chin for good.
