What Causes A Double Chin?
Some people are born with a double chin, while others develop a double chin during the aging process. Excess weight may also cause the development of a double chin. The more fatty tissue you have in your body, the more likely you are to develop a double chin. Other contributing factors may include genetic traits, such as facial bone structure. When a double chin is the result of genetic factors, diet or exercise cannot eliminate it.
How can Kybella® improve my appearance?
If you want to eliminate a double chin, Kybella® can give you the smooth, defined profile you seek. Kybella® treatment effectively reduces submental fullness or the fatty tissue beneath the chin that produces the double chin effect. Kybella® tightens and tones the chin and jaw line, restoring a firmer, more contoured profile. Kybella® is FDA-approved, minimally invasive, and requires no recovery period.
How does Kybella® work?
Kybella®is an injection treatment. It is a less-invasive alternative to liposuction that safely and effectively destroys fat cells accumulated specifically under the chin and which your body then eliminates naturally. Kybella® is a widely used and respected treatment for improving facial contour due to its ability to break down fat cells that the body eliminates naturally.
Has Kybella® been tested for safety and effectiveness?
Yes, Kybella® has been through over 20 clinical trials to evaluate its safety and effectiveness. These studies included over 1,600 Kybella®patients, tracking and evaluating their results over an extended period. Almost 80 percent of patients in the study reported total satisfaction with their Kybella® treatment, also reporting that the treatment improved their self-esteem and appearance. Kybella® is FDA approved.
Who can benefit from Kybella® Injections?
Kybella® is suitable for healthy adults to reduce the appearance of a double chin, and for those who have undergone excessive weight loss but still have submental fullness or a double chin. Kybella® is a non-invasive alternative to plastic surgery, so it is also recommended for those who cannot undergo surgery for any reason, or for those who prefer a less invasive treatment that requires no downtime yet produces dramatic results.
