Say Goodbye to That Double Chin with Kybella
Are you tired of having a double chin stare back at you every time you look in the mirror? Many individuals are dealing with a double chin, also known as submental fat, due to genetics, weight gain, or aging. In the past, the only remedy to this issue was liposuction, however, there is now a non-surgical option to eliminate submental fat: Kybella.
How Does Kybella Work?
Kybella is made up of a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, which is a molecule that naturally occurs in the body to breakdown fat. When Kybella is injected into the fat under the chin, it destroys fat cells. Once these cells are destroyed they are gone for good, so results are long-lasting!
During a Kybella treatment, multiple small injections will be administered under your chin. However, the number of injections will vary depending on the amount of fat you wish to eliminate under your chin. This process can take about 15-20 minutes to complete.
How Many Treatment Sessions Will You Need?
Because everyone has a different amount of submental fullness, the number of treatments will vary from patient to patient. During your consultation with Dr. Trupiano, you can discuss your individual goals to determine how many treatment sessions are needed. Each treatment will be given at least one month apart, and patients should not exceed six treatments.
There is also little to no downtime involved with these injections, so you can return to your daily activities right away!
