While many people are worried about signs of aging in the face, the chin and neck area are equally affected! This can result in the collection of excess fat under the chin, causing the appearance of a double chin and a poor neck contour. This can be difficult to tone with just diet and exercise, and some may not be ready for a surgical procedure. Fortunately, Kybella can help! With a simple injection, Kybella can destroy your fat cells to improve your contour with many added benefits.
Kybella can get rid of your submental fullness
Submental fullness, or fat under the chin, can accumulate during the aging process, or linger even after weight loss from other areas of the body. Kybella uses an injection with the active ingredient deoxycholic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body to aid in the breakdown of fat. When injected beneath the chin, Kybella targets the fat cells, causing them to deflate and be naturally eliminated by the body.
One major benefit to Kybella is its nonsurgical nature. Liposuction remains popular in removing stubborn fat under the chin and providing recontouring. However, this technique requires tiny incisions and the use of local anesthesia. With Kybella, no incisions are required and it can be used with only topical numbing cream to ensure your comfort. With this comes no risk of scarring, minimal discomfort, and no required downtime.
Can be combined with other procedures
Because stubborn fat isn’t the only thing that causes poor chin and neck contour, Kybella can be combined with other facial and neck rejuvenation techniques. Whether it’s a facelift, neck lift, filler to smooth out wrinkles, or skin resurfacing, Kybella can help put the finishing touches on your more-youthful, toned appearance.
