There are plenty of ways to reduce body fat and inches around your waistline, but what can you do about a stubborn double chin?
Submental fullness – the clinical name for a double chin – is common among both men and women of all ages and weights, and what’s particularly frustrating is that it is largely resistant to diet and exercise. Fortunately, there’s Kybella: an FDA-approved, nonsurgical treatment for your double chin. Kybella has been proven to deliver effective results for thousands of patients.
Kybella targets fat cells below the chin, melting fat away to contour and smooth out your appearance. This treatment is a series of injectables that destroy fat in the areas where it is injected. Once those cells are destroyed, they can no longer store and accumulate fat.
Debunking the Myths About Kybella
Let’s take a look at some of the common myths and assumptions about Kybella and how they are easily dispelled:
Myth #1: Kybella Treatment Is Expensive
Kybella is actually a much more affordable and cost-effective option than plastic surgery. It costs considerably less for preparation and medical personnel to simply put together and administer an injection than to perform a surgical procedure. Plus, the less fat you have under your chin, the fewer injections that are required to achieve amazing results.
Myth #2: Kybella Injections Must Hurt
Most patients are surprised at how painless Kybella injections are. Prior to the procedure, the treated area is numbed – so you will feel very little discomfort, if any.
Myth #3: Kybella’s Injectable Solution May Not Be Safe
Kybella contains deoxycholic acid, which is a natural bile produced in the liver. The purpose of this type of bile is to absorb fat, so it works naturally.
Myth #4: It Takes Multiple Kybella Injections to See Any Results
Typically, patients only need two to four Kybella treatment sessions to achieve their desired results. In most cases, once the submental fat cells are gone, no additional treatment is needed. If you need more than one treatment, your additional sessions will be spaced one to two months apart in order to give your body time to absorb the fat cells.
Myth #5: You Can See Similar Results by Simply Losing Weight
Wouldn’t that be nice? Unfortunately, there are no exercises that help tighten the area below the chin. However, Kybella works to dissolve submental fat cells, which are then naturally cleared from the body through your lymphatic and circulatory systems.
Myth #6: Kybella Is Just a Temporary Solution
On the contrary – Kybella provides permanent results. The fat cells beneath your chin are completely gone, so you can expect lasting results as long as you maintain healthy eating habits and do not experience extreme weight gain.
Myth #7: Kybella Is Only for People Who Are Overweight
It doesn’t matter how thin you are – your body can still store fat in all sorts of places, including under your chin. Virtually anyone who is reasonably healthy, and who has enough skin elasticity to recover after the fat disappears, is a good candidate for Kybella treatment.
