Sometimes, dieting alone isn't enough to get rid of a double chin. Luckily, Kybella, an innovative fat-busting treatment can help you reduce stubborn fat under your chin. Dr. Christopher Sesslar of Spa Medicca, your Dayton, OH medspa, explains how Kybella works.
How does Kybella remove fat?
Deoxycholic acid is the active ingredient in Kybella. The acid occurs naturally in your body and is involved in the breakdown and absorption of fat. Kybella removes the fat under your chin by breaking apart fat cell membranes. Once the membranes burst, the contents of the cells are absorbed by your body. Since the damaged cells can no longer store fat, the amount of fat under your chin decreases.
Is Kybella safe and effective?
Kybella passed the stringent U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval process and is an excellent alternative to other fat removal treatments, such as liposuction or plastic surgery. In fact, Kybella is the only injectable approved by the FDA to treat fat under the chin. The treatment is very effective. More than 3/4 of patients report being pleased with their results after treatment.
What happens during Kybella treatment in Dayton?
Your doctor draws a series of dots under your chin in a grid pattern before your treatment session begins. The grid allows him to precisely target the fat pockets that are responsible for your problem. The actual treatment only takes a few minutes and isn't painful, although the injections may sting a little. After your Kybella treatment, you may experience redness, swelling or bruising, although these symptoms usually disappear in three days or less.
How many treatments will I need?
Many people experience significant fat reduction in just two to four treatments, although some people require as many as six treatments. Treatments are usually scheduled about a month apart to allow adequate time for healing.
