Kybella Detroit, MI
Double Chin Injection
Genetics, aging, and lifestyle habits can all contribute to the appearance of a double chin. If you’re unhappy with your double chin, you’re not alone: over 1/4 of consumers in the United States are concerned about the way the fat under their chin looks.
Even though a lot of people are not happy with their double chins, some options in the past involved using surgery such as liposuction or a neck lift to redefine their jawlines, reduce excess fat, and or improve the neck contours etc.. With Kybella however, you now don’t have to worry about going through an extensive procedure to take care of your double chin anymore.
Remember that diet and exercise alone may not help as submental fullness can be caused by weight gain, genetics, and or aging. You don’t have to be overweight to have fullness under your chin, sometimes no matter how much you exercise or diet, the condition may not go away.
What is Kybella?
Kybella is a minimally invasive injectable option for reducing fullness under the chin without surgery, anesthesia, or excessive downtime—and it is the first and only nonsurgical injectable treatment approved by the FDA to contour and improve the appearance of submental fullness. Kybella is largely composed of a non-human or animal formulation of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule that helps your body absorb and break down fat.
When deoxycholic acid is injected into moderate to severe pockets of submental fat, it targets and destroys fat cells, effectively reducing fat and preventing the cells from accumulating or storing fat in the future. When expertly administered, Kybella does not impact surrounding tissues.
