Have you ever looked in the mirror and wished for a more chiseled jawline? Have you thought of a way to reduce your double chin without resorting to surgery? Well, the solution is closer to reality than you think! Introducing Kybella, a revolutionary non-surgical solution that is available in Virginia Beach, Norfolk, and Suffolk.
Before Kybella: Previous Procedures for Double Chin Reduction
Before the advent of Kybella, the most common solutions to eliminating double chins were surgical, like liposuction or neck lift surgeries. Liposuction was often done to remove excess fat from under the chin, while a neck lift involved tightening the skin around the neck area to give a more defined jawline. However, these methods come with risks such as anesthesia complications, infection, and scarring, not to mention significant recovery time and a higher cost. The arrival of Kybella has provided a welcome alternative for individuals seeking a non-surgical approach to improve their appearance.
What Causes a Double Chin?
Double chins often result from a combination of factors such as genetics, weight gain, and aging. Some individuals may be genetically predisposed to store excess fat in the chin area, leading to the development of a double chin. Weight gain, particularly when it shows in the face and neck, can also cause a double chin. Also as we age, our skin loses elasticity, which can lead to sagging resulting in a double chin. Contrary to common belief, double chins aren't solely associated with weight gain; even individuals with a healthy weight can develop them due to factors such as genetics and aging.
What is Kybella?
Kybella is a double chin filler that works wonders on stubborn submental fat. Submental fat is when a layer of excess fat is formed beneath the chin. Unlike invasive procedures, it is a series of injections that work by destroying fat cells beneath the chin, leading to a noticeably slimmer and refined jawline. It's a safe, FDA-approved, and highly effective treatment that our clients at the Spa and Laser Center in Virginia Beach rely on.
How do Kybella Treatments Work?
Kybella treatments are tailored to your specific level of submental fullness and treatment goals. Typically, patients see visible contouring and chin reduction results in two to four treatments, with each treatment spaced at least one month apart. In some cases, up to six treatments may be needed to achieve the desired chin lift results.
Kybella's main component is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, a natural molecule in our body that helps break down and absorb dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, it destroys those fat cells, making them incapable to store or accumulate fat in the future. That means an effectively reduced double chin that won't reappear unless you experience significant weight gain.
In addition to its effectiveness, Kybella is also a convenient and quick procedure. Each treatment session takes only about 15-20 minutes, making it easy to fit into your busy schedule with minimal downtime.
