Though the holidays are already upon us, you may already feel that you’ve gained your holiday pounds. And while some of us may have started early, others simply can’t rid themselves of stubborn fat. A genetic predisposition towards under-chin fat, or a double-chin, may affect how you look. If you still have a stubborn double-chin, no matter how often you exercise or how many healthy foods you eat, Kybella could be for you.
There is a solution for that double-chin that doesn’t want to leave you alone. Keep reading to learn about Kybella and how this revolutionary treatment can help banish your double-chin.
What is Kybella?
Kybella utilizes a cosmetic injectable instead of invasive surgery to help banish unwanted fat from creating that double-chin. Kybella’s active ingredient is deoxycholic acid, which is an amazing solution that allows your body break down stubborn fat under the chin.
The Kybella solution is injected across the neck and underneath the chin, where it goes to work helping break down unwelcome fat. That’s all: there are no incisions or surgeries to worry about.
A series of injections are applied across the neck area over a short appointment, and you may be recommended to come back for a follow-up appointment or two. The solution gets to work, breaking down those stubborn fat cells. The fat cells are removed from your body along with normal waste, through the lymph system.
Timing is important when you consider your Kybella treatments. It is not uncommon for patients to experience swelling underneath the neck as the Kybella solution processes. This swelling is called “Bullfrog Neck”, and it is a normal side effect which signals the solution is working.
How until I see results?
After your first appointment, you may experience swelling that increases slightly for 24 hours after your appointment. This swelling may last a few days or a few weeks, depending on your body and how the solution is reacting to your cells. If you have a wedding or other important event, it’s key to plan your treatments accordingly.
