There are certain areas on the body where fat accumulates, and it is very difficult to remove this fat by simply exercising and going on a diet. One of these areas is under the chin. Even if a person has dieted and exercises on a regular basis, they may still see fatty deposits under their chin. They may be at a perfectly healthy weight, with a thin and fit body, but the area under their chin makes it look like the rest of their body is obese.
Individuals in this situation can speak with our cosmetic professionals and learn about a product called Kybella®. This is a treatment that has been approved by the FDA in order to eliminate fat located under the chin.
When Kybella® is injected into the chin, it completely and safely destroys the fat cells. Once they are affected, the body will naturally eliminate them. For many individuals, Kybella® is a great alternative to a more invasive procedure. For example, many people have undergone surgery and liposuction to treat a double chin. However, thanks to Kybella®, a person can now have that fat removed with this non-invasive procedure.
Depending on your particular circumstances, you will likely need to come into our office for multiple treatments. These sessions are usually scheduled about two months apart. It is difficult to determine exactly how many treatments you will need since each individual is different.
The very first thing that you must understand is that this is not a weight loss treatment. If you are obese, our medical professionals will talk to you about other treatments that are available. You should be at a healthy weight. You must also have fat under your chin that you are not able to get rid of by means of diet and exercise.
During your consultation at Skin Boutique in Birmingham, we will discuss all of the ins and outs of using this treatment. The best way for you to find out if Kybella® is right for you is to schedule a consultation at our office. If it is determined that this product is right for you, it can help you to eliminate your double chin. Your face and neck will match the rest of your body, and people will have no idea that you’ve had anything done. Contact our office today to book your appointment to learn more.
