A double chin is a common cosmetic issue that can make you look and feel years older than you really are. Unfortunately, trying to get rid of submental fat without professional help is nearly impossible. That is why so many residents of Boston and the surrounding communities have now turned to the exciting product known as Kybella®. This injectable will quickly and safely reduce your double chin by triggering your body’s natural healing response. Within just weeks of your first set of injections, your double chin could begin to fade away before your eyes.
Treatment Options for Submental Fat
Double chins can be caused by many different things including genetics, an individual’s weight, and issues with skin elasticity. Staying at a healthy weight and protecting your skin might delay the development of a double chin, but there is no guarantee that you will be able to avoid submental fullness forever. Once the skin becomes loose, very few over-the-counter products will alter your appearance. In order to remove the extra tissue for a long period of time, the product must treat the root causes of the double chin.
The Science Behind Kybella®
The primary ingredient in Kybella® is a substance known as deoxycholic acid. Many years ago, doctors discovered that our intestines naturally produce this acid to break down the fat that we consume. In concentrated doses, it can also destroy localized pockets of fatty tissue. Kybella® injections trigger a unique biological process known as apoptosis. During this process, your body will destroy and eventually expel the fat cells.
Is Kybella® Right for You?
This injectable is a great option if you aren’t quite ready for an invasive procedure such as a facelift or liposuction. Surgical procedures like these often take weeks or even months to recover from, and you might be left with permanent scars near the treatment site. Kybella® is a non-surgical procedure performed in the comfort of our office in the Boston area with very few noticeable side effects.
