Kybella, it’s one of our newest treatments here at The Laser Lounge Spa. We’re always looking for innovative solutions to our clients’ problems and were so glad to have found this new procedure.
For those of you who have chin fat, you know the struggle that is trying to remove it. What kind of exercise can you do to get rid of fat under your chin? It’s a real problem area for both men and women, and before Kybella you would likely have to go under the knife to remove this fat.
What is Kybella?
Kybella is an FDA approved, non-surgical injectable to reduce chin fat. The double chin, is a stubborn problem area that this injection can help target. The molecule in the injection eats away fat cells. The fat cells, once destroyed, can no longer accumulate or store fat any longer.
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
On Realself.com, a website where people review and rate different health treatments, Kybella is at an 88% which is an excellent rating!
Kybella treatments take as little as 15-20 minutes and require no down-time or recovery. This means you can get up and get on with your day. Each treatment usually happens about 1 month apart, and more treatments may be necessary depending upon the look you want to achieve.
