Are you frustrated by your double chin, clinically referred to as submental fullness? If so, you’ve got plenty of company. In a recent study involving nearly 2,000 participants, 55% of women and 40% of men polled reported feeling bothered by the appearance of their under-chin area.
That’s not surprising. A double chin can make you look older and heavier than you are.
Fortunately, there’s a safe and effective solution: Kybella. At his state-of-the-art practice in Delray Beach, Florida, Dr. Peymon Zarreii has used this simple, injection-based treatment to banish the double chins of countless men and women throughout Southern Florida. Here’s how.
Kybella is an injection-based treatment. That means no surgical incisions or long recovery time are needed. Instead, Kybella is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a molecule that naturally occurs in the body, that is injected into fat under your chin. Deoxycholic acid helps breakdown and absorb dietary fat. So once it’s injected under your chin, it starts destroying those unwanted fat cells.
The number of treatments required to reach aesthetic goals differs among patients. Your customized plan may involve up to six Kybella sessions. Each session is scheduled at least a month apart to allow time for your body to eliminate the destroyed fat cells. Dr. Zarii discusses each patient’s recommended course of treatment ahead of time.
You will begin to notice results gradually, as your body destroys and then eliminates the targeted fat cells. Many individuals see visible results after just 2-4 treatments. Results are gradual and look natural, not like you’ve “had work done.” Best of all, once unwanted fat cells are banished, they won’t return or regenerate. After adolescence, you don’t develop new fat cells. Although fat cells destroyed through Kybella won’t return, remaining fat cells under your chin can still become enlarged if you gain weight. Therefore, Dr. Zareii recommends that to maximize and maintain your new profile, you maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly.
FDA-approved Kybella is generally safe for healthy men and women who must be age 18 or over. If you have a medical condition, be sure to discuss it with your provider before scheduling treatment.
