What is KybellaTM?
For those who have not heard about this treatment, KybellaTM is a noninvasive method to remove the fat that causes the “double chin” phenomenon. In the past, the only ways to remove this fat were to cut it out or suck it out, both of which require invasive and unpleasant surgery with all the prep work, side effects, as well as time and cost requirements, that go along with it. For many, this fact was enough to prevent them from addressing the issue at all.
However, KybellaTM has changed all of that and created a stir among people all around the country who have been fighting that stubborn double chin fat. Now, this simple treatment, which is unanimously recommended by all members of the FDA advisory committee, is available to the public. Ready to take advantage of the KybellaTM revolution? Read on to find out how it works.
How does KybellaTM Attack Chin Fat?
Instead of going under a knife, KybellaTM offers patients a series of injections that target
submental (double chin) fat directly. Each injection contains a type of deoxyholic acid, which is a natural molecule that already exists in the body and is known to break down fat when it’s needed to sustain the body. The deoxyholic acid removes fat cell membranes and allows the fat cells to be absorbed into the body in a way that mimics the natural breakdown of dietary fats.
The SmoothMed dermatologist administering the injections will determine based on the patient’s unique circumstances where those injections need to take place to permanently remove the patient’s chin fat. This generally requires the dermatologist to focus the largest number of injections on the most significant of the fat. Each injection contains 0.2 cubic centimeters (0.08 cubic inches) of deoxyholic acid, which works on a localized area of fat. Thus, several injections are necessary to complete the treatment successfully.
After ice is applied to the area, these injections should only require a few minutes to administer. KybellaTM works fast and heals within two to three days with no bandages, another huge benefit over invasive surgery.
For the best results, patients should understand that consistency is key. Receiving regular monthly KybellaTM injections for a few months will generally produce the most significant effect.
Who should take advantage of KybellaTM?
Kybella is specifically for patients who experience a small to moderate amount of undesirable fat under their chin. For these patients, KybellaTM can noticeably reduce submental fat. Addressing the double chin fat in a meaningful way that generates real results tends to improve self esteem and confidence, leading to an all-around life boost.
However, KybellaTM is not right for everyone. Patients with excess skin on their chin and neck will not benefit from a treatment that focuses on fat rather than skin. Also, we’ve had patients ask us why they cannot use KybellaTM to treat unwanted fat in other areas of their body. Unfortunately, it would not make sense to do this because of the amount of deoxyholic acid that would be required to significantly reduce fat in other parts of the body. Instead, SmoothMed has many other available treatments to help you feel the best in your body. Contact us by phone or send us a message here to find out more.
