If you can’t improve your double chin through diet and exercise changes, don’t worry. You don’t have to deal with this frustrating issue on your own. At Allure Laser & Med Spa in Tinley Park, Illinois, we can reduce your double chin with Kybella. This cosmetic treatment can minimize the appearance of your double chin and give you a slimmer, more attractive profile.
How Fast Does Kybella Get Rid of a Double Chin?
If you want to reduce your double chin, Kybella may be a perfect treatment for you. This FDA-approved injectable treatment can reduce the prominence of your double chin in a minimally invasive manner. This treatment often provides quick results.
You won’t have to wait years for this injectable treatment to improve your double chin. Instead, you may see positive changes in your chin after two treatment sessions, or about twelve weeks. You may see the full effect of your treatment after several months.
Planning Your Treatment
Although everyone’s treatment plan will be unique, you will probably need two to four treatment sessions to achieve your desired results. The length of your treatment plan will depend on the amount of fat under your chin, your desired outcome, and other factors.
We will wait six weeks between each treatment. Spacing out your treatment sessions will give the injectable product more time to improve your chin. This time will also help your body renew itself and heal after each treatment.
An Individualized Process
Although this product works quickly, it’s important to remember that everyone’s body is different. As a result, you might see the benefits of your treatment more quickly than other people. Alternatively, your body might need more time to process and remove your excess fat.
During your initial consultation, we will provide you with detailed information about your treatment plan. We will also talk about when you can expect to see the full benefits of this product.
Preparing for a Big Event
Since you don’t need to wait years to see results from this treatment, you can use it to improve your appearance before a special occasion like a wedding or beach vacation. That said, you’ll probably achieve better results if you plan your treatment well in advance.
Since you will probably receive multiple treatments, you’ll need time to complete these sessions before your big day. If you contact us far enough in advance, we can design a plan that should allow you to complete your treatment sessions before your significant occasion.
Why Haven’t I Been Able to Improve My Double Chin on My Own?
A double chin is caused by excess fat under your chin. Scientists call this issue submental fullness. Fixing your double chin through lifestyle changes can be extremely challenging or impossible. There are a number of reasons why you might have difficulty resolving this issue on your own.
You’ve probably noticed that double chins can run in families. If your parents and other relatives have double chins, you might be more likely to struggle with this issue. This is because your genes can affect how your fat is distributed throughout your body. If you are genetically predisposed to store fat under your chin, you may be unable to reduce this fat by adopting lifestyle changes.
You probably already know that gaining weight will increase your chances of developing a double chin. When you gain weight, you may store excess fat all over your body. Since your face is relatively small, gaining any additional fat in this area of your body can be very noticeable. As a result, gaining even a small amount of fat may give you a prominent double chin.
Getting older also increases your likelihood of developing a double chin. As you age, your metabolism may slow. As a result, you might have more difficulty maintaining a healthy weight. Further, your production of collagen and elastin will decline.
These proteins keep your skin elastic and firm. As your production of these important proteins lessens, your skin may become weaker and more likely to loosen and sag. Loose skin can increase the prominence of your double chin.
A Challenging Issue
You can’t control your genes or your age. Similarly, it can be very difficult to lose fat in a targeted location on your body. As a result, you may not be able to improve your double chin on your own. Fortunately, this injectable product is specifically designed to address this issue. It can permanently affect fat cells in your target area and give you a slimmer, more attractive look.
How Does This Injectable Treatment Work?
This injectable product uses a sophisticated method to remove excess fat cells under your chin. The product contains a substance called deoxycholic acid. Your body also contains this substance, which can be used to absorb dietary fat.
Removing Your Excess Fat
During your appointment, we will inject this product into the fat under your chin. Once the substance enters your body, it will destroy unwanted fat cells in this area. Over time, your body will remove these dead fat cells using natural processes. Once these fat cells are removed, you will have a slimmer profile and the prominence of your double chin will be reduced.
What Will My Appointments Be Like?
Receiving this treatment is a very easy process. Since this fat reduction method is minimally invasive, you will not have to go to the hospital or receive general anesthesia during your treatment sessions. Instead, this is an outpatient treatment that usually takes about thirty minutes.
Preparing for Your Injections
We may begin your appointment by applying ice packs and topical anesthetic cream to your target area. These preparation measures may help you feel more relaxed and comfortable during the next step of your treatment.
Receiving Your Injections
Once your target area has been prepared, we will administer your injections using a fine needle. Since this needle is very small, you are likely to feel relaxed and at ease during this part of your treatment.
What Will My Recovery Be Like?
This treatment usually has a fairly short recovery time. You should be able to drive yourself home and return to your normal schedule after your appointment is complete. That said, we may ask you to follow some simple rules during your recovery period. For instance, we might ask you to put ice on your treatment area and avoid taking certain supplements and medicines for a while. Following these rules may help you feel more comfortable as you recover from your treatment.
Does This Treatment Provide Permanent Results?
Unlike many other injectable products, Kybella has a permanent effect on your body. The product destroys excess fat cells under your chin. Your body will process these dead cells and permanently remove them from your target area. You will not regrow these particular cells. As a result, this treatment can improve your chin in a lasting way.
Maintaining Your Results
Although this treatment has a permanent effect on your targeted fat cells, it does not prevent you from gaining weight in the future. If you gain a large amount of weight, you might develop additional fat under your chin. As a result, you may be happier with this product if you follow a healthy lifestyle once your treatment is complete.
What Is the Difference Between This Treatment and Liposuction?
Both of these fat reduction methods can reduce your double chin and enhance your appearance. However, they use different techniques to accomplish this goal.
During a traditional liposuction procedure, your medical provider will make a small incision in your treatment area. They will insert a thin tube into this incision. To complete your treatment, they will use suction energy to remove your excess fat through this tube.
Although this technique is usually safe and effective, it is an invasive procedure that can be taxing on your body. You might have to take significant time off from your job and other activities while your body recovers from this procedure.
A Less Invasive Method
Kybella can improve your double chin in a less invasive manner. During your appointment, you will not receive general anesthesia or incisions. Instead, we will inject the product in your treatment area.
You will have minimal downtime after you receive these injections. Further, this simple treatment is often less expensive than liposuction. As a result, this injectable treatment is a great alternative to more invasive fat reduction options.
Can I Buy This Injectable Product Online?
You might have seen websites that claim to sell this product online. You should never consider purchasing this product on your own. You also should not perform this treatment on yourself. To protect your safety and help you obtain more optimal results, you should always receive this treatment from a medical professional. We know how to administer the injections in a controlled manner and will monitor your safety during your treatment.
Does This Treatment Have Proven Results?
This is a well-studied treatment. In fact, this injectable product was studied in a global clinical development program that included more than twenty clinical studies. During that program, over 1,600 people received this injectable product.
The evidence has shown that this treatment significantly decreases double chins. In particular, many people in scientific studies had noticeable improvements in their double chins twelve weeks after they completed multiple treatment sessions.
Who Can Use This Injectable Treatment?
If you’re an adult who has excess fat under your chin, you may be an ideal candidate for this treatment. This injectable product is a great way to reduce this fat in a minimally invasive manner. That said, you should be aware that certain medical conditions may prevent you from receiving this treatment.
You may not be able to receive this treatment if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or breastfeeding. Your medical provider can give you more information about when you can safely begin this treatment after pregnancy.
