In the Tinley Park, IL area, there may be residents that suffer from submental fat, better known as a double chin. Kybella, an FDA approved injection that melts away fat cells, is available at Allure Laser & Med Spa
How do I Get Rid of a Double Chin?
One of the most effective ways to get rid of a double chin is to simply melt it away. Kybella is an FDA approved treatment that focuses on eliminating submental fullness (the extra fat under the chin commonly referred to as a double chin.)
What is Kybella?
Kybella, made from deoxycholic acid, is the only injectable treatment currently FDA approved for use in the improvement of the submental area. Kybella is precisely injected into the fat layer under the chin where it will begin the process of breaking down extra fat. Kybella contains a substance called deoxycholic acid which naturally occurs in the body, and makes it very safe for use. The injections of deoxycholic acid are placed exactly where the extra chin fat is located.
How Long is the Treatment Process?
The treatment process usually takes approximately 30 minutes. Most clients require two to four total treatments, with sessions scheduled six weeks apart.
What Does Kybella Treatment Feel Like?
The client will typically be prepared for treatment with a topical anesthetic cream and ice packs. The needles used for the injections are extremely fine, thus most clients experience minimal pain or discomfort.
How Long Does Kybella Last?
Kybella treatments are permanent. The fat cells targeted are completely removed from the body with this procedure. If a client gains significant weight in the future, they may develop submental fat again, but the original fat cells treated are completely gone.
How Does Kybella Compare to Liposuction?
Kybella is a minimally invasive treatment, while liposuction requires surgery, anesthesia and significant down time. Liposuction is also more costly. Kybella is a superior option for most clients as it is less expensive, faster, and a less invasive method to eliminate the double chin.
