From Botox to facelifts, people around the world are continually looking for ways to improve their overall facial appearance. Apart from the cosmetic dentistry procedures offered by many dental professionals, dentists are now beginning to offer methods of treatment to eliminate everything from fine lines and wrinkles to excess fat under the chin. In fact, one of the most popular and newest non-surgical solutions, Kybella, is helping patients get rid of their double chin. Find out more about this safe and effective treatment and how Kybella in Daytona Beach works.
What is Kybella?
According to a 2015 survey conducted by the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery, an estimated 67% of people were embarrassed by the fat under their chin. To help patients improve their profile, a new method of treatment is being offered by more and more dentists – Kybella.
Kybella is a non-surgical form of treatment that includes an injection of deoxycholic acid to dissolve and eliminate what is known as the “double chin.” The main ingredient is a synthetic version of a natural molecule that works to break down fat within the body.
How Does it Work?
When deoxycholic acid is produced, it dissolves fat cells during the digestion process. By injecting a syringe of this acid into the fat cells living under the chin, a dentist can effectively eliminate the double chin and achieve desired results in just a few appointments.
One appointment will only take 15-20 minutes but depending on the amount of fat you wish to remove, it can take multiple treatments. It’s important to know that you should never receive more than 6 injections, and should you need more than one treatment, they will be scheduled at least one month apart.
After each treatment, you can expect to have some bruising, numbness, and swelling.
Why Is It So Popular?
In 2015, the Food and Drug Administration announced its approval of Kybella to be used to eliminate the “double chin.” It was later featured on Good Morning America and has since gained a following of men and women looking to improve their appearance without surgery.
With more people glued to their Instagram feeds and snapping selfies throughout the day, it’s no surprise this treatment has grown in popularity. Not only is this safe, but it is effective at removing the excess fat beneath the chin.
Say goodbye to your double chin and hello to a more youthful appearance. With Kybella, you no longer have to worry about the embarrassment brought on by annoying fat cells. Instead, you can be happy with the way you look and feel.
