If you are unhappy or self-conscious by the accumulation of fat under your chin, or if you feel that your double-chin (or submental fat, as is it known medically) alters the way you want to look, Kybella can help you regain the natural profile you used to have. The office of Dr. Michael I. Jacobs offers the newest, safest, and most effective anti-aging treatments available in a soothing, state-of-the-art setting.
What Is Kybella?
Kybella is made from deoxycholic acid, a chemical found naturally in your body that helps with the digestion and breakdown of fat. It is an injectable used to treat moderate-to-severe fat accumulation under the chin. When injected, it works to target and destroy fat cells.
You may want to consider this treatment if you do not wish to undergo a surgical procedure, or if you eat well, exercise often, and still feel that this excess fat under your skin makes you look older.
How Does Kybella Work?
Kybella is gently delivered to the targeted areas. Once injected, the specialized kybella solution then starts to target and destroy the stubborn fat cells, which are metabolized by the body over the following weeks.
Multiple treatments might be needed to reach optimal results. Each session can last around 20 minutes with no required downtime afterwards. Results can usually be seen in four to six weeks following treatments. .
Who is a Candidate?
If you are unhappy with stubborn fat that won’t respond to diet and exercise, you could qualify as a candidate. If you are looking for a solution for achieving a more defined and youthful facial contour, you could also benefit from treatments. However, the best way to determine if you are a proper candidate is through a consultation with one of our caring professionals.
If you are ready to say goodbye to your double chin and hello to a defined and smooth profile, reach out to the caring professionals here at Michael I. Jacobs, MD to learn more. Contact us today and schedule your consultation!
