What Is Submental Fullness?
Submental fullness is simply the technical way that a double chin is referred to. It is the result of an extra layer of subcutaneous fat forming around the neck. This fat will begin to sag, which will eventually make it appear as if you have a second chin. When this happens, you are often left looking heavier and older than you actually are.
How Does Kybella® Treat Submental Fullness?
Kybella® effectively kills the fat cells in that extra layer of subcutaneous fat. By damaging them to the point that their fat is released will allow your body to flush out the extra fat. The double chin removal process does not happen overnight, but rather than in the weeks following your injections. Your double chin is eliminated in a discreet way that leaves you with very natural results.
What to Expect with Kybella®
As mentioned above, this double chin removal treatment involves injections. How many injections will vary from person to person. Prior to your first treatment, we will examine your chin and neck so that a personalized treatment plan can be made. Another thing that varies depending on the amount of submental fullness is how many sessions of Kybella® you will need. Most people need at least two or three in order to achieve the results they are seeking. Some people may need up to six, which is considered the most amount of treatments that any one person can have. At least one month must pass in between your appointments to allow your body enough time to expel the excess fat.
Once your injections are completed, you can immediately go about your normal daily activities. After you have finished your entire series of Kybella® treatments, your results will be long-lasting. There is no evidence to suggest that the fat cells that have been destroyed will ever come back.
