Non-surgical Double Chin Reduction
Kybella® is undoubtedly the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure for double chin reduction. Kybella® is an FDA-approved injection that contains a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a safe chemical that can reduce submental fat beneath the chin.
Deoxycholic acid is a natural detergent-like chemical, and when it gets injected in the chin, it “dissolves” fat cells over four to six weeks. Kybella® injections are quick to administer, and minimal discomfort is experienced by patients receiving the treatment.
Kybella® is a perfect non-invasive cosmetic treatment option for patients that want to reduce the experience of unwanted excess fat beneath their chin and jawline. At The Langdon Center in Guilford, CT, Dr. Langdon administers all Kybella® injections to patients.
Benefits Of Kybella®
Arguably the most significant benefit of Kybella® as a cosmetic treatment is that no surgery is needed. This is a big selling point to patients that are either concerned about anesthesia or have anxiety about surgery in general.
Another advantage of the cost-effective Kybella® injectable is that the chemical used, deoxycholic acid, makes fat dissolve naturally. Over four to six weeks, the submental fat cells underneath the chin and jawline are reduced through this process.
Kybella® treatment sessions only take around 15 to 20 minutes. That means you could have your Kybella treatment session during your lunch break and return to work afterward, or continue with other activities in your day.
Each injection isn’t particularly painful as a topical anesthetic cream can be used to numb the injection sites. And lastly, the effects of Kybella® treatment sessions are long-lasting, giving you greater confidence in your facial appearance.
