What is the Purpose of Kybella®?
The primary purpose of Kybella® is to reduce a double-chin. It helps to tighten up the area under your chin, leading to long-lasting results that make you look younger.
How Does Kybella® Work to Reduce a Double Chin?
Instinctively, you may assume that Kybella® is a type of cosmetic surgery – like a face or neck lift. On the contrary, Kybella® is the only non-surgical double-chin treatment available right now. It is an injectable deoxycholic acid, which is present in the body. This acid’s role is actually to break down dietary fat, dissolving it within the body.
Therefore, this is basically what happens when Kybella® is injected into your chin. The substance targets the fat cells in that area, breaking them down and dissolving fatty tissue. The tissue and cells are then filtered out through the body’s natural metabolic process. In doing so, you see a visible reduction of excess fatty tissue around your submental area. It is almost as though they have disappeared, which is effectively what has happened. In turn, this leaves you with a more defined jaw and no saggy skin in that area. Your double chin is no more, and you’re left with a contoured neckline.
