A double chin, especially if it is prominent or visible can make an individual feel insecure about themselves. Although it usually occurs because of diet and lifestyle issues, a double chin may be genetically inherited as well. It is more likely however, that the condition has been induced by what someone eats and whether they are physically active or not.
More and more people are choosing cosmetic treatments over health and lifestyle improvements, because of time constraints and day-to-day responsibilities. Regulating food intake can also become an annoyance. Unfortunately, dieting may not necessarily resolve the issue. Even if you regulate your diet and exercise, the double chin, not being a target area for physical workouts, means that it is more difficult to get rid of.
If you still have a double chin, despite putting in a tremendous amount of effort performing strenuous exercises and following a strict diet, then a kybella treatment is a great option for you. The treatment is FDA approved and can effectively treat double chins.
A Kybella injection is composed of deoxycholic acid, a substance that can be found naturally in the body. It works by destroying fat cells, thereby removing fatty deposits from the area of injection. This minimally invasive treatment is primarily aimed at those with moderate to severe fatty deposits in their chin.
What You Need To Know About Getting A Kybella Injection
Once you decide that you want to go through with this procedure, the first thing you need to do is find an experienced medical professional who has a history of performing Kybella injections. By working with a skilled doctor, you can feel confident knowing he will provide you with outstanding care. The slightest mistake, especially given the sensitive nature of the area, could result in disfigurement and the need for further treatments to help remedy the problems it caused.
You should do your research and locate a doctor who has a proven track record of success to ensure the best possible outcome. Explain clearly to your doctor what you expect from the procedure. After assessing your bodily needs, they can prepare a customized treatment that will suit your individual needs and help you achieve your goals.
To begin the procedure, your doctor will clearly mark the spots to be injected under your chin. Once the necessary marks are made, he will inject the formula. The procedure will require multiple injections to deliver the best results. It is not known to have any risks, and you will be able to return to your daily activities soon after your treatment session is completed.
Since fat cells cannot be regenerated, you can expect the treatment to deliver long-lasting results. For many patients, visible changes may appear in about two to four months. If you are pregnant, or are considering getting pregnant, your doctor may advise you to wait. However, if you are in good general health, you will made a great candidate for the treatment.
