Since receiving its FDA approval in 2015, Kybella® has taken the cosmetic industry by storm. This is currently the only injectable product that’s approved for use in the treatment of double chins. Largely comprised of deoxycholic acid, the synthetic version of a naturally-occurring digestive bile, Kybella® has the ability to dissolve local fats upon insertion. This has made it possible for people to streamline their profiles, permanently eliminate unwanted stores of submental fat, and obtain far more youthful and attractive appearances overall. If you’re considering this revolutionary and increasingly popular treatment, you may be wondering just how long it lasts.
Unlike Any Other Cosmetic Injectable
Most cosmetic injectables that are designed for replacing lost facial volume and reducing dynamic wrinkles are only intended to last for months. More often than not, their effects wear off after multiple months. Kybella®, however, works in a completely different way. This injectable is designed to actually destroy select fat stores upon contact. Once it is injected, it will immediately begin breaking nearby fat cells down. The resulting waste will then be routed out of the body, thereby leaving the targeted area slimmer and more refined in appearance.
When you shed fat via diet and exercise, your fat cells never actually leave your body. Instead, these cells shrink to a fraction of their former size. Unfortunately, however, these shrunken cells have a proven tendency to multiply at a far more rapid rate than before. This increases a person’s likelihood of quickly regaining lost fat, especially if this individual ever becomes lax in a diet and exercise plan. Conversely, because Kybella® permanently destroys fat cells, the fat that gets treated in these procedures is never to return. Even if you do gain weight in the future, accumulating a disproportionate amount of fat under your chin will not be easy.
Another Important Benefit of Kybella®
Beyond producing impressive results and helping patients reach their cosmetic goals in a safe and timely fashion, this procedure also provides people with the opportunity to selectively slim the under-chin area alone. If you have a double chin but are happy with your physique in every other sense, this benefit is important. Kybella® only targets the fat that you don’t want. Moreover, it does so in a convenient and minimally-invasive way.
