Body contouring is a popular cosmetic method that encompasses a variety of procedures. People contour everything from their faces to their bodies. Our patients who want to address loose skin or excessive fat in certain areas of their bodies may benefit from body contouring procedures.
Are you struggling with a double chin? Double chins are frustrating because they can be one of the last things to go on your weight loss journey.
However, some naturally thin individuals also confront double chins. Luckily, Revive Clinic can help with Kybella cosmetic injectables.
Anyone can have a double chin, regardless of whether they’re conventionally thin or overweight.
A double chin refers to having excess flesh or fat underneath your chin, also known as the submental area. Excess submental fat can make you appear heavier than you actually are.
What Causes a Double Chin?
What are the causes of a double chin? Double chins are often caused by excess weight, but people of any size can develop extra fat under their chins.
In individuals who are conventionally thin but still have a double chin, the causes are often genetic.
One of the most common causes, however, is age.
Why Does Age Cause Double Chins?
As you age, your skin loses its elasticity and fullness due to declining levels of collagen and elastin in your skin.
Collagen and elastin are essential nutrients in your skin that add to its youthfulness. Collagen is a dense protein that makes your skin thick and voluptuous.
After about the age of 30, the levels of collagen in your skin begin to decline rapidly. This is why common signs of aging include thin, sagging skin.
Chin Fat Removal
There are a handful of DIY ways that you can try to achieve chin fat removal in your daily routine.
One popular method of chin fat removal many people practice is “face yoga,” which is like an exercise for the muscles in your face.
Just like regular exercise helps contour your body, so too can face yoga help contour around your chin.
If DIY methods aren’t working for you, however, clinical treatments like Kybella could be an excellent treatment option.
What Is Kybella?
Kybella is a cosmetic injectable that relies on fat-dissolving technology to eliminate the pockets of fat under your chin. Kybella is the only FDA-approved treatment method for the submental area.
How It Works
Kybella uses a synthetic version of a substance naturally made by your body called deoxycholic acid. This acid, also called cholanoic acid, is a type of bile acid generated within the digestive system.
Deoxycholic acid plays a role in breaking down fats so you can digest them easily.
When Kybella is injected into the submental area under your chin, it actually kills fat cells. This effectively reduces the appearance of your double chin.
The dead fat cells then become cellular waste, which is cycled through your body’s circulatory and lymphatic system.
What to Expect at Your Kybella Appointment
Your Kybella journey will begin with a consultation to determine your custom neck contouring treatment plan according to your facial structure and body type.
At your initial appointment, our team will administer your first Kybella injection.
After Your Kybella Injections
After your injections, you can go about your regular routine as you let your body work on itself from the inside out.
How Long Does It Take to See Results with Kybella?
With Kybella, results are typically visible between four to six weeks following treatment.
It takes some time to see results because you have to give your body time to kill off the excessive fat cells. Additionally, it takes some time for your body to eliminate the cellular waste from the dead fat cells and then cycle them through your body.
How Long Do Kybella Injections Last?
Patients can enjoy the benefits from Kybella permanently. Once the fat cells are dead, they’re dead and gone.
However, weight fluctuations may lead to the reappearance of submental fat. If you see regrowth of tissue or fat in this area, you can get a maintenance treatment of Kybella.
How Many Kybella Injections Are Required?
In general, most patients do best with six injections of Kybella in order to receive the results they want.
Additionally, Kybella injections are limited to one injection per month.
Benefits of Kybella
There are many benefits of the Kybella cosmetic injectable.
First and foremost, Kybella is non-surgical. Other methods to treat loose skin or excess fat around the double chin include surgical methods like facelifts. Kybella offers patients a minimally invasive and non-surgical treatment option to help address their double chins.
Because Kybella is minimally invasive, there is no downtime required and no recovery time associated with the procedure. This is another benefit that can put Kybella ahead of other surgical procedures for patients who are not interested in invasive procedures with lengthy recovery times.
Kybella is also permanent. Once the fat cells are destroyed via the Kybella injections, they’re gone for good. This is a major benefit of Kybella, as most long-lasting results are not accessible without surgery, but Kybella is.
