Kybella in Lehi, UT
Kybella is a nonsurgical treatment that is among the safest and most effective for “double chin.” It helps destroy fat cells underneath the chin.
How does Kybella work?
The active ingredient in Kybella synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® can break down fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin, improving appearance. Once destroyed, these cells no longer store or accumulate fat.
What is Kybella treatment like?
This is a same-day procedure. Multiple injections are placed into the sub mental fat. Dr. Myers will determine how many injections are needed.
Is Kybella effective?
Kybella results can be very visible for the right candidates. Having an experienced, highly trained professional like Dr. Myers can make a big difference when it comes to visible, lasting results.
Patients also report feeling improved self-perception, happiness, and looking younger.
Sometimes those with excessively saggy skin aren’t great candidates for this procedure.
What are the benefits of using Kybella for my double chin?
Double chins actually have a clinical name — submental fullness. The condition is not rare. The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery conducted a survey in 2015 on double chins. The results showed that 67% of people were “bothered by their double chin.” And they said their double chin bothered them just as much as wrinkles and other signs of aging.
It’s interesting that more attention hasn’t been paid to submental fullness, considering how common it is. Up until Kybella, the only way to deal with a double chin was through a facelift or neck lift, often including liposuction. Of course, those are invasive surgeries, with all the inherent risks and necessary recoveries.
That’s what’s great about Kybella. It’s non-invasive: there aren’t any incisions or recovery periods. Plus, the mechanism that Kybella uses to target and reduce fat that has accumulated under your chin is really a natural process. Deoxycholic acid occurs naturally in the human body. Kybella simply uses synthetic deoxycholic acid and it destroys accumulated fat the same way that natural deoxycholic acid breaks down dietary fat that you eat.
Kybella provides striking results, and they are permanent.
