The team of Kaizen MediSpa encourages patients in the community of Bethesda, MD to speak about the concerns they have regarding their appearance. Cosmetic treatments such as Kybella injections are available to provide a non-invasive solution to a common concern: the double chin.
Also known as submental fullness, the double chin results from excess fat underneath the chin that can reduce the contours of the jaw area and cause patients to look heavier than they are—especially in photos. Patients who have a double chin may believe that plastic surgery is their only solution. However, with today’s improvements in dermatological care, patients can now achieve results without surgery. This treatment is known as Kybella.
What Is Kybella And How Does It Work?
Dr. Joe McDonald describes Kybella as the one and only injectable used for the treatment of submental fullness that has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration. Kybella is a special medication that is formulated using deoxycholic acid. This is a molecule that is already naturally occurring in the body. Its purpose is to break down and absorb dietary fat. When this medication is injected directly into the fat underneath the chin, it can destroy the unwanted fat cells and provide noticeable reduction. Because the fat cells are destroyed, they cannot accumulate and therefor, provide permanent results once the goal appearance has been achieved.
Who Is A Candidate For Kybella Injections?
Kybella candidates are those that:
- Have moderate to severe submental fullness
- Are embarrassed by their appearance
- Are unable to reduce the fat with exercise and diet alone
- Want a solution to submental fullness but want to avoid plastic surgery
- Are considering a more natural and gradual way to change their profile
- Are 18 years of age or older
