How Kybella Is Changing the Way Patients Address Their Double Chins
- Posted on: Nov 15 2019
If you have a double chin caused by excess fat underneath the chin but don’t want to undergo plastic surgery, the team at the Center for Classic Beauty in Danvers, MA encourages you to visit Dr. Anna Petropoulos to discuss the advantages of Kybella injections!
Understanding Kybella treatment
Many patients have not heard of Kybella. This cosmetic injectable is not like other dermal fillers and neuromodulators created for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles. Instead, Kybella is used to treat “submental fullness,” known to others as the excess fat that can create the appearance of a double chin. The active ingredient that formulates Kybella is an acid known as deoxycholic acid. This is a naturally-occurring molecule that is found in the body. It breaks down and absorbs dietary fat. When a dermatologist inject Kybella into the fat underneath the chin, it can destroy the fat cells and keep them from accumulating in size. The result? The destruction of the unwanted double chin.
Is Kybella right for me?
The best way to determine if patients are an appropriate candidate for Kybella is to request a consultation appointment to discuss the treatment. Dr. Anna Petropoulos of the Center for Classic Beauty will evaluate a patient and talk about the result they desire from this treatment. If patients are the right candidate, they can move forward with their first series of injections. Otherwise, surgical solutions may be recommended as the most appropriate treatment plan for those who are not a good fit for this treatment.
How long will the results last?
Because Kybella destroys fat cells, and the body does not replenish them, the results of Kybella are permanent. However, the surrounding fat cells could increase in size due to the storing and accumulation of fat. Patients who undergo Kybella injections are urged to eat right and maintain an active lifestyle to avoid further problems with submental fullness.
