Kybella® is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that dissolves the excess fat responsible for the appearance of a double chin. Our qualified team at Beach Cities Vein in this Redondo Beach area uses this treatment as a non-surgical alternative to chin liposuction in patients who want to avoid the prolonged downtime associated with surgery.
Contrary to popular belief, the appearance of a double chin is not always linked to being overweight or obese. After all, the fullness beneath the chin is caused by the excess superficial fat, which is primarily determined by your genes. In fact, many people who are on the thin side have excess submental fat that won’t go away with exercise and diet.
How Kybella® in Redondo Beach Works
Kybella®‘s main active ingredient is a synthetic deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that metabolizes dietary fat. When it is injected into the submental fat, it kills the fat cells, which are gradually flushed out of the body through its lymphatic and excretory system.
During your consultation for Kybella® in the Redondo Beach area, your provider will ask your expectations and will conduct a physical exam to determine the amount of your chin fat, skin elasticity, etc. This examination will help Dr. Rayman decide how many treatments you will need to achieve your desired goals.
Your provider will also ask you about your medical history, use of drugs and supplements, and previous surgeries on your face, neck, or chin.
The ideal number of treatments will depend on the amount of your submental fat and cosmetic goals. However, most patients will need two or more treatments to achieve the most desired results possible.
A series of treatments may be required to help you achieve your cosmetic goals. Our qualified team in the Redondo Beach area can help you develop the treatment plan best for you.
The growing popularity of Kybella® in Redondo Beach is attributed to its non-invasive nature. In fact, you can resume your social and employment activities the same day as your treatment.
Results Are Permanent
You should begin to see gradual results, but they do take time. Once the body has expelled the dead fat cells, and your skin has redraped to the new slimmer contour, expect to have a smoother and more youthful chin-neck transition.
When injected into the submental fat, Kybella® kills the fat cells that are gradually flushed out of the body. These cells will not return provided that you maintain a healthy weight or at least avoid substantial weight gain. Most patients will not require any touch-up.
