When it comes to staying in shape, nothing beats a natural diet and exercise. However, the unfortunate news is that these methods aren’t always effective in reducing submental fat. When it comes to addressing stubborn fat under your chin, getting a bit of extra help may at times be necessary. Dealing with a double chin is no easy matter, but fear not! Effective treatments do exist.
The KYBELLA® Injections offered here at Behr Laser & Skin Care Center are FDA-approved and designed for effective submental fat reduction! If you’re interested in improving your profile, we urge you to get in touch with our Fresno center today!REQUEST APPOINTMENT
What Are KYBELLA® Injections?
KYBELLA® is a cutting-edge injectable approved by the FDA for the reduction of moderate to severe fat below the chin. This treatment is the first-ever non-invasive option for removing double chin fat. KYBELLA® Injections are made of a special compound called synthetic deoxycholic acid. This compound is comprised of the same naturally occurring molecules found in the human body. When injected under the chin, this treatment can make a significant difference in the appearance of your profile.
What Do These Injections Address?
When injected, KYBELLA® effectively destroys fat cells, easing the appearance of submental fat that has accumulated under your chin. This injectable treatment results in a noticeable reduction in fullness and a more defined profile.
Once destroyed, chin fat can no longer be stored or accumulated at the injection site, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired goals. If you have excess fat and skin under your jaw, KYBELLA® can help reduce its size and quantity.
How Are These Injections Performed?
During your session, KYBELLA® will be injected into the fat beneath your chin, causing the gradual destruction of fat cells. Dr. Behr is one of the first physicians in the Central Valley and is a certified KYBELLA® provider. Her expertise in dermatology and aesthetics ensure that your treatment will be done to maximum effect. The injection process will take little time and you should be able to go about the rest of your day right after.
KYBELLA® Before and After Results
Many patients treated with KYBELLA® experience visible improvements in their chin profile in 2-4 treatments. Some people require up to six treatments in order to achieve their desired results for double chin reduction. Dr. Behr will recommend how many treatments to start with at the time of your consultation.
For most patients, downtime and side effects are minimal. The most common side effects after injection are swelling, bruising, areas of hardness, pain, numbness, and redness in the treatment area.
