Few things in life are as good as the satisfaction of easily solving a problem that’s been on your mind for years. This is the sensation that patients leave with after their Kybella treatment. Kybella may not be a work of magic or some sort of a miracle, but it sure seems that way after you see the double chin disappear almost like it was not there to begin with.
Yet, despite how amazing it is and the gorgeous results it’s brought, few people know about it or how it works. Maybe this is why so many people miss out on the treatment and all the benefits it has. Just looking at Kybella before and after photos should give you a general idea of what it is capable of.
What’s the Point of Kybella?
Before we understand how it works, let’s first consider what Kybella is actually used for. There are a lot of areas in your body with excess fat buildup. This is completely natural and happens to pretty much everyone. There is no shame in having a bit of extra fat in a few places especially with the state of the pandemic and lockdowns.
The question here is how to get rid of it. You have a lot of options when it comes to fat reduction in various areas of your body, be it the natural methods such as exercising or dieting, to something more proactive, like fat freezing the double chin and letting the body take care of the rest.
Kybella however is a far more specialized treatment. The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) has approved it exclusively for double chin treatments, though the nature of Kybella would allow it to burn fat regardless of where it has accumulated. It is the perfect treatment for anyone looking to get rid of their double chin and restore their smooth profile and jawline.
The Secret Behind the Magic
There is absolutely no magic or voodoo involved when it comes to Kybella. It is all a matter of biology and a pinch of chemistry (a lot of chemistry to be honest). In our stomachs, we have a range of digestive juices which are the acids that break down the food we eat. There is a range of them as they are needed to dissolve the different food that we consume.
For the fat you eat, we eat the deoxycholic acid which specializes in breaking down the fatty food you consume. Naturally, it is a powerhouse when it comes to breaking down fat and minimizing the damage to other cells. The compound used in the Kybella injections is a synthetic version of the deoxycholic acid from your own stomach. It is based on the same chemical structure making it the perfect compound to use against fat cells.
When injected under the chin, the Kybella compound begins to slowly break down the fat and the area becomes leaner. Again, this would most likely happen in any other part of the body when the Kybella compound is injected, but currently, the treatment is only used with the double chin as this is what it is authorized and optimized to do.
Results and Reactions
What’s the point of all these intricacies and details when you may not even understand exactly what Kybella is capable of. Luckily, modern cosmetic centers all across the country are always open about the results and want you to have a clear picture of what to expect from the treatment.
This is mostly done to ensure that everyone is up to date with what they can expect to see and understand exactly what is in store for them once the treatment kicks in. Clinics like Manhattan’s SkinGenity have always been pushing for more transparency when it comes to the results of treatments and what their patients can expect to improve.
When you go for your appointment your cosmetic professional will tell you everything you need to know from the procedure itself to the results, side effects, and any other important detail to help you feel more comfortable when it’s time to get treated. Immerse yourself in the treatment as much as you can and keep track of every question you may have.
While words cannot do Kybella justice that simple before and after photos can, there are certainly ways of helping you picture exactly what the treatment is capable of. The fat stored under the chin creates a double chin, famous for ruining photos and selfies. To get rid of this extra flab of fat the Kybella compound is injected. The entirety of the compound is not injected all at once since your body needs time to burn through the fat slowly.
After a few Kybella sessions, you will notice the area get leaner as fat begins to disappear. Slowly you will see your profile and jawline begin to smooth out as your chin becomes more pronounced. After a few weeks upon looking in the mirror, you will see that the double chin has disappeared, the jaw is perfectly straight, without any extra skin getting in the way of your perfect photos.
Most patients have reported a lot of positive changes after the treatment and have been satisfied with the results. While there have been some rare cases of dissatisfaction and even a few small accidents, Kybella has shown to be one of the safest and most effective treatments on the market. This is why it is highly regarded as one of the best ways to treat a pesky double chin and to create a smooth profile.
The side effects are very minor, though the procedure is also known to sting a bit. Since the compound burns through the fat cells, you will feel the burning sensation. For some people, it is not as painful or uncomfortable, but even if it is, the pain is not anything unbearable. You can soldier on through it quite easily knowing that pretty soon the results will more than make up for the discomfort.
