Kybella: The Latest Nonsurgical Cosmetic Treatment Targeting Submental Fat
Kybella is the latest nonsurgical cosmetic treatment to hit the market. Kybella is a FDA approved prescription medicine used to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin The active ingredient in Kybell, deoxycholic acid, is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells. The body then naturally eliminates the fat cells slowly over a few weeks. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
With our goal of providing the best non-invasive cosmetic to our patients, our list of services here at LiveGorgeous OC now also includes the revolutionary Kybella.
Tailored treatment plan
During your first consultation, our professional staff doctor will evaluate the condition of your submental fat and develop a treatment plan for its effective removal. Repeated Kybella treatments may be required to reach your treatment goal. Most patients require 2-4 treatments, but some may require up to 6 treatments with each treatment given one month apart. After 2 to 4 sessions, you will notice visible results.
As of yet, there are no conclusive studies to show that Kybella is safe for use in other parts of the body or that it is safe for children under the age of 18
Additionally, LiveGorgeous OC reminds patients looking to benefit from this injectable treatment that Kybella is a prescription medication which means that you should only get it from a licensed professional staff.
