Most of us have been frustrated at one time or another by a little stubborn fat. Sometimes, it just seems like no matter how healthy you eat or how much you exercise that there will always be a holdout. For many people, this holdout holes up under their chin. If this is your case, Spartan Family Dentistry might have the solution: KYBELLA®.
KYBELLA is the first FDA-approved injectable treatment for moderate to severe fat accumulation under the chin. Also known as “submental fullness,” this condition can be the result of aging, genetics and weight loss or gain. Using a series of quick, comfortable injections, our dentist can actually help eliminate this bothersome fat deposit.
We know it might sound a little far-fetched, but the process is quite simple. KYBELLA uses deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring substance that helps the body break down and absorb fat in the food we eat. When introduced directly into fat cells under the skin, the same process results. Fat cells are literally destroyed and removed by the body. And once they are destroyed, they do not return.
Some initial swelling can occur after treatment, so keep your social schedule in mind when deciding on a treatment timetable. Most patients experience the best results with a cycle of three to six treatments spaced out over a few months.
