What Is a Double Chin?
Living with a double chin can be discouraging for those of us trying to stay in shape. Living an active lifestyle can go a long way toward sculpting one’s body, but submental fat is another issue altogether. Exercises aimed at burning under-chin fat sadly do not exist. Therefore, if you’re struggling with persistent submental fat, we invite you to visit Bloom Med Spa. At our Oxnard, California center, we are proud to offer Kybella injections for the reduction of fat under the chin. These injections are FDA-approved and can be administered quickly, providing long-term results and a better, contoured profile.
How Does Submental Fat Develop?
Submental fat or a “double chin” is the buildup of excess fat under the jaw. This layer of fat typically develops due to weight gain and aging over time. A gradual loss of collagen and elastin proteins can also lead to the development of a double chin. Whether you’ve developed your double chin through age or weight gain, the appearance of this issue is certainly not a welcomed one. This buildup of excess fat can make one feel older, heavier, and less attractive. If you’re concerned about the appearance of your profile, there is treatment available.
How Can Kybella Help Me?
Kybella is an injectable treatment designed specifically for double chin reduction and skin pigmentation improvement. This minimally invasive treatment option uses a compound called synthetic deoxycholic acid to break down and absorb stored fat cells under your jaw. The treatment works quickly and is completely safe, providing long lasting, radiant results without downtime.
How Long Do Treatments Take?
When you come in for your double chin treatment, a member of our dedicated staff will administer the Kybella treatment via multiple injections under the chin. These injections usually take about 15-20 minutes to complete. The needles used for administering Kybella will be fine-tipped and should not cause much discomfort. However, a topical anesthetic may be offered if needed. Up to six treatments spaced at one month intervals each have been shown to deliver the best results.
