Do you eat well and exercise regularly, but still have a full-looking face? Lifestyle, heredity, and aging can all play a role in our facial profile. Dr. Christine Cheng at Nuveau Medical Aesthetics offers the injectable Kybella® in Houston, where the nonsurgical treatment can be an effective way for men and women to refresh their appearance by improving their profile and making them look more youthful.
Many men and women have a double chin, also known as submental fullness, despite their commitment to a healthy lifestyle. Even as other parts of the body slim down due to a commitment to exercise and good nutrition, a double chin can remain due to submental fat cells. While many fat cells shrink when physical activity and a healthy diet are maintained, stubborn pockets of fat often remain. With a double chin, physically removing the submental fat cells may be the best solution.
Kybella® is the only FDA-approved injectable that eliminates double chins by destroying fat cells. You might consider Kybella® treatments if:
Dr. Cheng and her team of professionals at Nuveau Medical Aesthetics have years of experience in cosmetic treatments. They can help you determine how Kybella® can refresh your appearance and achieve your overall goals.
Kybella® has a unique ability to impact cells very dramatically, which means it should only be administered by a doctor who is trained in its specific use, such as Dr. Cheng. When injected with care and precision, it can be a safe and effective way to eliminate unwanted fat cells in the chin.
The active ingredient in Kybella®, known as deoxycholic acid, is based on a natural chemical the body makes to break down and absorb dietary fat. This chemical destroys the fat cells that it encounters, which causes them to release their contents.
When the fat is released, the body processes it as waste. Once these cells are destroyed they can no longer store or accumulate fat, so there should be no further treatment needed once you reach your goal.
Patients usually need two to four Kybella® treatment sessions, which are spaced about one month apart. In the time after each session, the fat will gradually disappear. Friends and family will notice that your facial profile looks more youthful and slender without the double chin.
Dr. Cheng and her team understand that there isn't a "one size fits all" approach to Kybella® injections and other cosmetic treatments. She treats each patient as an individual, and works to provide focused, personalized care based on your goals for your face.
