Let’s face it: Following a healthy diet and exercise regimen is hard work. But you manage to do it. Best of all, you’ve even lost some weight, thanks to a combination of discipline and patience. Yet for some reason, there’s one part of your body that just won’t respond to your efforts: your jawline.

If you have a double chin or excess fat around your neck and jawline, you might feel fed up with the glacial rate at which this area responds to diet and exercise. Fortunately, there’s a way you can get rid of underchin fat – for good.

Kybella Joplin, MO

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA-approved injection that contains deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring compound that has one purpose in mind: to eat away at submental fat cells. Here’s how it works: Once Kybella is injected into the under chin area, the acid damages fat cells while leaving surrounding cells untouched. The broken-up fat cells are left behind, but they’re slowly removed over the course of a few months by your body’s metabolic processes.

Some patients see results following only one or two injections, however, it is not uncommon for Kybella patients to require a series of three or four injections in order to achieve optimal results. This treatment is an excellent option for patients who may be genetically prone to carrying fat around the jawline, despite following a healthy lifestyle regimen.

How Long Will My Double Chin Be Gone with Kybella?

Here’s what makes Kybella such an innovative treatment: results can be permanent. That means once the fat cells are destroyed by Kybella, they’re not coming back. However, Kybella doesn’t prevent the formation of new fat cells, which means that clients need to continue to follow a healthy lifestyle in order to enjoy their Kybella results.

My first time for microdermabrasion, fillers and botox. Tina was a delight, she did the microdermabrasion. She explained every step and was pleasant and informative. Trish did my fillers and botox the next day. I was nervous when I went for my consult with her. She put me at ease right away. She helped me decide by giving me details and educating me on the different fillers. Never once did I feel pressured or uncomfortable. This is the first place I went. This is the only place i will go. Love it!!!
