It happens to all of us sooner or later. Gravity and aging work together and stretch the skin below our chins into perfect pockets for the accumulation of fat cells – the dreaded double chin. Fortunately we now have a treatment that doesn’t involve liposuction or surgery to banish that unwanted second chin.

This miracle treatment is an injectable called Kybella, and it mimics what your body does naturally to rid itself of unwanted fat cells. It’s similar in composition to a chemical called deoxycholic acid, which your body produces to help absorb fats. Once those fat cells are destroyed by the injection, they can no longer store or accumulate fat. This means that you probably won’t need further treatment once you reach your target goal.

A Kybella treatment is quick, too. Your specialist will administer several small injections into the area. The exact number will depend upon your individual needs, but generally the treatment only requires 15 to 20 minutes to complete. You may need additional treatments to reach your desired profile, and each one is scheduled at least one month apart.

You’ll be asked about your medical background prior to treatment, and you should be sure to note if you’ve had or are planning to have any face, neck or chin surgery or cosmetic treatments in these areas. Be sure to mention also any medications you’re taking, especially blood thinners.

The reviews from patients receiving Kybella treatments are overwhelmingly positive. They report dramatic results with little down time and virtually no hassle. And as a non-animal, non-human formula, it’s available to just about everyone.

Kybella treatments are available from the Golla Center for Plastic Surgery & Spa, and with nine locations in Pennsylvania and West Virginia – three of them in the Pittsburgh area alone – you’re never far away.
