As summer approaches, many look forward to relaxing beach days, feeling the warm sand under their feet, and enjoying the sparkling waters. However, donning beachwear and basking in the summer sun can be a source of anxiety rather than anticipation for some. Body confidence plays a significant role in our overall self-esteem and how we enjoy these much-anticipated summer activities. That’s where Kybella steps in, offering a solution that can help boost your confidence at the beach this summer. Kybella is an FDA-approved, non-surgical treatment designed to combat submental fat, commonly known as a ‘double chin.’ With the help of this creative solution, you may improve your appearance and feel better about yourself, making your beach days more enjoyable.
What Is Kybella?
Deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring compound in the body that helps digest and absorb dietary fat, is a molecule that Kybella is generated from synthetically. Kybella kills the fat cells when injected into the submental fat. After these cells are eliminated, they cannot store or amass fat, resulting in a noticeable decrease in fullness beneath the chin.
The precise number of treatments needed for the best results depends on the patient and is administered through subsequent injections under the chin. Many individuals see effects in two to four therapy sessions separated by at least a month. Each treatment session involves multiple small injections under the chin and lasts about 15 to 20 minutes.
An important aspect to understand about Kybella is that it is specifically designed to treat fat under the chin. It’s not intended or approved for use in other areas of the body or to remove more significant amounts of body fat. Moreover, it doesn’t tighten sagging skin or counteract the effects of aging; its primary purpose is the removal of moderate to severe fat deposits under the chin.
Kybella for Beach Confidence
The physical appearance of our bodies can significantly influence our self-esteem and how we perceive ourselves, particularly in situations where our bodies are on display, such as at the beach. Here’s how Kybella contributes to beach confidence.
1. Impact on Physical Appearance
Kybella significantly enhances one’s profile by reducing the fat underneath the chin, leading to a more contoured and defined jawline. This improved physical appearance can make a big difference in how you look in your beachwear. For instance, a double chin can often make us look heavier than we are or older than our actual age. By eliminating this concern, Kybella improves your side profile and contributes to a youthful, healthier overall appearance.
2. Boosting Self-esteem
Self-esteem and body image are closely linked. When we are satisfied with our physical appearance, our self-esteem significantly boosts. After Kybella treatments, many people feel more confident and comfortable with their appearance. This can dramatically impact your overall mood and enjoyment during your beach outings. With an increased sense of self-assuredness, you can freely participate in beach activities, take photos without feeling self-conscious, and genuinely enjoy your time in the sun.
3. Fitting into Beach Wear
Beachwear often involves clothing that exposes more of our bodies, including the neck and chin. Submental fat can make some individuals feel uncomfortable or self-conscious in their beachwear. After Kybella treatments, this discomfort is significantly reduced or even eliminated. You may find more at ease in your swimsuit and carry yourself more confidently.
Procedure and Recovery
Kybella treatment is a straightforward, non-surgical procedure that can be conducted in a healthcare provider’s office. Understanding the procedure and recovery process can help set expectations and prepare for the journey toward a more defined chin profile.
A Kybella treatment session begins with a thorough consultation where the healthcare provider examines the area to be treated and discusses your goals and expectations. Once you are considered a promising treatment candidate, the provider will mark the injection sites under your chin. The treatment involves multiple small injections, and the number of injections varies based on the amount of fat to be treated and your desired outcome.
Every treatment lasts between 15 and 20 minutes. Depending on the patient and the degree of submental fat, a specific number of treatments may be necessary. In most cases, 2 to 4 therapy sessions provide noticeable benefits; however, up to 6 sessions may be required, each spaced at least a month apart.
As Kybella is a non-surgical treatment, there is minimal downtime involved. Most people can resume their regular activities right away. However, remember that there can be a few brief adverse effects following treatment. These could include pain in the treated area and discomfort, numbness, swelling, and bruising. These effects usually peak 24 hours after therapy and then progressively go away over 14 days.
While the side effects can be noticeable in the days following the treatment, they are generally temporary and subside independently. The healthcare provider may suggest some tips to minimize these side effects, such as applying a cold compress to the area or taking over-the-counter pain relievers.
Kybella Is Permanent If You Can Keep It That Way
One of the standout benefits of Kybella is the permanence of the results it delivers. Once Kybella is injected into the fat beneath the chin, it destroys the fat cells. These destroyed cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, which leads to a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Because the body naturally removes these destroyed fat cells over time, the results from a Kybella treatment are typically long-lasting and, in many cases, permanent. However, maintaining the results depends on certain factors.
Kybella permanently removes fat cells from the treatment area but does not prevent the remaining fat cells from enlarging if weight gain occurs post-treatment. Significant weight gain can lead to an increase in the size of the remaining fat cells, potentially diminishing the visual impact of the Kybella treatment. That’s why maintaining a stable weight is essential for preserving the contouring effects of Kybella over the long term.
