Governors MedSpa is proud to offer, KYBELLA®, the first and only FDA approved injectable that directly targets and destroys fat cells in the submental chin area! With minimal down time, this non-aggressive treatment can be done in less than 20 minutes. Submental fullness, double chin or an extended chin profile, as we like to call it, can be caused by a multitude of factors. Genetics being the most common, affecting just as many men as is it does women.
The active ingredient in KYBELLA is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, KYBELLA causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. With available treatments for lifting, tightening, and increasing cell turnover (none of which target “submental fullness”), KYBELLA is a standalone product, making for dynamic differences in appearance, and confidence.
Commitment is key with Governors MedSpa’s KYBELLA treatment. You may see an improvement from the very first appointment, but it’s important to remember that all 3 sessions must be done, before your maximum result can be achieved. Most providers prefer to not even gauge a client’s result after only the first session. A treatment this safe and effective can still only be done by medical professionals, and though almost every person is a candidate, a consultation is strongly recommended to create your own personal treatment regimen.
