A double chin is a common issue that occurs due to aging, genetics, or weight gain. Regardless of what caused your double chin, it likely makes you feel self-conscious. The good news is that you can get rid of it without surgery. Kybella is an FDA-approved treatment that is specifically designed to minimize the appearance of excess fat below your chin. Since 2015, it has enabled countless individuals to resolve this issue with no needles or downtime. Keep reading to learn more about how it works.
Kybella is a special injectable formulated with synthetic deoxycholic acid, which can be naturally found in your body. Deoxycholic acid breaks down and absorbs dietary fat. When one of our expert providers injects Kybella into the fat beneath your chin, it removes fat cells and allows you to achieve a slimmer facial contour.
Once the injection is complete, we’ll clean the area and apply a cold compress to reduce swelling. Fortunately, any swelling should subside on its own in a few days.
You can enjoy optimal results after two to three treatments spaced four to six weeks apart. One of the best parts of Kybella is that once it kills your fat cells, those cells are no longer able to store or accumulate fat so no additional treatments will be necessary.
It’s truly a permanent solution to a double chin. There is no general anesthesia or pain involved and you can resume work and your daily activities as soon as possible. After completing your Kybella treatment, you can enjoy a drastic reduction in fat beneath your chin and a youthful, leaner face.
If you lead a healthy lifestyle but are bothered by moderate to severe fat beneath your chin, Kybella may be a good choice. However, if your goal is to lose weight and you don’t eat healthy and exercise regularly, Kybella is not a good fit. If you’re looking for a weight loss treatment, let us know and we’ll recommend an alternative option. In addition, we discourage Kybella to anyone who is under the age of 18.
