Even if you lead a healthy lifestyle, you can still accumulate fat under your chin. This stubborn fat often resists your best efforts to remove it. If you have a double chin and want to get rid of it, Kybella® can help. This injectable treatment removes your double chin with no surgery required.
What is Kybella®?
Kybella® is an FDA-approved injectable treatment for submental (under the chin) fat. It breaks up fat cells so the body can filter them away, leaving your chin, neck, and jawline more contoured. Unlike liposuction, Kybella® requires no incisions, and you will not have to take any time off to recover. We offer Kybella® as an option for anyone seeking non-invasive, no-downtime fat removal under the chin.
How Does Kybella® Work?
Kybella® uses deoxycholic acid, a molecule that is also found in our digestive systems. During digestion, deoxycholic acid breaks up fat from our diet. When injected, it targets the fat in a localized area and disrupts the membranes, damaging the cells. The body’s lymphatic system filters away these cells, leaving you with a sculpted chin.
How Many Kybella® Treatments Will I Need?
Most people have between two and six Kybella® treatments a month apart. After each treatment, the body will remove more damaged fat cells, and the treated area will become slimmer. Each treatment takes fifteen to twenty minutes. The number of treatments you need will depend on the amount of submental fat you have and other factors.
What Results Will I See With Kybella®?
A few weeks after your first treatment, you can start to see results, but some people need two or more sessions. Your results will continue to develop throughout treatment and for several months afterward as the body continues to remove damaged fat cells. You will notice less fullness under your chin, a more slender neck, and a more sculpted jawline.
The best news about Kybella® results is that fat cells do not grow back, so once they have been damaged by Kybella®, they will not return. If you maintain a healthy lifestyle and avoid significant weight gain, you will not see your double chin again. Good skin care and sun protection will help keep loose, aging skin from making an appearance on the neck.
Is There Any Downtime With Kybella®?
You may see some bruising after your injections, but this goes away within a day or two. Most people experience some swelling, a natural reaction to the Kybella® at work. This becomes less noticeable within a few days but can last a week or more. You may also notice some areas under the skin that feel hard. This happens as part of the fat breakdown process and will disappear without treatment.
Am I a Good Candidate for Kybella®?
Most people make good candidates for non-invasive Kybella®. The FDA has approved Kybella® for moderate to severe double chins in men and women. It works for people with any skin type and tone. If you have an active skin condition or are pregnant or nursing, you may not be eligible.
