Are you so concerned about the appearance of your double chin that you’ve been wondering – How can I get rid of my double chin? If that’s the case, Kybella may be the answer for you. Kybella is a non-surgical solution that can reduce the fatbeneath the chin with minimal pain and downtime.
What exactly is Kybella?
Kybella is a cosmetic injectable that is FDA approved for the treatment of moderate to severe submental fullness, (fat below the chin). It is comprised of deoxycholic acid, which is a molecule that occurs naturally in the body, and helps metabolize dietary fat.
How Kybella can get rid of your double chin
When injected into fat below the chin, Kybella disrupts the membranes of the fat cells, causing the fatty deposits to flow out of the cells. The fat is then broken down and eventually absorbed by the body. The cells that are treated are gone for good.
Kybella treatment takes 15-20 minutes, and it may require up to 6 treatments spaced about 4 weeks apart, to see the desired reduction in submental fullness. Most patients are able to get back to their normal routine after Kybella, with minimal downtime.
After treatment is complete there will be considerable improvement in the contours of the chin and neck, resulting in a slimmer, more defined profile. Results may take 4-6 weeks to show.
