A double chin. How can such a small part of your body ruin so much? A double chin is that little bit of extra fat under your chin that can make your face look heavier and older than it really is. A double chin can also make a man’s jawline look less contoured and masculine. Until recently, there hasn’t been a single non-surgical treatment for the double chin. Now, Kybella has arrived on the scene as the very first injectable treatment for reducing a double chin. Want to find out more about how Kybella can help you?
What is Kybella?
Kybella is a non-surgical treatment that’s FDA-approved for the treatment of a double chin. That means it’s safe, clinically proven to work, and it doesn’t require a lengthy recovery period or downtime. Kybella is an injectable, meaning the treatment is delivered through a series of tiny injections. Kybella’s main ingredient is a chemical called deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring compound found in the body that helps with burning fat. That deoxycholic acid reduces “submental fullness”, which is the appearance of excess fat under the chin, also known as submental fat. Submental fullness is annoyingly stubborn, and it’s often not treatable with either diet or exercise.
How does Kybella Work?
Before Kybella, your only options for removing a double chin were ineffectual neck exercises and drastic surgical procedures. Kybella is a surprisingly quick, simple, and easy treatment. When Kybella is injected into the submental fat under the chin, the deoxycholic acid gets to work and starts eliminating fat cells. These cells are then naturally flushed from the body, preventing them from storing more fat in the future. In effect, the results of Kybella are permanent. Even previous clinical trials have shown that Kybella’s effects persists even after weight gain.
What Kind of Results Can I Get with Kybella?
Kybella can help you regain a more athletic, youthful, and contoured profile.
What’s the Kybella Procedure?
If you’re someone with a busy schedule, then you don’t have the time to recover from surgery. Thankfully, Kybella only takes about a half an hour per session, and most people leave their procedure with only an ice pack.
How Long Does It Take?
You should start to see results from your Kybella session in about 4-6 weeks. Most patients get around 2-4 treatments of Kybella with at least a month’s wait in between sessions. In reality, it will all depend on your specific anatomy and skin type.
