Submental fullness, often known as a double chin, can make you look years older and much bigger than you actually are. A double chin is often caused by changes in weight but can also be a result of genetics. Unfortunately, diet and exercise resistant fat pockets below the chin can be one of the hardest areas to treat.
But, there’s hope! Kybella is a revolutionary injectable that is FDA-approved to reduce the appearance of fat beneath the chin. When done correctly, the minimally-invasive procedure offers long-term results without extensive recovery time.
Kybella uses deoxycholic acid to break down fat and prevent fat from storing or accumulating. Multiple small injections are precisely inserted into predetermined areas by a trained Kybella specialist to help achieve your desired results. The procedure can be done in-office in as little as 15 minutes. You can return home, to work, or run errands immediately following your treatment.
You may need anywhere from 2-5 Kybella treatments depending on the amount of submental fullness you have. Treatments are spaced several weeks apart allowing your body to naturally absorb and expel dead fat cells. You’ll begin to see noticeable results within 6-8 weeks post-treatment. Results from Kybella are long-lasting and can be maintained through healthy lifestyle habits.
Side effects are minimal with Kybella but can include minor swelling, bruising, and numbness. It’s important to choose a practice that specializes in Kybella treatments to prevent complications and minimize side effects.
You may be a good candidate for Kybella if you are self-conscious about a double chin and would like to avoid more invasive surgical options. Kybella can be done in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures for even more dramatic results. Talk to your doctor about what procedures may be right to address your cosmetic concerns.
