Double chins aren’t pretty. From aging to weight gain to genetics, multiple factors contribute to how some can develop the appearance of a double chin. While unwanted fat may exist around your chin, the Kybella® Double Chin Treatment is a non-surgical, FDA-approved solution that uses a naturally occurring bio-acid to destroy problem fat cells beneath the chin. And when injected, your body begins the process of naturally eliminating this excess fat, leaving a well-sculpted jawline and chin.
And what’s even better? The results from Kybella are permanent.
Want to learn more about Kybella? Here’s what you should know:
1) You aren’t the only one who wants to get rid of a double chin.
Did you know that two-thirds of adults admit that they are just as concerned about their double chin as they are about fine lines and wrinkles around their eyes? While the results come from the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, submental fat can make you look like you’ve gained weight, plus add years to your appearance, making you look older (and heavier) than you actually are. While diet and exercise don’t always reverse the effects of a double chin, a surgical liposuction is the best way to remove excess fat from the chin area.
2) How does Kybella work?
Kybella is deoxycholic acid, which is a substance that naturally occurs in the body to assist with the absorption of fats. And when it’s injected, Kybella destroys fat cells, resulting in a leaner and more sculpted chin over time. Kybella can be used on men and women, and for any skin type or tone.
3) What does recovery look like?
Your best bet is to schedule this treatment for a Friday. While you can return to your normal activities, it’s recommended to ice the area throughout the day. Plus, you may experience swelling in the treatment area for 2-3 weeks, post-procedure. Patients may begin noticing results in as early as 30 days, however, they will see their provider in 6-8 weeks to evaluate progress and continue their next treatment, if needed.
