You Can Finally Get Rid of That Inherited Double Chin With Kybella

For many people, a double chin is no laughing matter. In a recent study involving nearly 2,000 men and women, about half of participants reported feeling bothered by under-chin rolls. While you can develop excess chin fat (medically known as submental fullness) through weight gain or obesity, quite a few individuals are genetically prone to its appearance. 

For years and years, there was no easy way to reduce a double chin. Thanks to Kybella, a cutting edge and minimally-invasive contouring treatment, you can now do away with that fat and enjoy the sleeker profile you desire. 

How Kybella works

Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment for adults who have moderate to severe fat below the chin. The prescription medication contains a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, a molecule that occurs naturally in the body. Once injected into the treatment area during a brief in-office appointment, Kybella starts destroying fat cells.

Kybella results

Once fat cells are destroyed, they never return. In other words, Kybella results are permanent. Kybella benefits will appear gradually after your treatment as your body eliminates the damaged cells, making for very natural-looking results. While results vary from person to person, you might find that one treatment suffices. Research shows that about 60 percent of people attain the best results after two to four treatment sessions, but you can have a maximum of six Kybella treatments to reach your desired aesthetic. 

Kybella ease and comfort

Compared to surgery, Kybella is a lot less likely to cause significant pain or health problems. The needles are tiny and numbing agents or ice can be applied beforehand for added comfort. The most common side effects of Kybella tend to be mild and temporary, but include swelling, redness, pain, and numbness in the treatment area. More serious complications are rare. 

Good Kybella candidates

If you’re frustrated by the fullness under your chin and surgery seems to invasive, risky, or costly, you’re likely a good candidate for Kybella. In general, the treatment is considered effective and safe for adults. If you have a health condition affecting your chin, talk to your doctor before scheduling a Kybella treatment.
