Kybella Treatment For Your Double Chin

Even if you’re at your ideal weight and work out a lot, you may notice the stubborn little bit of fat that quite literally clings onto your chin that you just can’t seem to get rid of. You wouldn’t be alone in that regard,  your chin is one of the most difficult areas to naturally trim the fat off.

Look, we’re all for body positivity.  A double chin is normal, and it shouldn’t be anything that bothers you, but if it does bother you, then that’s the time to explore a few cosmetic treatment options.  Don’t worry, there’s a relatively quick fix for your double chin that doesn’t require surgery.

Kybella may be right for you. Read on to learn more about what this injectible is,  what it can do, and how it works.

What Is It?

Kybella is a first-of-its-kind, FDA-approved prescription injectable medication that is intended to treat the presence of a double chin.  The procedure is minimally invasive and does not require going under the knife to achieve desired results.

How Does It Work?

Synthetic deoxycholic acid is the primary ingredient in Kybella treatment. This acid is produced naturally in the body and aids in the breaking down and absorption of dietary fat. This is injected under the chin, and it begins to break down the present fat cells. The body’s natural autophagy process then takes over, wiping out the now-dead cells giving you a more defined facial profile in your chin area.

What’s Treatment Like?

A professional Kybella specialist and aesthetician will examine your chin and discuss what kinds of results you’re looking for. This is meant to give us a proper gauge of how many shots you will need and where exactly they should go. Treatment can be anywhere from two to six sessions, at least one month apart per session. A single session should only take 15-20 minutes.
