How Kybella™ Can Treat Double Chin Without Surgery

POSTED ON MONDAY, DECEMBER 19, 2016 AT 2:37 PM  by Dr. Jody Levine

Kybella™ is the first and only injectable approved by the FDA to treat double chin! If you are bothered by excess fat below the chin (also known as submental fat), then you may be a candidate for this innovative treatment. Kybella™ can reduce the appearance of stubborn fat cells that build up around the chin and neck. These fat cells are often extremely difficult to address through traditional diet and exercise. As a result, double chin is one of the most common cosmetic concerns for patients. Kybella™ treatment can provide a long-lasting solution to submental fat for a shapelier, youthful-looking jawline. Learn how Kybella™ can treat double chin without surgery.

The Kybella™ Solution

The Kybella™ solution is made from deoxycholic acid, which is a substance found naturally in your body that helps process fat cells. During Kybella™ treatment, a series of small injections will be administered around the submental area. The specialized deoxycholic acid solution works by gradually targeting unwanted fat cells. Over time, these fat cells are broken down and naturally eliminated by your body. Each Kybella™ treatment takes approximately 30 minutes to complete and patients usually require 2-4 treatments spread one month apart from each other in order to achieve optimal results.

Kybella™ Results

Kybella™ can restore contours to the chin and neck by selectively eliminating unwanted fat from the submental area. Kybella™ results are long-lasting and patients can begin to see improvements to their chin and neck line in the weeks following treatment. Maintaining a consistent diet and exercise routine is recommended to further maximize your results.
