Kybella® is the go-to treatment for people who want to get rid of a stubborn double chin. It’s an FDA-approved injectable, and its active ingredient is synthetic deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the human body. Once injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella® starts to destroy fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction of a double chin. The exact number of injections you will need will depend, however, on the amount of fat under your chin. Once you finish the treatment, the destroyed cells are gone for good. So long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, there’s no need for further treatment afterward.
The benefits of Kybella®
One of the good things about Kybella® is that it uses a natural acid. Since this is found in the body, this injectable is a safe and gentle way to eliminate chin fat. The procedure is also minimally-invasive, and requires little to no downtime.
Double chins often make people appear older and fatter than they actually are. With Kybella®, you can reveal the slimmer, naturally beautiful contour of your jawline and neck, thus achieving a more youthful appearance.
Results of Kybella®
Kybella® results are at their best four to six weeks after the treatment. However, some patients immediately notice a reduced fullness after their first injection.
Since it’s a non-surgical procedure, there are no extreme side effects and the recovery process is relatively quick. For most people, minor side effects like swelling or redness usually subside within a week.
