Are you bothered by excess fat under the chin that won’t go away despite a regular diet and exercise routine? With FDA approved Kybella injectable treatment, fat cells under the chin are destroyed to improve your profile. A double chin, or submental fat, can now be treated without the need for invasive surgery. If you’re struggling with fullness under the chin, Kybella injections may help contour and improve your profile.
HOW DOES AN INJECTABLE DOUBLE CHIN TREATMENT WORK?
Kybella is injected into the fat beneath the chin to reduce the appearance of a double chin. Multiple small injections will be made in the problem area and the amount of injections needed will vary. The active ingredient is deoxycholic acid, which occurs naturally in the body and helps to break down and absorb dietary fat. Any treated fat cells are removed through your body’s natural process in the days following treatment. These specific fat cells will not regenerate, which helps contour the neck and jawline non-invasively.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING KYBELLA INJECTION
The process of Kybella injectable treatment takes about 15-20 minutes, although multiple sessions may be necessary depending on your desired chin profile. While individual patient experience may vary, most patients experience lasting results and see improvement in their chin profile after 2-4 Kybella injectable treatments. The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treated area, although these are typically temporary and resolve on their own.
