No one wants to have a double chin. Double chins affect your appearance in so many ways. They can make you look older and more overweight than you really are. One of the worst things about a double chin is that there is often nothing you can do to get rid of it. There is no exercise for your chin, or there is no diet that specifically targets your chin that will allow you to get rid of that pocket of fat. If you are predisposed to gaining extra fat in that area, it will stick with you. Thanks to Kybella®, however, you don’t have to live with your double chin if you don’t want to.

You can opt to get rid of your double chin, formally known as submental fullness, with surgery, but not everyone is keen on the idea of resorting to a surgical procedure to get rid of unwanted fat. While liposuction has helped millions of people contour their body into something that they are proud of, many people are still afraid of the risks and downtime that come with surgery.

Kybella® is an alternative option that has recently found its way to the market. It is a non-surgical injectable treatment that is used to eliminate the submental fat underneath your chin. The power behind Kybella® is deoxycholic acid, a substance naturally produced by the body to help break down dietary fat. When injected into the double chin area, it slowly breaks down the fat, allowing your body to absorb it. Within short order, the double chin disappears, and you are left with a thinner and more attractive profile.

Kybella® is not a one-time treatment. Most patients will need multiple treatments spaced a few weeks apart in order to get optimal results. The process begins with a consultation with our specialist. Then, we will let you know how many treatment sessions you will need and what kind of results you can expect. The number of injections you receive and the amount of the solution injection during each session will vary depending on the size and makeup of your double chin.

Many in the medical profession view Kybella® as the next big thing in the cosmetic world. In the same way that BOTOX® has made popular the idea of how one would treat dynamic wrinkles, this treatment is encouraging the cosmetic industry to challenge their preconceptions about how and when a double chin can be treated.

As with all medical procedures, to get the most out of your injections, you should be in good health. You also need to have the type of double chin that Kybella® can treat. These injections can treat a double chin that is caused by an accumulation of submental fat.

Kybella® is a powerful tool that has helped cosmetic professionals sculpt their patient’s face into something that the patient can be proud of.
