You may not be overweight but have still developed a “double chin” at some point. Having fat tissue form below your chin is a common, yet embarrassing development and can impact the way you see yourself. Most prior treatments have included surgical options that are invasive on the body and can leave you with a lengthy recovery time. If you want to avoid surgery, another option may be best for you. The Kybella treatment is a recently developed alternative that can reduce the appearance of your double chin. Let us take a look at how Kybella works and what you can expect from its treatments:

How Kybella Works

Unlike surgical treatments, Kybella is a prescription medication that can be injected into the areas below the chin to reduce the appearance of a double chin. Kybella is easily injected into the chin and lets you avoid the major incisions needed for surgical treatments. Kybella’s main active ingredient, deoxycholic acid, is a naturally occurring chemical in the body and helps your body break down the fat stored below your chin. Kybella requires multiple treatment rounds to find the right aesthetic goal you are trying to achieve.

What to Expect

You can expect desired results after multiple injections of Kybella. Treatments can be administered as short as a month apart, making for a short timeline to achieve your goals. Since Kybella destroys the fat cells under your chin, you should see a noticeable difference between before you started treatment and after your final round. Best yet, the cells below your chin will be unable to store fat tissue after your final injection of Kybella, making sure you do not need additional treatments in the future. The recommended injections of Kybella Treatment will be tailored around your individual characteristics, making this an individualized treatment.

Following the Kybella Treatment

Most patients of Kybella may experience temporary side effects such as numbness and redness that will quickly dissipate. Injections take as little as 20 minutes, allowing you to even stop by during your lunch break from work. You will be in and out in no time with no lengthy recovery time needed.
