Many people struggle with excess fat under the chin, which can be difficult to eliminate through diet and exercise alone. This area is often referred to as a “double chin,” and it can be a source of self-consciousness. Kybella effectively reduces excess fat under the chin, creating a more defined and contoured jawline.
Dissolve Stubborn Submental Fat
Kybella is a popular non-surgical treatment used to dissolve stubborn submental fat, also known as a “double chin.” It is a prescription injectable medication made from a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body. Kybella is specifically designed to break down and absorb fat cells, leading to a more contoured and defined jawline. You can achieve a chiseled jawline after a few Kybella sessions spaced a few months apart.
How Kybella Works
Kybella uses a series of injections to break down and absorb fat cells in the submental area. The deoxycholic acid medication is injected directly into the fat tissue, which begins to dissolve the fat cells. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally-occurring substance that dissolves excess dietary fat in your body. When injected under the chin, your body breaks down and eliminates unwanted submental fat cells via the lymphatic system.
Your Kybella Experience
Your Kybella experience starts with a consultation with our medical provider to determine if you are a good candidate. The medical provider will discuss your goals and medical history and curate a personalized treatment plan. The appropriate units of Kybella will be injected into the fat tissue under your chin using a fine needle. Depending on your condition, you may receive up to 50 injections. Most patients need 3 to 6 Kybella sessions spaced a month apart.
The Kybella Results: Onset & Longevity
The results of Kybella treatment are usually visible within a few weeks, with the full effects of the treatment visible in about 6 to 12 weeks. The results improve gradually after each session, but you may need up to 6 sessions for optimal results. The final results are permanent because the dissolved fat cells can’t return, but you must maintain a healthy lifestyle.
