You look in the mirror, and all you see is a kybella double chin. Want to get rid of that double chin that makes you look heavier or older than you are? Unfortunately, double chins can appear no matter what you do. You can eat right and exercise, but a double chin is often inevitable. A double chin or the submental fat below your chin may develop for many reasons, including diet, age, weight, or even genetics. Now is the time you can stop hiding your double chin with high-necked sweaters or scarves by taking advantage of the first FDA-approved injectable to treat double chins. With a few noninvasive injections, the fat cells under your chin can be permanently removed.
What is Kybella?
The active ingredient in Kybella is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a bile acid naturally produced by your body to help absorb fat. This natural composition helps make Kybella very well tolerated. However, deoxycholic acid can be very fickle. You will never know what fat deposits deoxycholic acid will attack, and your body may not make enough of the acid to do any good. So, to get rid of a double chin, you will need help.
Kybella treatments destroy fat cells, and the effects are permanent. Interestingly, clinical trials by the FDA proved that even after gaining weight, patients who underwent treatments did not see a return of their double chins.
Only a Kybella-trained healthcare specialist can administer Kybella injections. Before injecting the medicine, providers take great care to mark injection sites with a pen before administering Kybella. If you feel uncomfortable, your injector can dispense a topical numbing agent or ice pack to relieve any discomfort or pain.
You will receive multiple small injections under the chin at each treatment, and the injection process takes 15 to 20 minutes. In about four to six weeks after the initial treatment, you may begin to see results.
Kybella is a great treatment for those who have good skin elasticity. Those with good skin elasticity find that their skin can redrape well to their new contour once all the dead fat cells are eliminated.
Since each patient’s chin profile is different, the number of Kybella treatment sessions differs from patient to patient. For example, you may need up to six Kybella treatments, but your friend may only need four treatments. Your injector will determine how many treatment sessions you need based on your submental fat and your goals.
Kybella Treatment Benefits
Kybella gets rid of your double chin. The synthetic deoxycholic acid in the injection destroys fat cells within the chin, neck, and jaw, and the fat cells no longer absorb fat. Damaged cells are metabolized and eliminated as the body absorbs the fat. This process results in a reduction or disappearance of a double chin.
There is a lower risk of possible side effects from Kybella than with other treatments that target double chins. Previously, the only way to remove excess fat below your chin was to do chin liposuction surgery. Liposuction involves a small incision placed beneath your chin, and you may need another incision behind your ears. In addition, surgery requires anesthesia recovery time, and there are other risks.
Kybella treatment will provide you with a young-looking and contoured profile. You look more contoured because deoxycholic acid breaks down the walls of fat cells and prevents them from storing fat. As a result, the appearance of a double chin is reduced or erased.
Are there any side effects after its treatment?
After Kybella treatment, you may experience some swelling and bruising. The swelling and bruising tend to last one to three days but may be noticeable for a few weeks before your chin is entirely back to normal. You can reduce the pain or discomfort you might feel by taking over-the-counter pain relievers.
Look at before and after photos of patients who have undergone Kybella treatment. You, too, can expect a smoother chin-neck transition and have that younger-looking profile.
