How Can You Reduce Your Double Chin?

Posted in Fat Reduction, Injectables

The double chin is a problem for both men and women, affecting a wide variety of age groups. Many people are prone to accumulating fat in the submental region, which can be difficult to eliminate through traditional diet and exercise. In the past, liposuction was the only opinion for treating excess fat accumulations, but this is an undesirable option for some people who just want to improve the contour of their chin. KYBELLA® is an FDA-approved injectable that effectively reduces submental fat (fat under the chin) to eliminate a double chin.

How Does KYBELLA® Work?

KYBELLA® is an injectable solution designed to break down submental fat that creates the appearance of a double chin. Over a period of weeks, fat cells are destroyed and naturally absorbed by the body. KYBELLA® has minimal side effects, which may include minor bruising, redness, and swelling and requires little to no recovery.

Is KYBELLA® Better Than Liposuction?

The dramatic results of KYBELLA® are comparable to liposuction results. However, KYBELLA® is only able to treat submental fat. For many patients, this is the ideal treatment because it can be performed comfortably in a medical spa or office setting and doesn’t require any form of sedation.

Is KYBELLA® Long Lasting?

Once injected into the submental fat, KYBELLA® permanently destroys fat cells, which prevents them from storing or accumulating fat. Patients who use KYBELLA® are often satisfied with their long-lasting results. A healthy diet and exercise routine will help you maintain your results.

When Will I Notice My KYBELLA® Results?

Many patients see visible results after two to four treatments. However, depending on the amount of correction necessary, it may take up to six treatments spaced at least one month apart to achieve your desired results.
