If you have a double chin, there are usually three leading causes: genetics, age, and weight gain. What if you had a choice between surgical liposuction and a series of injections to get rid of your chin fat. Which method would you choose? Most of us would take the quickest and safest non-surgical method, and that is what Kybella® is all about. It’s an injectable double chin reduction treatment that gradually dissolves your chin’s fat cells and zaps them away for good. It’s discreet and only takes about 15 minutes for each session, and the results are impressive.
The Only FDA-Approved Double Chin Injectable
Kybella® has been around since 2014, so it is still one of the newer cosmetic treatments out there. It is also the only one to get the thumbs-up by the FDA for double chin reduction via injections. There is nothing else like it for this kind of aesthetic concern.
In the past, liposuction and/or a lower facelift were the only extreme methods for removing a double chin. The delicate surgery comes with a long recovery, and that is something most people would prefer to avoid these days. Instead, the injections use a unique serum to dissolve the fat cells under your chin. This serum is called deoxycholic acid, and it is naturally found in the human body for absorbing fat. In this case, Kybella® is a synthetic form of the acid and performs in the same effective way.
Kybella® was developed to treat those with moderate to severe fat beneath the chin. It is injected in adults who are at least 18. Your aesthetic specialist will numb the areas to be injected before the quick procedure and also map out the site in a grid-like pattern. Anywhere from 10 to 30 injections will be made under the chin. To achieve optimum results, it is recommended that you undergo about six treatments that are spaced one month apart.
Kybella®’s acid will work gradually and steadily to zap the fat cells over the following weeks. These cells are then naturally metabolized by the body. If you’re frustrated by a double chin, you are not alone. Kybella® is an amazing injectable that can quickly and discreetly destroy your chin’s fat cells permanently and without surgery.
