Are you noticing some extra fullness in the area underneath your chin? Perhaps you’ve had this condition your entire life and are just noticing it now? We refer to this condition as “submental fullness” or more commonly known as the “double chin.”
1 – What is Kybella?
Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring acid in human and animal gut that is injected into the submentum (or double chin). Results are gradual over time and you will gradually notice less fat and a more retracted and tighter jawline.
2 – Causes of The Double Chin
Submental Fullness is not always related to being overweight. In many cases, it can be genetic or simply due to natural aging. If you’ve reached a point where this condition is becoming a noticeable concern for you, but you are hesitant to take the painful invasive surgery route, then the perfect solution for you might be Kybella treatments!
3 – How Does Kybella Work?
Kybella is administered in a series of injections to the area under the chin. Kybella destroys fat cells and produces results gradually over time. Kybella is performed in the office and takes about 30 minutes. The number of treatments will vary depending upon the amount of fat underneath your chin and your treatment goals.
4 – Are There Side Effects and Downtime with Kybella?
The most common side effects from Kybella are swelling, bruising, minor pain, and general numbness in the treatment area. These symptoms are especially present for the first 24 hours after treatment, but then diminish completely within 4-7 days. The full effect of each treatment session will be noticed between 6-8 weeks.
