The double chin: something we despise, and just can’t seem to get rid of. What if we told you there was a way to get rid of that stubborn double chin with no surgery and instant results? It’s true – meet Kybella.
Kybella is the new fat dissolving treatment for treating double chins, also known as submental fat. We’ve all been there: you see a picture of yourself from an unflattering angle and there it is: double chin.
How Does Kybella Work?
Kybella is done as a series of injections into the fat. Treatment sessions only take about 15-20 minutes. Depending on the amount of fat present, patients typically need two to four treatments. Within no time the submental fat will be gone – say goodbye to the double chin!
The active ingredient in KYBELLA™ is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, KYBELLA™ causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
Kybella is the first and only FDA approved medication for the reduction of fat. It works by disrupting the fat cell membrane, which ultimately leads to the loss of fat in the treated area.
What To Expect During Your Treatment
Dr. Amerian and Dr. Anterasian will customize your KYBELLA™ treatment regimen, including how many treatments you need, based on your desired chin profile. They will give you a series of injections at each treatment session, which are spaced a month or more apart. Many patients experience visible contouring of their chin profile in two to four treatment sessions! Up to six treatments can be administered.
How Long Results Last
When injected into the stubborn submental fat, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells. The best part? Once those fat cells in your double chin are destroyed, they can’t store or accumulate any fat. After injected and the aesthetic response is achieved, it’s not expected that you’ll need another Kybella treatment.
