If you have stubborn fat in your chin that gives you the “double chin” look, you are not alone. A lot of people deal with flabby chins that are practically immune to dieting and exercise.
Fortunately, there is a treatment called Kybella that may be able to help you. Kybella hit the market as an alternative to liposuction or surgery, using a synthetic version of deoxycholic stomach acid—a salt found in human bile that aids fat digestion—to destroy fat cells.
How Does Kybella Work?
During the digestion of food, deoxycholic acid breaks down fat by destroying the cellular membrane where the DNA is stored for that cell. When this same compound is injected into fat, it does the same thing in the targeted locations, helping to get rid of the double chin.
Once Kybella is injected into the chin, it dissolves fat cells which are then eliminated naturally from the body along with other waste. It actually harnesses the body’s own natural processes to eliminate that fat in your neck and chin area, so you’ll be able to achieve a sleeker, firmer look.
What to Expect During a Kybella Treatment Session
During your session, the specialist will inject Kybella into various parts of the chin area. The solution will do its magic over the next several days to melt fat cells in the neck and chin. After the fat cells melt, they will exit your body naturally along with other waste materials.
It typically takes 2 to 4 sessions for you to notice results. One of the best things about Kybella injections is that once the fat cells are gone, they won’t come back! So after you get treated and you achieve get the look you want, you don’t have to worry about additional treatments.
Kybella injections have minimal side effects. Immediately following your treatment, you may notice some swelling, bruising, numbness, redness, and hardness in the treated area. You may also feel some pain. However, these symptoms are temporary and should subside on their own.
Ideal Candidate for a Kybella Injection
Kybella can help anyone with a double chin. The ideal candidate will have moderate fullness in the chin and enough skin elasticity to recover after the fat cells disappear. This will ensure that you aren’t left with loose skin under the chin. Talk to an aesthetician to find out if you are a good candidate for Kybella injections.
