Many people suffer from the unsightly look of chin fullness, and this is one of the most difficult areas on the body to reduce the appearance of fat. A “double chin” can’t be targeted with sit-ups, and cardio exercise will burn fat in other areas of the body before it ever touches the chin area.
Kybella is the first and only FDA approved injectable treatment that targets the chin area, and has been proven extremely effective at reducing the appearance of submental fat. If you’re looking for a way to get rid of a double chin quickly, Kybella may be the answer for you.
What Is Kybella?
Kybella is a series of small injections of deoxycholic acid that destroys fat in the area in which it is injected. Instead of merely shrinking fat cells, which gives them the opportunity to become larger in the future, deoxycholic acid eliminates the fat cells entirely. This means that the cells no longer exist and the appearance of a double chin won’t return.
Deoxycholic acid is a molecule that naturally occurs in the body and helps with the absorption of dietary fat. When harnessed, it is a powerful enzyme that gets rid of submental fat for good.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The majority of patients receive up to 6 Kybella treatments, spaced out one month apart.
