It’s common for your body to pack excess fat under your chins like extra stuff in the attic. This under-chin fat is known as submental fullness. It’s a condition that genetics may have gifted to you early in life, or it may have made an appearance as you aged or gained weight.
Kybella treatment is a safe, effective, and surgery-free way to fix your double chin and give you back your streamlined jaw. It’s also the first and only injectable adult treatment approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to permanently break up fat molecules.
What Is Kybella Treatment?
Kybella is the trade name for a treatment that breaks down fat using a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring salt found in human bile. Deoxycholic acid aids in the rupturing and destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, the cell contents are removed by your immune cells.
When Kybella injections are used on the fat beneath your chin, it results in a gradual but noticeable reduction in submental fullness. Because these cells can no longer accumulate or store fat, once you reach your targeted aesthetic goal, further Kybella treatment is no longer needed.
The Kybella chin treatment was designed for individuals looking to eliminate their double chin and look slimmer. These advantages include:
- Jawline contouring
- Stubborn chin fat reduction without injury to surrounding tissues
- The potential for injection into other areas containing fatty pockets, including your stomach region, thighs, and more
- Permanent results if you maintain your weight
- Non-surgical outpatient procedure that doesn’t require anesthesia
- A price tag lower than cosmetic surgery
- No scars, incisions, or downtime
- Minimal side effects that disappear shortly after the procedure
- Gradual results
Non-surgical Kybella procedures have a few restrictions you should know about. Unlike liposuction, which has minimal sculpting abilities, a Kybella injection is limited to reducing fat. Your physician can estimate how much fat you’ll lose but won’t know a precise amount.
What Should I Expect with a Kybella Treatment?
During your consultation at our center, your board-certified practitioner will test the fat in your neck to ascertain if it’s submental. This is crucial because Kybella may not work as well on fat that isn’t submental.
At your session for Kybella treatment in Encino, CA, your practitioner will transfer a grid of dots onto your neck area over your double chin. This grid provides a sitemap for your Kybella chin treatment. Then your board-certified practitioner will use a small needle to inject Kybella into the fatty tissue in tiny amounts following the grid pattern.
You’ll experience minor discomfort, and treatment sessions are quick, about 15 to 20 minutes each. No downtime is necessary because Kybella is such an exact treatment. It pinpoints only the fat cells in the double chin area and avoids surrounding tissues.
How Many Injections and Treatment Sessions Will I Need?
The total number of injections and Kybella treatment sessions you’ll require will depend on the amount of fat that needs to be dissolved. Typically, patients require about one to three sessions spaced about six weeks apart.
You’ll start to notice results about three weeks after your initial treatment. As soon as you reach the results you want, your sessions end and won’t need to be repeated.
How Long Does a Kybella Treatment Last?
Kybella is a long-term treatment that destroys fat cells under your chin so they can no longer store excess fat. Results usually last for several years and could be permanent in some cases.
This is because your body generally only creates new fat cells to replace those that die naturally. It will not replace the cells destroyed by the deoxycholic acid as long as your weight remains stable.
However, your body will create new fat cells in your submental region if you gain a substantial amount of weight after your treatments. These new cells would effectively take the place of those you lost during Kybella, causing your double chin to return.
Is Kybella Right for You?
Kybella can dramatically reduce a person’s double chin in most situations; however, it may not be suitable for everyone. During your initial consultation, one of our board-certified practitioners will help you explore your treatment options and decide if Kybella is the best one for you.
You may want to consider Kybella if you:
- Are embarrassed or troubled by your submental fullness.
- Appear heavier or older than you are because of a double chin.
- Want to avoid surgery or scars.
- Suffer from a persistent double chin despite eating a healthy diet and regularly exercising.
Kybella chin treatment may not be recommended if you:
- Have a double chin due to excess or saggy skin rather than excess fat.
- Are under 18 years old.
- Are currently pregnant or nursing.
- Have had previous surgeries in the area, including a facelift or liposuction.
