How Does Kybella Reduce a Double Chin?

If you would like to remove that pesky double chin, but you’re not interested in a surgical fix, Kybella can melt double chin for you. Kybella can slim your neck and refine your jawline. But how does Kybella reduce a double chin.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an injectable treatment for reducing moderate-to-severe submental fullness (excess fat below the chin), also known as a double chin. Kybella is a completely non-surgical procedure, so no incisions are required, and there is no downtime.

How does Kybella reduce a double chin?

Kybella is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps with the absorption of dietary fat. When Kybella is injected into the fat cells below the chin, it destroys the cell membrane so the cells are no longer able to store fat. The body then processes and removes the treated fat cells, so they are gone for good. After the cells are removed, the jawline and neck will have a slimmer, more defined appearance.

At the start of the procedure, the doctor will administer a local anesthetic or numbing cream to minimize discomfort. Multiple injections are then made in the area below the chin. Treatment takes 15-20 minutes.

How many Kybella treatments do you need?

The number of Kybella treatments required will depend on the amount of excess fat you have beneath the chin, as well as your aesthetic goals. However, doctors typically recommend 2-4 treatments for maximum results. Sessions are spaced 4 weeks apart.
