How Long Will Kybella Reduce My Double Chin?

Are you troubled by a double chin? If your double chin is making you unhappy with your facial profile, you may want to consider Kybella injectable treatment. Kybella is a fat melting injectable treatment that is FDA approved for reducing moderate to severe fat below the chin. But how long will Kybella reduce your double chin.

About Kybella

Deoxycholic acid is the active ingredient in Kybella. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that assists with the breakdown of dietary fat. When Kybella is injected into the submental area it breaks apart and dissolves the fat cells, resulting in a contoured profile.

A course of 2-4 Kybella treatments is normally recommended, but this may increase based on the amount of fat that is present below the chin, and the patient’s aesthetic goals. Sessions are spaced about 4 weeks apart.

How long will Kybella reduce your double chin?

The results achieved with Kybella are long lasting since the treatment destroys the fat cells, and the body does not make new ones. As a result, the treated fat cells are gone for good, so maintenance treatments are not required. However if patients fail to maintain a healthy lifestyle and gain a lot of weight, the remaining fat cells will grow, so new areas of submental fat could potentially develop.

In order to get optimal results, Kybella must be properly administered, and this should be done by a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon.
