If you have a bothersome double chin and you’re wondering what to do about it, there are now great non-surgical options like Kybella, available. Kybella is a breakthrough treatment for under chin fat that provides excellent results. There is no doubt that is an effective treatment, but is Kybella a permanent solution to chin fat.

Kybella
Kybella is recommended for treatment of moderate to severe submental fullness, or fat below the chin. Kybella is a cosmetic injectable derived from deoxycholic acid, which is a substance that is naturally present in the body.

A tiny needle is used to inject Kybella into the area below the chin. It typically requires a series of 3-5 treatments to see the desired results with Kybella. Each treatment consists of several injections, and sessions are spaced about 4 weeks apart.

What to expect
There is generally some swelling and bruising after Kybella injections, and this can last up to 7 days, but it will get better each day. Kybella eliminates excess fat below the chin, resulting in a more contoured jawline.

Is Kybella a permanent solution to chin fat
Deoxycholic acid, which is the active ingredient in Kybella, is a substance that the body uses to metabolize fat. Therefore fat cells treated with Kybella are permanently destroyed, and then eliminated by the body. However, it takes a series of treatments to achieve the best results. After treatment patients are required to maintain a healthy lifestyle, because excess weight gain can cause the remaining fat cells to grow.

Kybella injectable treatment is available at Laser Skin Care Center Dermatology Associates, located in Long Beach, CA.
