Kybella is an FDA-approved (deoxycholic acid) injection that can be used to permanently reduce excess fat below the chin, commonly known as "double chin." Kybella can also be used for fat reduction in other small fatty bulges such as the front of underarms or fat around the knee or the jowels along the jaw line. Excess fat accumulation is influenced by multiple factors, and can be resistant to diet and exercise. Often times genetics will play the greatest roll in determining anatomical features such as the dreaded “double chin.
ABOUT SUBMENTAL FULLNESS (DOUBLE CHIN) Double chins (known in the medical community as "submental fullness") may affect adult women and men of different ages and weights. Both the aging process and genetics contribute to submental fullness. In a recent survey, sixty-eight percent of respondents said they were bothered by their double chin.
What is Kybella?
Kybella is a formulation of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance that destroys fat cells in the targeted area. Kybella reduces fat gradually, and patients may have anywhere from three to six treatments spaced one month apart to achieve their desired results. The inflammatory process that Kybella triggers is also responsible for creating a tightening effect in addition to the fat loss.
The destruction of the cells prevent that area from storing or accumulating fat in the future. With Kybella, after the treatment’s series are complete, re-treatment is usually not necessary, and the most common side effects are mild and limited to the treatment area. Swelling is often a phenomenon that is present post kybella treatment.
