Kybella Treatment Gets Rid of Double Chin

Posted on May 2, 2016 by Ella Fedonenko

You loathe your double chin, but not enough to have surgery to get rid of it. Now, cosmetic physicians can administer injections to resolve your double chin problem for good. It’s a new treatment called Kybella, approved by the FDA in 2015 for adults with “moderate to severe fat below the chin.”

About Kybella

Kybella consists of deoxycholic acid, a natural substance present in the body. It absorbs and destroys fat cells. However, without proper administration, it can also damage skin cells, so only a doctor trained in its use can perform these injections.

Treatment Sessions

Patients receive 12 to 50 injections at each visit. Most people undergo four to six treatment sessions, scheduled every four to six weeks. Each session takes about 15 minutes. Although it’s important to complete the entire regimen, results are usually apparent by the third or fourth session. After your treatments  are done, you probably won’t have to return for a refresher for several more years, if ever. Since Kybella destroys fat cells, they can’t store fat in your chin any longer.

Potential Side Effects

Kybella poses relatively few risks when injections are given correctly. Patients may experience some swelling, redness or bruising at injection sites, but these issues tend to resolve fairly quickly.

Subtle Changes

Because Kybella works effectively but gradually, patients don’t look like they’ve had “work done.” The tighter jawline appears totally natural.
