Banish Double Chin with Kybella

A double chin can be one of the most frustrating flaws out there: it distracts from your other features, it stubbornly won’t go away after diet and exercise, and it makes you look much older than you actually are. If you have a double chin, then you might assume that you need a drastic or invasive surgery for a slimmer and younger looking neck contour. Thanks to Kybella, that’s no longer the case; so let’s find out more about how Kybella can give you the chin you want without surgery or downtime.

What’s So Special About Kybella?

It’s actually the first prescription medication approved by the FDA to treat double chins. It also an injectable, meaning it’s delivered through a series of tiny injections. No surgery, no sutures, or anything.

What’s the Science Behind It?

Kybella is made up of deoxycholic acid—which is this naturally occurring chemical in our body that helps burn fat. When it’s injected into the area under the chin, the deoxycholic acid works its magic by eliminating fat and preventing more from returning. After that, the fat cells are naturally flushed from the body. What’s even better is that the results are permanent. Sounds easy enough!

How Are the Treatments Done?

You can get Kybella treatments conveniently right there in the doctor’s office. To make the experience as effortless and comfortable as possible, you can choose to get some numbing medication to help with any discomfort. The treatment is over after a few minutes, and since there’s no downtime you don’t have to worry about taking time off or avoiding any activities afterwards.

Kybella is usually done through 2-4 treatments spaced out over 6 weeks. In the meantime, your double chin will continue to transform into a sleek and slim neck contour.

How Do I Know if Kybella is Right for Me?

If you have excess skin or muscle bands on your neck, then it might be better for you to consider other options like a neck lift, a facelift, or neck liposuction.

But if you happen to be over 18, have great skin elasticity, and want a natural, non-invasive way to fix submental fat, then you’re the perfect candidate for Kybella.
