There are many reasons why a double chin might develop. Age, genetics, and weight gain are the primary culprits, and neither diet nor exercise seems to help reverse this effect. Thankfully, there’s a solution that can restore skin to its younger, tauter state – for some clients in as little as one treatment. It’s called Kybella.
- Under the chin
NOTE: Kybella has also been used to eliminate fat cells in areas of the abdomen and back (including the bra line). Ask your specialist if this treatment would be appropriate for you.
Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat. Once those fat cells are destroyed, they can no longer continue to accumulate or store fat. Each treatment, inserted into the fat under your chin, typically takes just 15-30 minutes. You can go back to what you were doing the same day!
Kybella results vary by client. While some may see improvement with as little as one treatment, others require 2-4 sessions spaced at least one month apart for optimum effect. Up to a total of six Kybella treatments may be given.
For most clients, there is minimal downtime. You may notice swelling, numbness, redness, bruising or the formation of small areas of firmness for up to a week after treatment. You can easily manage this by applying ice.
