Kybella-The New Injection to Chisel the Double Chin

It’s common for adults of all shapes and sizes to have extra fat underneath the chin, but that doesn’t make having a double chin any less frustrating. This is stubborn fat that doesn’t just go away with exercise, nor is it an area that can be toned and shaped through strength training. But that doesn’t necessarily mean it has to be a permanent fixture.

In the past however, getting rid of a double chin meant chin and neck liposuction or a neck lift, which are both invasive options that involve recovery time and anesthesia. Now though, double chins may have finally met their match. Kybella, a brand new fat-melting treatment, provides a non-invasive option that can help give you the chin you want with no downtime, and because it’s injectable, no need to go under the knife.

Kybella is the first and only FDA approved injectable product to treat the double chin and since being approved in April and becoming available in June, Kybella is already proving to be incredibly popular. The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps with the breakdown and absorption of fat. Thanks to the fat-blasting power of deoxycholic acid, once Kybella is injected, it makes quick work of destroying fat cells under the chin.

Once you and your doctor customize a treatment plan based on how you want your chin to look, you’ll get a series of injections at each treatment session, spaced about a month apart. Most people start seeing results – in this case a more contoured chin – within just a few sessions. The best part, aside from being non-invasive, is that when Kybella destroys fat cells the results are permanent – so you can say goodbye to your double chin for good.
