Are you tired of hiding your double chin under a scarf, but don’t want to undergo surgery to fix it? If so, you’re probably wondering if double chin reduction is possible without surgery.
Is double chin reduction possible without surgery?
Double chin reduction is possible without surgery thanks to Kybella. Kybella is an FDA approved injectable product that dissolves chin fat, aka submental fat. The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body that is used to break down and absorb dietary fat.
How does Kybella work?
When Kybella is injected into the fat below the chin, it bursts the membrane of the fat cells. The fat cells eventually die and are absorbed by the body. They are then cleared from the system over the following months.
A single Kybella treatment consists of a series of injections in the submental area. Each treatment lasts around 15-20 minutes. Kybella is a completely non-surgical procedure that requires no downtime.
How many Kybella treatments do I need?
It typically takes 2-3 Kybella treatments to achieve the best results. Sessions are spaced at least 4 weeks apart.
Are Kybella results permanent?
The fat cells that are destroyed by Kybella are gone for good, so they are no longer able to store fat. The results of Kybella should therefore be long-lasting.
Are there any side-effects
Swelling, numbness, and pain, are the most common side-effects of Kybella. These side-effects usually resolve within a few days (learn more).
