• Get Rid of Your Double Chin With Kybella

    on Sep 26th, 2018

Whether it’s a gift of genetics or is related to your age or excess weight, a double chin can mess with your confidence. If you’re among the 67% of Americans who are bothered by their double chin (according to the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery), you probably find yourself looking for ways to hide it, like stepping behind a friend in pictures, taking a selfie from just the right angle, or wearing turtlenecks and scarves in spite of the Austin heat. If only you could do away with your double chin.

Many men and women have lost the weight and have tried toning exercises and even exercise devices promising to erase their double chin and create sleek, slim contours, all to no avail. Thankfully Kybella has entered the arena of aesthetic procedures. Specifically designed to dissolve your double chin once and for all, Kybella is the safe, and more importantly, reliable way to toss those turtlenecks for good.

What exactly is a double chin?

A double chin is medically recognized as submental fat, or excess tissue below the lower jaw bone. There are three subcategories of double chin, excess fat, excess skin, or a combination. The submental area is a difficult one to tone on your own, and even having a healthy BMI can’t help you lose the fat that collects under your lower jaw.

Age, genetics, and excess weight all contribute to a double chin. Even if you’ve lived most of your life without a double chin, as you age, you will begin to sag as collagen production within your body slows. This can happen as early as in your 30s and can give the appearance of a double chin. Weight is also a common contributor to your submental fat, yet no amount of weight loss will reduce the fat under your chin.

Genetics is probably the most common reason for a double chin. If it’s in your DNA, you will likely develop the same gift that generations before you came to loathe. The difference is your Great Aunt Sally couldn’t do much about her double chin, but, thanks to the aesthetic injectable Kybella, you can.

How Kybella gets rid of your double chin

It makes perfect sense, really. Kybella is the first FDA-approved injectable that works with your body to dissolve and remove stubborn submental fat. Kybella is a nonsurgical, minimally invasive procedure designed to contour the chin and reduce the appearance of fullness under the jaw.

Kybella is a synthetic version of the naturally occurring digestive acid that dissolves fat and allows it to be released from your body. Once the active ingredient in Kybella, deoxycholic acid, is injected into the fat beneath your jawline, fat cells are destroyed and will no longer grow or accumulate to create a double chin.

Kybella is administered through a series of injections over the course of your treatment. Each session takes about 20 minutes and bruising and pain are minimal. The amount of submental fat and how well you respond dictates the length of your treatment, but typically three to six sessions are the norm. You will see a noticeable improvement usually after two treatments with Kybella.

Because Kybella dissolves the fat cells for good, future treatment and follow-up procedures are eliminated. Long-term studies indicate 75-90% of Kybella patients have maintained their results and are extremely satisfied. That’s a huge number of successful Kybella patients.
