A double chin, or excess submental fat, is a common issue that can be difficult to eliminate with diet and exercise alone. Kybella is a new injectable medication that is FDA-approved to improve the appearance of a double chin.
Eliminate a double chin with Kybella
Kybella is a game-changer for people who want to eliminate their double chin without surgery. Kybella is made of a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps break down and absorb dietary fat. Injections of Kybella permanently destroy fat cells in the treated area. Once the fat cells are gone, they cannot store or accumulate fat. Kybella treatments result in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin.
Kybella treats the following:
- Double chin
- Excess fat under the chin
- Heavy and full appearance
The side effects and recovery after Kybella
Side effects of Kybella treatment can include swelling, bruising, pain, and numbness in the treatment area. These side effects are typically temporary and resolve within a few days to a week. There’s no downtime, and you can resume your daily activities immediately. But you must avoid strenuous workouts for a day or two after treatment.
