Is a double chin ruining your selfie photos? Do you work out and eat healthy but just cannot get rid of your double chin? You are not alone! A large percentage of adults are concerned about submental fullness (or double chin). Age, poor diet, lack of exercise, or heredity may cause submental fullness or the unwanted “double-chin” to form under your jawline—and once it’s there, it can be nearly impossible to lose. Don’t accept this look as permanent! Up until now, the cure for the double chin required invasive procedures such as liposuction or plastic surgery. Lucky for you, we now have Kybella!
What is Kybella?
Kybella is the only FDA-approved, nonsurgical, cutting-edge procedure that dissolves fat cells beneath and around the chin to combat submental fullness. These injections contain Kybella, a substance created from deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps to break down and absorb dietary fat. This substance destroys fat cells beneath your chin. The cells are then absorbed by the body, leaving your submental area noticeably slimmer and better contoured. This relatively pain-free procedure is done in the office over 2-4 treatment sessions. There is no downtime following the procedure, though one may feel some mild to moderate tenderness, numbness, lumpiness, or swelling for several weeks.
