How Kybella Double Chin Treatments Work
Unfortunately, most double chins are hereditary – and no amount of diet, weight loss or exercise will make them completely disappear. The good news is that Kybella can treat a double chin – and help reveal the smooth sleek jawline underneath.
Kybella injections contain a synthetic form of Deoxycholic acid, which is a chemical the body naturally produces to stimulate fat absorption. It is effective in treating double chins in both men and women. A series of deoxycholic acid shots are injected into the targeted area of fat cells under the jawline – medically called submental fat. The deoxycholic acid literally destroys the fat cells – meaning that after Kybella shots the area being treated can no longer store fat.
Our Canton, MI area patients typically report a noticeable reduction in chin fat after just one treatment – as can also be seen in the Kybella before and after photos on this page. However, the total number of Kybella treatments required to lose a double chin varies from patient to patient. Both the location and the amount of submental fat will determine how many treatments you will need.
