Getting rid of a double chin can be an incredibly difficult thing for some people. Not only is it hard to precisely target areas using traditional methods of fat reduction like dieting and exercise, some people are genetically predisposed to having excess fat gather in the area beneath the chin. If you are struggling to get rid of your double chin, Kybella is the perfect product for you.

What Is Kybella and How Does it Work?

Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable drug that has been specifically designed to get rid of fat underneath the chin (submental fat) so that the chin and jawline have a sleeker and more defined appearance.

Kybella contains a substance known as deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is an enzyme that can be found naturally in the body and aids the body in breaking down and absorbing dietary fat. When injected into the area underneath the chin, Kybella latches onto and destroys the fat cells in the area. Once destroyed, the fat cells are removed by the body’s natural processes.

Most patients will typically need around two to four Kybella treatments to attain their desired results. Each treatment is scheduled a few weeks apart. The injection process takes around 20 to 30 minutes to complete. There may be some swelling and discomfort during the recovery process.
