When Will My Double Chin Go Away?

Published on December 13, 2019

When fat underneath your chin accumulates, it can create the look of a double chin. This can detract from a person’s appearance, making them look older or overweight even when they are at healthy body weight.

People who have a double chin find that it is quite hard to get rid of. You can exercise to reduce overall body fat, but it is ineffective for spot reduction, especially in the submental region. How can you get rid of submental fat?

Kybella Reshapes a Sagging Double Chin

Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable prescription medicine that reduces submental fat. It is composed of deoxycholic acid. A naturally occurring molecule in your body, deoxycholic acid is a bile acid that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fats.

Kybella’s synthetic deoxycholic acid mimics the body’s natural fat-absorption process. When injected beneath your chin, Kybella destroys submental fat cells, eliminating your double chin.

Once destroyed, fat cells cannot regrow or store fat again, meaning results are permanent. This will leave your jawline looking more defined for years to come.

What Are the Benefits of Getting Kybella?

Kybella is the first and only non-surgical injectable FDA-approved treatment to reduce the fat accumulated under the chin.

It offers the following benefits:
• It is a minimally invasive treatment with little or no downtime.
• With Kybella, there is no need for invasive liposuction surgery.
• Since destroyed fat does not grow back, repeat treatment is not required.
• It can take years off your appearance by giving you a nicely sculpted jawline.

If you have submental fat, then Kybella is your go-to treatment to achieve a better-looking chin that can make you look several years younger.

Are You a Suitable Candidate for Kybella?

To receive Kybella treatment, you must be a suitable candidate. The following questions help determine Kybella candidature:
• Are you an adult?
• Have you had any cosmetic procedures done before?
• Do you take anti-inflammatory drugs regularly?
• Do you have an infection, rash, or wound in the treatment area?
• Do you have trouble swallowing?
• Do you smoke regularly?

How Does Dr. Chow Administer Kybella?

Kybella treatment is administered by Dr. Chow, who is trained to perform the treatment. Dr. Chow will inject the area under your chin multiple times with Kybella. The number of injections you receive will depend on the amount of fat you have stored under your chin and what your goals and expectations from the treatment are.

No more than six Kybella treatment sessions are recommended per individual. Also, these sessions must be spaced out at least a month apart.
