Want to put an end to your double chin – but can’t seem to target it through diet and exercise?
You’re not alone. Submental fat (the fat located underneath your chin) is notoriously difficult to get rid of. Most chin fat can only be targeted through significant weight loss; even then, submental fat could be genetic, meaning you’re more prone to storing fat underneath your chin.
That’s why so many people are excited about Kybella!
Kybella is a deoxycholic acid injection that’s FDA-approved for the treatment of chin fat. With just one injection, clients can see a significant fat reduction. Best of all, Kybella leads to permanent results, making it one of the most effective non-surgical treatments for the reduction of chin fat.
Many clients wonder if Kybella is safe to use. As the FDA has cleared these injections for use, clients can be sure that they’re experiencing a safe treatment. Kybella’s deoxycholic acid works by destroying cells located within the submental fat; the acid doesn’t touch surrounding healthy tissue. Kybella comes with minor side effects. Most clients report feeling a slight itching or burning sensation after the injection.
Kybella comes with minor side effects. Most clients report feeling a slight itching or burning sensation after the injection. In addition, the swelling will be visible for a few weeks. Results are permanent and can be seen within a few months; however, it’s important to already follow a healthy diet and exercise regimen, as Kybella cannot prevent the formation of new fat cells. Some patients may need more than one Kybella injection to see their best results.
The best candidates for Kybella treatments have moderate chin fat and excellent skin elasticity. Some clients may need skin-tightening treatments after Kybella injections to see results.
