If you eat right and work out, it might be frustrating to continually see your double chin resist your dedicated efforts. Sure, the rest of your body might be responding to all of your hard work, but unfortunately, all you can notice is that little excess fat underneath your chin and around your jawline.

Sounds familiar? You’re not alone – in fact, many people are genetically prone to carrying extra fat around their lower facial region. While this explains why it’s so hard to lose a double chin, it does mean that you’ll need more than diet and exercise to get rid of it.

Enter Kybella, an FDA-approved deoxycholic acid injection that’s designed to eat away at those persistent submental fat cells. While Kybella was introduced as recently as 2015, it’s already becoming the most popular non-surgical solution to get rid of a double chin. In fact, it’s efficacy is so exciting that many plastic surgeons are beginning to use Kybella to treat other stubborn fat pockets, like bra rolls, armpit fat, and even tummy pooches.

Here’s how it works:

  • Kybella is an injection, which means the treatment is injected directly into the submental (under chin) fat.
  • Once the deoxycholic acid is introduced to submental fat cells, it eats away at the cells, causing them to shrink in size. The acid leaves surrounding healthy tissue untouched.
  • Over a period of eight to 10 weeks, the body’s metabolic systems flush out the damaged fat cells, leading to a significant and noticeable reduction in underchin fat.

Interesting in learning if Kybella is the right non-surgical solution for your double chin fat?
