We’ve all seen unflattering pictures of ourselves in which our double chins may have become prevalent, whether it be accidentally opening our front-facing camera, or perhaps a particularly unflattering candid photograph. We become very aware and even self-conscious about double chins and dream of a well-defined jawline. If you have done everything in your power to get rid of that unwanted double chin and nothing seems to work, then Kybella may be your answer to finally achieving that chiseled jawline you have dreamed of.
What Causes Double Chins?
Double chins are caused when an excess layer of fat forms below your chin. While double chins are most commonly attributed to weight gain it may not always be the case. Looser skin, which is a direct result of the loss of our skin in elasticity as we age, can create the appearance of a double chin because the skin is no longer able to hold the fat around the chin as tightly as it did before.
Genetics may also be the cause of a double chin, if your family has a history of little elasticity in the skin it is very likely that you too will be predisposed to this.
How does Kybella work?
Kybella is currently the only FDA approved injectable treatment that can destroy fat cells underneath and around the chin for long-lasting results.
It's made up of deoxycholic acid; this acid is incredibly similar to the acid our own bodies make in order to dissolve fat. Kybella is injected into the skin in a serious of shots, once it enters the body and destroys the fat cells our body will remove them, and the results will be permanent. The procedure typically takes up to 20 minutes and is noninvasive. Results may be seen 4-6 weeks after the treatment is completed and the number of treatments needed will be dependent on the patient and what their goals are, injections will be applied 1 month apart.
