Do Injections For Double Chin Work?

Would you like your stubborn double chin to disappear? Kybella may be just what you need. Kybella is a fat dissolving injection that is specially designed for melting away fat under the chin. Chances are you already know about chin liposuction and neck lift surgery so you’re wondering – Do injections for double chin work.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is a cosmetic injectable treatment that is FDA approved for reducing submental fat (fat below the chin). The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body that assists with the breakdown of dietary fat (click here to learn more).

How injections for double chin work

A single Kybella session involves multiple injections being made in the extra fat below the chin. When Kybella is injected into the treatment area it destroys the cell membrane and breaks down the fat. The fat is then metabolized and flushed from the body over the course of the following 2-3 months. This process results in a noticeable decrease in the amount of fat below the chin, and creates a more defined profile.

Are there any side-effects

The side effects of Kybella treatment are temporary and may include swelling, bruising, numbness, and redness.

How many Kybella treatments do I need

The number of sessions required will vary depending on the amount of submental fat that needs to be treated. However, most patients undergo a series of 4-6 sessions.

When will I see results

It typically takes 4-6 weeks to see the best results, because the body takes time to metabolize the treated fat.
