Do you have excess fat below your chin, otherwise known as a ‘double-chin’? If so, you’ll be pleased to learn about Kybella treatment – the first and only non-surgical treatment approved by the FDA for use in reducing the fat beneath your chin.
How Kybella Treatment Works
Kybella is a sterile solution that contains deoxycholic acid, a compound used to break down fat cells so they can be safely absorbed into the bloodstream. During Kybella treatment, the solution is gently injected into various sites in your chin, where it slowly disintegrates excess fat cells. In most cases, patients will see a significant improvement in their chin profile within 2-4 treatments.
What to Expect During Kybella Treatment
While most patients experience minimal discomfort during Kybella treatments, some do report having minor swelling, bruising and/or pain at the injection sites, and throughout the jaw and chin area for a short time after having the injection. This swelling and discomfort can usually be managed using ice packs and over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medications.
