Commonly called a “double chin,” submental fat is a common concern. This pocket of fat under the chin is traditionally difficult to reduce. However, Kybella is an effective non-surgical alternative that can help achieve a more defined, slimer facial profile.
How Kybella Works
Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment for treating submental fat. Diet and exercise sometimes do very little for fat stored under the chin. This makes Kybella the perfect option for eliminating your double chin and contouring your jawline without surgery and without downtime.
Kybella mimics deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring substance that is found in the body. This substance helps to absorb, metabolize, and destroy fat. The Kybella substance is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid. When it is injected underneath the chin, it breaks down and destroys the fat cells in the area. The body naturally absorbs and processes the destroyed fat cells and eliminates them. Because deoxycholic acid is fast acting and effective, results from Kybella can be seen in just a few weeks.
