Can I Fix My Double Chin with Kybella™ Treatments?

Hold Your Head High with Kybella Treatments

If you are distressed because of a double chin (medically known as submental fullness), you may find it an unpleasant sight and difficult or impossible to reduce or eliminate. Fat can accumulate under the chin for any number of reasons, ranging from simple genetics to weight gain or aging. Luckily, there is something you can do about it, and it’s non-surgical!

What Is Kybella?

As the first and only FDA-approved injections for double chin treatment, Kybella’s active ingredient, ATX 101, aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Upon injection, it dissolves and destroys the fat cells under the chin and restores and transforms the look of your jawline while permanently eliminating a double chin (note: usually at least 3 treatments are required for optimal results).

Kybella is highly effective, safe, and useful if you have a little or a lot of fat under your chin. Some of the benefits of Kybella include:

  • It’s quick: Most treatments take less than 30 minutes to complete.
  • There’s minimal or no downtime: You can return to regular activities as soon as you leave the office, or as soon as you feel ready.
  • It’s effective: Kybella has been proven effective and offers you the chance to get rid of a double chin without the need for incisions or invasive surgeries like liposuction.
  • The results are permanent: Once the fat cells have been destroyed, they do not regenerate.

Quick Double Chin Elimination

At Advanced Dermatology Center, we customize your Kybella treatments based on the amount of fat to be removed and your desired jawline profile. If you are a good candidate, our dermatologist will schedule your treatment sessions for the necessary appointments for a series of injections. Most patients notice a visible difference in their chin and jawline after just 2 to 4 treatments, but you may need as many as 6 treatments for the best results. After completing treatment, there is no further need for more Kybella injections, because it provides permanent results.
