Feeling self-conscious about your double-chin? Tried diet and exercise and still see your double-chin? A double-chin or submental fat affects both men and women and could be the result of aging, diet, and genetics. A double-chin is caused by an extra layer of fat that develops under the chin. In 2015, the FDA approved a drug to target double-chins without liposuction or surgery. Kybella is a nonsurgical injectable technique used to target fat beneath the chin without any incisions.
How does Kybella work?
Kybella acts the same as deoxycholic acid that your body naturally produces. The Kybella procedure uses deoxycholic acid injections to breakdown fat cells beneath the chin. The number of small injections administered to the chin at each session will vary per person. A numbing cream or ice pack will help alleviate any discomfort caused by the injections. Once the fat cells are destroyed that area will no longer store fat. The breakdown of the fat cells is then re-absorbed back into the body. The number of treatments will vary per person based on their fullness. For the best results, multiple treatments may be recommended. You may experience mild bruising, redness, and swelling following the procedure.

- Jawline Definition
- Long-lasting Results with Stable Weight
