What is Kybella?


Kybella is an injectable formula, and if you’d like to do something about your double chin, this treatment can likely help you. Deoxycholic acid is the active ingredient in Kybella®, and it’s effective for safely destroying the fat cells under your chin. The treatment will leave you with a restored, youthful appearance.

How Kybella® Can Eliminate Your Double Chin 

The effect that a double chin has on your appearance can make you look heavier or older, and even if you exercise regularly and eat well, you might still end up with a double chin. The Kybella® formula contains deoxycholic acid, which isn’t made from animal or human by-products.

The molecule occurs naturally within the body and helps with the absorption and breakdown of dietary fats. Kybella® is known for its ability to emulsify fat, and during the treatment, the formula is skillfully injected directly into the area beneath the chin.

What Causes a Double Chin?

The true cause of submental fullness isn’t known, but it’s believed that genetics play a major role in determining if you end up with a double chin. When you consume more calories than your body needs, it stores the extra calories as fat, and most people accumulate fat around the midsection, buttocks, thighs and waist. However, the fat might also accumulate under the neck and chin, which can contribute to the formation of a double chin.

Aging and genetics are two other factors that determine if you’ll get a double chin. Due to genetics, some people naturally have submental fullness, even though they’re extremely slim and practice regular exercise and dieting.

What are the Results Like?

Several studies have been performed to investigate the effectiveness of Kybella, and most patients enjoy satisfactory results. After 12 weeks, almost 70 percent of patients obtain moderate results, and a smaller percentage of patients enjoy a major improvement.

If you have a double chin and want to do something to change it, Kybella® could help. It’s especially useful for patients who’re constantly covering up their double chin with turtlenecks and scarves. If you’re ready to ditch your double chin and improve your appearance, Kybella® injections at About Face Anti-Aging Institute can dissolve unwanted fat and give your confidence a major boost.
