When you look in the mirror, have you noticed that you have developed a double chin? Excess fat has caused your face to appear longer and heavier, no matter how much you exercise or regulate your diet. So, what can you do to erase the loose, saggy chin? Traditionally, the only way to get rid of fatty tissue was to under go surgery, such as a liposuction. In addition to being painful and time consuming, liposuction procedures are also expensive and require a lengthy amount of recovery time before you can return to your normal activities. Fortunately, there is a newly FDA approved fat removal option available for double chins called Kybella.

Kybella is a non-invasive treatment that requires only a series of injections. Kybella incorporates a safe substance called deoxycholic acid, which naturally exists in the human body and helps break down and remove fat cells. Kybella harnesses this natural substance and targets specific pockets of fatty tissue, such as under the chin, to achieve gradual, long-lasting results.

What is a Kybella Session Like?

First, it is important to consult with a board-certified cosmetic dermatologist with training and experience administering Kybella to determine whether the injections are right for you. Kybella can only target fatty tissue and will not produce results for double chins that are caused by loose, excess skin.

The Kybella session includes simply injecting the solution into specific areas of the chin to get the best possible results. Skilled cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Melda Isaac of MI Skin has a strong track record of success when it comes to treating double chins with Kybella and understands how to work to suit each patient’s unique needs. Each Kybella session lasts no more than 20 minutes and can cause swelling, bruising, redness, and even numbness in the treated area. These side effects may only last for a day or two, which is why so many patients choose to undergo the procedure on a Friday or Saturday. By the time the side effects have subsided, the patients can return to work or daily life without anyone knowing that they had a cosmetic treatment.

Most patients need only a series of two to six Kybella sessions, spaced out once per month, to achieve full results. The final results will be visible within four to six weeks after the final treatment session. While the process may seem lengthy and the results are gradual, the convenience of needing only a few sessions of injections is ideal compared to the pain and recovery time necessary for liposuctions. Best of all, Kybella produces results that are long-lasting because the treated fat cells can no longer accumulate or store fat.
