What is Kybella®?

Double chins are one of the least-liked facial features out there. Nobody wants a double chin, especially if you’ve made a conscious effort to get rid of it. You eat a healthy diet, you exercise all the time, but your chin just won’t change. The rest of your body may see impressive fat loss, yet the chin area remains stubborn! This is the reality for lots of people, and it’s usually down to genetics. Many of you are genetically predisposed to collecting fat under your chin, leading to the classic double chin look. Don’t fret, there are treatments available that can tackle this problem once and for all – including Kybella®. At Manhattan Aesthetics, we’re always leading the way by providing innovative treatments for all of your cosmetic issues.

Reduce Your Double Chin

If diet and exercise have no impact on your chin, you should consider Kybella® as a non-surgical way of dealing with the problem. This is a prescription injectable medication that’s FDA-approved to treat fat below the chin. It contains synthetic deoxycholic acid, which will break down the fat cells in the area. Our bodies produce this substance naturally, and this injection is used to damage the existing fat cells and stop the body from retaining fat under your chin. 

In essence, Kybella® is quite literally an injection that gets rid of double chins! 

What is Kybella® Treatment Like?

Kybella® is a non-invasive procedure that involves an injection under your chin. The whole process will last for around 15-20 minutes, and there aren’t any side effects to worry about. Your chin is inspected and assessed, your doctor finds the best place to insert the needle, and Kybella® is injected into you. That’s all there is to it, and you can leave without worrying about any downtime.

Benefits of Kybella®

For one, it’s scientifically proven to work. Kybella® uses a substance that occurs in your body with the specific role of breaking down dietary fat. By injecting this into your chin, you will directly target the fat cells in that area, seeing optimal results after 2 weeks. The best thing about Kybella® is that once the fat cells have been destroyed they won’t come back. So, as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, you can say goodbye to your double chin forever. The fact that no surgery is needed to remove your double chin is incredible. Typically, people expect to need some sort of surgical procedure to remove excess chin fat. The whole Kybella® treatment is over before you know it, making it easily accessible to all.

Am I a Candidate for Kybella® Treatments?

Having a double chin doesn’t automatically make you a good candidate for this treatment. Ideally, you should be healthy and within your ideal weight. It also helps if you have good skin elasticity, as this helps you see much better results. If you tick both of these boxes, then you just might be a great candidate for Kybella®. Seeing as it uses a natural substance that your body makes, it’s also safe for people with allergies.
