A double chin is caused by several different factors. Genetics can cause a double chin even in someone that is thin. Being overweight and aging factors are common causes. A double chin happens when a second layer of fat attaches to the underside of the chin. When you look downward it can become prominent. It is also noticeable from a profile view. Sagging skin can also pull the double chin into full view. Getting rid of the double has become an extensive topic. Once believed that it could not be changed, innovations in procedures have created many options to choose. Depending on multiple factors like the cause of the chin, the potential for it to return, and the downtime after the procedure there is a lot to consider. Luckily, KYBELLA® exists to reduce your double chin in a quick and minimally-invasive manner.
KYBELLA® is an injectable solution that is like your body’s natural acid it uses to dissolve fat. The procedure takes only about 10 minutes and is performed in the physician’s office. After numbing the area, a series of injections are done in a personalized ratio, directly into the double chin.
There is very little discomfort with KYBELLA®. Many describe it as a pinch and warmth that gets better within minutes. The fat cells are dissolved permanently. There is no need for multiple treatments or worry about the fat returning. They are completely eradicated.
It takes about 4 weeks to see the full results of KYBELLA®, but it may take up to 8 weeks. Those factors that caused the double chin to come into play here. Good results are available, no matter the method you choose. It is important to speak with a physician about the options. Consider your lifestyle and the requirements of each solution before choosing.
