Most people deal with having a double chin, that hides their jawline. Even if they work out every day and follow a healthy diet, it may not be of any use. Most of the time, all the exercising and foods can’t help them get a nicely defined jawline.

People usually have no control over this, and as they age, the area under their chin and on the upper part of their neck starts to sag a little. People who have an enlarged thyroid have fullness under their jaws due to enlarged lymph nodes and not because of fat.

Whatever the case may be, a defined jawline is something we cannot work out naturally. Kybella is a new age fat melting injectable designed especially to correct the area under your chin.

What Is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA approved injectable that can break down and dissolve your chin fat and remove the double chin. At the same time, it will tighten the skin, giving your face and jaw a more defined and refined shape.

Kybella is a deoxycholic acid that is an injectable compound. This substance is present naturally in our body and helps in absorbing fat by amplifying the metabolism of dietary fat. It is a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment. Kybella is used for the treatment of moderate to severe submental fat or double chin.

How Does Kybella Work?

Synthetic deoxycholic acid is an active ingredient in Kybella. The active ingredient, is a molecule that occurs naturally in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.

It works by disrupting fat cell membranes, which causes the destruction of the fat cells. After injecting Kybella beneath the chin, it results in a noticeable reduction in the fullness of the double chin. This, in turn, tightens the skin around the chin area.

What Happens During A Kybella Procedure?

First, you consult with your doctor, the area under your chin is examined and your doctor will determine whether Kybella is right for you. Your doctor will then create a treatment that is right for you and the amount of fat present under your chin to achieve your aesthetic goals.

Each Kybella treatment session involves multiple small injections. First, your doctor will use a template and marker to identify the injection sites carefully. It helps in ensuring that Kybella is injected where it is intended and doesn’t stray toward the many nerves and muscles contained in your jaw.

A topical numbing anesthetic is administered by your doctor to avoid any discomfort during the procedure. Kybella is then injected directly into the skin under your chin.

The actual procedure lasts 15-20 minutes. As the fat starts dissolving, often within 15-30 minutes or less, you may notice swelling in the area due to your body’s inflammatory process. Your doctor will determine the number of injections that you require and sessions required to achieve your goal. It is a minimally-invasive treatment, so there is no downtime after the process is completed.

What Are The Results?

After the Kybella treatment, you will notice visible changes in your facial appearance. The double chin will no longer be a part of your face, and your jawline will look more toned and defined.
