Under-chin fat can be part of your past with the help of Kybella injections. This revolutionary cosmetic dermatology treatment can dissolve submental fat deposits under your chin, giving you a more sculpted and younger looking chin and face. Submental fat deposits, like under the chin, are often resistant to diet or exercise and can occur even if you are not overweight. At Kayal Dermatology & Skin Cancer Specialists, we offer Kybella injections for our patients that are ready to lose that double chin.
Kybella injections contain deoxycholic acid which attacks fat cells. The cell membrane dissolves and the fat contained in the cell is reabsorbed by the body. The injections are strategically placed in the area under the chin, targeting the submental fat deposit. In most cases, 2-4 treatments are needed to get the desired results. The fat loss is considered permanent since the fat cells are destroyed. In a study of patients that used Kybella, 87% of those that achieved results maintained them for at least four years.
When Is Kybella the Right Treatment?
Kybella injections are a great option for those with excess fat under their chin that do not want to undergo plastic surgery or liposuction. This is a minimally invasive procedure that can be done in our office; plus, side effects and downtime are almost non-existent. Kybella is FDA-approved, safe and effective to reduce the appearance of under-chin fat while improving the contour of your chin and jawline.
