What causes a double chin?
Excess fat beneath your skin, also known as a double chin, is a common side effect of weight gain or obesity. However, other factors can influence your risk for developing this fat, including your age, your diet, and family history.
As you get older and your hormones change, stubborn fat can become resistant to diet and exercise, including the fat found underneath the chin.
You may also be at higher risk for developing a double chin if a close family member has the condition.
What is Kybella?
Kybella is an injectable treatment that targets excess fat beneath your skin. Each injection contains prescription deoxycholic acid that helps your body break down excess chin fat. Once the acid destroys the fat cells, your body absorbs and eliminates them naturally through the lymphatic system.
As the fat breaks down over time, you can notice a significant improvement in your chin and overall profile, with slimmer contours and less fullness.
Kybella is a suitable treatment for adults older than 18 who are in otherwise good health and unhappy with their double chin appearance. Dr. Seman can determine if this treatment is right for you after a thorough evaluation and a discussion of your cosmetic goals.
How long do Kybella results last?
The injections destroy the structure of the fat cells, killing them off for good. They can no longer store excess fat and you shouldn’t need additional Kybella treatments after you reach your target goal.
As long as you maintain a healthy diet and daily exercise routine, you can expect the results of Kybella injections to last for years. Additional maintenance treatments may be needed in the future if you gain or lose weight or due to age-related issues.
How many Kybella injections do I need?
Dr. Seman can determine the number of treatments you need based on your individual needs. Typically, you can expect two monthly sessions to eliminate all excess fullness below the chin.
Treatment times are fast and last less than 30 minutes. You can expect to go back to work or your usual activities without any limitations or downtime.
