What Is Kybella And How Can It Help With Chin Fat?

Get ready to say goodbye to that pesky double chin with a shot of Kybella. This injectable treatment has gained popularity among those who don’t want to opt for liposuction and are happy to wait up to six months to see results. The Kybella injection contains an active ingredient called deoxycholic acid, which is a natural acid that occurs in the body. Used to zap away chin fat, Kybella will leave you feeling fabulous and confident.

To give you the best-informed position, we’re here with an in-depth overview of how Kybella works, who’s a good candidate and what to expect from this popular non-surgical treatment. So keep reading to learn more about Kybella and how it can help with chin fat.

The Basics — What Is Kybella?

As far as magical potions go, Kybella has been called that from time to time. This is mostly because it makes double chins disappear faster than many other treatments available in the cosmetic industry.

This non-surgical treatment uses deoxycholic acid, which is a fancy and scientific way of referring to a naturally-occurring acid in your body. Used to break down and eliminate chin fat, deoxycholic acid acts as a supercharged substance that removes the extra layer protruding under your jawline. Once the fat cells have been broken down and destroyed, your body can no longer accumulate or store more fat in that area. So you can say goodbye to the fullness under your chin that’s been bugging you every time you look in the mirror.

With a Kybella injection, you’ll see a sleeker, sexier profile that’s FDA-approved and loved and endorsed by many. That’s how you know it’s the real deal.

Causes & Concerns Of Chin Fat

The infamous double chin, also known as submental fat, is a common cosmetic concern that can make people feel self-conscious, and even frustrated at times. Submental fat deposits under the jawline lead to the formation of a double chin and the causes for it are many. You can blame it on genetics, weight gain, ageing and even poor posture. The essential point is that chin fat is an unsightly and pesky problem that can affect anyone.

Putting the causes aside, submental fat comes with its own concerns including feeling uncomfortable in photos, constantly adjusting your clothes and pose to hide it, or even switching off your video during a Zoom call with your colleagues or clients. With a shot of Kybella, those will all be a thing of the past. Eliminate the chin fat and get a more defined jawline with Kybella as an option.

The Kybella Shot — How Does It Work?

With the ultimate fat-blasting injection on your side, Kybella can do no wrong. Working almost like a magical elixir, a treatment of Kybella uses the naturally-derived deoxycholic acid to literally melt away chin fat so you’re left with a boost of confidence and a jawline that could cut glass.

So, how many Kybella treatments do you really need? Most cosmetic professionals recommend at least three treatments for the best results — so no more double chin selfies! Like all treatments, Kybella needs several weeks between treatments to eliminate most of the chin fat. As a non-surgical answer to your chin fat woes, Kybella works by breaking down fat cells in the targeted area. Your body then flushes these cells out over time resulting in a contoured jawline.

Results can show in as little as two weeks but it’s possible that it could take longer. Ultimately, it comes down to how your body responds to the treatment. Most patients are pleased with the smooth and tapered profile and the treatment lasts for a long time. If you’re looking to achieve the best outcome, maintaining a stable body weight through good nutrition and regular exercise will massively help.

Who Is The Kybella Injection For?

Battling a double chin with no success can feel like an uphill struggle. Even after doing all the right things, including a good diet, exercise and skincare routine, your chin fat refuses to budge. With Kybella, you’re in the perfect position to shrink your chin and hone your jawline.

Not sure if you fulfil the Kybella criteria? It all comes down to a few factors such as whether you have mild to moderate chin fat and good skin elasticity. So if your chin is easy to stretch and has just enough fat, you could benefit from a few shots of Kybella.

As a non-surgical treatment, the Kybella injection is incredibly ideal as it has a minimal recovery time so you can reduce your sagging chin fat in a convenient and effective way. But it’s also worth noting that it’s important to maintain your healthy lifestyle to get the most out of the Kybella treatment on a long-term basis.

Like with all treatments, the best way to figure out if you’re a good candidate for Kybella is to speak to a board-certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist who works in the field of cosmetic treatments. They’re the experts and can give you the best opinion.

Are There Any Side Effects To Kybella Treatment?

If, after reading all of this, you’re ready to take the plunge with Kybella, it’s worth taking a quick pause to read more about its possible side effects and risks.

Kybella is considered a safe treatment across the board and is generally effective as a treatment for chin fat. The most common side effects involve swelling of the area, bruising of the skin around the chin and numbness in the treated area. Some people have experienced pain, redness and hardness in the area where Kybella has been injected.

In very rare cases, there have been severe complications such as nerve damage or finding it difficult to swallow. These are few and far between, which is why it’s always important to do your research and speak to qualified medical professionals. This way, you know you’re taking the best course of action with the Kybella treatment when you decide to blast the chin fat.

Chin Up: The Non-Surgical Solution To Chin Fat

So there you have it. Kybella seems to be a popular and powerful solution in the fight against chin fat. As a non-surgical treatment that’s being administered more frequently, Kybella has become known for its effective elimination of stubborn double chins. A more defined and youthful jawline has become easier to attain as long as it’s combined with a healthy and fit lifestyle.
