A double chin can be an embarrassing trait for a lot of people. Not only does it make a person look more full in the face, it can make them feel more self-conscious and insecure about their look.

Unfortunately, if you have a prominent double chin, it will be visible in a photo, especially a close-up picture. You can say goodbye to those perfect selfie moments. There is always an option of going for surgery to get it removed. But what about those who cannot afford surgery or simply do not want to undergo an invasive procedure.

Well, there’s good news for all who suffer from this issue! Kybella may be the answer to those double-chin related problems. It can help get rid of the double chin without you having to undergo surgery.

What Is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA approved injectable that’s designed to assist in the bodies elimination of excess fat in the chin area when it’s injected. This will ultimately help you get rid of that double chin.

The primary active ingredient in kybella is deoxycholic acid – a chemical that is found naturally in our bodies. This molecule is known to aid in the body’s ability to break down and absorb dietary fat. A note of caution, however, Kybella is not recommended for any other body part.

Kybella is injected in the base of the chin and completely destroys the fat cells in that area by breaking them down and making them easier for your body to absorb. The best part about this treatment is that it is almost permanent. Once the fat cells are destroyed, they will not be able to grow in size anymore.

So the look that you achieve after the Kybella treatment will essentially stay. You should remember, however, that if you gain weight, there’s a chance that it may return.

What to Expect During the Procedure

Before you directly jump into taking the injections, you will have to consult a doctor who will examine your chin and determine if you are a suitable candidate for the Kybella treatment. They will then direct you to a certified practitioner who will recommend a customized Kybella treatment plan that will suit your needs.

At each session, the certified practitioner will inject multiple small injections into your under-chin area. Each session will last for less than half an hour. How many injections you have to take will depend on how intense the fat below your chin is, which is why you need to consult a specialist before opting for the treatment.

Sessions are usually well spaced out to give your chin time to heal and let your body absorb the fat.

AFter your treatment, you may experience some bruising, swelling, and redness around your chin. This will heal with time. That’s it! The procedure is that easy and simple! It is the perfect, non-invasive solution for your double-chin issues. Read up about it, consult a specialist, go for the treatment and flaunt your perfect chin to the world! Good Luck!
