Kybella: The Double Chin Eliminator
A crisp jawline is a sign of youth and beauty, while a double chin can make you look older and heavier, no matter your age and weight. This area is often extremely resistant to diet and exercise; until recently liposuction or a face and/or neck lift had been the only option for removal of this stubborn fat. Kybella, an FDA approved treatment to slim down the underside of the jaw, is now available, eliminating the need for liposuction or other invasive surgical procedures. Here's what you need to know:
What is Kybella?
Kybella® is a man-made form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring material found in our bodies that helps breakdown and absorb fat. Kybella is the first and only FDA approved injectable treatment to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe submental fat (fat below the chin).
How does Kybella Work?
While some patients experience no side effects, some have reported swelling, bruising, redness, numbness, and some pain around the treatment area. Typically, these symptoms might last two to three days.
