You can reshape your jawline, chin and lower face using Kybella. It is commonly used to treat double-chin and other related aesthetics in order to enhance your appearance and reduce fat around your chin and neck. The treatment can be used in other places as well.
Kybella injections dissolve fat cells and shrink small pockets of extra fat. Kybella is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, which is an enzyme that occurs naturally in the gut. Kybella is the only injectable approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) to permanently reduce fat around the lower face and is commonly used to treat 'double chin' syndrome. It is especially used in precise areas which can not be treated with Coolsculpting.
Kybella treatment typically requires several injections and patients often need several treatment sessions to get their desired results. Generally 3-4 sesions are enough to get the results you want. Kybella isn’t usually the fat-reduction treatment of choice for large areas like thighs, where a noninvasive body sculpting treatments like CoolSculpting can deliver greater results.
If you choose to treat a double chin with Kybella, your outcome will depend on your anatomy. Specifically, how much excess fat needs to be dissolved and the elasticity of your skin.
Most doctors suggest two treatments before you'll notice major results, and opinions differ on how long patients should wait in between procedures. Once you’ve achieved your desired results - the fat cells are gone, they’re gone permanently. However, remaining fat cells may expand if you gain weight, which can diminish your lasting results.
