Excess skin and tissue can accumulate below the jawline as a result of genetics, aging, or weight gain. Despite diet and exercise, this submental fat is often unresponsive and, when caused by genetics, does not go away with weight loss. Kybella is an injectable that helps with this challenging area and reduces fullness under the chin. Created from deoxycholic acid, this molecule is used by the body to help in the breakdown and absorption of unwanted fat. Kybella is injected into the fatty tissue under the chin and slowly dissolves targeted fat cells. As the fatty tissue is broken down, the body safely reabsorbs the cells. The skin will become smooth and taut, crating a sculped contour under the chin.
Kybella typically requires between two and six treatments, depending on the heaviness of the chin and neck area. It is about a 30 minute process with zero downtime. However, there may be some temporary swelling, redness, and tenderness around the treatment area that will resolve itself in a few days.
