Get Rid of Your Double Chin

When it comes to underchin fat, sometimes diet and exercise just won’t get rid of it. Submental fat (the fat that’s located under the chin and around the jawline) can be difficult to reduce, as some people are genetically predisposed to store fat here.  Add to the fact that the area can be difficult to contour without total weight loss, and it’s no wonder many people struggle with a double chin or jowls.

That’s where Kybella comes into play.  This new FDA-approved injection contains deoxycholic acid, a special and naturally occurring compound that eats away at fat cells located underneath the chin and around the jawline.  This acid preserves healthy tissue while targeting fat, leading to a much more contoured appearance.

Kybella injections for underchin fat are now available at MDCosmedX Laser & Lipo Center in Bowling Green, KY.

What Happens During the Treatment?

Kybella is delivered in the form of an injection, making the treatment relatively simple yet highly effective.  Kybella will be injected underneath the chin and around the jawline to help produce your desired results.   During the procedure – which takes less than 30 minutes – patients may experience minor burning and discomfort at the injection site.

Kybella starts eating away at fat cells right away. Since the treatment relies on the body’s natural waste removal processes to get rid of fat, final results are usually visible within three months.

While Kybella works to reduce fat, it cannot prevent the formation of new fat cells.  Therefore, it’s important for patients to follow a healthy diet and exercise regimen if they want to maintain these results.

Does the Treatment Hurt?

Kybella is delivered via needle injection, which means some patients may experience some discomfort.  If needed, topical numbing creams and ice can be applied to the injection site to manage discomfort.

After the injection, some patients have reported feeling a mild burning sensation.  This side effect typically resolves itself within a week.

Is There Any Downtime?

There is no downtime associated with Kybella injections for underchin fat.  In fact, given the length of time associated with the treatment, it’s often referred to as a “lunchtime procedure”, meaning patients can be in and out during their lunch break.
