One of the problems that many women and men face as they age is the dreaded double chin. You can get a double chin if you gain and lose weight, or as the skin and fat under your chin stretches and loses its elasticity and sometimes it’s just heredity. In any case, the dreaded double chin doesn’t have to be permanent. There is now a new FDA approved treatment for eliminating the double chin without expensive surgery or recovery time.
Kybella is the first FDA approved treatment for the double chin. This injectable contains deoxycholic acid, which occurs naturally in the body to break down fat. The acid injected into your neck fat or double chin will break down and eliminate the fat in that area. With the treatment, fat will no longer be able to accumulate in the area. However, more than one treatment may be required to get the desired results.
What to Expect
Your appointment to get Kybella for resistant neck fat will be relatively short and painless. You should schedule your appointment for Kybella long before any upcoming events you might have, as you may have some swelling and irritation of the skin just after the injection. Otherwise, there is little preparation for Kybella treatments.
At your appointment, your doctor will inject the Kybella into your neck fat. You may experience some slight discomfort with the injection. After the injection, you can resume normal activities including washing your face and applying makeup.
Most people require more than one treatment of Kybella to get the desired results. Many people find that they get their desired results in two to three treatments. During clinical trials and case studies for Kybella, 59 percent of cases required up to six treatments for results to be satisfactory. However, because Kybella keeps fat cells from storing fat, once you reach your desired look you will never need a follow up treatment.
