Encinitas, CA patients discover non-surgical Kybella injections to treat the double chin
Kybella, is deoxycholic acid, and treatment with it under the chin is revolutionary. It is a natural substance, as it is the same substance our gall bladder uses to dissolve the fat we eat. It however, dissolves the fat under the chin creating a more well-defined jawline and contoured neck. Kybella is certainly your best option for the treatment of the double chin as it is the least invasive and is effective. Alternative treatments include liposuction and a surgical neck lift both with increased risk, cost and downtime when compared to Kybella.
How it worksThe fullness under the chin is due to the deposition of fat. This fat is present due to genetic and lifestyle factors. Kybella dissolves the fat therefore creating a more well defined angle of the jaw or neck-chin junction.
Treatment with Kybella is a stepwise process. You will have your first treatment and will start to notice results in 6-8 weeks. At 8 weeks, you will have a second injection session where the results are further enhanced. Occasionally, patients need a second round of injections which occur two months from the last injection.
What to expectThere is minimal to no downtime with Kybella injections. Immediately after the injections there is a warm sensation in the neck that resolves after about 30 minutes. During the first week post injection, you will notice your neck more when you turn your head as the fat is being liquified and taken out of your body. This feeling resolves within a week and is most noticeable to you.
