Double Chin Treatment: Kybella Injectable Fat Removal Before & After Photos
Kybella is highly effective for removing unwanted fat in the chin area.
Kybella is a nonsurgical treatment option to permanently remove unwanted chin fat commonly referred to as a “double chin.” Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a synthetic and sterile equivalent to the molecule naturally-produced by the body. In its natural form, deoxycholic acid is a bile acid produced by the gallbladder to break down dietary fat in the gut. Scientists have exploited this natural process to create an injectable solution that dissolves and permanently reduces small areas of unwanted fat in areas such as the chin, sometimes referred to as submental fullness.
Dr. Palm is a clinical investigator, physician instructor, and co-author of published medical articles on Kybella. During the clinical trials conducted at Art of Skin MD, Dr. Palm found that Kybella treatment is highly effective for treatment of double chin fat. Kybella is conducted as a series of treatments, usually spaced about 2 months apart. Kybella treatment is completed in office during a short injection procedure. Swelling, mild redness, and temporary numbness in the treatment area are common and typically mild following treatment.
Kybella is highly effective for unwanted fat in the chin area. The key to successful treatment is treating with multiple sessions with a proper amount of Kybella. Larger chin and necks require more Kybella and possibly more sessions to yield dramatic results. For patients seeking a nonsurgical in-office treatment for unwanted fat in the chin area, Kybella is an FDA-approved and appropriate treatment.
