While a double chin is normally associated with being overweight, it’s possible to have one even if you are otherwise in generally good shape. In fact, if you lose a significant amount of weight, you may be dismayed to discover you still have extra fat in the chin and neck area, which we call submental fat. Fortunately, at Glendale Dermatology, we have a solution to this problem, known as Kybella®.
What Is Kybella®?
Have you always dreamed of being able to just get a shot to melt away fat? Your dream has come true. Kybella® is a product designed for chin fat removal that does just that. This double chin treatment is composed of a synthetic version of a natural substance called deoxycholic acid. The purpose of this natural substance is to break down fat in your body. When injected directly under the skin in the chin area Kybella® dissolves much of that submental fat, which your body then flushes away over time.
How Effective Is Kybella® for Double Chin Removal?
After Kybella® treatments, many people feel significant neck skin tightening and notice dramatic changes to their profile. Remember that both chin fat removal and neck fat removal may take a few weeks to be fully apparent as the fat breaks down and leaves your system over time.
Is Kybella® Safe?
This is an FDA-approved chin fat treatment that is well-tolerated and does not have significant side effects in most cases. The members of our team are well-trained as injectors and know exactly how to safely administer this treatment.
