The Kybella Conundrum: What Is Kybella and Does It Work?

Are you self-conscious of your double chin and have tried almost everything to get rid of it? Did you know there’s a treatment out there that specifically helps with stubborn chin fat?

If you’re looking to get that sharp jawline you’ve always dreamed of then a Kybella treatment is for you! Keep reading to find out more about what Kybella is and if it’s for you.

What Is Kybella?

Kybella is a permanent FDA-approved non-surgical injection treatment consisting of deoxycholic acid which is a bile acid that’s produced in the liver that helps to break down and metabolize fat in the body.

The acid in Kybella treatments is injected under the chin and jaw as a spot reduction for chin fat. The chin treatment is a permanent solution to chin fat and takes more than one session of treatment to see the best results.

How Does It Work?

Kybella is injected in a few spots under the chin to distribute the acid in the area. The acid will then break down and metabolize the subcutaneous fat under the chin and filter it out through your body’s natural filtration system.

Typically people will see some results after the first session, but will likely need around three to five sessions of the cosmetic injection. There is also little to no downtime as minor swelling after injection is the most common side effect.

Who Does Kybella Work Best For?

Kybella will work best for people who are in and around 10-15 pounds of their goal weight. The reason being is that Kybella won’t work to reduce saggy skin from rapid weight loss and shouldn’t be used as the only method for weight loss.

People who choose to get Kybella done will still need to keep up with physical activity to keep their body’s healthy and maintain results.

Where Can I Get Kybella Done?

Kybella services are approved as a chin treatment and cannot be injected in other areas. They are available at both qualified esthetician spas and dermatology clinics.

Individuals need to go through extensive training to provide the best results and safe practices. If you choose to go with a spa offering Kybella treatment, be sure to check on their qualifications and certification so that you are in safe and capable hands.

Be the Envy of Jawlines Everywhere

Kybella is a great treatment option for spot-reducing stubborn double chin fat to get a more defined and sharp jawline. It’s great for individuals who are in the process of losing weight or if they have lost weight but the double chin didn’t disappear on its own.

Be sure to talk with your treatment provider to help you decide whether Kybella is the right procedure for you.
