Kybella for Getting Rid of a Double Chin
Kybella is an FDA-approved injection that uses the power of deoxycholic acid to damage submental fat cells, eventually causing them to be removed by the body’s metabolic processes. Deoxycholic acid is unique in that it goes right after fat cells, but leaves surrounding healthy cells untouched.
Most patients only need one or two Kybella injections to see ideal results, which includes a more contoured jawline and a visible reduction in chin fat.
Does Kybella Hurt?
Kybella doesn’t hurt, but some patients may feel a little uncomfortable with the pinching sensation that comes with any needle injection. For that reason, we can treat the targeted area with a numbing cream before proceeding with your Kybella session.
