How Kybella Treats a Double Chin
Kybella injections contain deoxycholic acid, a molecule that occurs naturally in the body. This destroys fat cells and encourages the body the absorb them. After completing your treatments, results are typically long-term and patients usually do not require additional treatment sessions.
Submental fullness is a common problem that resists normal weight loss measures like diet and exercise. Both men and women experience double chins, which are usually caused by a combination of factors including genetics, weight gain and aging.

- People are as bothered by submental fullness as they are by facial lines and wrinkles

Though there are possible mild side effects including swelling, bruising and discomfort, patients are usually able to return to their regular activities right away. They will begin seeing noticeable results in the coming weeks.
