If you are tired of trying to get rid of unwanted fat under your chin, without any results, Kybella might be the perfect treatment for you. When fat collects under the chin it can contribute to the appearance of a double chin, potentially affecting one’s confidence.. When diet and exercise don’t seem to be working on their own, a non-surgical intervention may be necessary to reach your aesthetic goals. Living Young Center for Health & Anti-Aging is here to help you through your entire aesthetic journey.

What Is Kybella?

Kybella is a prescription deoxycholic acid injection that is used to decrease the appearance of, or eliminate, submental fullness. Kybella works by breaking down the fat cells under the chin, which are then carried away as debris by the body. Kybella is designed to be administered over the course of several treatments. Some patients may need more than others, but after your final treatment, you should notice a significant improvement in the definition of your side profile. There are many benefits to Kybella, besides just helping you reach your aesthetic desires. These benefits include:

Non-Surgical Treatments

Kybella offers a permanent solution to submental fullness, without requiring you to go under the knife. Surgical treatments, like submental liposuction, exist to treat this concern, but require more downtime and recovery and are more invasive than treatments like Kybella.

No Harsh Side Effects or Complications

Every procedure, surgical or not, poses the risk of side effects. Luckily, Kybella’s are very minimal. The most common side effect that you can expect to experience is swelling at the injection site. This swelling is only temporary and, when it goes down, will reveal a less full chin.

Minimal Discomfort During treatment

Kybella is administered using a needle that is so fine, you barely feel it at all. A lidocaine numbing agent can be applied to the injection site to make you more comfortable during your procedure, but most patients do not even find this necessary.

Short In-Office Procedure

Kybella treatment is very quick. For one treatment session, you can be in and out of the office in just 30 minutes. Depending on how many injections you need, some patients can even conclude their session in less time.

No Downtime or Recovery Period

You do not need to take time off from work or life when you have Kybella treatments. Because this treatment is minimally invasive, there is no required downtime or recovery period. It is recommended that you do not get Kybella too soon before a big event due to the swelling.

Naturally Kills and Removes Unwanted Fat Cells

Kybella relies on the use of deoxycholic acid to remove unwanted fat cells. Deoxycholic acid is a secondary bile acid that naturally occurs in our bodies as a byproduct of intestinal bacteria. By harnessing its emulsification properties, we are able to reduce the appearance of a double chin without the use of any chemicals or additional additives.
