Have you heard of Kybella? It’s a new, FDA-approved treatment that can dissolve submental fat, aka the “double chin.” Kybella is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment that can permanently remove stubborn double chin fat. But many men wonder: does Kybella work for men?
In short, the answer is yes, Kybella absolutely works for men! In fact, Kybella is one of the most popular med spa treatments for men. Around 20% of all med spa patients are men, but around 40% of all Kybella patients are men. So, why is Kybella so popular among men? How does it work and what can it do for you? In this post, we’ll talk about why men get Kybella and how Kybella works to permanently reduce double chin fat.
Why Do Men Get Kybella?
There are two reasons that men get Kybella. One, for the cosmetic benefit. Even with good diet and exercise, some people simply can’t get rid of their double chin fat, including men. This stubborn submental fat is often just the result of unlucky genetics, making it incredibly frustrating to deal with. But with Kybella, men can dissolve this stubborn fat, giving them a more chiseled, defined look.
The other reason men get Kybella may surprise you: men often get Kybella to be more comfortable in their clothing. One of the most common complaints we hear from men is that their submental fat causes clothes to fit poorly around their neck, especially when wearing a tie. Having excess fat around the chin can make a tie feel like it’s choking you, but loosening a tie makes menswear look sloppy. So, many men get Kybella to solve this problem.
How Does Kybella Work?
Kybella is a quick, non-invasive treatment. Kybella is delivered to the body through injections. The active ingredient in Kybella is synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, a molecule that naturally occurs in the body. Deoxycholic acid is the body’s way of breaking down and absorbing dietary fat. When this deoxycholic acid is injected into the double chin area, it works to destroy fat cells permanently. When these cells are destroyed, they can no longer absorb fat, leading to a drastic reduction of the fat in the treated area.
Kybella is done over a series of 1 to 6 sessions, which varies depending on your unique body and your goals for treatment. These sessions are done one month apart and each takes only around 15 to 20 minutes. The results of each session are seen around 4 to 6 weeks afterward.
After your desired fat reduction goal is reached, the results of Kybella are permanent and no maintenance treatments are needed.
