We all want to feel and look our best. However, there’s a common kind of fat that can keep us from looking our best. That can make us look heavier, regardless of whether or not we’ve actually gained any weight. That fat? Submental fullness, also known as “double chin” fat.

But what if there were an easy way to trim down stubborn double chin fat, making you look 10 pounds lighter with absolutely no surgery? Now there is— and it’s called Kybella.

What Is Kybella?

Kybella is a fast, non-surgical way of getting rid of stubborn fat below the chin. Kybella was specifically designed to treat this submental fullness (a clinical term for what is colloquially called “double chin” fat).

How Does It Work?

Kybella’s active ingredient is deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body. The deoxycholic acid in our bodies is the substance that breaks down and absorbs our dietary fat. When Kybella is injected below the chin, the administered deoxycholic acid works just like it would naturally, breaking down and absorbing fat.

Kybella is also a permanent treatment. Meaning, after your desired amount of fat has been broken down, no maintenance is needed.

What Is Getting Kybella Like?

Kybella is administered over the course of 1-6 short sessions that take place one month apart. The sessions consist of a series of strategic injections and take about 15 to 20 minutes.

When Will I See Results?

The results of each Kybella session can be seen about 4-6 weeks after the treatment. How many sessions you will need (from 1 to 6) will depend on the amount of submental fullness you have and your desired results.

Is Kybella Right For Me?

Kybella can be right for anyone who is looking to reduce their “double chin” fat. Submental fat is often one of the most stressful kinds of fat for many people, among both men and women. Often, people may exercise regularly and eat incredibly well— but still have stubborn fat below the chin.

Submental fullness often occurs simply because of a genetic predisposition and can’t be helped by traditional fat loss methods. Also, the way our bodies store fat changes over time. Many people may not have had much submental fat in their youth but find that, as they age, they see more and more submental fat accumulate.
