If you’re following a healthy lifestyle – we’re talking clean eating and working out – it’s probably incredibly frustrating to still be plagued by facial fat. While the face needs fat (it helps preserve a more youthful appearance), aging and the downward pull of gravity can often cause those fat pads to drift down towards the jawline. That means many people might develop excessive under chin fat, even if they’re following healthy habits.
Fortunately, there are plenty of treatments out there that can help treat stubborn fat located underneath the chin – and one of the most powerful is Kybella.
Released in 2015, Kybella is already promising to be a game changer for patients who want a more contoured and visible jawline. The secret behind the FDA-approved injections success is the use of deoxycholic acid as the main ingredient. Once injected into submental (under chin) tissue, this naturally occurring acid eats away at fat cells while preserving surrounding healthy tissue. Over time, these fat cells are flushed out, leaving behind a contoured appearance that highlights your jawline.
Many patients are curious as to how many Kybella treatments they need to see results. There’s good news there as well: most people only need two 30-minute Kybella injection to see good results. Patients with more severe under chin fat may need an additional Kybella treatment.
Results from Kybella treatments can be seen within eight to twelve weeks. Best of all, they’re permanent; once fat cells are destroyed, they don’t come back.
