What is Kybella?

Kybella is an injectable that diminishes the appearance of double chins. While there are many treatment approaches for double chins today, Kybella is unique because it’s a fast-dissolving treatment that doesn’t require incisions or highly invasive approaches. 

How does Kybella dissolve fat?

Kybella is made of synthetic deoxycholic acid, so it’s a copy of a substance that occurs naturally in the body. This acid essentially liquifies fats that you eat, which helps you absorb them in your intestines and, eventually, eliminate them from your body. 

 

Because deoxycholic acid is so effective at diminishing fat, it’s a highly efficient way to target the fat in certain fat cells: those under the chin and in the jaw area, collectively called the submental area. 

 

Through a series of injections in the double chin area, Kybella destroys the fat cell membranes, causing them to break open. The liquified fat can then move on through your digestive system for elimination. 

Is Kybella right for me?

Fat-dissolving injections could be right for you if: 

 

  • You’re self-conscious about or unhappy with submental fat
  • You don’t want to have invasive fat-removal procedures like liposuction
  • You’ve tried weight loss and exercise, but your double chin won’t budge

 

Everyone has their own reasons for choosing Kybella, and your goals for your appearance are always respected and supported at Rejive Medical Aesthetics. 

How many Kybella treatment sessions do you need?

Everybody has a unique chin profile and different treatment goals, so the number of treatments you need depends on those things. Most people get the best outcome with a series of two to six treatments. 

 

Rejive Medical Aesthetics schedules your treatments at least one month apart. This allows for a careful evaluation of your results after every session so you get exactly the treatment you need. 

How long does Kybella last?

Kybella results last forever. When it destroys your fat cells, they’re gone for good and can’t grow back. However, Kybella only treats certain pockets of fat (those you had at the time of treatment). 

 

Eating healthy and exercising regularly is important because other fat cells could expand nearby if you’re not proactive about maintaining your weight. 

 

Fat-dissolving injections can streamline your jawline and banish your double chin for good. If you’re ready to learn more about Kybella, click the online appointment feature or call Rejive Medical Aesthetics today.
