Is KYBELLA® a Permanent Solution to My Double Chin?


Double chins can occur at any age due to genetics, excess weight, or age. Unfortunately, submental fat can alter the shape of the face and make you appear heavier and older than you are. KYBELLA® is a trusted solution to this double chin problem. Considering that this is a non-surgical injectable treatment (and most injectables are by nature temporary), many potential KYBELLA® patients are curious whether this treatment will lead to long-lasting or permanent results. However, KYBELLA® is unique in the way it works and can be a permanent reduction solution for submental fat.

What Causes a Double Chin? 

Wondering why some people have double chins and others don’t? A double chin,  also called submental fullness, is sometimes caused by extra fat in the face and neck region. For others, a double chin will develop over time due to skin sagging as you age. And in other cases, some people simply have a double chin because of their genetics. 

While a double chin may not cause any medical problems, the appearance of one on a person’s body can cause several insecurities. People with double chins may find themselves trying to use scarves and turtle necks to cover up.  They also face the difficulties of hiding this region during warmer weather months. They can also be uncomfortable showing their side profiles in pictures. 

What Is KYBELLA®? 

KYBELLA® is a non-surgical injectable treatment used to get rid of a double chin. It is unique in that it is the first and only injection treatment that can remove a double chin safely and effectively. No recovery time is needed, and the treatments are customized to fit the patient’s goals. 

How Does KYBELLA® Work? 

To target a double chin, KYBELLA® treatment uses injections with deoxycholic acid that break down and get rid of the fatty cells. One of the great things about this treatment method is that the deoxycholic acid will continue to break down any new fat cells, even as the old ones disappear. The goal of the injections is to decrease the appearance of the double chin until it is completely gone, leaving you with a defined neck and jawline. 

Is KYBELLA® Permanent? 

If you’re dissatisfied with the appearance of your double chin, you’re likely looking for a solution that would get rid of it for good, right? Well, in that case, KYBELLA® is the solution you’ve been looking for. Since the deoxycholic acid in the injections destroys fat cells as they form, the treatment permanently gets rid of a double chin by removing all submental fullness. 

While KYBELLA® can permanently remove your double chin, it’s essential to keep in mind that you’ll likely need multiple treatments before you can achieve your desired results. For some people, it takes as many as six treatments for their double chin to be removed entirely. However, once it is, the submental fullness will be permanently removed.
