Double Chin

How Long Does Kybella Last?

Are you struggling to get rid of your double chin, but you’re not interested in surgery? Kybella may be the non-surgical fix you’re looking for. Kybella (deoxycholic acid) is a non-surgical treatment for submental fullness that requires no anesthesia, leaves no scars, and is virtually painless. But how long does Kybella last.

Whether the fat below your chin is due to genetics or weight gain, Kybella can get rid of your double chin, and improve your chin’s profile.

How Kybella works
Kybella is a simple injectable treatment that is derived from deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a natural substance found within the body that assists with the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.

Small amounts of Kybella are administered through a series of injections. When Kybella is injected into the double chin it breaks apart the membrane of the fat cells, causing the cells to rupture. The fat deposits are then naturally removed by the body.

How long does Kybella Last?
Results from Kybella injections can be seen within 4-6 weeks of treatment, and can last for many years. The good thing about Kybella is that the fat cells that are treated won’t come back, because the body does not regenerate fat cells. As a result, even if patients gain weight in the future the weight gain will not be in the area where the fat cells were treated, so there should not be any significant weight gain below the chin.

How do I know which chin fat reduction technique procedure is right for me?

Getting rid of a double chin through diet and exercise is extremely difficult. Many patients find the chin to be a “trouble area” that responds poorly to weight loss. A double chin can make people appear older than they actually are and approximately 65% of Americans report being bothered by the fullness under their chin. Kybella, Ultherapy, and Chin Lipo are three ways to reduce fat in the chin.

Kybella is an injection that contains deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance that removes fat cells without harming surrounding healthy tissue and leaving behind a more contoured and sleek jawline. Ultherapy is an FDA-approved ultrasound treatment that lifts and tightens skin along the chin and jawline but it is not designed to remove fat.Chin Liposuction is a surgical procedure that uses liposuction in the chin and neck to remove stubborn fat. Which procedure is right for you depends on a few factors:

Kybella is a series of injections that requires no downtime. However, patients may need a series of up to six injections, which cause redness, swelling, and bruising each time. Similarly, Ultherapy has minimal side effects but may require several treatments. Chin liposuction requires a few weeks of recovery but is a one-time treatment.

Type of Chin Fat
The best treatment for you depends on the type of skin or fat under your chin. If you have a small to medium double chin due to fat, Kybella destroys fat and is a great non-surgical alternative to liposuction but does not tighten the skin. If you are experiencing loose skin under the chin, Ultherapy works better for those with loose skin to tighten the skin and improve the chin line but is not recommended for those with fat under the chin. Chin liposuction improves a more severe double chin that is the result of an isolated pocket of fat with mild to minimal skin excess.

The best treatment for you depends on the amount of fat and loose skin on the neck, the number of recommended treatments, your expected results, cost, downtime, and side effects.
