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.
