How Kybella® Combats the Dreaded Double Chin

Unfortunately, diet and exercise alone are often not enough to get rid of excess skin or fat located under the chin. And, no one likes to look in their front-facing camera phone to be surprised by a double chin. While excess skin and fat around the neck are often attributed to being overweight, it can happen as a result of aging and family history as well. For those who are at a healthy weight, there is an effective and quick way to reduce the appearance of the double chin known as Kybella® dermal fillers.

 What are Kybella® Dermal Fillers?

Kybella® is an injectable treatment which contains an ingredient called deoxycholic acid. This ingredient is actually a naturally forming chemical within the human body which is utilized in digestion to break down fat cells. And, it works as an injection in the same way. When Kybella® is injected into the affected area, fat cells around the neck are targeted and eliminated. This leaves a slimmer, younger-looking neck.

Why Consider Kybella® as a Method to Double Chin Removal

Sure, you could consider a neck lift as a means to eliminate the excess fat and skin around your neck. But, Kybella® is a non-invasive treatment which includes injections rather than intrusive surgery. This means minimal to practically no recovery time. And, minimal to no pain. Plus, most importantly, Kybella® treatments offer little to no risk besides the occasional side effect like swelling.
