How Long Does Kybella Last?

Are you interested in getting rid of a double chin with Kybella, but want to know how long those results may last?

Let’s take a closer look at Kybella treatments, including how long you can expect your results to last.

What is Kybella for Double Chin Reduction?

Kybella is an FDA-approved injection that helps reduce the appearance of a double chin

This new but popular treatment gets its effectiveness from its active ingredient, deoxycholic acid. This acid works by “eating” away at submental fat cells, which are clustered underneath the chin (these cells are notoriously hard to target with diet and exercise). Deoxycholic acid leaves surrounding cells untouched, meaning only fat cells are targeted and destroyed.

Over time, the body’s waste removal processes remove the remnants of your fat cells, leaving behind significant inch loss. The end result is a more contoured jawline, as well as noticeable double chin reduction!

Kybella Results: The Duration is Up to You!

Get this: Once Kybella eliminates the targeted fat cells, they’re permanently gone. 

However, Kybella can’t prevent the formation of new fat cells, meaning your Kybella results are 100% dependent on you. If you want to maintain your Kybella results, we recommend taking the following steps:

  • Hydrate after your Kybella treatment
  • Get in plenty of exercise
  • Follow a healthy diet

You may also want to consider adding a skin-tightening treatment if you see sagging skin after your Kybella injection. That’s because Kybella only focuses on getting rid of fat cells; it can’t tighten skin.
