Will Kybella Get Rid of My Double Chin Permanently?

You’ve been doing all the right things. You eat a healthy diet. You get plenty of exercise. You even drink eight glasses of water each day.

So why do you still have a double chin?

The truth is that a double chin is more often indicative of your genetics, as opposed to your diet. Some people are prone to carrying fat around the jawline, which means it can be tough to spot-treat that fat through diet and exercise alone.

That’s where Kybella comes in. This FDA-approved injection helps reduce the appearance of a double chin, leaving clients with a noticeably slimmer jawline and facial profile.

But will Kybella get rid of your double chin permanently? And how exactly does Kybella work?

Kybella Results: They Can Be Permanent

Kybella results are permanent in that once the treated fat cells are flushed out of the patient’s system, that’s it – they’re 100% gone.

However, Kybella doesn’t prevent the formation of new fat cells, which is why it’s so important for clients to follow a healthy lifestyle regimen to prevent their double chin from coming back.

How Kybella Works

Kybella uses a special deoxycholic acid formula to effectively “burn” away fat cells within the submental tissue, all while leaving surrounding healthy cells untouched. Once these fat cells are damaged, they’re flushed away by the body’s metabolic processes. Over the course of eight to twelve weeks, patients will see a noticeable reduction in chin fat

How to Maintain Your Kybella Results

As we’ve pointed out before, one of the best ways to maintain your Kybella results is to follow a healthy diet and exercise regimen. There are a few other tips that can help you keep your brand-new jawline profile, including:

  • Drink plenty of water, especially in the first few days after your Kybella treatment.
  • Invest in a good skincare routine so you can prevent skin sagging from hiding your beautiful results.
  • If you do start to encounter skin sagging around your jawline, consider treatments that can tighten and tone your skin to preserve your Kybella results.

Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Nissan Pilest will provide you with more tips to help you keep your Kybella results for as long as possible.
