Whether you’ve had your double chin all your life or it’s something that you’ve developed over the years, no one prefers to have it. A double chin can be caused by age, gaining weight, or simple genetics—and with Kybella, it can be contoured away, leaving you with a much-improved profile and jawline. Results from Kybella are significant, with many clients reporting that it seems to take 20 pounds off. Keep reading to see why our Kybella treatments in Glendale and Sherman Oaks are so sought after.
Wondering how Kybella results in double chin removal without surgery? The short answer is: Kybella kills fat cells. The longer answer is that Kybella is made of a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally-occuring molecule humans have that helps with fat digestion. Deoxycholic acid breaks down fat by destroying the cell membrane—and that’s exactly what Kybella does when it’s injected into the double chin area. Once the double chin injection is given and the fat is broken down by Kybella, it then gets cleared away into the lymphatic and circulatory systems. This process can take several weeks, so clients who use Kybella should understand that their results occur gradually.
You will probably start to see results anywhere from three to five days to kick in, with the full effect becoming apparent within two weeks.
When you visit Pure Touch for a double chin treatment, you will be given Kybella injections in the chin area about 20-30 times per session. This takes roughly five minutes. First, marks will be drawn on your neck and underneath your chin to help your nurse with the injections. Most patients report a very tolerable and temporary stinging sensation as Kybella is administered, and ice packs are given to patients to use as needed during the procedure. Some soreness and swelling is to be expected, with minimal discomfort. It generally takes anywhere from 4-6 Kybella sessions to see great double chin reduction results.
Kybella is extremely effective when it’s used for the right person. Because Kybella only treats fat that is in a certain area of the neck, it’s important for those considering this procedure to have an in-person consultation in order for us to determine if Kybella is right for you. It will also be a good opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have.
