Having a double chin may seem unavoidable thanks to your genetics and your gradual skin loosening over time. Kybella® injections by Cheryl Royce, NP, at Fresh Face in Bethesda, Maryland, can help reduce your chin fat and define your jawline. With Kybella, you don’t have to try relentlessly to lose weight or attempt facial exercises that can’t target specific areas of fat no matter how hard you try. Book your consultation for Kybella by calling Fresh Face, or by using the online scheduling tool today.
Kybella is a one-of-a-kind cosmetic injectable that targets and reduces the fat beneath your chin. Double chins may be common, but it’s hard not to focus on your own. Developing a double chin changes the way you see your face and can make you look overweight, even if you’re in a healthy range.
Double chins aren’t always directly related to being overweight. You might see your double chin develop because of your genetics, gravity, and other factors outside of your control. Additionally, if you lose weight on your body, your double chin size might stay the same. Kybella allows you to slim your chin to refine your facial profile.
The process that allows Kybella to make a difference in the shape of your lower face is called injection lipolysis. Lipolysis is the process of killing fat cells, and Kybella does so by way of an injection of deoxycholic acid.
Deoxycholic acid is one type of acid that you can find in your stomach bile. It specializes in helping you absorb and digest fat from your food. When injected beneath your chin, the acid destroys the fat cells in the area to reduce its size. Most patients need at least two appointments and up to six. Before you start treatment, Cheryl assesses your needs and decides how many injections you’ll need to see your ideal results.
Cheryl helps you book your appointments up to one month apart to allow some time for healing between each injection. As you recover from your treatment, you may see your chin expand, seemingly going in the wrong direction of your intentions. This is a result of the swelling, but you’ll see your actual results take shape after about six to eight weeks.
The reduction in the size of your double chin is permanent because the fat cells are no longer able to store and accumulate fat. As long as you’re committed and able to keep your weight stable, you won’t see your double chin grow back.
