Wouldn’t it be wonderful if a double chin was a sign of beauty or a coveted characteristic that only the luckiest few people are born with? Maybe in an alternate universe, this doctrine holds true, but double chins are abundant here, and most people dream of a way to get rid of that extra pouch of fat beneath the jawline.
Thankfully, there’s Kybella®, a prescription injectable that can banish your pesky double chin without surgery. At Ego medical spa in Modesto, California, our medical professionals,
recommend FDA-approved Kybella injections to diminish the fat from your double chin. Treatments are quick and easy, and your double chin is gone for good. Learn why Kybella is the best solution for getting rid of a double chin.
Age, weight, and genetics cause double chins
You can blame that submental fat under your chin on your family for having a genetic disposition, on the extra slices of pie you’ve consumed over the years, on the fact that you’re getting older, or on all three. But simply understanding why you have a double chin isn’t enough to make it disappear. Whatever the reason — and quite possibly a combination of factors — if you’re bothered by a double chin, Kybella can help.
Even if you’re not overweight, exercise and diet alone don’t always reduce the fat under your chin. Can you imagine doing target-toning exercises to tighten the skin and fat under your neck? Results can take forever and are highly unpredictable.
How Kybella delivers results
Kybella injections are a much more reliable solution to diminishing your double chin because Kybella contains a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid. Your body naturally makes this molecule and uses it to help with the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Injecting Kybella into the fat beneath your chin prompts the deoxycholic acid to break down those fat cells so they can no longer store fat. That means you enjoy a slimmer profile with noticeably less of a double chin.
And here’s the best part: Once Kybella destroys those annoying fat cells, results are permanent. This means that after a few treatments with Kybella — typically up to six sessions spaced about a month apart — your double chin is gone forever. The Ego team customizes a Kybella treatment plan to meet your individual needs, so you may see results even sooner.
In-office Kybella injections take just 15-20 minutes, during which time your provider carefully injects Kybella into the fat under your chin. The needle is thin, and most adults tolerate the injections without issue. Of course, your comfort is one of our top priorities, so if you’re concerned about pain, we offer a topical numbing cream before beginning your injections.
Better than surgery because there’s no lengthy recovery
Kybella is a surgery-free, minimally invasive way to a slimmer profile and more defined jawline. You may experience some minor bruising and swelling immediately following your Kybella appointment, but because there are no incisions, you don’t have to worry about going home to recover or taking time off from work as your body heals. Why undergo painful, risky surgery when you can get rid of your double chin with a few simple prescription injections?
Are you a Kybella candidate?
If you’re bothered by the appearance of your double chin, want to avoid surgery, and you’re 18 or older, you may be an ideal candidate for Kybella. Before beginning treatment, you discuss any health concerns, pre-existing medical conditions, medications you’re taking, and any cosmetic treatments you’ve had so our team can determine if you're an appropriate candidate to undergo treatment for submental fat.
