Kybella: Now You Can Banish That Double Chin Without Surgery

The pouch of extra fat and skin you have under your chin is known in the medical world as submental fat. Whether yours is because of weight gain, genetics, or the aging process, we can help you blast the fat once and for all with a series of nonsurgical Kybella® treatments.

Kybella is an injectable that literally dissolves the fat in your double chin. This life-changing treatment is available right here at New Image Med Spa in Fremont, California. If you’re ready to get rid of that double chin, read on to find out if Kybella might be right for you. 

What causes a double chin?

In many cases, submental fullness is simply a result of genetics. It may be that no matter how much weight you lose, you still have that small amount of fat under your chin.

Another possibility is that the degeneration process is underway. It's pure biology: As you age, your skin loses elasticity — everywhere, including your chin. This loss of tone creates a saggy appearance under the chin. 

Exercising — still key to your overall health and wellness — doesn’t seem to deliver long-lasting results in the targeted area below your jaw. So what can you do?

Banish your double chin forever

The active ingredient in Kybella is a synthetic deoxycholic acid. In your body, deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule that aids in the breakdown and digestion of dietary fat. Kybella was created to target and permanently dissolve the fat cells that make up your double chin.

Surinder Sandhu, MD, personally attends to each and every patient at New Image Medical Spa. She injects Kybella into the fat beneath your chin, and it gradually destroys unwanted fat cells, very similarly to how your digestive system breaks down the fat in the food you eat.

Once the fat cells under your chin are destroyed, your body does not produce new ones. That means your double chin is gone for as long as you maintain a healthy body weight.

What to expect with Kybella treatment

Your Kybella appointment takes less than 30 minutes. Each customized Kybella treatment consists of multiple injections strategically placed under your chin, depending on the amount of fat you have and your desired profile. 

It takes a little time for your body to get rid of the destroyed fat cells, so your results become apparent slowly over a few weeks. The number of Kybella treatments required to attain your aesthetic goal differs for each client. Most notice significant improvement with 2-6 treatments.

Unlike liposuction or other surgical intervention, Kybella doesn’t require downtime and generally has no side effects. Immediately following your Kybella injections, you may experience mild swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin.

Is Kybella right for me? 

A study conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery discovered that 67% of those surveyed feel embarrassed, self-conscious, or bothered by submental fullness. If you’re ready to banish your double chin, call for an appointment or book online.
