Everyone knows what a double chin is, and a double chin can make you feel extremely self-conscious and may age you or make you feel heavier than you may be.

Continue reading to find out if Kybella is the best solution for you!
What is Kybella?
Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable that is used to benefit adults over the age of eighteen that may struggle with excess fat under their chin. Kybella contains a molecule that is naturally found in the body to help break down dietary fat. When injected into the chin, it helps to destroy fat cells and prevents them from storing more fat.
Each person is different, so the number of sessions you may need will vary. Your dermatologists in Morristown, Mt. Arlington, and Bridgewater, NJ, will sit down and discuss what will best suit your needs and how many sessions your body will need for your desired results.
Results may be seen anywhere from four to six weeks after your first session and will continue to progress with time and throughout your next sessions. Kybella is administered with a small needle under the chin. Afterward, you may feel slightly sore at the location of the injection, but that should disappear quickly. A huge benefit to Kybella is that is no downtime associated with it. After your injection, you can go back to normal life and the most that you may need is over-the-counter ibuprofen.
