Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable treatment addressing moderate to severe submental fat. Extensive skin may be left in place when fat is removed under the chin or any other area. However, Kybella creates inflammation that helps tighten the skin and mitigates the sagging effects.
Kybella is injected directly beneath the chin and causes the tissues around the fat cells to dissolve. After the treatment, these fat cells cannot store fat, which makes Kybella treatment permanent. After two to four treatments, you will see visible changes in your chin’s profile.
Anyone can develop fat under the chin, regardless of weight, diet, or exercise regimen. Until recently, invasive liposuction was the best option for improving the under the chin appearance. Now, injections of Kybella reduce the need for liposuction and other invasive fat removal techniques. Instead, several injections give you a sleek and contoured chin area.
The fat cannot come back after Kybella on the treated area. However, it may appear in other areas of your body. For example, if you used Kybella to remove your chin fat, it wouldn’t return to your chin area.
