Double Chin Reduction: What You Need to Know


A double chin is a common problem. The submental (under the chin) area often accumulates hard-to-remove fat. Even weight loss often leaves your double chin looking just as noticeable. Kybella® is an injectable treatment that removes submental fat to sculpt your neck. This procedure provides lasting results that make you feel more confident. 

What is Double Chin Reduction With Kybella®?

A double chin can affect the appearance of your neck and the contours of your chin and jaw. This accumulated fat can be reduced with Kybella®. This FDA-approved injectable treatment breaks up stubborn fat cells without affecting other tissues. Your body removes the treated fat over time, providing non-surgical double chin treatment.

Double Chin Reduction: What You Need to Know

Double thin treatment with Kybella® uses a series of injections to break up resistant submental fat. Kybella® is not right for everyone, but it helps many people safely get rid of a double chin

How Does Kybella® Work?

Kybella® uses a compound called deoxycholic acid. In your digestive system, deoxycholic acid helps break down fat. When injected, it exclusively targets fat cells without harming your other tissues. Your lymphatic system filters away the damaged cells over a few months. 

How Many Kybella® Treatments Will I Need for My Double Chin?

Most people need at least two to three treatments to see their best results. Some people will need up to six Kybella® treatments to achieve the fat removal they desire. Each person’s body responds differently to double chin reduction. 

How Long Does it Take to See Results from Double Chin Reduction?

You will see Kybella® results as your body filters away damaged fat cells. You may notice changes within a few weeks, but full results will take a few months. Fat removal continues for several months after your last treatment.

How Long Do Kybella® Results Last?

Adults do not grow new fat cells, so your Kybella® results are long-lasting. The treated fat cells will not return. However, you still have fat cells in the area, and they can store more fat if your weight changes. We recommend a healthy lifestyle to maintain your results for the long term. 

What is Recovery Like After Double Chin Reduction?

After treatment, you may experience redness, sensitivity, and swelling in the injection area. The redness will fade in a few days. Swelling can last up to a few weeks but will become less noticeable after the first few days. You can return to your usual activities after treatment. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Double Chin Reduction with Kybella®?

Most healthy adults are good candidates for double chin treatment. Candidates should have reasonable expectations and goals. You may not be a good candidate if you have certain medical conditions, especially in the neck area. You should also not have Kybella® if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. 

I am currently undergoing a series of laser treatments with Kinsey and I couldn’t be more pleased. She is professional and always sets me at ease. I highly recommend Rejuve.
