You don’t have to be overweight or inactive to have a double chin. Since a double chin is very difficult to reduce with diet and exercise, you can have this issue even if you live an active, healthy lifestyle. Fortunately, you don’t have to go through the rest of your life with a double chin. At Still Waters Day & Medical Spa in Pensacola, Florida, we can address this issue in a minimally invasive manner with Kybella.
How Can I Lose My Double Chin? Learn About Kybella
A double chin, also known as submental fullness, is a very difficult issue. In fact, in a survey, more than 70% of people said that their excess fat in this area bothered them. Kybella is an injectable product that can improve your profile by reducing unwanted fat under your chin. This is an FDA-approved product that uses an innovative method to accomplish this goal.
This injectable solution contains a synthetic type of deoxycholic acid. Your body uses this enzyme to process dietary fat. After we inject this product into the fat under your chin, the deoxycholic acid in the solution will destroy some of the fat cells in this area of your body.
Over the next couple of weeks, your body will metabolize these dead cells and remove them from your target area. Once you achieve the full benefits of this treatment, your double chin will be less visible and your profile will be slimmer and more attractive.
What Are the Benefits of This Treatment?
Before this injectable treatment was invented, people often used invasive methods like liposuction to remove unwanted fat under their chins. Although these methods were very effective, they could be expensive and uncomfortable. Further, these procedures often had lengthy recovery periods, and people usually had to take many days off from their jobs and childcare responsibilities.
If you’re a busy person with a full life, you probably don’t want to spend days or weeks at home recovering from a cosmetic procedure. Fortunately, this injectable treatment won’t require you to take a long break from your typical activities. Since this is a minimally invasive treatment, you will be able to return to your job and other duties immediately.
An Effective Method
This cosmetic treatment really works. During a scientific study, more than 80% of people said that they were more satisfied with their appearance after they used this injectable product. In addition, about 80% of these people had noticeable improvements in their double chins twenty-four weeks after they completed their treatment plans.
Even though your chin is relatively small, it has a big impact on how you look. Although you can cover your stomach or thighs with flattering clothing, it’s very difficult to disguise a double chin in this manner. As a result, minimizing your double chin will dramatically improve your appearance.
Some aesthetic treatments create instant changes in your appearance. These improvements can be very dramatic. As a result, your friends and family members might guess that you used a cosmetic technique to enhance your body.
Fortunately, you don’t need to worry about this issue when you use this injectable treatment to reduce your double chin. Since your body will need time to process and remove your dead fat cells, this treatment does not provide instant results. Instead, this injectable product will improve your double chin in a gradual, natural-looking manner.
Why Am I Struggling to Fix My Double Chin on My Own?
Fixing your double chin on your own can be an extremely challenging and frustrating process. If you are trying to tone and firm your stomach or thighs, you can sometimes perform specialized exercises that target these locations on your body. In contrast, it’s difficult to find exercises that will tone your neck or chin. As a result, even the most rigorous exercise program might not reduce your double chin.
Further, your genes can cause you to store fat under your chin. Since this type of fat is very resistant to lifestyle changes, you will struggle to remove your double chin on your own.
Fortunately, this injectable product can directly target the unwanted fat under your chin. Accordingly, this product is a great way to remove the fat deposits that you haven’t been able to improve with diet and exercise changes.
What Will My Appointment Be Like?
Since this treatment is one of the easiest ways to reduce your double chin, you shouldn’t feel nervous or worried as you begin your initial appointment.
We will start the treatment process by making temporary marks on your neck. These marks will help us administer your injections in a quick, effective manner. After we have finished marking your neck, we will inject the product into your target area. Although this process will be tailored to fit the condition of your double chin, it’s common to receive twenty to thirty injections during your treatment session.
It doesn’t take very long to administer your injections, and you will feel relaxed during this portion of your treatment. Once we have completed your injections, you will be able to return to your home or office. Since you won’t receive general anesthesia or incisions during your treatment, you should be able to resume your usual activities right away.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The number of treatments that you need will depend on the amount of fat under your chin, your body’s response to your injections, and your desired outcome.
An Individualized Treatment Plan
If you have a small amount of fat under your chin, you might be happy with your results after you receive one treatment session. Alternatively, if you have a larger amount of fat, you will probably need to receive a series of treatments to achieve your intended outcome. To give your body time to process your dead fat cells, you’ll need to wait at least one month between each session.
You shouldn’t feel disappointed if you are unable to reach your goal after one session. It’s very common to need multiple treatments to achieve your desired look. In fact, during clinical studies, the vast majority of people needed multiple treatment sessions to achieve noticeable changes in their appearance.
Talk to Us
The best way to determine the length of your treatment plan is to have an initial consultation with us. Since part of your plan will depend on your body’s response to your initial injections, your treatment plan may change over time. That said, we can give you a rough idea of the number of sessions that you will need.
How Quickly Will My Double Chin Improve?
This product does not provide instant results. Although your individual results will vary, it is common to see a reduction in the fat under your chin within several weeks of your initial treatment. As you complete your treatment plan, your double chin will continue to improve. Taking regular photographs of your chin will help you track your progress during this time.
How Long Will My Results Last?
This treatment is an ideal way to change your appearance in a lasting manner. Many injectables do not create permanent changes in your body. Instead, the results of these treatments often wear off after a couple of months. To maintain the benefits of these injectables, you will have to incorporate regular touch-up treatments into your schedule.
Unlike other injectable products, Kybella has the ability to permanently reduce your double chin. This product destroys fat cells under your chin, preventing them from storing fat in the future. Once your body has processed these dead cells, they will be permanently removed from your target area. As a result, you will not need additional injections once you have completed your treatment plan.
Although you don’t need follow-up injections to maintain your new look, this injectable product will not prevent you from gaining unwanted fat in the future. As a result, you should follow a healthy lifestyle after your injections are complete. In particular, you should eat a balanced diet and exercise regularly. Adopting these habits will improve your health and maintain your new profile.
Is This Treatment Safe?
In 2015, the FDA approved this injectable treatment for the purposes of reducing moderate-to-severe fat under the chin. Since then, many people have successfully used this product to reduce their double chins.
Further, scientific studies have indicated that this treatment is safe and effective. For instance, numerous scientific studies have shown that the deoxycholic acid used in this product is a safe ingredient. In addition, a scientific study concluded that this injectable treatment can reduce fat under the chin in a safe, comfortable manner.

Am I Eligible to Receive This Treatment?
You are likely to be eligible for this treatment if you are an adult who wants to address moderate to severe fat under your chin. Although this treatment is quick and minimally invasive, you’ll need to have an initial consultation before you receive your injections. During this meeting, we will examine your double chin and review your medical history.
At this point, you should tell us if you have any health issues, including any blood disorders or any conditions that affect your neck or chin. You should also inform us about any medications, supplements, or vitamins that you are taking, as these substances could affect your treatment plan.
We cannot treat you while you have a sunburn in your target area, an infection, or a fever. You also cannot have active cold sores, fever blisters, or shingles. You can resume your treatment once these conditions have healed.
