Reimagine a jawline without the double chin. A sculpted jawline does a lot for our self-esteem and confidence. People with a strong profile are seen as trustworthy and competent. When a double chin interferes with that, there’s Kybella®. It’s the only FDA-approved injectable treatment for reducing the double chin.
Deoxycholic acid is the active ingredient in Kybella®, a substance the body uses to metabolize fat. When injected into the submental area—the double chin—Kybella® breaks down fat cells. They are then absorbed by the body and filtered out naturally through the lymphatic system. The result is a slimmer, more contoured jawline and chin.
Most adult men and women bothered by a double chin are good candidates for Kybella® treatments. The most satisfied patients are happy to avoid liposuction even if results are less immediate. Your soul&beautyMEDx consultation will include a complete examination and thorough medical history to determine if Kybella® will benefit you.
The pinch of an injection is a mild discomfort, and numbing medications are available. The injections themselves are quick. Your Kybella® session takes around 30 minutes to complete. Most patients can achieve their aesthetic goals with a series of injections scheduled 1 month apart.
Swelling, injection site bruising, tenderness, numbness, or areas of hardness are normal. Patients report it taking a few days for these to diminish. Some swelling may persist for longer, but your general routine remains intact.
The body’s cellular filtration following Kybella® does take some time. Results become visible around 3 months or after 2 treatment sessions. These improvements accumulate, peaking around 6 months. Your jawline is sculpted, your profile pronounced and pleasing, and your neck is slimmer and more defined.
