Get Rid of Double Chin

Injectable Double Chin Reduction San Diego

Kybella (deoxycholic acid) is the latest prescription injection treatment that allows you to fight the effects of submental fullness, or a “double chin.” This cosmetic filler is used to tighten and firm skin below the jaw and reduce the appearance of the dreaded “double chin.” It is injected directly into the fatty areas under the chin to moderate and reduce fat cells for a younger appearance.

How Kybella Works?

Think of your fat cells as little tiny balloons filled with fat. They gather together and crowd up beneath your chin, giving you that extra little pouch of submental fat that we call the double chin. Enter Kybella, a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule that helps metabolize dietary fat. When Dr. Parvin Mani injects the formula into the treatment area carefully and strategically, Kybella disrupts the membranes of the fatty cells, causing them to release their contents. As your body metabolizes the released fat…bye bye double chin! A full course of Kybella treatment includes six sessions spaced one month apart, but some patients see results after just two sessions and don’t need to complete the full six! Want more great news? Once broken, those cells are unable to accumulate and store fat. So, if you can maintain a proper diet and a healthy weight, you can say good-bye to your double chin for good!

Kybella vs Coolsculpting for double chin

Kybella breaks down fat cells under the chin and then absorbs the cells, while also working to prevent fat from accumulating in the area in the future. The absorbed fat is then removed from the body by the natural metabolic process, literally melting the fat away.
Coolsculpting has long been a trusted body contouring treatment, but only recently has the FDA approved Coolsculpting for use on smaller areas of the body, including under the chin. Coolsculpting is a minimally invasive and non-surgical treatment that works to remove unwanted fat, using cryotherapy to freeze fat cells and eliminate them. Once frozen, the fat cells will be eliminated through the metabolic process.
Kybella and Coolsculpting have quite a bit in common in how they go about treating you. Here are a few of the similarities between the two double chin treatments.
  • They get rid of excess fat stored below the chin, giving you a sleeker and more attractive appearance
  • They are non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that requires no downtime or recovery
  • The side effects are minor, and usually include only a bit of bruising, swelling, or redness
  • For best results, a couple of treatments are needed
  • While the end result of Kybella and Coolsculpting is the same, there are crucial differences between the two treatments. Here are a few of the most notable differences between Kybella and Coolsculpting double chin treatment.
  • Kybella is an injectable treatment, so if you don’t like needles, it might not be for you
  • Since Kybella is an injectable, it can treat smaller and more isolated areas
  • Coolsculpting uses an applicator, with no needles involved
  • Coolsculpting is great for older patients with loose skin
  • Coolsculpting treats an entire area, not small targeted areas
  • Our team of experts can determine whether Kybella or Coolsculpting is the best treatment method to get rid of your double chin, taking into account a variety of different factors.

    How Effective is Kybella?

    Kybella is the result of more than 20 clinical trials on some 2,600 patients. It is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment for this purpose. Kybella can be administered over a course of six treatments, at least one month apart with a 79% success rate among those who complete all six treatments. More than a quarter of participants in clinical trials were able to see results after just the first two treatments and, in some cases, less than six treatments were needed to reach the desired results.

    What Makes Kybella Work?

    The primary active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid. This acid is present in your body as a means of breaking down fat cells already. By replicating this molecule and targeting it directly at the fat cells beneath the chin it can be used to efficiently fight the signs of aging and reduce submental fullness. In most cases, once the course of treatment has been completed, there is no need for recurring treatment at a later date. The cells themselves are broken down and reabsorbed so that they cannot continue to accumulate and store fat.

    Are there any Side Effects from a Kybella Treatment?

    There are some known side effects to Kybella. In most cases, side effects include soreness and swelling at the injection site, or small hard spots that fade over time. In more severe cases, Kybella can cause nerve damage that results in facial weakness and can affect your ability to smile.

    Is Kybella Right for You?

    Kybella is among the safest and most recommended treatments of its kind. If you think you may be a good candidate for this procedure, consider the following questions:
