Why Do I Have a Double Chin?

Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to be overweight to have a double chin, although weight gain is one factor that causes this common aesthetic concern. Other reasons may include unavoidable signs of aging and genetics. It is also frustrating when your double chin is resistant to traditional diet and exercise. According to the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS), 67% of people surveyed say they are bothered by the extra fat beneath their skin.

Fortunately, Kybella is an ideal solution! If you’re ready to improve the appearance of your jaw and neckline, contact our dermatologists at CDAM and schedule your initial consultation.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an injection formula of synthetic deoxycholic acid, which naturally forms in your body to help break down and absorb dietary fats. When injected into fat under the chin, Kybella destroys fat cells permanently, so these cells cannot store fat in the future.

What to Expect with Kybella

Before we begin your Kybella session in Chicago, IL, your skin is fully cleansed, and a local anesthetic is provided to make sure you’re comfortable during your injection treatment. We also mark precise injection locations for Kybella underneath the chin that will lead to your desired results.

During the procedure, quick injections are made below the chin, which may feel similar to a slight pinch. If you ever feel any discomfort, please inform us immediately so we can improve your experience. Kybella sessions typically last around a half an hour, and most patients require two to four sessions scheduled at least one month apart. Some patients may need up to six sessions to achieve their desired results. There is minimal downtime associated with Kybella. Some patients may experience mild swelling and bruising, which can last for a few days.
