Kybella® Results

Excess fat under the chin, also known as submental fullness, can hide the jaw and neckline and make you look older or heavier than you are. There are several techniques that can be used to target this stubborn fat, one of them being Kybella in Denver, a simple and effective injectable treatment.

How does Kybella work?

To understand what makes Kybella so effective, we can look into what it’s made out of. The active ingredient in Kybella is synthetic deoxycholic acid, a molecule that is naturally found in the body to help break down fat. So, when injected under the chin, Kybella acts as this natural molecule, destroying the fat cells.

What happens to the fat cells?

Once fat cells are destroyed by the Kybella formula, they are naturally eliminated from the body’s waste. After this process, the fat cells cannot return to the area, leading to results that are long-lasting. After optimal treatment sessions, you can enjoy less submental fullness, leading to improved chin projection and a more defined jawline. Or in other words, Kybella is your effective double chin treatment!

How much Kybella do I need?

Kybella is not usually a one-time treatment. You will likely require several treatment sessions to see significant results. For most individuals, a total of six treatment session spaced one month apart can give them the results they’re looking for. However, the exact number of sessions you will need will depend on the extent of your submental fullness. The good news is, treatment sessions only require about 15-20 minutes to complete and require no downtime, making them easy to fit into your schedule.
