If you're bothered by your double chin, you're not alone. Many people struggle to find ways to minimize this area, whether it's through makeup or surgery. …but what if we told you there was a way to get rid of your double chin without either of those options? Enter Kybella. Kybella is an injectable treatment that helps break down fat cells in the area under your chin, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness without liposuction. Here at Destin Botox Laser and Facial Aesthetics, we offer Kybella treatments that can give you the results you desire. So if you’re ready to say goodbye to your double chin for good, keep reading and book a consultation. How Kybella Works to Reduce Double Chin Fat Kybella works to reduce double chin fat by targeting fat cells with its active ingredient, deoxycholic acid. This is a naturally-occurring molecule that helps break down and absorb dietary fat. When injected into the area under the chin, Kybella targets and destroys the fat cells in that area. After a series of treatments (usually 4-6 applications over as many months), the body will naturally eliminate the destroyed fat cells, resulting in a slimmer and more toned, contoured appearance. With Kybella you can achieve results that previously required liposuction with minimal downtime or discomfort. Is Kybella Good for Everyone? Kybella is not suitable for everyone. It is important to understand that Kybella is only meant to reduce the appearance of a double chin, and it will not treat underlying skin laxity or wrinkles. People with excessive fat around their chin may have better results with liposuction instead of Kybella. It is always best to consult with an experienced aesthetic professional to determine if a treatment is the right choice for you. At Destin Botox Laser and Facial Aesthetics, our experts can help assess your needs and goals and help you determine if Kybella or other treatments are right for you. Minimizing the Double Chin Appearance With Other Treatments You can reduce the appearance of a double chin with Kybella to eliminate the fat cells and/or make use of dermal fillers in the chin, jawline, and cheeks in order to lift, define, and contour your jawline. This can enhance your Kybella results. In some cases, the double chin is subtle enough that jawline contouring reduces the double chin appearance without the need for fat reduction at all! How Does Chin Filler Reduce a Double Chin? If you have a receding chin, restoring volume to the area can lift and smooth the appearance of a double chin and sagging skin. This leaves the area looking more contoured and youthful. What About Jawline Contouring and Cheek Enhancement By restoring lost volume in the cheeks and focusing on jawline contouring, we can lift the jowls and improve the contours of the jawline. Each area of focus has a compounding effect on the rest of the face, helping to reduce sagging and the appearance of fullness in other areas. It all comes together to improve your profile. BEFORE & AFTER KYBELLA Why Cosmetics are a Poor Solution for Hiding a Double Chin While cosmetics can be used to hide a double chin and achieve “face contouring”, they are not the ideal solution. Cosmetics such as foundation and concealer can only be used to cover up the area temporarily, but once washed off or rubbed off, the fullness of the double chin will still remain. The amount of time it can take to contour and apply shading to hide a double chin or improve contouring can make it difficult to maintain long-term. Furthermore, the amount of makeup needed to get the desired result is often too heavy and obvious.
