What factors contribute
to fat accumulation?

Also called submental fat, double chin is a common condition where a layer of fat accumulates below the chin. Although associated with being overweight, a double chin is not always linked to weight gain. With age, the skin tends to lose its strength, structure, and elasticity because the body produces lesser amounts of collagen – the skin health protein. Weight fluctuations, uneven fat distribution, natural stretching and pulling of the skin, and facial cartilage deterioration can all contribute to a double chin. Sun exposure and smoking add to the problem, while genetics can also play a role in fat accumulation below the chin.

This is where we come in with Kybella, Destin Medical Spa’s solution to this particular fat accumulation.

How does Kybella work?

Synthetic deoxycholic acid is the active ingredient in Kybella® that mimics the action of its natural form that helps our body in breaking down and digesting dietary fats in the intestine. When Kybella injections are administered beneath the skin, the targeted fat cells get destroyed and are then eliminated from the body gradually. Once destroyed, these fat cells cannot store fat any longer. The fat cells are entirely removed from the submental area within four to six weeks.

Kybella treatment procedure

The results of cosmetic treatments such as Kybella can be optimized in terms of safety and efficacy only when administered by a trained doctor well-versed in Kybella. At Destin Medical Spa, our expert aesthetic physician Dr. Amber Wiebe may use ice packs or a topical numbing medicine to enhance your comfort during the treatment. The procedure can take about fifteen minutes and involves giving multiple small injections in the submental area. The number of injections depends on the extent of fat that needs to be eliminated and on your beauty goals.


Kybella treatment outcome

Dr. Amber Wiebe designs an individualized treatment plan based on your chin profile, the volume of fat, and specific aesthetic needs. She prescribes the right injectable as well as the frequency of treatment sessions to optimize results. Anywhere between two to four Kybella treatment sessions may be required to achieve aesthetic goals, while six treatment sessions were found to provide maximum results in clinical studies.

The deoxycholic acid in Kybella destroys fat cells below the chin, and the results are long-lasting as the fat cells in the area can no longer store fat.
