Dissolve Your Double Chin with Kybella® Injections

Dissolve Your Double Chin with Kybella® Injections

Now that November’s here, it’s officially the most delicious time of the year. As Thanksgiving approaches, you might be thinking of your favorite dishes to share with your loved ones. And that meal of turkey and mashed potatoes segues right into all of the sweets of the holiday season. 

Ultimately, there’s a lot to enjoy about the coming weeks. But if you look in the mirror and see a double chin, your excitement about digging in might wane.

While a double chin definitely correlates with your weight, that fat under your chin can also stem from genetics, age, and more. In other words, skipping the foods you love this holiday season probably won’t be enough to get rid of it.

Fortunately, we have a solution for you. Here at Hanami Medspa in Fort Worth, Texas, Elaine Phuah, DO, MBA, FACOI, and our team offer Kybella®.  This injectable treatment seeks out and destroys the fat cells under your chin. If you want to dissolve your double chin and head into 2024 looking and feeling your best, keep reading to learn more about this treatment option. 

Understanding Kybella

Kybella is an FDA-cleared treatment that uses deoxycholic acid to dissolve fat under your chin. 

Your body naturally contains this acid, which it uses to break down and absorb dietary fat. 

The deoxycholic acid in Kybella is synthetic, but it works the same. When injected under your chin, it permanently destroys the fat cells it reaches. Over the coming weeks, your body goes to work flushing out those now-destroyed fat cells, leaving you with a more svelte profile. 

The best part? The treatment takes just 20 minutes, and you don’t have to worry about any downtime. You might have some swelling or bruising afterward, but many people apply a little makeup and continue on with their usual activities.

To minimize disruption to your daily life, we can schedule Kybella late in the day so you can rest at home while any side effects dissipate. 

Tailoring your Kybella treatment to your goals

Some people opt for just one Kybella treatment, but most people choose repeat sessions to move the needle further on their results. In clinical studies, most people saw notable results with 2–4 sessions and opted for six sessions for maximal benefit. 

We schedule your Kybella appointments at least one month apart so the deoxycholic acid can fully run its course between each treatment. 

We know that the holiday season is a busy time of year, but adding these quick, no-downtime injections can make it easier to enjoy Thanksgiving and beyond with less worry about your double chin. If you want to face 2024 feeling confident, call Hanami Medspa or make an appointment online today to talk with Dr. Phuah about Kybella.
