Kybella is an FDA-approved treatment to reduce submental fat. Though it was first introduced to reduce fat under the chin (also known as a double chin), it is also effective in other small areas of the body that experiences extra fat—such as the bra fat, abdomen fat, "banana roll" fat area below the butt/back of thighs, or residual fat after liposuction procedures. The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Kybella is administered through a series of injections; the total treatment time takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The number of injections you’ll need depends on the severity of the fat. Most patients won’t need more than six injections (each spaced one month apart) to see ideal results. Those with skin laxity may not be ideal candidates for Kybella treatments, as the injection does not contract or tighten the skin. It is a great treatment option for those with small fat deposits who do not [...]

It seems to be a tale as old as time: No matter how hard you work out or how clean you eat, the fat tissue underneath your chin refuses to bulge. In fact, it’s making it tough for you to show off all your hard work, simply because that double chin makes you seem like you’re carrying excessive weight. Excess submental fat – otherwise known as a double chin – happens for a variety of reasons. One of the most obvious is weight gain; however, some people are genetically prone to developing excess submental fat. To make matters worse, this area can be notoriously difficult to treat, as facial fat is typically lost as a result of larger weight loss. For people struggling to lose their chin fat, there are two fantastic options available at Laser Skin Care Center in Long Beach, CA – Kybella and chin liposuction.
