Causes may include:
- Aging. A double-chin may naturally develop as you age.
- Weight Gain. A double-chin may be a result of gaining weight.

Kybella Procedure OverviewTreatment for unwanted fat
Expect swelling and bruising that start to fade within 3-5 days days of treatment.
Noticeable effects after 12 weeks or at least 2 sessions. Maximum results can be seen after six months and are meant to be long-lasting.
How Does Kybella Work?
Kybella™ is the first and only FDA-approved non-surgical treatment used in adults to improve your appearance by helping to reduce a double-chin. The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
How Many Kybella Treatments Will I Need?
Many patients treated with Kybella experience visible contouring of their chin profile with only 2 to 4 treatments. Some people require up to 6 treatments in order to achieve results. Once your chin profile has improved, you may not need to be treated with Kybella again.
Kybella is not for everyone. All medical procedures involve risk and results are not guaranteed. The most common side effects of Kybella include: swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area. These are not all of the possible side effects of Kybella.
