Multiple injections under the chin per treatment; up to 6 treatments spaced at least 1 month apart. 59% of patients received 6 KYBELLA® treatments in clinical studies. Treatment is tailored to the amount of fat under the chin and aesthetic goals.

 

Causes:

A double chin is caused by an extra layer of fat that develops beneath the chin.
A few different factors combine in the body to create a double chin. Understanding these factors may help with understanding ways to get rid of the double chin itself.

Age:
The skin can start to lose its elasticity as the body ages, which can lead to the appearance of extra or saggy skin that may contribute to a double chin.

Diet and weight:
While weight gain is not always the cause of a double chin, it can contribute to it. A diet high in calories, processed foods, and unhealthful fats may influence weight gain and a double chin as well.

Genetics:
Genes may play a role in people developing a double chin. Anyone with a family history of skin with little elasticity or double chins might be more likely to develop one themselves.

Posture:
Poor posture can weaken the muscles of the neck and chin. This may contribute to a double chin over time, as the surrounding skin loses its elasticity when the muscles are not used.

 

Procedures that can fix a double chin. There are three main procedures for treating a double chin:

 

  • Kybella: KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells in the treatment area under the chin to improve your profile.KYBELLA® MAY BE RIGHT FOR YOU IF:
    • You’re bothered (unhappy, self-conscious, embarrassed) by fat under the chin, also known as submental fullness
    • You feel the condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are
    • You don’t want to have surgery
    • You eat well and exercise, but submental fullness does not go away

  • Liposculpting: Liposculpture treats a double chin by removing the fat through suction or with a laser. Liposcultping will not create more elasticity in the skin; it will only remove fat.
  • Surgery: Liposuction and neck lift.
