Many factors can contribute to a double chin, which is also called submental fullness, and not all of them have to do with your weight. While weight certainly plays a significant role in whether you develop a double chin as your body stores excess fat wherever it can, submental fullness can develop in people of all ages and sizes.
Outside of weight, simple genetics plays a significant role in whether you may be prone to a double chin. As well, your facial structure — most notably a weaker chin — can also lend itself to the appearance of a double chin.
Age is also a factor as your skin loses structural support, which allows fat to fall and gather at the lowest point, which, in this case, means under your chin.
Rounding out the list of risk factors is poor posture — if you don’t use your head and neck muscles sufficiently, they can become lax, allowing a double chin to develop.
No matter how your double chin developed, the good news is that there is a solution. The team at eleven19 Medical Spa + Weight Loss offers Kybella, which is an injectable approved by the FDA to destroy the extra fat under your chin.
The key ingredient in Kybella is synthetic deoxycholic acid, which, in its natural form, is a molecule in your body that helps break down and absorb dietary fat. The synthetic version in Kybella accomplishes the same thing under your chin and permanently destroys the fat cells responsible for your double chin.
The team at eleven19 Medical Spa + Weight Loss administers Kybella via injections, allowing you to eliminate your double chin without resorting to surgery.
The answer to this depends upon the size of your double chin, but most patients benefit from 2-3 treatments. During each treatment, your aesthetician first numbs the target area and then injects Kybella directly into your submental fat. You receive multiple injections of Kybella during each treatment, but it only takes about 15-20 minutes, and there’s no downtime afterward.
Over the weeks following your Kybella treatments, your submental area shrinks as the targeted fat cells shrink and are flushed out naturally.
