Kybella: A Welcome Solution to Stubborn Double Chin Fat

Diwan Kybella blog There is something to be said about the allure of a sleek, sculpted jawline and neck. However, for many, a defined chin can be hard to achieve. According to the American Society for Dermatology (ASDS), 67 percent of the population is bothered by excess fat under the chin and neck.  With Kybella, this can change.

FDA Approved just this past April, Kybella has been quick to garner attention and for good reason! A revolutionary treatment, Kybella is an injectable solution that has the power to melt submental (under the chin) fat. Dr. Diwan now has a non- surgical tool to treat an often troublesome area.

Understanding Your Double Chin

Commonly known as a “double chin”, submental fullness occurs as fat accumulates. Three factors most directly contribute to a double chin: genetics, age, and weight fluctuation. Just like other stubborn pockets of fat, the chin is a hard area to specifically target and many find it hard to lose this added fullness through diet and exercise. Did You Know? A little facial fullness is healthy—giving your face a soft and youthful roundness. Facial fat also contains adult stem cells, which are essential for cell renewal and collagen production. When stripped of all fat (by any method, including diet), the lost volume gives way to wrinkles—making your face appear aged and tired. A solution to a troubling conundrum, Kybella can give you the slim and shapely chin you desire. Diwan Kybella photo for website and blog woman

Understanding Kybella

Kybella, is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance produced by our body to help break down and absorb fat. Upon injection, Kybella disrupts the membrane of the fat cell, causing it to “lyse”, or burst. The fat is liquefied, absorbed, and naturally flushed out of the body. No longer present, the cells cannot store or accumulate fat. Destroying the fat cells directly, Kybella is an effective solution. Kybella is an excited new, non- surgical treatment option .
