Men Love Kybella® Too: Here’s Why

Men Love Kybella® Too: Here’s Why

Is a double chin or ‘submental fat’ undermining your self-confidence? If so, consider Kybella®, the surgery-free solution that allows you to banish that unwanted extra face padding. 

Kybella® is among the most popular services for men at Best Impression Med Spa in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania. Under the leadership of Dr. Robert Mirabile and Dr. Vivian Hsu, our specialists are proud to offer expert Kybella treatment, specifically designed to tackle under-chin fat and restore a youthful appearance

Causes of a double chin

The fat that makes up a double chin is called submental fat. It builds up under the chin if you gain weight, especially as you get older.

Genetics also plays a role in a double chin. If your parents and siblings have a double chin, your risk increases of having one, too.

Worsening the appearance of a double chin is the loose skin that can begin to hang from your face and neck as you lose elasticity due to an age-related slowdown of your natural collagen production.

What to do about that double chin

If your double chin isn’t very pronounced or you don’t have one yet, there are exercises you can do to help tone and firm the muscles under your chin. One of them involves tilting your head toward the ceiling and pushing your jaw forward. Doing this several times a day can help fight against a double chin.

However, if your double chin has crept up on you and it’s too late for exercise, Kybella injections may be the solution for you, especially if you’re not interested in surgical liposuction or other invasive procedures.

How Kybella tackles a double chin

Kybella is a prescription medication that can treat moderate to severe submental fat. FDA-approved for use in adults, Kybella injections contain synthetic deoxycholic acid, a molecule that already occurs naturally in your body.

This acid is highly effective in breaking down submental fat. We carefully inject the medication into specific areas underneath your chin to destroy the surrounding fat cells.

After treatment, your body naturally eliminates these dead fat cells and they never return.

The long-lasting results of Kybella

Kybella works by breaking down submental fat cells, and this process takes some time to occur. We may recommend multiple treatments with Kybella, depending on the severity of your double chin and your overall health.

Once you’ve completed your treatment, you can expect to start seeing results in 3-4 weeks. Over the weeks following your treatment, the submental fat will begin to disappear to reveal a slimmer neckline and no more double chin.

Kybella is generally well-tolerated, and any side effects should be minimal. You may have some mild bruising and redness at the injection sites that should go away in a few days.
