Double Chin Treatment with Deoxycholic Acid (Kybella)
As the aging process takes place, some people develop a deposit of fat beneath the chin known as “submental” fat. At The Natural Path, we have had success using injections of deoxycholic acid to treat this problem area.
How Kybella (deoxycholic acid) works!
Kybella® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into subcutaneous fat, it causes the destruction of fat cells resulting in a decreased appearance of fullness or “double chin.”
The procedure involves injections of deoxycholic acid in specific places under the chin using a very fine needle. Three treatments each 4-6 weeks apart are recommended for optimal success.
