Dissolve That Double Chin with FDA-Approved Kybella® Injections

Dissolve That Double Chin with FDA-Approved Kybella® Injections

At the beginning of a new year, many of us set new goals to help us look our best. But some things, like a double chin, are hard to beat with diet and exercise alone. 

Also called submental fullness, a double chin makes 68% of Americans unhappy with their profile. Factors like aging and genetics, not just weight gain, can cause you to get a double chin.

At Chrysolite Aesthetics, we have a solution: nonsurgical, injectable Kybella®. This FDA-approved injectable destroys the fat cells under your chin, letting Dr. Rawan Abu-Zeitoon help patients in the Houston, Texas, area say goodbye to their double chin.

Keep reading to learn more about why you may have a double chin and how this nonsurgical treatment can help dissolve it.

What’s the deal with a double chin?

Having a double chin is frustrating. Even if you’re at your goal body weight, a double chin can make you look older or overweight. Plus, most people don’t know that the fat under your chin that creates submental fullness is actually one of the hardest pockets of fat to lose

While being overweight or obese can be reasons for submental fullness, they aren’t the only ones. Having loose or excess skin, the effects of aging and gravity, and genetics also play a role. 

Because of this, diet and exercise sometimes can’t cut it when it comes to a double chin. But nonsurgical Kybella can!

What is Kybella?

Kybella is a cosmetic injectable FDA-approved for use with adults to permanently dissolve fat cells beneath the chin. It uses deoxycholic acid to do this, a natural molecule that breaks down and digests fat.

At Chrysolite Aesthetics, we inject Kybella directly into your double chin and let the deoxycholic acid get to work. The treated fat cells and other cellular waste are removed through your body’s natural waste removal processes.

Depending on your submental fullness and your aesthetic goals, the number of sessions to achieve the results you want will vary. But, most patients find results they love after two to six sessions. 

One of the best things about Kybella is that once fat cells are eliminated, they don’t regenerate. This means that as long as you maintain a healthy weight, your results are permanent.

What should I expect from the treatment?

Dr. Abu-Zeitoon meets with you to discuss your medical history, assess your submental fullness, and go over your aesthetic goals. She then determines the number of injections you need and the location under your chin to inject them, creating your customized treatment plan.

Each session is about 15-20 minutes and is scheduled about a month apart. Your plan will explain how many sessions you need, but six is the maximum number. This means if you start now, you’ll dissolve your double chin by the summer!

Who can get Kybella?

Patients at a healthy weight and whose submental fat doesn’t budge even after changes in diet and exercise are good candidates for Kybella. But the only way to be sure if Kybella is for you is by seeing an expert, like Dr. Abu-Zeitoon at

Chrysolite Aesthetics. 

The risk of side effects from Kybella is small. However, it’s essential to remember that Kybella is not a weight loss aid, and if you’re struggling with your weight, Kybella might not be suitable for you.
