Kybella Double Chin Reduction

Excess fat under the chin, commonly known as a double chin, is difficult to get rid of with diet and exercise. Ogden Clinic Bountiful offers Kybella, a double chin treatment that helps reduce excess fat in this area for an improved appearance. Our dermatologists in Bountiful are board-certified experts in all skin conditions, both medical and aesthetic. If you are not pleased with the look of your chin, call Ogden Clinic dermatology to learn more about Kybella.

How Kybella Works

Kybella at Ogden Clinic involves receiving small injections under the chin. These double chin injections contain a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, which helps destroy fat cells. Damaged fat cells exit the body through natural processes, resulting in less fullness under the chin without the need for more invasive treatments, such as double chin surgery. Kybella is an FDA-approved treatment for use on excess fat under the chin and is generally considered safe. Those who have infections in the treated area should not receive this treatment.

Kybella Treatment and Results at Ogden Clinic

The number of treatments each patient needs for optimal results varies based on different factors, such as the amount of excess fat being treated. Some patients have noticeable results after two treatments, while others need up to six treatments. When Kybella destroys fat cells, they don’t grow back, so additional treatments are usually not needed once patients achieve desired results.

Kybella Side Effects

Kybella is considered a safe form of double chin treatment, but it can cause certain side effects. Common ones, which are generally mild and temporary, include some swelling and redness in the treated area. Some patients also have bruising, soreness and numbness. More serious side effects, such as difficulty swallowing or nerve injuries, are rare.
