What causes a double chin?
While having a double chin does not cause health problems, it can have a major impact on your self-image and confidence. From a technical standpoint, a double chin is a layer of fatty tissue that accumulates in the chin area that creates the appearance of an extra chin.
A double chin is commonly associated with weight gain, but you can develop a double chin even if you’re at a healthy weight. Aging is a common cause of a double chin. As you age the skin loses its elasticity and can start to sag. When the skin starts to sag, any extra fat can become more pronounced, giving the appearance of an extra chin.
What is Kybella?
Kybella is an injectable that contains deoxycholic acid, a substance that breaks down fat. Once injected, Kybella causes fat cells under the chin to break down. Your body removes the destroyed fat cells in a natural detoxification process. Once complete, the results are permanent.
