Discover Kybella®: The Only FDA-Approved Injectable Treatment for Double Chin

If you were born with a double chin due to genetics or have developed one because of weight gain or aging, you probably know that reducing the under-chin fat deposits through diet and exercise is usually futile. Not only is it impossible to spot reduce fat anywhere on the body, but distinct fat loss in the chin will only be proportional to the fat reduction everywhere else. Therefore, if your diet and exercise regime successfully cuts two inches from your waist, you might not even notice any incremental fat loss from under the chin.

Folks in the Naples area struggling with this double chin impasse can turn to Southwest Florida’s Tru Glō Medspa for an innovative, minimally invasive treatment that naturally reduces chin fat deposits to help sculpt a slimmer, better-defined jawline. Approved by the FDA in 2015, injectable Kybella® works with the body’s metabolism to reduce submental fat deposits that cause the double chin.

How Kybella® Works

Kybella® is a synthetic formulation of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring component of bile that helps our bodies absorb fat during the digestive process. When injected into the submental area, it breaks down the fat cells, which are then expelled as part of the metabolic process. Given the relatively slow pace of metabolism, results may take up to four to six weeks after the first injection to become noticeable. However, the results are permanent because the fat cells have been destroyed. Most patients require up to six injection sessions to realize Kybella’s® full potential. They are generally conducted every six weeks to allow the body’s metabolism to work between sessions.

Before the FDA approved Kybella®, those struggling with their double chins had limited invasive options—neck lifts and micro liposuction—for treating them. Kybella® offers patients an easy, minimally invasive double chin treatment that is clinically proven safe and effective. Other Kybella® benefits include:

  • No downtime.
  • Limited pain, tenderness, and swelling.
  • Permanent results.
  • Natural-looking outcome.
  • Broad patient candidacy pool.

Kybella’s® Efficacy and Safety Profile

The FDA approved Kybella® based on efficacy and safety data demonstrated in clinical trials. According to one study that examined 20 clinical trial results worldwide, Kybella® was “shown to be extremely effective as a solitary noninvasive injectable treatment at objectively reducing submental fat through a series of injections with minimal discomfort and side effects.” Overall, almost 80% of all clinical trial patients reported satisfaction with their results. Of those who underwent six treatment sessions, 87% said that they experienced moderate to significant reductions in submental fat, leading to a more defined jawline.

Are You a Good Candidate for Kybella®?

Kybella® is FDA-approved for anyone who has excess fat in the submental area. Other than those who are pregnant or have a history of keloid scar formation, ideal Kybella® candidates should:

  • Be over age 18.
  • Have a moderate to severe pocket of submental fat.
  • Be in good health.
  • Have failed to achieve results from diet and exercise.
  • Be seeking a minimally invasive option.

What to Expect with Your Kybella® Treatment

Undergoing Kybella® treatment at Naples’ Tru Glō Medspa is quick and easy. Depending on your sensitivity, your medical spa practitioner will apply a numbing agent to the treatment area and then mark specific injection sites based on which areas will expose the most fat cells to the formulation. Once the targeted sites have been injected, the procedure is over, and you can resume your normal daily activities.

After each session, patients typically experience redness or swelling at the injection sites, as well as a numbing sensation across the submental area. These minor side effects can last up to 10 days in some patients but can be mitigated with over-the-counter pain medications.

Highly Recommend

Highly recommend TruGlo MedSpa for all laser aesthetics. Stacy Blake, over 30yrs of experience and beautiful herself, transformed my face with just one HALO treatment($1600) as seen in my before and after pictures below. Dr Gardner(best plastic surgeon in all of South Florida) owns TruGlo MedSpa.

I had consultations with all of the top doctors in South Florida; Naples, Coral Gables, Palm Beach, Boca Raton and Jupiter. I decided to go with Dr Gardner & TruGlo MedSpa. Afterwards I went back to the same top plastic surgeons who complimented Gardner’s work.

Summer H

Definitely 5 star!

Tru Glo Medspa is top notch. The office is beautiful with calm aura. Gretchen is always so helpful and knowledgeable. Stacey Blake, who has performed multiple treatments on my face from filler, Botox, Dysport, BBL and laser peels, is just amazing. She is so gentle handed and always making sure you are okay during procedures. She has even went the extra mile to assist me addressing a skin issue which I didn’t even mentioned because I didn’t think there was much I could do about it. With her help I have cleared up an issue which was really affecting my daily life and I am so thankful for her help. After having had Tru Glo’s amazing staff I would never even consider going anywhere else ever for my cosmetic needs. Definitely 5 star!

Erica M

Love Everything About this Place

I just love everything about this place! It is a little pricey but it’s really worth it if you want to see real results. Maddie knows my skin better than I do and knows every procedure & product inside and out. I’d highly recommend it to anyone that is looking to take their beauty regimen to the next level.
