Why Do I Have a Double Chin When I’m Skinny?
A shapely jawline can make up for a multitude of sins in your overall appearance. However, a double chin isn’t only related to weight gain. Sometimes a double chin can be blamed on genetics, or even posture, the so-called “tech neck.” The worst part is there aren’t a lot of targeted exercises to correct a double chin. At Baltic Beauty Centre, however, we offer Kybella®, the only FDA-approved injectable that treats the double chin.
How Can I Treat My Double Chin?
If you’re tired of unflattering photos, angling your chin just so for a better selfie, or otherwise wishing your jawline wasn’t quite so indistinct, Kybella® may be your perfect solution. It works by taking advantage of the body’s own design.
Made of deoxycholic acid, a natural substance the body uses to break down dietary fat, Kybella® slowly dissolves fat cells in the submental area (under the chin along the jawline toward the neck). Once the fat cell membranes are disrupted, they’re filtered away through the body’s waste removal systems. Since we don’t produce more fat cells once we reach adulthood, the fat Kybella® dissolves is gone for good. You’re left with the jawline you’ve always wanted, a sculpted contour that can restore your confidence and have you holding your head high.
Am I a Good Candidate?
If your double chin causes you grief, sours your self-confidence, and persists regardless of your diet and exercise routine, Kybella® may be a great option. Kybella® is also an attractive treatment for patients who aren’t interested in having surgery, like liposuction, to address their double chin. The friendly experts at Baltic Beauty Centre are happy to get you started with a comprehensive consultation.
What is Kybella® Treatment Like?
Your Kybella® treatment begins with the creation of a detailed plan to determine the best placement of the injections for an optimal outcome based on your facial anatomy. Once your treatment plan is created, your Baltic Beauty Centre specialist will inject Kybella® in the precise quantity, depth, and location to melt away your double chin. Your appointment will last up to 45 minutes, and you’ll be free to resume your regular activities following treatment.

Is There Any Downtime with Kybella®?
You may experience injection site tenderness, and some possible swelling, but these resolve in a few hours to days and don’t usually impede your regular responsibilities. Some over-the-counter medicines like Tylenol may help with any discomfort.
What Results Can I Expect?
It takes the body time to filter out the fat cells Kybella® disrupts, so your double chin won’t diminish overnight. Some patients prefer this so their cosmetic work is less obvious to loved ones. Results become visible 4-6 weeks after your initial treatment, and many patients require 2-3 treatments to achieve their jawline sculpting goals. After about 6 months, your double chin will be dramatically reduced if not entirely gone.
Not all the fat cells in your submental area are melted away by Kybella® so maintaining a healthy lifestyle with proper diet and exercise will help keep the remaining fat cells from growing in size and changing your results.
