Why Do I Have a Double Chin When I’m Skinny?
Believe it or not, a double chin is not always a sign of a weight problem. That’s what makes submental fullness—an extra layer of fat beneath the jaw—so insidious. It’s not something that can be completely controlled by a healthy lifestyle. Thankfully, Pure Beauty Medical Spa has a solution to help you with your double chin.
How Kybella® Works
Your double chin may or may not be caused by things you can control. While you have power over your diet and weight and your posture, you can’t stop aging, nor can you shape your genetics or control hormone levels. Yet submental fullness is exacerbated by all these things. That’s where Kybella® comes in. Kybella® is one of only two non-surgical treatments for the double chin approved by the FDA.
Kybella® gets its brilliance from the body itself. We produce deoxycholic acid to break down dietary fat in other parts of the body. Kybella® takes this concept and concentrates it in the area under the chin, using deoxycholic acid to target that extra layer of fat we all hate. That fat takes a little time to dissolve, and while we all want to look as good as we can as quickly as possible, the slower results of Kybella® work to our advantage. Skin that has become lax due to submental fullness has time to tighten with the slowly dissolving fat cells, so the result is a much tighter, more sculpted and defined jawline and neck. The best part is that once the fat cells are dissolved, they’re gone. A healthy lifestyle is all the further maintenance treatment you need to keep the double chin at bay.
Am I a Good Candidate for Kybella®?
There are really no special requirements patients must fit to be a good candidate for Kybella® injections. Be sure to provide any medications you’re taking during your Pure Beauty Consultation.

What Can I Expect From Kybella® Treatments?
Kybella® is administered by a trained specialist at Pure Beauty Medical Spa, someone who knows, based on your facial aesthetics, exactly where to place the injections. Patients typically require 2-4 Kybella® sessions which last approximately 30 minutes. The number of treatments depends on the amount of submental fullness you’re having treated and your aesthetic goals. While there’s very little downtime associated with Kybella®, patients experience some numbness, swelling, bruising, and tenderness after the treatment. These resolve within the first 24 hours and lessen in severity with each treatment.
Results are not immediate because the body needs time to dissolve and filter away the dead fat cells. This slow reduction of fat gives the skin time to tighten around your remodeled chin’s new shape, making the treatment more effective than laser fat reduction procedures. After 8-12 weeks, you’ll see a fairly significant reduction in submental fullness.
Board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Charles J. Sarosy and Pure Beauty’s highly qualified and expertly trained team have the talent, training, and experience, to help you redefine your jawline and your profile.
