Kybella—Eliminate Your Double Chin Without Surgery
The dreaded double chin! You aren’t alone if your decreasingly defined jawline leaves you feeling less than your best. Neck fat is particularly frustrating because it’s challenging to target. Until recently liposuction was the only option. Now there’s a growing list of non-invasive and minimally invasive treatment options. Redefine your jawline and put your best face forward with the non-surgical double chin removal options below.
#1 Diet, Exercise, and Weight Loss
Let’s begin with the most obvious options, adjusting your diet and fitness plan for whole-body weight loss. Working out and infusing your diet with whole foods, including lean proteins, whole grains, and fresh produce is an effective means of weight loss. The more fat you have underneath your chin, the more you’re likely to see positive results.
However, it’s unlikely that your jowl and neck will regain their former definition with diet and exercise alone.
Nutrition: Prioritize antioxidant-rich foods, Omega-3 fatty acids, and foods that support the restoration of collagen and elastin proteins. We lose both of these foundational proteins as we age, so a proactive approach to preservation and restoration is essential for anti-aging. Specifically, for minimizing skin laxity.
Stimulate circulation: Consider at-home facial massage using your hands, a facial roller, and other gentle devices to stimulate healing circulation. Increased blood flow circulates healing nutrients throughout the body and to the upper layers of skin tissues and cells. With consistency, this may help tighten and tone sagging skin.
Targeted exercise: Traditional gym workouts don’t hyper-target the jowl and jawline. So, consider adding facial yoga, and neck, head, and jaw exercises to tighten and tone. You can find plenty of exercises online. Consistency is key.
#2 Kybella Injections
Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable designed specifically for non-surgical double chin removal. It strategically targets, dissolves, and absorbs submental fat cells (aka. chin fat).
This is particularly exciting because it’s one of the only ways to permanently eliminate fat cells without surgery. Even when you lose weight naturally, your fat cells remain. They shrink, but your cell count remains the same. With Kybella, unless you gain an excessive amount of weight, it’s unlikely that you will struggle with chin fat again!
The treatment consists of a series of 20 to 50 tiny injections, placed 1 centimeter apart along the jowl and underneath the chin. A minimum of 4 treatments spaced 2 to 4 weeks apart are required to see results, but most patients have between 4 and 6 treatments.
Skin is numbed topically, so you won’t feel a thing!
How Kybella Targets Fat Cells?
Kybella contains a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid. This is a naturally occurring molecule in our body, so it’s safe and effective for most. What makes this molecule unique is its ability to target fat while leaving surrounding tissues unharmed.
Can You Use Kybella on Other Areas of the Body?
Rejuvenate only offers Kybella to target submental fullness. If you’re interested in full-body contouring, we suggest Morpheus8. We may even suggest using a combination of these two treatments for synergetic benefits.
Morpheus8: Revitalize with Microneedling
Morpheus8 combines two powerful aesthetic modalities, radiofrequency and microneedling. This FDA-approved treatment provides state-of-the-art body contouring, firming, tightening, and skin resurfacing. It’s effective for non-surgical double chin removal and can be used on the neck, face, and other areas of your body.
A total of 4 to 6 treatments are required, spaced every 4 to 6 weeks. Maintenance is required every 12 weeks for ongoing anti-aging benefits.
Also referred to in the skincare industry as “RF”, radiofrequency sends low-grade concentrated bursts of energy into the deep tissue layers of the skin. This helps the body remodel existing collagen and elastin and stimulates new growth of these anti-aging proteins. RF also permanently dissolves fat cells. Although bursts of energy penetrate your skin, you won’t feel a thing.
Morpheus8 provides next-level microneedling, utilizing 0.5mm to 8mm thin pins to penetrate the skin. The depth is determined by the area of the body being treated and your aesthetic objectives. This fractional treatment activates the body’s natural healing process, to tighten and tone skin. It also stimulates collagen and elastin. Microneedling isn’t pain-free, but we ensure you’re comfortable.

Can I Use Both Kybella and Microneedling?
Combining these two treatments may be an option, but they need to be spaced out accordingly. If your primary objective is to eliminate fat cells under the chin, Kybella may be all you need. If you also have neck creases, Morpheus8 solo or combined with Kybella may be the best option.
