How to Achieve the Ultimate Jawline

Published on May 29, 2020


Excess fat can accumulate anywhere on our body and our face, including in the area underneath our chin. The fat that is stored there is particularly stubborn and typically doesn’t respond to diet and exercise. This can be extremely frustrating for patients who are keen to eliminate the excess fat around their jawline that may be causing them to look and feel heavier or older than they actually are. Fortunately, you don’t have to go under the knife to make significant changes to your jawline.


Are you:

  • Unhappy with the appearance of your jawline?

  • Embarrassed by your double chin?

  • Concerned that your face shape makes you look heavier or older than you actually are?

  • Unable or unwilling to undergo an invasive surgical procedure?

  • Frustrated that diet and exercise don’t seem to be helping you to achieve the results that you are looking for?

  • Ready to embrace the ultimate jawline?


If you can answer yes to these questions, then you may be ready to achieve the ultimate jawline using Kybella.


Kybella: An Overview


Kybella is an injectable treatment that has received FDA approval for use under the chin in order to help patients remove the appearance of excess fat and achieve a stronger, more defined jaw. The main ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid which destroys fat cells, enabling them to be metabolized by the body so that they are permanently eliminated. This means that once you reach your desired aesthetic goal, there shouldn’t be any need for further treatment provided that you don’t go on to gain a significant amount of weight.


The Kybella Treatment Process


Kybella→can only be administered by a trained provider and can usually be carried out in just a 20-minute appointment. As an injectable treatment, it is minimally invasive, leaving no scarring and requiring no downtime following the appointment. Patients usually have the choice as to whether they would like to have a topical anesthetic administered before their injections which will help to ensure that they don’t experience any discomfort. Following your appointment, you may notice some slight numbness, swelling, and even bruising under your chin. However, this should only last for a few days before easing and disappearing.  



The Number of Treatments Needed


Every patient is unique in their profile, and this means that the number of injections and sessions needed will vary depending on your individual requirements. Your provider will be able to provide more insight during your consultation, which will be based on the extent of the excess fat around your jaw and your personal treatment goals. However, this may be altered during the course of your treatment depending on how quickly and effectively Kybella works for you. Each Kybella session is spaced at least a month apart, with a maximum of 6 treatments being recommended.
