Kybella® is taking the aesthetic industry by storm. This quick, non-surgical treatment gets rid of the dreaded double chin (submental fat). Influenced by factors such as aging, genetics and weight gain, submental fat is often difficult to reduce through diet and exercise alone. Thankfully, Kybella® makes up for the shortcomings of diet and exercise by specifically targeting and destroying fat cells.
IS KYBELLA® RIGHT FOR ME?
Extraneous submental fat can be frustrating. If you’re bothered by fullness under your chin schedule a consult to discuss your options. Minimally invasive and quick, Kybella® is an excellent option for those looking to treat their double chin without surgery.
WHAT IS KYBELLA®?
Kybella® is the first and only FDA-approved non-surgical treatment to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe submental fat. The active ingredient, deoxycholic acid is a naturally-occurring molecule that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat in the body. Administered through a series of injections under the chin, Kybella® effectively destroys fat cells, preventing the storage or accumulation of fat. For this reason, Kybella® is considered a permanent, non-surgical treatment option.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM THE TREATMENTS?
Our skin experts will work with you to design a customized treatment plan to improve the profile of your neck and chin. During your treatment, your provider will mark out the area being treated with injections.
A numbing agent may be used to make the procedure more comfortable, but most patients only report mild discomfort. Multiple injections with a small, fine needle will be made into the fatty tissues under the chin. If needles aren’t your thing, don’t worry: the entire procedure only lasts a few minutes. You may experience warmth and swelling following your treatment, but it will fade.
WHEN WILL I NOTICE MY RESULTS?
Everyone is different and the number of injections and treatments will depend on the extent of your submental fullness. For many patients 3-5 treatment sessions are recommended to accomplish the desired results. Treatment sessions are spaced at least one month apart, but the results are worth the wait.
