Put Your Best Chin Forward with KYBELLA®

A KYBELLA® treatment is the perfect solution to the dreaded double chin. You get older, gravity takes hold, and even if you haven’t gained weight, the double chin appears. In recent decades, the only treatment options available to get rid of a double chin were liposuction and plastic surgery. Luckily, skincare and medical technology has progressed, and there is now a new, non-surgical treatment available for loose skin under the chin. Called KYBELLA®™, this treatment can help patients with unwanted fat achieve long-term improvements in their appearance and profile.

The KYBELLA® treatment is the first in its class. The medicine is injected into fat under the chin, destroying targeted fat cells in this part of the body (submental fat). The active ingredient in a KYBELLA® treatment is synthetic deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule in the body. This substance aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Once the treatment breaks down these fat cells, the remaining cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. This results in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin that lasts.

 

What to Expect from KYBELLA®® Treatment

Before the procedure, we will clean your skin, mark the proposed areas of treatment, and check with you to ensure the target is right on the bullseye. We will then inject a numbing medicine to make the procedure more comfortable, then inject KYBELLA®® into the areas of unwanted fat.

After the procedure, you should expect to experience moderate swelling, redness, firmness, numbness, achiness, and bruising in the treated area. These effects should resolve within a few days to a couple of weeks. Once the swelling goes down, you’ll start to see the results.

The KYBELLA® treatment appears gradually, becoming apparent over several weeks. This happens as the fat cells are removed from the area by the body’s scavenger cells. Most patients will typically require 2-4 treatments to see maximum results, and these additional treatments can be scheduled 6 weeks apart as needed.

Remember that a KYBELLA® treatment is only available from medical professionals, and it is the only non-surgical procedure designed specifically to target under chin fat and skin. If you want to make a change to your face or profile, this might be the product for you. Schedule a consultation to discover how the treatment can improve your confidence.
