Diminish Double Chin with Kybella
You don’t have to be overweight to have fullness under your chin; even with exercise or a healthy diet, sometimes this stubborn fat won’t go away. Whether it is caused from weight gain, genetics, or aging, Kybella is a safe and effective treatment to improve your chin profile. It is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat below the chin.
How Kybella Works:
Kybella contains synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid occurs naturally in the body to aid in the breakdown and absorption of fat. When injected beneath the chin, the substance targets and eliminates fat cells. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, removing the need for additional treatment. Deoxycholic acid stimulates the production of collagen in your body as well. Over 90% of patients had similar or improved skin laxity after treatment.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Your Nurse Injector will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat, as well your personal treatment goals. Many patients see visible results after 2-4 sessions. Space your Kybella treatment sessions at least 1 month apart. You should not receive more than 6 treatments total. At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin. The entire injection process only takes about 15 to 20 minutes.
What To Expect:
After treatment, you will likely have some swelling, bruising, redness, or numbness under your chin. This may last a few days or longer. Be sure to inform your provider if you develop an uneven smile, facial muscle weakness, or difficulty swallowing.
