Kybella Cosmetic Injections to Treat Double Chins
WHAT IS KYBELLA?
Kybella has been FDA-approved since April 2015 to treat double chins. When treated with Kybella you will notice a drastic improvement to the facial profile by permanently eliminating fat under the chin that creates a double chin. Kybella is a natural, non-human and non-animal derived version of deoxycholic acid. This natural occurring material is found in all of us that helps breakdown fat.
Our expert injectors will fully assess the chin area for treatment. Once all areas to treat are identified, injections are evenly injected with Kybella so there is no risk of contour irregularity. The procedure is virtually painless and the Kybella injected permanently kills the fat cells immediately. Unlike Botox or dermal fillers, Kybella is a permanent solution for the fat under your chin. Most patients begin seeing results of the fat reduction process in 3-4 weeks after injections.
FAQs for Kybella
HOW LONG AFTER KYBELLA WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Results from Kybella injections are typically gradual. Targeted fat cells are usually removed from the area within four to six weeks after receiving injections, at which point patients start to see a noticeable difference to the appearance of their profile.
WHAT SHOULD I AVOID AFTER KYBELLA?
Avoid alcohol, caffeine, niacin supplement, high-sodium foods, high sugar foods, refined carbohydrates, and spicy foods 24-48 hours before and after your treatment. These items may contribute to increased swelling or irritation.
DO YOU LOSE WEIGHT WITH KYBELLA?
This is not a weight loss procedure but instead is used for targeted fat reduction. Kybella cannot help you with a six-pack or those extra 20 pounds, but it CAN help you with moderate to severe fat reduction in the chin, neck, jowls, face, arms, bra fat, or back!
CAN YOU SEE RESULTS AFTER JUST ONE TREATMENT?
Every patient is different, but in general, you should start seeing great results after just one Kybella treatment. Most patients need one or two additional Kybella treatments if they have thicker submental fat tissue.
