kybella non-surgical treatments for double chin

Kybella

Kybella the first and ONLY FDA-approved non-surgical injectable treatment to improve moderate to severe fat beneath the chin (the dreaded double chin!) by permanently destroying the fat cells in the treatment area.

Once injected, Kybella, made of deoxycholic acid, destroys the fat cells. These damaged cells are then gradually metabolized by the body over the next couple of weeks, resulting in a reduction in the volume of the treatment region.

In addition to being the go-to treatment for a double chin, Kybella is now also being used for getting rid of unwanted fat in areas such as the lower buttocks, the back (for bra bulges), the armpits, the inner knees, and the lower belly. Since it is a minimally invasive technique, Kybella is fast emerging as the preferred alternative for the more invasive liposuction procedures.

Kybella FAQ

In some people, diet and exercise will tone arms, legs or define abs but not minimize a double chin. The extra fat pad under the chin may be genetic or has become more prominent with age. Kybella is an excellent alternative to more invasive procedures such as liposuction or neck lift. Downtime is minimal and recovery is simple.
Kybella is ideal for someone with a distinct appearance of fat under the chin and good skin elasticity.

Kybella does not treat skin laxity, tighten muscle or treat neck wrinkles, therefore your injector with evaluate your area of concern and determine if you are a good candidate for Kybella.
Prior to the treatment, a topical anesthetic may be applied to numb the area. During treatment, a small needle or cannula (blunt tip needle) is used to inject Kybella into the treatment area. A small burning or stinging can be felt during treatment but is mild and tolerable. Small ice packs are provided after the treatment to help with swelling and discomfort.
There is minimal downtime with the procedure. After the treatment you may experience mild swelling and discomfort. This can be alleviated with ice packs and over the counter pain medication.

Yes! This treatment benefits both men and women.
The number of Kybella treatments are determined by the amount of fat in the treatment area, your overall aesthetic goals and your body’s response to the treatment. In most patients, visible results are generally seen with 2 – 4 treatments. Each treatment is spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
Kybella begins breaking down fat cells immediately after the injection procedure. Treatment results gradually develop over the first few weeks as the body absorbs the dissolved fat cells. Once the cells dissolve, fat can no longer accumulate there. Collagen production is also stimulated in the healing process leading to a tauter jawline. Some patients may require multiple treatments to achieve their aesthetic goal.
