Kybella is a non-surgical treatment for submental fullness or a “double chin.” Kybella is an injectable solution that is specifically designed to melt away the fat below your chin. During a series of treatments, you can achieve the definition in your jawline without invasive surgery or long downtime.
Double chin reduction
Kybella came to the world stage in 2015 as a powerful, non-invasive alternative to surgical double chin reduction procedures. Kybella uses deoxycholic acid, which is naturally produced by your body to help with the absorption of fat into your system. By injecting this substance in the fat below the chin, the targeted fat is then broken down and absorbed back into your body. Kybella is the perfect solution for people who have struggled with stubborn fat deposits under the chin that have not responded to diet and exercise. Kybella brings out that sought-after definition in your jawline, changing the overall shape of your face.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments necessary varies from person to person, as people have different amounts of stubborn fat lodged below the chin. The usual number of treatments ranges from four to six, spaced out at one-month intervals for maximum safety and optimal results. As you progress through your treatments, the results of Kybella will start to appear. In clinical studies, 59% of patients required six treatments to reach their cosmetic goals.
Natalie, the Practice Manager is the best. She will quickly text back and forth to schedule appointments, make payment seamless, and is just sweet/ funny and the backbone of the whole operation there.
Is there any downtime?
The recovery or downtime associated with Kybella is minimal. There will be some swelling and/or bruising in the treatment area that will ease over the following days. There may also be some discomfort in the treatment area as the fat cells are impacted by the injections, as well as some redness or numbness. Any side effects tend to resolve within one to two weeks after treatment. You can help to ease any side effects by avoiding any strenuous exercise after treatment as well as medications or supplements that increase the chances of bleeding and bruising such as Aspirin, Motrin, and vitamin E.
