Double Chins Have Met Their Match With KYBELLA®!
If you have some extra fullness beneath your chin (known as submental fullness or a “double chin”), it can be a constant source of self-consciousness, whether you’ve had it your whole life, it developed over the years, or you’ve just recently noticed it. In fact, 67% of people surveyed said they are bothered by the excess fat under their chin. KYBELLA® is a first-of-its-kind injectable treatment that destroys fat cells under the chin to improve your profile without surgery.
How Does KYBELLA® Work?
The active ingredient in FDA-approved KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat. When injected beneath the chin, KYBELLA® can effectively destroy fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction of fullness in the area. Once these cells are destroyed, they can no longer accumulate or store fat. That means no further treatment is needed once you reach your desired aesthetic goal because the cells are gone for good!
How Many Injections Of KYBELLA Will I Need?
Since everyone’s profile is different, the number of treatments varies with each patient. During your one-on-one consultation, we will determine exactly how many treatment sessions you may need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fullness and your own desired treatment goals. If multiple treatment sessions are determined to be best for your situation, sessions will likely occur at least 1 month apart, not exceeding more than 6 treatments in total. In clinical studies, 59% of patients received the maximum 6 treatments to achieve desired results.
What Can I Expect From Treatment With KYBELLA?
During your initial appointment, we will discuss your medical history and personal aesthetic goals to determine if KYBELLA is the best treatment option for you. We will then examine the area under and around your chin and tailor your treatment to the amount of fat present and your individual desired outcome. The appointment typically lasts approximately 30 minutes. Most patients experience noticeable results after only two treatments. As KYBELLA works gradually, your body will naturally rid itself of the dissolved fat over time. Results can be long lasting.
Are There Any Side Effects With KYBELLA Injections?
Immediately following your KYBELLA treatment, you will likely experience some swelling, bruising, or numbness in the treatment area. These are generally temporary and rarely severe. We will go over all potential side effects of KYBELLA during your consultation so you know exactly what to expect.
