Are You a Kybella® Candidate?
This minimally invasive technique can be an excellent alternative to liposuction for women and men who are having trouble achieving their desired under-chin contour through diet and exercise alone, but who do not wish to undergo a surgical procedure or lengthy recovery process.
Let’s face it, a double chin can make you look older and heavier no matter what your age or weight. And, in many cases, this type of fat doesn’t respond to lifestyle changes such as diet or exercise. Fortunately, there’s a new way to reduce submental fat without going under the “knife.”
What is Kybella?
The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.When injected into the fat beneath your chin, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
How does Kybella work?
Kybella contains a naturally occurring molecule (deoxycholic acid) which breaks down fat cells, leaving other healthy cells intact. This allows practitioners to contour the area without affecting surrounding tissue. Once injected, the unique solution works to immediately break apart localized fat cells in the treatment region. Fragmented fat cells are then gradually expelled from the body via natural metabolic processes, leaving behind an improved contour below the chin.
Is Kybella safe?
Kybella was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2015. And, since it is a non invasive procedure with minimal side effects, there are less risks when compared to surgery.
What to Expect
How many treatments do I need?
The number of treatments that each patient will need varies. Typically, patients receive between two and four treatments, but patients with severe double chins may need to receive as many as six treatments.
How much downtime?
You can return to your normal activities right away. While visible swelling in the chin and neck area is common, it usually subsides within a few weeks of receiving treatment.
How quickly will I see results?
The slimming effects of Kybella tend to gradually improve over the course of several weeks as the targeted fat tissue is eliminated from the body. Once the final outcome is apparent, the results should be very long-lasting. In fact, the majority of patients do not require retreatment in the future as long as a stable weight is maintained.
