Eliminate Your Double Chin

Kybella is a groundbreaking cosmetic injectable designed to address the common concern of a double chin. This non-invasive treatment involves injecting a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body, into the fat beneath the chin. Kybella works by breaking down and destroying fat cells, ultimately leading to a more defined jawline and improved facial profile. It’s a safe and effective way to eliminate excess chin fat without surgery, helping individuals regain self-confidence and achieve a more youthful appearance.

Kybella Treats:

  • Double chin
  • Submental fullness
  • Jawline contour issues

How Kybella Works

Kybella works through a scientific process known as lipolysis, which involves the breakdown of fat molecules. The active ingredient, synthetic deoxycholic acid, is injected into the submental fat beneath the chin.

Deoxycholic acid is a bile acid that naturally aids in fat digestion. When introduced to the target area, it disrupts the fat cell membrane, causing them to rupture. The body then naturally processes and eliminates these damaged fat cells over time, resulting in a noticeable reduction in chin fat and a more sculpted jawline.

Benefits of Kybella:

  • A non-surgical solution for double chin
  • Improved facial contouring
  • Minimal side effects and no downtime
  • Long-lasting results
  • Customizable treatment
  • No anesthesia required
  • Quick and relatively painless procedure

Kybella FAQs

Who is a good candidate for Kybella?

Kybella is suitable for individuals with moderate to severe submental fat, typically those bothered by the appearance of a double chin. Our healthcare providers can assess your needs and medical history to determine if Kybella is right for you.

Is Kybella a substitute for weight loss?

No, Kybella is not a weight-loss procedure. It targets localized fat deposits beneath the chin but does not replace the need for a healthy lifestyle and proper diet to achieve overall weight loss.

How many Kybella sessions are typically needed?

The number of Kybella sessions required varies from person to person, depending on the individual’s goals and the severity of the submental fat. However, many individuals undergo a series of two to four sessions, spaced about one month apart, to achieve optimal results.

What can I expect during a Kybella treatment session?

During a Kybella session, a healthcare provider will clean and mark the treatment area. They will administer a series of precise injections into the submental fat. While some discomfort is common, numbing cream or ice may be applied to minimize pain. The entire procedure typically takes around 15-20 minutes.

Is there downtime after a Kybella treatment?

Most individuals can resume their normal activities immediately after a Kybella session, as there is minimal downtime associated with the treatment. However, some may experience temporary swelling, bruising, or discomfort in the treated area, which resolves within a few days.

When will I see the results from Kybella?

Results from Kybella are not instant, as it takes time for the body to process and eliminate the fat cells. Most people notice improvements within 4 to 6 weeks after their first treatment, with gradual enhancement continuing over several months.

Are Kybella results permanent?

Yes, Kybella results are considered permanent because the treatment destroys fat cells in the treated area. However, it’s crucial to maintain a healthy lifestyle and avoid significant weight gain to preserve the aesthetic benefits.
