Kybella™ can be administered to both, men and women. Causes of double-chin or submental fat can be the results of many factors such as genetics, weight fluctuations, hormonal changes, and normal aging processes. If you are looking for a noninvasive procedure that can help eliminate or reduce the double chin, then Kybella™ may be for you. You may be a great candidate for Kybella™ if:
- Have excess submental fat (double chin)
- Over the age of 18
- Would like to have non-surgical chin contouring improvement
- Have a realistic expectation for a non-surgical treatment
- Accept that you may require a series of treatments and vials of Kybella™ to get best results.
- Accept that swelling will occur post Kybella™ treatment
- Are looking for a treatment that provides real, noticeable results along with no surgery or recovery time.
How Kybella™ Works
Kybella™ is made from Deoxycholic Acid, which is a chemical that is naturally produced by our bodies and used to absorb fats. When injected directly into the tissue, it destroys the walls of fat cells. As the fat cells slowly dissolve, it is safely absorbed by the body, providing a decrease of fat cells in the treated area.
Coolsculpting and Ultherapy are great Medspa treatments that can be used in conjunction with Kybella to produce the best results for the submental area. See a Medspa Nurse Injector for more information on the conjunction of these therapies.
Kybella™ Treatment Areas
Kybella™ is the first and only injectable approved by the FDA to eliminate submental fat. Having an Allergan Trainer on our team allows our experienced nurse injectors to safely inject Kybella™ to other off-label areas. The number of vials, injections, and treatments needed depends on the number of fat cells present in the area. However, a series of two to six Kybella™ sessions are required to see best results. Patients have reported a mild to moderate pinching, burning and sensation of pressure during the injection.
Recovery & Results
Results of Kybella™ can be seen within 6-8 weeks of treatment. Subsequent treatments can be performed every 8 weeks. Swelling, bruising, and tenderness should be expected post-injection, and in some cases, can last 4-6 weeks. Generally, at the 3-week post-injection mark, swelling begins to subside. The more vials of Kybella™ injected in a session, may lead to more swelling of the area treated. A full, slushy feeling to the area injected is normal post procedure and in some cases, can last up to four weeks. Each patient is different and results can vary on a case to case basis.
