A common problem many men and women experience as they get older is the dreaded double chin. Over time, Submental fat (fat under the chin) can accumulate below the jawline, making you feel overweight or look older than your years. Typically, double chins are caused by weight fluctuations, aging or genetics. When caused by genetics, submental fat can be very stubborn and despite diet and exercise – may not go away.
Until recently, improving the appearance of a double chin meant surgery or liposuction, resulting in recovery time and modifying your normal activities. Now there is an innovate, non-surgical way to reduce the fullness under your chin and improve your appearance and profile.
Kybella™ is the first FDA approved, injectable treatment that safely and effectively dissolves the fat under your chin. Kybella is safe for all skin types and ethnicities. There is no downtime required and you can immediately return to your normal activities, including exercise.
Kybella works by breaking down the targeted fat cells, which are then safely absorbed by your body. As the fat cells dissolve, they are permanently destroyed and can no longer store or accumulate fat. With each treatment, your chin will become smoother and more sculpted. Once your series of treatments are complete, no follow up appointments are needed. Your results are long-lasting.
Are Kybella treatments painful?
While most people don’t consider them painful, you may feel mild discomfort or pressure under your chin. Topical or local anesthetics are often recommended for a more comfortable experience.
How long does each treatment take?
Most treatment session will take less than 30 minutes
Are there any side effects?
The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness and areas of hardness around the treatment area.
How many treatments will I need?
Typically, 2 to 4 treatments are needed. Up to 6 treatments may be administered.
How long will the results last?
Fat cells that are destroyed by Kybella injections do not regenerate, making your treatment results permanent.
