Are you tired of feeling self-conscious about your double chin? Do you want a more defined jawline and a youthful appearance? Kybella® may be the solution you’ve been looking for.
Kybella® is a non-surgical, FDA approved treatment that helps to contour and define the jawline by reducing fat under the chin. It’s a popular choice for those who want to improve their appearance without going under the knife.
In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at how Kybella® works and how it can help you get rid of your double chin for good.
What Is Kybella®?
Kybella® is a prescription medicine injected into the fat under the chin. It’s made up of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps to break down and absorb fat. When injected into the chin area, Kybella® destroys fat cells, resulting in a slimmer, more defined jawline.
One of the benefits of Kybella® is that it’s a non-surgical treatment. This means there are no incisions or scars, and recovery time is minimal. It’s also a quick and easy procedure – most treatments take about 20-30 minutes to complete.
How Does Kybella® Work?
During a Kybella® treatment, a healthcare professional will use a fine needle to inject it into the fat under the chin. The injections are usually spaced about 1 cm apart and are administered in a grid-like pattern. The number of injections will depend on the amount of fat in the area and the desired results.
After the injections, the deoxycholic acid begins to work by breaking down the fat cells. Over time, the body naturally metabolizes and removes the destroyed fat cells, resulting in a slimmer, more defined jawline.
It’s important to note that Kybella® is not a weight loss treatment. It’s specifically designed to target and eliminate fat cells in the chin area and is more of an option for those who struggle with a double chin despite their weight loss efforts.
What to Expect During a Kybella® Treatment
Before your treatment, your healthcare professional will numb the area with a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort.
During the treatment, you may experience some swelling and redness in the injected area. These side effects are temporary and should resolve within a few days. Your treatment provider will also provide you with instructions on how to manage any side effects.
Following the right aftercare is essential to ensure the best results. This may include avoiding strenuous activity and wearing a compression garment to reduce swelling.
Is Kybella® Right for Me?
Kybella® is a safe and effective treatment for most people. However, it’s essential to consult with a qualified treatment provider to determine if it’s the right choice.
During a consultation, your provider will assess your overall health, discuss your treatment goals, and determine if Kybella® is an appropriate option. They may also recommend combining Kybella® with other treatments to help you achieve your desired results.
Kybella® is FDA approved for treating submental fullness, the medical term for excess fat under the chin. It’s an excellent choice for those who want to improve their appearance without surgery.
How Many Kybella® Treatments Will I Need?
The number of treatments you’ll need will depend on the amount of fat in the area and your desired results. Most people see significant improvement after two to four treatments, spaced about one month apart. However, some people may need additional treatments to achieve their desired results.
Kybella® is a non-surgical treatment that can help you get rid of your double chin and achieve a more defined jawline.
