Many people feel self-conscious about their double chin, as it never seems to go away regardless of how well you eat or how much you exercise. Thankfully, you no longer have to suffer if you feel embarrassed thanks to Kybella!
Say goodbye to your unwanted double chin! KYBELLA™ is the first and only FDA-approved injectable drug that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness to help eliminate your double chin. The injections mimic the fat-absorption process that your body naturally produces. It is composed of a man-made form of deoxycholic acid to help destroy the fat that contributes to your double chin.
In order to maximize results, multiple treatment sessions are typically required. The maximum number of treatments for Kybella is six, and it is recommended that you wait at least one month between treatments in order to see maximum results.
Each session takes 15-20 minutes and our team will determine where the injection sites will be for each session. You can expect to notice a difference after 12 weeks or two treatment sessions.
Benefits of Kybella
The injections are FDA-approved, and there is no anesthesia or surgery required for those getting the treatment. You also won’t have to worry about the fat cells coming back in the future, as they are eliminated for good! The treatment itself is fast and it delivers efficient results. While double chins are perfectly normal and cause no physical harm to your body, they may decrease your self-esteem.
After your Kybella treatment, it is typical to experience swelling, bruising or numbness in the injection area. In order to help minimize swelling and other side effects, you can use ice packs after your treatment followed by applying warm compresses during the following days after your treatment. You can also try to firmly massage the area as tolerated and wear a chin strap to add compression.
