Kybella® is a nonsurgical, FDA-approved injection that is intended to reduce the appearance of submental fat below the chin, sometimes referred to as the “double chin.” Fat in this area may be difficult to reduce with simply diet and exercise alone, and it can sometimes increase with age.
Who Is A Good Candidate?
Are you struggling with subcutaneous fat beneath your chin? If so, you are among the more the nearly 70% of people who are bothered by excess chin fat. Typically an undertreated area, Kybella® is perfect for those who may get anxiety just thinking about surgery. It is a safe and effective alternative with minimal downtime and no surgery.
How Does It Work?
A series of injections below the chin, Kybella® targets fat cells directly without causing damage to any surrounding cells. Once treated, fat cells are destroyed and naturally excreted from the body. The procedure typically takes about 15 to 20 minutes, so it can easily be completed during a lunch break. The total number of injections required for full benefits is dependent upon both the amount of fat to be treated, as well as your desired results. While each treatment plan is unique, the average patient typically enjoys visible benefits following two to four treatment cycles, with each subsequent treatment recommended approximately one month later.
What Can I Expect After Treatment?
Many patients can see results between four to twelve weeks following treatment. Immediately after the procedure, some patients will experience minimal redness, numbness, and swelling at the injection site, but these side effects typically resolve quickly. With minimal downtime, patients can immediately return to their regular activities.
