The Injectable Solution to Submental Fullness

Kybella is a revolutionary injectable solution designed to target and reduce submental fullness, commonly called a double chin. This injectable is made of a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps break down fat. When injected into the submental area, Kybella destroys fat cells, resulting in a more defined jawline and neck. With minimal downtime and visible results after just a few treatments, Kybella is an effective option for those seeking a more contoured facial profile.

Kybella Treats:

  • Submental fullness or a double chin
  • Excess fat in the neck area
  • Lack of definition in the jawline
  • Uneven distribution of fat under the chin
  • Residual fat pockets after weight loss

How Kybella Works

Kybella works by utilizing deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps break down and absorb dietary fat. When Kybella is injected into the submental area, it causes the destruction of targeted fat cells by disrupting their cell membranes. Once destroyed, these fat cells are eliminated through the body’s natural metabolic processes, resulting in a more contoured and defined facial profile. Because Kybella is a minimally invasive treatment, patients can expect little to no downtime.

The Non-Surgical Alternative To Liposuction

Until recently, individuals struggling to eliminate a double chin only had one viable option — liposuction. That’s no longer the case. Kybella is a non-surgical alternative to liposuction that targets unwanted fat in the submental area. Unlike liposuction, which requires invasive surgery and general anesthesia, Kybella uses injections to destroy targeted fat cells. With Kybella, you can achieve a more defined jawline without surgery, anesthesia, or downtime.

Benefits of Kybella:

  • Minimally invasive treatment without surgery
  • No downtime, allowing for a quick return to normal activities
  • Customizable treatment plans based on individual needs
  • Effective and long-lasting results after just a few treatments
  • Treatment of small or large areas of submental fat
  • Safe and FDA-approved treatment with minimal risk of side effects
  • Improved facial profile and overall appearance

Your Kybella Experience

During your Kybella session, a trained healthcare professional will administer a series of injections into the targeted submental area using a fine needle. The number of injections required will depend on the size and shape of the treatment area and the desired results. The session typically takes 20 to 30 minutes to complete.

After the session, it is common to experience some side effects, such as redness, swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort. These side effects are usually temporary and subside within a few days to a week. The recovery process is relatively quick, and most patients can return to normal activities immediately after the procedure.

The results from Kybella appear gradually over several weeks to months, as the body naturally eliminates the destroyed fat cells. Depending on your goals and the extent of submental fullness, multiple sessions may be necessary to achieve optimal results. The results of Kybella are long-lasting, as the destroyed fat cells are eliminated permanently.

The Importance Of Maintaining A Healthy Lifestyle

Kybella permanently destroys targeted fat cells by disrupting their cell membranes, making it impossible for them to store fat again. As a result, the results of Kybella are considered permanent. However, it is essential to maintain a healthy lifestyle to prevent the existing fat cells in the treated area from expanding. A balanced diet and regular exercise can help maintain the results of Kybella and improve overall health and well-being.
