What is KYBELLA™?
KYBELLA™ is a revolutionary new cosmetic injectable designed to help reduce pockets of fatty tissue on the chin, improving the appearance of what many people call a “double chin.” This non-surgical, FDA-approved treatment can help enhance jawline and facial contour with minimal downtime and long-lasting results. Many individuals struggle to address a double chin through diet and exercise, and this common concern can develop in people of all shapes, sizes, ages, and fitness levels. If traditional weight loss methods are having a limited effect, we can help you achieve your goals. Talk to our team today to see if KYBELLA® may be right for you.
How KYBELLA™ Works
An innovative injectable, KYBELLA™ is made of a substance called deoxycholic acid, which can be found naturally occurring within our own bodies. This substance can be used to break down fatty tissue, which can then be metabolized and removed from the system. Since KYBELLA™ works with your body’s natural processes, the effects should develop gradually with natural-looking results. Only physicians with extensive training in this procedure should provide KYBELLA™ treatment, and our skilled medical team can provide an exceptional experience for many patients looking for a non-surgical solution to chin and neck fat.
Benefits of KYBELLA™
As well as being a minimally invasive procedure, KYBELLA™ also offers several additional benefits, including:
- Brief treatment time
- Minimal downtime
- Long-lasting results
- No incisions or sutures needed
- Gradual, natural-looking effects
While KYBELLA™ can be a great choice for many individuals, it’s not right for everyone. We will perform a thorough evaluation of your needs, goals, and medical history to determine if this or another technique can optimize your outcome. We encourage you to ask questions and discuss any concerns during your initial consultation, as we consider health, wellness, and beauty treatment planning to be a collaborative experience.
KYBELLA™ Treatment Process
Once we have developed a customized treatment plan for you, our physician will identify the ideal location to administer KYBELLA™. In a series of injections, KYBELLA™ will be delivered into the affected area, on and around the chin, to begin the process. This process typically takes between 15 and 30 minutes to complete. Once finished, you can return home, where you will likely wish to rest for a day or two. Some patients achieve the desired outcome after a single treatment, while others may need a second one. We will let you know what to expect during your first meeting.
KYBELLA™ Recovery Process
Downtime with KYBELLA™ is designed to be much shorter than with surgery. That said, you will probably still want to take some time to rest and recover. Most patients return to normal activities after a day or two, and you should listen to your body to determine when you feel comfortable going back to work or your regular schedule. Swelling, tenderness, and bruising in the treated area is normal, and these effects can take up to a week or more to fade. You should begin to see the benefits of the procedure after several weeks, and they should continue to develop over the next few months.
