Injectable treatment for double chin fat

Deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule the body uses in metabolizing dietary fats, is the active ingredient in this groundbreaking injectable. Kybella allows you to reduce double chin fat; no surgery or liposuction is required. The deoxycholic acid is not sourced from human or animal origins.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable treatment designed to target and reduce double chin fat. Unlike traditional surgical methods, Kybella offers a non-invasive approach to contouring and refining the jawline and chin area. Crafted from deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body responsible for breaking down dietary fats, Kybella stands as an innovative alternative for those seeking to enhance their facial aesthetics without undergoing surgery.

How does Kybella work?

At its core, Kybella harnesses the fat-dissolving power of deoxycholic acid. When injected into the fatty tissues beneath the chin, Kybella’s active ingredient initiates the breakdown and absorption of these fat cells. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, leading to a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin.

The number of treatments varies based on the individual’s goals and the extent of submental fat, but most patients see visible results after two to four treatments. The beauty of Kybella lies in its dual action: not only does it eradicate existing fat cells, but it also prevents future accumulation in the treated area, delivering long-lasting results.

What can Kybella do for my look?

Kybella injections bring new hope to those tired of seeing a double chin in the mirror.

  • Specifically targets mild to significant double chin presence.
  • Minimally invasive with minimal recovery time.
  • In-clinic procedures for your convenience.
  • Personalized treatment regimen crafted for individual needs.
  • An impressive near 80% patient satisfaction quotient.

What causes a double chin?

Age, genetics, or changes in weight can lead to lingering under-chin fat and are among the most common problems women and men face. A double chin can add the appearance of age and weight to a face that should be radiating vitality. Enter Kybella, a less invasive and low-risk alternative to surgical interventions.

What is the treatment like?

Administered with finesse and precision, Kybella is injected into the submental fat pad. A meticulous series of 0.2 mL deoxycholic acid injections, spaced at one-centimeter intervals, form the core of the treatment. Typically, 12-20 injections per session are the norm, but this can vary based on individual needs. The total number of sessions hinges on the patient’s specific goals and existing fat distribution, with most patients undergoing one to three treatments spaced six weeks apart.

Walking into The Spa at Yarrow Bay for a Kybella treatment promises an experience of comfort, professionalism, and personal care. The session begins with a brief consultation, ensuring that the treatment is appropriate for you. The under-chin area to be treated is then carefully marked in a grid pattern to guide the injections.

Is it painful?

A numbing agent is often applied to ensure patient comfort during the procedure. Then, the Kybella solution is injected into the predetermined sites with a fine needle. The injection process is swift, usually lasting about 15 to 20 minutes. Some patients describe a mild warming or tingling sensation during the injections, but discomfort is typically minimal and short-lived.

The commitment of Dr. Liebertz and his team is to provide not just transformative results but also an experience marked by ease, transparency, and the highest standards of patient care. From the moment you step into our facility until you’re admiring the revitalized reflection in the mirror, our goal is to make your Kybella journey seamless and satisfying.

After your Kybella treatment

Post-procedure, it’s normal to witness minor swelling, redness, or tenderness. These symptoms usually fade within a week. While subtle improvements might be discernible after each session, the cumulative effect of Kybella gradually unveils itself over time. Depending on the individual, noticeable results may materialize after one or two sessions.

What to expect in results?

Kybella injections do not produce immediate results like liposuction, but with time, they yield profound results. With consistent treatments, patients can anticipate a visible double chin fat reduction for a more defined under-chin contour.

Does Kybella have risks?

While Kybella is largely well-tolerated, it’s essential to be aware of potential side effects. Common symptoms post-injection include swelling or redness, which are typically transient. Certain side effects like increased bruising or swelling might be more pronounced in those on blood-thinning medications.
