Say Goodbye to Your Double Chin With Kybella!

Do you daydream about a defined jawline and a smoother neck contour? Kybella may be the ideal treatment for you. A few quick, painless injections can help you get rid of your double chin, a flaw in your neck contour technically known as submental fullness. Read on to find out how this non-surgical solution can turn your dream into a reality.  

What Is Kybella, and How Does It Work?

Kybella injections act on fat deposits. This FDA-cleared, first-of-its-kind prescription medication has the active ingredient deoxycholic acid, a natural acid your body uses to dissolve and absorb dietary fat. This acid destroys fat cells, so when injected into your neck area, it can gradually get rid of your double chin.

How Many Kybella Injections Do I Need?

In some cases, you may notice an improvement after a single appointment. However, you might need more treatment sessions spaced out in one-month intervals to obtain your desired results. We will customize an effective treatment plan for you after evaluating the amount of skin laxity and submental fat you have.

Kybella treatments only take about 15 to 30 minutes, so you can schedule your appointment on your lunch break and return to work immediately afterward.

Benefits of Kybella

Kybella injections are gaining increased popularity among patients with localized cosmetic concerns due to their many advantages, including:

  • Convenience: We affectionately call Kybella a “lunchtime treatment.” We’ll have you in and out of our comfortable office in 30 minutes or less, after which you’re free to resume your usual daily schedule.
  • Minimally invasive: Forget about incisions, stitches, and scars. This treatment option is gentler than other alternatives to treat your double chin, like liposuction or a facelift, and it doesn’t require downtime.
  • Safe procedure: Kybella is an FDA-approved cosmetic treatment, which means it is safe and effective when applied for its intended use. In the hands of an experienced provider, Kybella is a low-risk product that won’t adversely affect your overall health.
  • Gradual changes: Unlike surgical procedures, which have an immediate and noticeable effect in the treated areas, Kybella works to eliminate a double chin over time. This slower timeline slims your submental fullness gradually, getting more natural facial changes. 
  • Permanent results: The fat cells destroyed with deoxycholic acid won’t grow again, which means the results you obtain with Kybella are permanent. However, it is essential to lead a healthy lifestyle to maintain your new look. Surviving fat cells can expand in volume if your body accumulates fat tissue again.
  • Tightens your skin: As Kybella has a gradual effect on your neck contours, your skin has time to adapt to these changes. The acid injected also stimulates collagen remodeling, which helps your skin become tighter and firmer over time.
