Is your double chin preventing you from achieving the attractive facial definition you desire?
Men and women who suffer from moderate to severe submental fat may find it difficult to improve their profile through diet and exercise alone. KYBELLA® is a quick and safe injection designed to eliminate fatty accumulations below the chin for a slimmer facial appearance. This is beneficial for patients who developed a double chin after weight gain and those who are genetically predisposed to submental fat.
What Is KYBELLA®?
KYBELLA® is an injectable treatment composed of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule. This non-human and non-animal formulation aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.
When KYBELLA® is injected into subcutaneous fat, it destroys fat cells in the area. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
Once you have completed your KYBELLA® treatment series, retreatment is not expected, and, therefore, results are considered permanent.
Why Should I Choose KYBELLA® for My Double Chin?
KYBELLA® provides significant benefits for patients struggling with submental fat (double chin).
- Eliminates the appearance of a double chin
- Offers a quick and effective treatment
- Requires zero recovery period
- Achieves a more pleasing profile
- Restores confidence
- Does not need incisions or surgery
Am I a Good Candidate for KYBELLA® Treatments?
KYBELLA® is intended for patients with excess fat accumulation beneath their chin. Patients with an infection in the treatment area shouldn’t receive KYBELLA® until after the condition has subsided.
How Is KYBELLA® Performed?
KYBELLA® is injected into the areas of excess fat beneath the chin. The deoxycholic acid works to destroy fat cells while preventing future fat storage or accumulation.
KYBELLA® is administered during an in-office session that lasts between 15 and 20 minutes.
Repeat treatments may be necessary to achieve your ideal results. Most patients undergo a series of four to six treatment sessions; however, this may vary depending on your needs.
What Can I Expect After My KYBELLA® Injections?
How Long Until I Can Resume My Regular Activities After KYBELLA®?
One benefit of KYBELLA® is that there is no recovery period. Most patients can immediately resume their regular activities, including makeup application, following their treatment.
What Are the Possible Side Effects of KYBELLA®?
The most common side effects of KYBELLA® include swelling, bruising, numbness, and redness. While rare, more serious side effects can occur that include trouble swallowing and nerve injury.
Contact Dr. Koch if any of these side effects persist.
How Long Will My KYBELLA® Results Last?
Once you have achieved your desired aesthetic, your final results should be long lasting, if not permanent. The deoxycholic acid in KYBELLA® helps prevent new fat cells from forming.
To lower your risk of a negative reaction, discuss previous cosmetic treatments on your face with your doctor.
