Goodbye Double Chin
Kybella is the first FDA approved, a nonsurgical injection used to destroy fat cells in the face, neck, and chin. This treatment is made with a formulation of deoxycholic acid, this naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown of fat. When injected into the treatment area, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells!
How does Kybella work?
When the targeted cells are destroyed by Kybella, they can no longer store or accumulate fat. The best part is that clinical studies discovered Kybella to be the only FDA approved injectable to produce permanent results. Where traditional weight loss has failed you, Kybella can provide another option to reach your goals and lose that fat the gym hasn’t. There’s a reason this is everyone’s favorite fat busting injection.
Where can I inject Kybella?
Kybella was originally created to target submental fullness, sometimes called double chin. This is a common, yet undertreated facial aesthetic condition. It can detract from an otherwise balanced and harmonious facial appearance- leading to an older and heavier look.
Kybella can help, and has proved useful in countless other areas! From your double chin to your knees, Kybella can treat almost any area! See more about Body Contouring here.
How many treatments are needed?
Kybella is a gradual treatment and you will not see your results immediately. This means that usually 2-4 treatments of Kybella spaced 1 month apart will provide optimal results, so the full treatment can take anywhere from 2-4 months! Treatment can consist of 1 or 2 vials, depending on the severity of the area and desired results. It’s best to discuss your concerns with a Master Provider to determine how many treatments you’ll need to achieve your goals.
Are there any side effects?
The most common side effects of kybella include minor swelling. But, a scarf will be your best friend while you are hiding the swelling for 2-3 weeks following your treatment. For permanent fat reduction, a bit of swelling is worth it. You can learn about all of the side effects here.
Can Kybella help me lose weight?
This is not a weight loss procedure but instead is used for targeted fat reduction. Kybella cannot help you with a six-pack or those extra 20 pounds, but it CAN help you with moderate to severe fat reduction in the chin, neck, jowels, face, arms, bra fat, or back!
How long does the procedure take? And is it painful?
Kybella is an extremely easy treatment that can be done in about 30 minutes on your way home after work or on your lunch break! There is no numbing involved with Kybella because it’s not necessary! The injection is very quick, with discomfort being reported to last for only around five minutes post-treatment. Most of your time spent in the office will be explaining the treatment and preparing you for the injection, then waiting for the discomfort to subside! After your appointment, you get your very own Juvly ice pack to take with you and can go straight to your plans.
