PROVIDING YOUR MEDSPA NEEDS IN SAN CLEMENTE, CA
Excess fat below the chin, most often referred to as a “double chin” can be difficult to get rid of despite diet and exercise. If you’re concerned with the appearance of a double chin, Kybella® might be the treatment for you. At Seaside Skin Care in San Clemente, CA, we work with patients interested in using Kybella® to determine if it is the necessary and appropriate course of treatment. Our Medical Spa may have the solution to help you achieve the facial profile you’ve been dreaming of.
HOW DOES KYBELLA® WORK?
Kybella® is a synthetic medication that replicates the effects of a substance in your body that absorbs fat. Scientifically known as keoxycholic acid, Kybella® destroys fat cells in the areas where it is injected, decreasing the appearance of a double chin.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Our nurses will create a treatment plan based on your facial structure. At each treatment, you will be given multiple small injections under your chin. You may receive up to 6 treatment sessions, spaced at least 6-8 weeks apart. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 Kybella® treatments.
HOW LONG WILL RESULTS LAST?
When injected into fat under the chin, Kybella® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. In short, your results will last forever!
HOW MUCH DOES KYBELLA® COST?
Treatment costs depend upon how how many vials of Kybella® you will need. Our nurses will perform a facial assessment and tell you the number of vials per treatment required to achieve your desired results.
$750 per vial
$950 for Jowls
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AT MY FIRST TREATMENT?
Seaside Skin Care offers complimentary consultations to determine if you are a candidate for Kybella®. If so, our nurses will outline and explain the treatment plan specific to your facial structure. Each patient is different, so the number of injections and total number of treatments will vary. Prior to treatment, most patients use a topical numbing cream to alleviate discomfort. When the area is sufficiently numbed, our nurses will remove the numbing cream and apply a grid to the area being treated. Multiple injections are required with Kybella®. Total treatment time varies from patient to patient and can take anywhere from 20-45 minutes.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AFTER MY FIRST TREATMENT?
It is normal to experience bruising, swelling and mild discomfort following a Kybella® treatment. These issues should resolve within 72 hours. Exercise should be avoided during this time as a precautionary measure to reduce bruising and swelling. Regular daily activities can resume immediately after a Kybella® treatment.
