Kybella®

Double chin be gone!

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. Kybella® is a new injectable approved by the FDA for the treatment of moderate to severe fat under the chin. Until now the only option for fat removal under the chin was liposuction or surgically removing the fat by cutting it out.

After receiving a sequence of Kybella® treatments, patients can see a significant reduction of their neck fat – without cutting, without sucking fat away, and without surgery!

What is Kybella®?

Kybella® is a manufactured form of Deoxycholic acid, which is naturally produced in our bodies. Naturally producing Deoxycholic acid helps the body absorb fat cells. When injected into tissue, the Kybella® injectable physically destroys the cell membrane. When properly injected into submental fat under the chin, Kybella® destroys fat cells getting rid of double chin fat.

FAQ

Questions about Kybella? Check out our list of Frequently Asked Questions Below.

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.

What should I expect during 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.

How long with 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!

What should I expect after my 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.
