What is Kybella-A Brief Overview?
Kybella is a non-surgical Injectable cosmetic grade treatment specifically designed to destroy the fat cells under the chin. Our providers use a series of deoxycholic acid injections to target the excess fat around your chin. Kybella is a great non-surgical procedure that does not require incision and offers minimal downtime.
This FDA-approved procedure uses deoxycholic acid, which helps to absorb fat. When deoxycholic acid is injected into your skin, it destroys the fat cells beneath your chin area so it can't store any more fat then it naturally metabolizes itself out the body. An ice pack and topical numbing agent is used to ease discomfort during the procedure.
If you are above 18 years and not allergic to any ingredient used in the Kybella procedure, you can undergo this procedure to get rid of a double chin. Our practitioners may ask if you had any prior treatments around your neck, face, or chin so that they can decide whether the procedure is beneficial for you.
A consultation is always required to see if you are a candidate for this treatment because there has to be enough fat in the area. This procedure requires a series of sessions in order to achieve the best results and it is essential that you go with the provider's recommendation in order to achieve these results. It can take up to 4-6 months to see the visible results of Kybella. Kybella offers long-lasting results by destroying the fat cells around your chin and can be used in other areas where fat is present as long as it is approved by the provider.
Is It Safe to Undergo Kybella or Not?
Yes, it is safe to undergo Kybella because it is FDA approved and studies have been done showing that this treatment does work if done correctly and if you are a candidate for the treatment. Unlike other non-surgical medical procedures, Kybella also has some common side effects, including;
