Kybella is a revolutionary injectable that can transform a person's profile, creating a more youthful lower face appearance. Our aesthetic professionals at The Bloom Medical Spa may recommend it to those who are looking to eliminate unwanted fat underneath their chin. Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable that shapes and defines the chin area to improve the appearance of the “double chin” effect. It contains the active ingredient deoxycholic acid, which is naturally occurring in the body for the breakdown and absorption of dietary fats. When injected into fat cells beneath the chin, Kybella destroys the cells, rendering them unable to accumulate or store fat any longer. Our Certified Nurse Injector, Carolyn Craft, will work with each patient in deciding how many treatments are necessary to meet your needs and cosmetic goals. Patients can call our Dallas, TX office today to learn more about Kybella and how it can help them achieve the slim look they desire.
Ideal candidates are almost anyone who have concentrated fat underneath their chin or upper neck area. According to clinical surveys, 8 out of 10 people with a “double chin” feel self-conscious about their facial appearance and profile. The fat cells that accumulate in the chin and neck areas are not usually affected by improvements in diet and exercise. As the skin loses its elasticity and firmness with age, this fat content becomes more noticeable. Many individuals wishing they could do something to improve the look of their chin and neck are often hesitant to put themselves through a surgical, invasive procedure. With Kybella, these patients now have the opportunity to improve their appearance without surgery and with little to no recovery time.
What To Expect
The number of treatment sessions needed will depend on the desired results, as well as the specific needs and goals of each individual patient. 12 – 20 separate injections are typical in the average treatment course in order to obtain the patient’s desired end result. These injections are typically delivered over a span of 2 – 3 separate office visits, with each visit at a 1 month interval. Those patients with an extreme amount of fat stored in the chin area may require as many as 50 injections with office visits scheduled every few months. Treatment sessions generally take around 15 minutes, and results are visible after only a few treatment sessions.
The great benefit of undergoing Kybella injections is the natural-looking results it yields without having to undergo invasive surgery. Once your treatment session is complete, you will be free to return to your daily activities. However, it's important to adhere to any post-treatment care provided by your certified injector. Although the end result relies on the number of treatments each patient recieves, ultimately, the chin will overall be slimmer, which will produce a beautiful neckline and chin contour.
