Excess fat gets deposited around our bodies in ways that are unique to each of us. Often, the chin and jawline can be the recipients of that fat, but those areas seem to be impervious to diet and exercise.
Kybella is a form of treatment known as “injection lipolysis.” These treatments use synthetic bioidentical compounds to break down fat. Then, your body removes the fat, leaving your features looking more refined and giving you a slimmer appearance overall.
Kybella is FDA-approved for treating excess fat under the jaw, commonly known as “double chin.” It is ideal for patients who want to remove fat without undergoing more invasive procedures like liposuction. Because it only relies on injection techniques, there is no need for sedation, it is relatively pain-free, and recovery time is minimal.
Patients who respond best to injection lipolysis procedures are typically in good health and have good skin elasticity. People with poor skin tone or loose skin may not see the results they’re looking for, so Kybella may not be the best answer in those cases. However, our team offers multiple solutions for this problem and can help you find a way to treat your double chin! During your consultation, your medical aesthetic provider will discuss your goals and current medical condition with you to help determine if Kybella is right for you. We advise that you consult with your primary care physician before undergoing any elective procedure.
On the day of your treatment, your cosmetic care professional will begin by cleaning your skin and applying a local anesthetic to the targeted area.
As this takes effect, they will carefully mark out a grid pattern as a guide for the injections based on your personal treatment plan. Once we prepare your skin, our trained providers will precisely inject the Kybella compound into the fat deposits, closely following the prescribed pattern. This technique results in a balanced, even distribution of the effects and maximizes your chance for optimal results.
After your Kybella treatment is complete, you should be able to return to your routine immediately. You may experience some swelling, bruising, or redness at the injection sites. Any discomfort or pain is generally mild. Some patients feel areas of hardness, but these almost always dissipate over time.
The treated area may appear fuller in the first few weeks post-treatment. This is normal and will resolve as your body eliminates the treated fat. Many patients choose to undergo at least two treatments, spaced four to six weeks apart. Your treatment schedule will be determined during your consultation, and we always consider your lifestyle to ensure the plan works for you. Results usually become visible after about eight weeks after their final procedure. Most patients see long-lasting reductions in submental fat (provided they maintain proper diet and exercise).
We’re excited to help you explore the possibilities Kybella may hold for you.
