Say goodbye to your double chin and hello to a more refined facial contour with this advanced injectable.
How Long Does KYBELLA Take?
This is a non-surgical injectable treatment used for reducing submental fat, more commonly known as a double chin. The duration of a treatment session can vary depending on several factors, including the extent of the submental fat and the number of injections required.
Typically, a treatment session takes around 15 to 20 minutes to complete. During the procedure, a series of small injections are administered directly into the submental fat area. The number of injections needed can vary based on individual needs and desired results.
While the treatment session itself is relatively quick, it’s important to note that this is not an instant solution. The process involves breaking down the fat cells over time, which then get naturally eliminated by the body. Multiple treatment sessions are usually recommended, spaced about four to six weeks apart, to achieve optimal results. The total treatment duration, including multiple sessions, can range from several weeks to a few months. The specific timeline will depend on the individual and their response to the treatment.
What Is KYBELLA?
This product is an FDA-approved injectable treatment used to reduce submental fat, commonly known as a double chin. It is a non-surgical alternative to more invasive procedures like liposuction. The active ingredient is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps break down and absorb dietary fat.
When injected into the submental area, the formula works by destroying the fat cells, which are then gradually eliminated by the body’s natural metabolic processes. This results in a reduction of submental fullness and a more defined chin and jawline.
The treatments are typically performed in multiple sessions, spaced several weeks apart. The exact number of sessions required can vary based on the individual’s specific needs and desired results. When you consult with one of our experts they will help to determine if this product is suitable for you and develop a personalized treatment plan targeting your aesthetic goals.
Will KYBELLA Results Look Natural?
Yes, this product is designed to provide natural-looking results. The active ingredient in the formula, deoxycholic acid, is a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps break down and absorb dietary fat. When injected into the submental fat, the product works to destroy fat cells over time. As the fat cells are eliminated, the contour of the chin and jawline can improve, leading to a more defined and balanced facial appearance. The gradual nature of the treatment allows for a natural transition and avoids an abrupt change in the overall facial profile.
Is KYBELLA Permanent?
Yes, this is considered a permanent solution for reducing submental fat, also known as a double chin. Once the fat cells under your chin are destroyed, they are unlikely to return. However, if you put on a lot of weight, you may accumulate fat on your face and on your neck, even if the area under your chin does not gain any. This is why it’s important to maintain a healthy lifestyle and manage factors that can contribute to fat accumulation to optimize and maintain the results achieved with KYBELLA.
Why Do Some People Have More Submental Fat Than Others?
The amount of submental fat, commonly known as a double chin, can vary among individuals due to several factors. Genetics plays a significant role in determining where our bodies store fat, including the submental area. Some people may have a genetic predisposition to accumulate more fat in this specific area.
Age also plays a role, as the skin and tissues in the chin area may lose elasticity and firmness over time, resulting in a more pronounced double chin. Lifestyle factors such as diet, exercise, and overall body weight can also contribute to the accumulation of submental fat. Weight gain can affect fat distribution throughout the body, including the chin area. It’s important to remember that everyone’s body is unique, and the amount of submental fat can vary accordingly.
Who Is a Good Candidate for KYBELLA?
A good candidate for this treatment is typically an adult who has submental fat or a double chin and desires a non-surgical solution to address this concern. Ideal candidates should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the potential results of the treatment.
This treatment is suitable for individuals who have moderate to severe submental fat and wish to improve the appearance of their chin and jawline. It is important for candidates to understand that the product is not intended for significant weight loss or as a treatment for loose or sagging skin.
However, the best way to determine if it is suitable for you is to consult with us. We will assess your specific concerns, evaluate your medical history, and determine if this is the right treatment option for you.
Who Is a Not Good Candidate for Treatment?
While this is a safe and effective treatment for many individuals, there are certain factors that may make someone unsuitable for the procedure. It is important to consult with a qualified healthcare professional to determine if you are a good candidate for this treatment. Generally, individuals who have infections or medical conditions in the treatment area, are pregnant or breastfeeding, have a bleeding disorder, or have had prior surgical procedures in the neck area may not be suitable candidates for this treatment.
Additionally, individuals with excessive skin laxity or unrealistic expectations may also not benefit from the treatment and may be more suitable for a different treatment path.
Is This Treatment Suitable for Men and Women?
Yes, both men and women can undergo these treatments. Submental fat, commonly known as a “double chin,” can affect individuals of any gender; so this product is approved for use in adults of all genders who wish to reduce excess fat in the submental area.
Are There Alternatives?
While this product is a popular option for reducing submental fat, it is not for everyone. However, there are other alternatives available that can also help achieve similar results. Some alternatives to KYBELLA that we offer include:
CoolSculpting, also known as cryolipolysis, is a non-invasive procedure that freezes and destroys fat cells. It can be used to target and reduce submental fat in a way that is similar to KYBELLA but without the need for injections.
Radiofrequency (RF) treatments, such as Reaction by Viora or Pellevé, use heat energy to target and tighten the skin while also reducing fat. These treatments can be effective both for addressing submental fat and improving skin laxity. These two effects can make a significant difference to the appearance of your chin and neck.
It may be that your dissatisfaction with your chin is caused more by skin laxity than it is by submental fullness. If this is the case, one of our skin-tightening treatments such as ZWave, SkinTyte by Sciton, or Plasma Pen, may be able to help the appearance of your neck and chin by tightening the skin of your face and neck.
In some cases, injectable fillers like hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers can be used to improve the appearance of the chin and jawline. While fillers do not directly remove fat, they can provide a more defined and balanced look by adding volume and contouring the area.
