Kybella is the first and only FDA approved fat reduction injection specially designed to “melt away fat” under the chin. The dreaded, unsightly double chin can make you look heavier and older than you really are. Fortunately, this state-of-the-art injectable, Kybella offers a way to safely and effectively obtain a youthful jawline and defined chin without the need for surgery. Kybella is a synthetic form of a naturally occurring molecule found in stomach acid required for our bodies to emulsify and metabolize fat. When you inject Kybella into the submental fat, it disrupts cell membranes and destroys the fat cells in that tissue FOREVER. The dead fat cells are then processed through the body and naturally flushed out.
One of the added benefits of Kybella is that the skin tends to “lift” or tighten as healing occurs. This eliminates the appearance of sagging, from the once fat filled, skin. For the patient, treatment with Kybella not only reduces the fat accumulated in these areas, but also mitigates the appearance of sagging skin, which adds to the overall benefit of the treatment.
Kybella begins to work immediately after injected and results are permanent since the fat cells in the area are destroyed. Some patients will require several Kybella treatment sessions, while others only need one; the amount is dependent on your desired results.
Each Kybella treatment can consist of up to 50 small injections to the treatment area to ensure even distribution of the fat-burning solution.
Discomfort during the Kybella treatment is minimized by using topical anesthetic and/or ice. Most patients report a warm, burning sensation in the treatment area confirming the fat-destroying process. This warm feeling typically dissipates in 10- 20 minutes, followed by an anticipated swelling in the area. The swelling gradually subsides over the next 1-3 weeks.
Kybella is a safe treatment to eliminate stubborn fat in specific treatment areas but it is not intended for weight loss or bulk fat reduction. In addition to treating submental fat with Kybella, our nurse injector is skilled in injection techniques to treat other areas such as jowls and bra fat.
