What is Kybella?
Kybella is a unique injectable designed to reduce submental fat, or fat under the chin. It’s made with synthetic deoxycholic acid, a molecule found in the metabolic system that is responsible for breaking down fat. When injected under the skin, it gradually breaks down fat cells to improve the contours and definition of the jawline.
Is Kybella Right for Me?
For many people, losing fat under the chin is extremely difficult – and many don’t see results even with strict diet and exercise. That’s because submental fat can simply be genetic. Although liposuction has traditionally been the treatment of choice for a double chin, it’s normal to want to avoid surgery. Kybella is an excellent, low-cost way to improve your facial profile without downtime or incisions. With Kybella, our team can help you achieve a more defined look using our best treatment options.
What are the Benefits of Kybella?
- Long- term results
- No incisions or downtime
- Quick and easy treatment sessions
What Happens During Kybella Treatment?
Kybella can be administered right in our Kalamazoo office. To begin, we’ll discuss your goals and create a customized treatment plan so you know what to expect. Kybella is best performed using a topical anesthetic so you’re comfortable and relaxed. Once you’re ready, the product is injected using a grid pattern underneath the chin for better distribution. After the injection process is complete, you can return home.
After Kybella, it’s normal to experience some swelling and redness under the chin for a few days, and you can manage this with ice packs and over-the-counter medications. Most patients undergo a series of treatments every few months to compound their results, although this depends on the amount of fat present and your goals. You’ll begin to see a reduction in fat after the first or second treatment session. After completing your treatment package, you’ll see a more defined jawline for the long term. To maintain best results, make sure to live an active and healthy lifestyle to prevent weight gain. As always, our team is here to help you reach your cosmetic goals with our best non-surgical options.
