Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable treatment used for reducing submental fat, often referred to as the "double chin." It contains deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. So many adults are self-conscious of this stubborn area - enter Kybella - and start looking snatched
The benefits of Kybella treatments include:
1. Non-surgical Approach: Kybella offers a non-surgical, minimally-invasive alternative to reduce the appearance of a double chin. It is an injectable treatment that does not require anesthesia or incisions.
2. Targeted Fat Reduction: Kybella is specifically formulated to address the submental fat under the chin. It works by destroying fat cells, resulting in a more contoured and defined jawline.
3. Minimal Downtime: Unlike surgical procedures, Kybella injections usually involve minimal downtime. Most people can resume their regular activities shortly after the treatment, although swelling and bruising is common.
4. Long-lasting Results: Kybella permanently destroys fat cells in the treated area. Once the desired results are achieved, further treatment is typically not required.
5. Confidence!!!: Kybella can help improve self-esteem and confidence by reducing the appearance of a double chin and enhancing the facial profile. This is an area that many people struggle with, and prior to the development of this treatment, was only really improved by surgery.
As with any medical procedure, it's important to consult with a qualified healthcare professional to determine if Kybella is suitable for you, discuss potential risks or side effects, and understand the expected outcomes based on your specific situation. On the day of the treatment, the provider will cleanse the treatment area and use markings to guide the injection process. They may also apply a topical numbing cream or use ice packs to help minimize any potential discomfort. The provider will use a very fine needle to inject the medication into the targeted areas of the submental area, and the number of injections will vary for each client. Some people report mild discomfort or a burning/stinging sensation. Following Kybella treatment, you might experience swelling, redness, bruising, or numbness in the treated area. These side effects are generally temporary and subside within a few days to a few weeks. Depending on your specific needs, multiple treatment sessions may be necessary to achieve optimal results. Generally, sessions are spaced about a month apart. As the fat cells are gradually eliminated by the body, you will notice a reduction in the appearance of submental fat, creating a slimmer profile. Visible results typically become noticeable within 4-6 weeks after each treatment session. Kybella is considered a permanent treatment, as the treated fat cells are permanently destroyed. However, maintaining a healthy lifestyle is important to prevent the accumulation of new fat cells in the future.
