If you’re bothered (unhappy, self-conscious, embarrassed) by fat under the chin, also known as submental fullness and you feel the condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are; Kybella may be the solution you are looking for. You may eat well and exercise, but the submental fullness does not go away, or it may just be a genetic characteristic. In either case, find out how Kybella can work for you. Call the office or book a consultation online.
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. We at, Image Revolution Health and Medical Spa, will tailor a package that features your desired outcome. We will work with you to determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals.
A single Kybella treatment incorporates multiple tiny injections — up to 50 shots per session. In most cases, you need two to four monthly Kybella sessions to achieve your optimal results. In clinical studies, 59% of patients received 6 treatments.
It takes your body some time to dispose of all the fat particles left behind from a Kybella service. But you should start noticing a more defined profile in as little as four to six weeks. The doctors at Image Revolution Health and Wellness generally find that you achieve more dramatic results by about the 12-week mark, depending on your level of submental fullness and how many treatments you have.
The needles used with Kybella are incredibly small and thin. While minor pinching or burning may occur, you shouldn’t have severe pain with Kybella. You can even come into Image Revolution Health and Wellness about 20-30 minutes before your scheduled appointment to apply a clinical-strength numbing solution to decrease discomfort.
Once Kybella destroys fat cells, they’re gone forever, which means the results from the injections are permanent. In the clinical trials used by the FDA, even patients who experienced weight gain after receiving Kybella didn’t see the return of their double chins. Still, you should always strive to maintain a healthy weight to maximize the results.
