Does your double chin bother you every time you look into the mirror? If you want to get rid of your double chin and enhance the overall appearance of your chin and jawline, Kybella injections may be the perfect treatment for you.
What is Kybella?
Kybella is an FDA approved injectable drug specifically designed to lessen extra fat below the chin (submental fat). In this process, multiple deoxycholic acid injections are administered below the chin. This acid can be found naturally in the body. Kybella uses an artificial form of this acid. After the injection, the deoxycholic acid demolishes the walls of the fat cells. This makes them unable to hold fat and the fat melts away. The fat cells are then naturally excreted by the body.
Is Kybella Right for Me?
Kybella injections are safe only if administered by experienced healthcare professional who has been trained to perform Kybella treatments. You should avoid Kybella if you are pregnant or nursing. Our team will ask about any allergies you may have to make sure Kybella is a safe choice for you. Inform your healthcare professional if you have suffered any health issues related to the neck area as well as any procedures you may have had around the neck and jawline.
Dr. Jacobson will closely examine your chin to determine if Kybella is the right choice for you. If you have undergone any cosmetic procedures like peels, lasers or ultrasounds then you will have to schedule your Kybella injections around two weeks after said procedure.
Dr. Jacobson will mark the injection sites with a marker. Multiple injections will be needed. You will feel mild discomfort. You will be given an ice pack or topical numbing medicine to keep you comfortable. The treatment will be over in fifteen to twenty minutes. Multiple treatments are typically required.
Placing an ice pack on the treated area will reduce any discomfort. These ice packs should be placed for 20 minutes with an interval of similar duration. This should be done for a day. You will be advised against applying any force at the treatment area. Drinking plenty of fluids is advisable. You should avoid strenuous physical activity for some days after this treatment. Exposure to sun and heat should also be avoided. You will be advised to sleep on your back and keep your head in an elevated position for a few days.
Fat melting is a slow process. The results of your Kybella treatments will be visible after a month or so once the swelling has subsided. Although one treatment can provide noticeable results, you may require more than one session for complete fat removal. There should be a minimum one month gap between sessions. Once removed the fat does not return.
