It’s time to talk about Kybella, the chin fat melting treatment!
Kybella has worked beautifully for countless people whose chin fat was unresponsive to diet and exercise alone. It’s very popular even with patients who otherwise might not try cosmetic treatments because of the noticeable results, lack of downtime, and minimal risk.
A lot of patients who come in for an initial consultation with us still have some misconceptions, though. Here are 10 things you may not have known about Kybella:
1. There’s No Surgery Involved
Previous generations had to get surgery to treat their double chins. Luckily for you, you live in today’s world. We can treat your chin fat with a simple nonsurgical injection of Kybella.
Kybella chin treatments are done as a series of injections tailored to your chin profile and goals. The treatment should be very easy with no downtime needed.
2. Kybella is Made From Ingredients Your Body Makes Naturally
The main ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a substance your body produces on its own. Its main role in your body is to break down and absorb dietary fat.
With a Kybella chin fat treatment, the extra dose of deoxycholic acid added to the treatment area helps destroy stubborn fat cells where you don’t want them.
3. It Destroys Fat Cells Instead of Shrinking Them
Normally when you lose weight, your fat cells shrink instead of disappearing. With Kybella, though, you can actually get rid of those fat cells once and for all. That’s one of the reasons why this treatment is so effective!
Afterward, you will have fewer fat cells beneath your chin, which will make it that much harder to regain your previous fullness.
4. It’s a Lunchtime Procedure
No need to rearrange your life around your Kybella appointment. The Kybella injection only takes about 15 minutes, meaning you might be able to get it done on your lunch break.
After your appointment is over, you can easily get on with your day. You can expect swelling for the first 3-5 days after your first treatment, but this reaction usually becomes less severe with subsequent treatment sessions.
5. Your Results Can Be Permanent
Once Kybella destroys fat cells, they’re gone. All the same, your lifestyle and in some cases medical conditions can still cause future changes to your appearance.
If you maintain a healthy lifestyle, moderate exercise, and a nutritious diet, you should see your results last for years and years to come.
6. The FDA Approves
Kybella is the first FDA-approved injectable treatment for chin fat. It’s been tried and tested by countless people, and it’s known to be very safe. You don’t need to worry about the ingredients or the long-term effects.
7. You’re Probably a Candidate
If you’re reading this article, you’re probably at least a little bothered by the fat beneath your chin. That’s the main requirement to be a Kybella candidate – there aren’t many conditions that contraindicate this treatment!
That said, Kybella is usually not recommended for patients who are pregnant or nursing, have trouble swallowing, have a history of facial surgery, or have a medical condition involving the submental area.
8. You May Need Multiple Kybella Treatments
While you will likely see some results from your first Kybella treatment, most patients need several treatments to see their desired results. Fat breaks down slowly, and it may take a series of injections spread out over months to keep the fat cells breaking down.
The number of treatments varies from person to person. For most people, we do 3-5 treatments about a month apart. If you are patient, you can eventually see the change you want.
9. The Results from Kybella Can Be Amazing
