Many people suffer what most call a “double chin” many times being a point of self-consciousness. KYBELLA® is a new treatment for this area that has been showing great results, and is a great product to consider to get rid of unwanted “double chins”.
WHAT IS KYBELLA®?
KYBELLA® (deoxycholic acid) injection is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that is used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called, “double chin”, in patients 18 years of age or older. As a new tratment, it is not known if KYBELLA® is safe and effective outside of the submental area, or in patients under the age of 18.
WHO IS A CANDIDATE?
KYBELLA® is a safe, FDA-approved treatment. However, it is not appropriate for everyone. During a consultation, Dr. Alonso will evaluate your aesthetic needs and discuss treatment with you. If you; are pregnant, nursing or plan to become pregnant; have had or plan to have surgery on your face, neck, or chin; have had cosmetic treatments on your face, neck, or chin; have had or have medical conditions in or near the neck area; have had or have trouble swallowing; or have bleeding problems, the KYBELLA® treatment isn’t for you. However, if you don’t fit into any of those categories and are tired of your double chin, Dr. Alonso will be happy to assess if KYBELLA® is the right product for you.
You and Dr. Alonso will customize your KYBELLA® treatment regimen, including how many treatments you need, based on your desired chin profile. She may apply a local anesthetic prior to treatment to ensure patient comfort, though this is not always necessary. During each session, KYBELLA® will be administered into the fat under your chin using multiple injections. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 treatment sessions. Treatments must be no less that one month apart and some cases may take up to 6 treatments. However, once a KYBELLA® regimen is completed the cells are n longer able to store fat and it is not expected that another KYBELLA® regimen will ever be needed.
RECOVERING FROM KYBELLA® INJECTIONS
Being a minimally-invasive treatment, patients who use KYBELLA® suffer very limited recovery times after each treatment. You and Dr. Alonso will discuss what to expect immediately following your treatment, and measures you can take to ensure the fastest and most comfortable recovery period.
