What Is KYBELLA®?
While exercise can help you lose some weight around your midsection, submental fat is a whole other story. Dealing with a double chin is no easy matter, but fear not! Effective treatments do exist. KYBELLA® is an FDA-approved, submental fat reduction treatment that uses synthetic deoxycholic acid to diminish double chin size. The acid compound used in KYBELLA® injectables is made of the same naturally occurring molecules found in the human body. These molecules aid in the breakdown and absorption of fat. When injected under the chin, KYBELLA® can make a significant difference in the appearance of your profile by effectively ridding your face of submental fat.
How Does KYBELLA® Work?
KYBELLA® is an injectable treatment made up of synthetic deoxycholic acid. This specific type of acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected under the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness. Once destroyed, fat can no longer be stored or accumulated at the injection site, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired goals.
What Does KYBELLA® Treat?
A double chin occurs when the layer of fat around your neck sags and causes a wrinkle. The size of your double chin is often impacted by genetic and environmental factors. For example, hormone imbalances that lead to weight gain can combine with natural aging and cause your double chin to become larger and more noticeable. In addition, stubborn fat areas like this simply release fat more slowly than other areas because of their density. Double chin fat reduction is close to impossible through traditional means due to the fat’s troublesome location. Therefore choosing KYBELLA® for double chin reduction may be the most effective way of sculpting the profile you want.
What to Expect During Treatment
When you visit Montana Aesthetics for your submental fat reduction treatment, a member of our dedicated staff will administer the KYBELLA® treatment via multiple injections under your chin. The total number of injections will depend on your specific needs. The typical treatment time for KYBELLA® is usually about 15-20 minutes. Up to six treatments spaced at one-month intervals each have been shown to deliver the best results.*
Results From Treatment
Following your KYBELLA® treatment, you may experience some mild side effects. These include swelling, bruising, and numbness in the treatment area. These side effects typically only last for about three days. After they subside, you will see a dramatic improvement in your profile and skin tightness under your chin.* Most patients begin to see the effects of KYBELLA® after three treatment sessions, but up to six may be needed for the best results.*
