Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that can minimize a double chin – resulting in a slimmer, younger and more attractive appearance.
A double chin can be extremely distressing. It may develop due to weight gain, genetics or the natural aging process. In many cases, it persists no matter how well you eat and how often you exercise.
When this occurs, Kybella can help to improve your chin profile. This non-surgical treatment is designed to destroy excess fat cells in the area, so that your body can metabolize them. Once they are cleared away, you’re left with a slender and more contoured facial appearance.
Synthetic deoxycholic acid is the active ingredient in Kybella. It is a naturally occurring molecule that helps to break down and absorb dietary fat. When it’s injected beneath the chin, it destroys unwanted fat cells.
Your Kybella injections will be done in the comfort and privacy of our medical spa. To begin, we will closely examine your double chin to confirm that the product can help you achieve your goals. We will then mark the locations of the injections and apply a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort.
From there, we will inject the Kybella beneath the surface of your skin. The number of injections will depend on your desired results.
However, most patients need between 20 and 50. The entire process will take about 20 minutes and you may feel a slight stinging sensation.
Most patients require more than one Kybella session to achieve their ideal results. We can help you determine exactly how many visits you’ll need during your initial consultation. Each session is done one month apart and you won’t receive more than six treatments.
Kybella is a groundbreaking treatment that can help you get rid of a double chin for good – without surgery. To discover what this product can do for you, please contact our Del Mar or Coronado office today and schedule a consultation.
