What Is Kybella?
Kybella is an injectable treatment to remove unwanted fat from the lower face. It is best for removing stubborn fat that does not go away with diet and exercise. The active ingredient in the injectable solution is a synthetic form of an acid that is naturally found in the body called deoxycholic acid. Using the injectable treatment, we can slim the face by metabolizing unwanted fat. The results are comparable to liposuction but will not require you undergo surgical procedures with significant downtime.
Who Is an Ideal Treatment Candidate?
This treatment is designed for patients at least 18 years of age. Men and women of all skin types can benefit from treatment, but it is not meant to be a significant weight loss solution. The treatment is only applied to the lower face to remove stubborn fat and is most beneficial to patients who are already at a healthy weight and live a healthy and active lifestyle.
Will I Improve My Double Chin?
Kybella is the ideal solution to submental fat on the chin, jowls, and neck that cause a double chin. Even at healthy weights, a double chin can make you appear to be heavier than you are and unhealthy. We can improve your appearance with this injectable treatment. The treatment results in a slim and defined jawline.
Before this injectable treatment, liposuction or surgery would often be the best solution for removing submental fat. With this treatment, you get similar results without the risks and recovery time involved in liposuction or lower facelift surgery. The results are not immediate, so the submental fat loss appears to be natural. The injectable treatment is tailored to your needs, and we can increase the number of injection sessions to provide the desired results.
Will I Feel Pain During Treatment?
This injectable treatment is safe and approved by the FDA to remove cosmetic submental fat. The injection is not painful, but some patients will feel numbness during the injection. The treatment is safer than surgical facelifts or liposuction and will not require recovery or hospitalization. Patients may return to work or their normal routine immediately without special considerations after the treatment session is completed in our Little Rock Med Spa.
How Long Will the Treatment Take?
A single injection session can take between 15 and 20 minutes, depending on the amount of fat being removed. Many patients can complete their session during a lunch break or any spare time throughout the day.
Most patients will need more than one session to achieve their desired results and each injection session will be spaced one month apart. The number of sessions needed can be determined during your initial consultation and will not exceed six injection sessions. In clinical trials, only 59% of patients required all six sessions.
Who Is Treatment Not Right for?
While the injection is a safe solution to remove double chin for most patients, it is not recommended for certain patients. Before the treatment, your doctor will evaluate your medical records and health to ensure your safety.
A doctor may recommend a different treatment for any of the following:
- Patients who are pregnant, nursing, or may become pregnant
- Patients on blood thinners
- Patients with excessive bleeding or a blood disorder
- Patients who have experienced trouble swallowing
- Patients with a medical condition affecting the neck or chin area
- Patients with an active infection near the treatment area
- Patients who have had surgery or other treatments in the neck or chin area
What Will I Need to Do After Treatment?
Unlike surgery or liposuction, this injection does not require many considerations after treatment. The treatment is safe enough for most people to return to their normal routines without changes. Retouches are not needed after the treatment is completed, and the results are long-lasting. Patients are encouraged to continue a healthy lifestyle with diet and exercise to avoid future development of unwanted fat.
What Are the Benefits of Treatment?
Kybella can contour your jawline, giving you a slim appearance and a more defined face. Many patients look like they have lost weight because of the previously heavy appearance of their double chin. The treatment can improve your self-image and confidence. Patients can remove unwanted submental fat and have the appearance they desire in quick, 15 to 20-minute appointments within six months. In clinical studies of 1600 participants, more than 80% of patients were satisfied with the results of the treatment.
