Destroy the Double Chin With Kybella®
Are you ready for a smoother neckline? Kybella is a FDA-approved treatment for moderate to severe submental fat under the chin that offers permanent results!
When injected into the skin, Kybella destroys unwanted fat cells. The fat cells are then permanently eliminated from the body, and only healthy cells remain. The results speak for themselves.
What is Kybella®?
Kybella is a prescription medicine used to improve the appearance and profile of submental fat in adults commonly known as the double chin.
It is not for use outside of the submental area or for children younger than 18.
How does Kybella® work?
The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring bile acid in your body that emulsifies and makes dietary fats soluble in the intestine.
When Kybella is injected under your chin, it breaks down the fat cells. Once those cells are destroyed, they cannot store or accumulate fat.
What to Expect
Before starting treatment, your DermaTouch RN Kybella-trained healthcare specialist will examine the area under and around your chin to determine if Kybella will work for you. Then, we will tailor your treatment to the amount of fat under the chin and your aesthetic goals. During each session, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile. Normally the injection process takes around 15 to 20 minutes.
Will I experience any side effects?
The safety profile Of Kybella Is well known. Rare side effects include swelling, bruising, numbness or redness. Kybella may cause some serious side effects, including difficulty swallowing and nerve injury to the jaw. Your DermaTouch RN physician or licensed aesthetic nurse will perform a risk-analysis evaluation to determine whether you are a suitable candidate for Kybella and provide medical advice about possible side effects.
How many treatments will I need?
We will determine how many treatments you need based on the chin profile you desire. Your DermaTouch RN physician will administer a series of injections at each treatment session. Spaced a month or more apart, many patients see contouring of their chin profile in 2 to 4 treatment sessions. Up to 6 treatments may be administered.
How long will the results last?
Because the fat cells under your chin are destroyed permanently by your Kybella injections, after the aesthetic goal is achieved, it is not expected that retreatment will be needed.
Is Kybella® for Me?
Are you unhappy with the fat under your chin because it makes you feel older, heavier or self-conscious? If you maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen, but your submental fullness does not go away, then Kybella may be the solution you are looking for.
