What Is Kybella® Treatment?
Kybella® is an injectable treatment designed to reduce submental fullness, otherwise known as a double chin. Submental fullness is a condition that affects both men and women due to genetics, weight gain, and aging, among other factors. The area of your neck directly under your chin is typically difficult to tone using diet and exercise, so some individuals seek additional assistance. These are the types of patients who are perfect for Kybella® treatment at Tru-Skin Dermatology. This injectable contains an enzyme that targets fat cells and destroys them, ultimately reducing submental fullness.
Recognizing Whether You Are A Candidate for Kybella®
Our professional dermatologists will consult with you to understand your treatment goals and individual circumstances to determine a proper course of action. For many patients with submental fullness, Kybella® is the preferred approach. It can dramatically enhance one’s facial profile under the right conditions. Ideal candidates for Kybella® treatment are those who:
- Are in good health
- Are at least 18 years of age
- Have accumulated fat deposits beneath their chins
- Have good skin elasticity
- Do not have bleeding problems or swallowing difficulties
Understanding the Kybella® Injectable Procedure
The principal ingredient in Kybella® is deoxycholic acid, which absorbs and destroys fat cells. During an initial appointment, our team will provide instructions to follow in the lead-up to your procedure. Such directives include avoiding the use of anti-inflammatory medications for five days prior to your treatment and the cessation of drinking and smoking for at least a week. Before your procedure, our doctors will mark the targeted areas so that we can maintain equal spacing and precisely inject Kybella® medication to your double chin. We will then administer Kybella® accordingly. If you need follow-up injections, we will arrange them around your schedule. Most individuals experience results after two to four treatments spaced roughly one month apart.
What to Expect Following Kybella® Injections
You may experience slight soreness throughout your chin and neck immediately following your Kybella® treatment. However, this will subside in a few days or less. Swelling may last for a couple of weeks, but you should notice a reduction in fat below your chin before long. We recommend avoiding strenuous activities and alcohol use after receiving injectables at Tru-Skin Dermatology. We will assess your submental fullness periodically to determine if you need additional injections. Kybella® causes the permanent destruction of fat cells, meaning the results should last for years. However, you should maintain a healthy lifestyle to avoid new fat deposits in your neck and jowl area.
Benefits of Opting for Kybella® Treatments
Individuals are constantly looking for ways to look and feel younger, and Kybella® treatments from Tru-Skin Dermatology can accomplish that mission. But the benefits of injectables are not limited to a reduction in submental fullness. Other advantages include:
- Minimal invasiveness
- Quick, easy procedures
- Permanent results
- Short recovery times
