Double chin removal treatment
What are Kybella injections?
Due to heavyweight gain or simply genetic predisposition, you may suffer from the presence of a double chin. According to the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS), in 2015, 67% of patients said they were bothered by their double chin. The ALLERGAN Laboratories discovered, that same year, an alternative to cosmetic surgery to solve this problem, Kybella.
Kybella is an injectable product that will dissolve fat cells in a localized area. This Lipodissolve action is made possible by deoxycholic acid, naturally present in the body, and helps to break down and absorb dietary fat.
Kybella is a simple, quick, and non-invasive treatment that has shown more than satisfactory results for the treatment of double chin.
What can I expect from a double chin fat removal treatment?
From the very first session, patients who received treatment with Kybella saw a noticeable improvement in the appearance of their chin profile. Kybella is a non-invasive, and non-surgical alternative to liposuction. The result is noticeable 4-6 weeks of first treatment. However, it might take 3-5 treatment sessions to achieve the desired result.
How long does Kybella last?
Patients who maintain a healthy lifestyle and avoid heavy weight gain can expect permanent results.
Details of the procedure at Sunny Aesthetic
First of all, we take the time to listen to you in order to fully understand the goals and needs of our patients. Then, if Kybella treatment seems to be the best solution to your problem, we will proceed with a plan.
The injections are done in the fat under the chin to target and eliminate fat cells. A skin marking grid is applied to the area to be treated. We then proceed with the injections, between 15 and 25 depending on the patient. Alternatively, we use the cannula technique to decrease the chance of bruising and swelling.
