Kybella - You invest in yourself, now invest in your profile.
Double chin is a common yet under treated facial aesthetic condition that can impact a broad range of adults, including both women and men. Whether your double chin is a result of genetics, aging or weight gain, Kybella can help. If you’re interested in a nonsurgical way to reduce submental fullness, also known as double chin, Kybella may be right for you. Kybella is a first-of-its-kind injectable treatment for adults with submental fullness that destroys fat cells under the chin to improve your profile.
How Does Kybella work?
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
What can I expect during my Kybella treatment?
- Everyone's chin profile is different. At Cosmetic Laser Center your treatment is customized to meet your specific needs. Before starting treatment, our expert injector will examine the area under and around your chin to determine if Kybella is right for you. Then, we will tailor your treatment to the amount of fat under the chin and your aesthetic goals.
- Kybella is administered as a series of injections to the treatment area under the chin, destroying fat cells and producing gradual results.
- Treatment can only be administered by a Kybella-trained specialist. At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile.
Other common questions about Kybella:
Q. Am I a good candidate for Kybella?
You don’t have to be overweight to have fullness under your chin. And sometimes, no matter how much you exercise or diet, the condition may not go away. If you eat well and exercise, but submental fullness does not go away, Kybella may be right for you. Especially if you’re bothered (unhappy, self-conscious, embarrassed) by fat under the chin, or f you feel the condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are.
Q. What is the average treatment cost for Kybella?
Kybella treatment cost is hard to estimate until you attend your first consultation. The dosage and extent of treatment will vary from one individual to another. Your cost not only includes the price of the product, but more importantly, the skill and expertise of the aesthetic professional who is administering your treatment. At Cosmetic Laser Center, our licensed and trained injectors have experience treating patients with Kybella. It is important to find an experienced specialist who will take the time to understand your treatment goals and develop a treatment plan that is right for you.
Q. When will I see results?
It usually takes about three to four weeks and up to eight weeks to see results. When injected into fat under the chin, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After reaching your desired aesthetic, further treatment is not expected.
