Are you frustrated with the unattractive appearance of your double chin? If so, you may be interested in a nonsurgical cosmetic treatment that can help: Kybella.
A skilled aesthetician can offer this injection-based treatment for reducing a double chin and minimizing moderate to severe chin fat. Kybella is nonsurgical, and it is FDA-approved to reduce the appearance of fullness under the chin – helping you achieve a smoother, more attractive jawline.
Here’s a little bit more about how Kybella works, and where you can go in Dallas near SMU to have this revolutionary treatment.
How Does Kybella Get Rid of My Double Chin?
Kybella treatment is done in an office setting and typically takes only 30 minutes. You can stop in for treatment after work or even on your lunch hour.
During the treatment, you’ll receive multiple injections under your chin. There’s typically minimal discomfort during the procedure, and you’ll be able to drive home afterward and resume your normal activities. Most people will need between two and four treatments about a month apart for long-lasting results.
The way Kybella works is by destroying the fat cells and flushing them out of the body. This means that while results may vary from one treatment to the next, they are permanent. Once you achieve your desired chin appearance, you’ll no longer need subsequent treatments.
Kybella is an excellent alternative to liposuction, which carries greater risks of surgical complications. Because there are no incisions made during the Kybella procedure, your risk of infection and blood loss is much lower.
Risks and Side Effects of Kybella
Side effects are typically minimal following Kybella treatment. You may experience some pain, swelling, bruising, or numbness for a few days after the procedure, but these side effects usually go away on their own and don’t require any further treatment. Avoiding anti-inflammatory medications such as Motrin and Tylenol can lessen your risk of bruising after receiving Kybella; your aesthetician can recommend a pain reliever that would work and not interfere with the healing process.
Washing your face well with soap and water before the appointment can help reduce your risk of infection afterward. Reactions are rare, but some patients have reported facial muscle weakness, nerve injury to the jaw, and trouble swallowing after having Kybella. That is why it is so important to have this done at a facility which is monitored by physicians.
Results of Eliminated Chin Fat
Most people will need more than one treatment of Kybella to reach their desired results. In about 59% of cases, six treatments were needed, while many people achieved visible results in two to four treatments.
Your aesthetician can design a treatment plan that is specific to your needs. Results are typically most noticeable about 4-6 weeks following a treatment session, because it takes a while for the body to eliminate those fat cells.
