One of the most flattering things of a person’s profile is having a chiseled, defined chin. If you have excess fat under your chin or a double chin, then you may feel a bit self-conscious about your profile and overall appearance. But, unless you want to undergo surgery, you may think that you are stuck with your double chin. One thing that you may not realize is that you have another option to choose from including an injection called Kybella®.
What Is Kybella®?
Kybella® is an FDA approved injectable that is designed to help destroy fat cells under the chin. Once Kybella® is injected into the fat under the chin it works to dissolve the fat and leave you with a more defined profile.
How Many Kybella® Treatments Will I need?
During your initial consultation with our staff, we will determine how many treatments you will need. Most patients receive 3 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart.
Is Kybella® Right for Me?
Typically, Kybella® is good for patients who are otherwise healthy and who:
• Are bothered by the fat under their chin
• Feel like their double chin makes them look older or heavier set than they actually are
• Don’t want to go through surgery
• Eat well and exercise a lot but can’t get rid of their double chin
How Does Kybella® Work?
The main ingredient in Kybella® is synthetic deoxycholic acid which works to naturally breakdown and absorb dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella® works to destroy the fat cells and give patients a noticeably thinner profile.
How Long Does Kybella® Last For?
One of the many benefits of Kybella®, is that because it works to actually destroy existing fat cells, results should be permanent and no further treatment may be necessary for maintenance.
Is Kybella® Expensive?
The cost of Kybella® varies from provider to provider but if you want to save money on the overall cost of Kybella® then enroll in the Allè which will allow you to earn points on each treatment and redeem them for savings on future treatments.
