Kybella The Magic Double Chin Remover

Updated: Mar 7

Kybella® is the only nonsurgical FDA-approved cosmetic injectable treatment that can destroy fat cells in a treatment area. Known as injection lipolysis, it is becoming more popular and recognized as both a safe and effective solution for those looking to improve their facial profile and body contour without going under the knife.


At Enrichment Skin Solutions, our regenerative clinic offers comprehensive and customized aesthetic treatments like Microneedling, Hydrafacials and Hydradermabrasion, and Kybella® treatment. Michael Johnson has over 25 years of medical experience helping patients on their aesthetic journey.



How Does Kybella® Work?

The main ingredient found in Kybella® is a naturally occurring substance known as deoxycholic acid which naturally exists in our bodies. It helps your body to break down and absorb fat. When Kybella® destroys fat cells, it also helps disrupt fat cell membranes while causing them to rupture. They are naturally eliminated by the body through the natural metabolic process. This means that it makes it harder for fat cells to grow there later.

After this treatment, patients will notice younger-looking contours and less fat in the injectable treatment areas. The amount of time it takes to see results will depend on the amount of Kybella® used, the amount of existing fat, and the patient’s overall goals for treatment.


What is Kybella® Used For?

Kybella® is a prescription medicine used in adults 18 years or older to help improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat found below the chin, known as submental fat. This fat creates the appearance of a double chin.


The Kybella® Process

There are many steps to getting Kybella® with a professional:


Consultation

First, you will have a consultation where your specific concerns and goals will be discussed. We can evaluate your skin type and any conditions you may have. A medical history will be discussed including any medications you’re taking and any known allergies.

All of this information helps to ensure that you’re a good candidate for Kybella® and to create an effective personalized treatment plan. Any risks or side effects that may occur as a result of this treatment will be discussed. This helps patients to make an informed decision about the treatments they’re choosing.


Treatment Plan

A treatment plan will outline the best route to help you achieve your goals. This may include different treatments and their frequency and duration. During this time, any questions you have about the procedure can be answered. Your expectations for before and after the treatment will be discussed too.


Injections

During your treatment session, the Kybella® solution is injected directly into the fat with a fine needle. The entire procedure takes just 20 minutes and there is no downtime. Many patients do this on their lunch breaks.


Recovery

After the procedure, you may experience some mild discomfort, swelling, or redness. These are normal side effects and should subside within 1-2 days.


Benefits of Kybella®

There are many benefits to getting Kybella®, including:

  • Nonsurgical Treatment: Getting Kybella® eliminates the need for more invasive procedures such as liposuction.

  • Little to No Downtime: Most patients immediately return to their normal activities.

  • Long-Lasting: The results of Kybella® can be permanent with healthy lifestyle changes.

  • Natural-Looking Results: Because it is a gradual fat reduction over time, it looks natural.


Are You a Good Candidate For Kybella®?

Kybella® is a great option for someone who is experiencing self-esteem issues due to the appearance of a double chin. This person isn’t interested in surgery. To be a good candidate for Kybella®, you must meet the following requirements:

  • Be in good health with a healthy diet and exercise

  • Have had no surgery in the treatment area

  • Have firm, elastic skin with no excess skin at all

  • Moderate submental fullness-not severe.

People who have Lupus, circulation problems, uncontrolled Diabetes, clotting disorders, are pregnant or who take certain over-the-counter or prescription medicines may not be a good candidate. This can be determined during a consultation at a medical spa.


When Can I Expect To See Results?

Usually, patients will see results after two treatments. You can, if needed, safely have up to six treatments given one month apart. The number of treatments you receive is based on how much existing submental fat you have and your goals for treatment. Over time, your body will naturally process the destroyed fat cells and a more defined and contoured look will be revealed.


Frequently-Asked Questions About Kybella®

Here are some FAQs about the treatments. During a free consultation, any questions can be discussed fully to help you make the best decision for your goals.

What is Submental Fullness or Fat?

This is the excess fat under the chin, known as a double chin. It is the gathering of this fat in one place, whether due to genetics, aging, or weight gain.

How Does Kybella® Work?

The active ingredient found in Kybella® is synthetic deoxycholic acid, which helps to break down and absorb fat from someone's diet. When injected beneath the chin, it destroys fat cells over time resulting in a less full appearance and an overall better chin profile.

What Are Some Common Side Effects?

Some side effects of Kybella® include bruising, swelling, mild pain, numbness, or redness around the treatment area.

What Does It Cost?

The cost will depend on how many treatment sessions are recommended to help you achieve your goals. During your free consultation, we can discuss the cost of treatments and present a custom treatment plan for you. This allows you to know the cost of treatment before committing to it.
