Treat yourself to Kybella, the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells under the chin, right here in Danville. Kybella is made of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps with the breakdown and absorption of fat. When injected into the chin, it dissolves fat to create a sculpted, attractive jawline that lasts.
Submental fullness, also known as a “double chin”, is the accumulation of subcutaneous fat under the chin. Age, genetics, and weight gain play a major role in the development of submental fullness. Even those who live healthy and active lifestyles may still have a double chin, affecting their confidence and overall look.
Kybella treatments work best for those who still have good skin elasticity because it allows the skin to conform smoothly to the slimmer contour. Although Kybella can help to tighten the skin, it cannot reverse severe skin laxity. If you have moderate to severe submental fullness with an absence of prominent neck bands, you are an appropriate candidate for Kybella injections. However, if you have severe skin laxity, scar tissue, prominent neck bands, and/or extreme submental fullness Kybella may not be the right approach for you.
To see if you are a candidate for Kybella, schedule a consultation with PA Zarnegar, our advanced aesthetic provider.
Your treatment with Kybella will begin with a full face assessment by PA Zarnegar. This will allow her to determine if you are an appropriate candidate for Kybella. Multiple angle photos will be captured to evaluate your facial anatomy and submental profile. After a full assessment, PA Zarnegar will then strategically map out the treatment area, known as the “Treatment Zone”, and begin injecting the product. The number of injections you receive will vary depending on the amount of fullness.
For optimal results, we combine Kybella treatments with radiofrequency (RF) massages. This helps disperse the product and tighten and tone the jawline and neck area.
What are the
side effects of Kybella
Kybella treatments typically take 30-45 minutes to complete. In the hands of an expert injector such as PA Zarnegar, you will feel minimal discomfort during the procedure. Common side effects include swelling, bruising, numbness, and redness at the injection sites. These can last between 2-4 weeks depending on each individual. Our office will provide you with pre and post-treatment information to help reduce downtime after the procedure.
Treatments Will I Need
Most patients achieve desired results after a series of 3 treatments spaced out in 4 to 6-week intervals. The number of treatments depends on your aesthetic goals, existing chin profile, and how your body responds to the medication.
I See Results
You will begin to see optimal results 4 to 6 weeks after your last treatment with Kybella.
Results are long-lasting since Kybella causes the permanent destruction of fat cells in the treatment area. After reaching your desired look, further treatments are not expected.
