Are you still putting up with a double chin despite all your dieting and exercise? At Spa In The City in Dallas, TX, we understand how frustrating stubborn fat under the chin can be, which is why we offer Kybella. Our team of aesthetic specialists is here to help you look your absolute best, and this amazing, non-surgical treatment works to eliminate a double chin and give you a slim face and jawline.
How Can Kybella Slim Your Face and Jawline?
The Kybella formula is made with a synthesized version of deoxycholic acid. This acid is something that the body produces naturally to absorb and break down fat cells. The synthetic solution targets and destroys fat cells in the chin area so that fat can no longer be stored there. The formula continues to prevent fat from forming under the chin long after treatment, providing you with long-term results designed to last.
The specialized solution is administered into the submental area (under the chin) with a very fine needle and starts working to neutralize fat cells upon injection. Each treatment lasts about 15 to 20 minutes. Results are not necessarily immediate, but since the synthetic deoxycholic acid kills the fat cells it encounters, the results are a long-lasting sculpted profile that will leave you looking slim and beautiful.
Is It Safe?
This one-of-a-kind formula has been approved by the FDA as a safe and effective injectable to target excess fat cells in the area under your chin. A series of deoxycholic acid injections are made to target fat cells with no incisions necessary. By neutralizing fat cells, you can safely obtain a beautiful contoured image. It is also considered a viable alternative to fat reduction surgeries like liposuction.
A clinical trial reported this treatment to be well-tolerated in many patients and there was minimal downtime required for most cases. Furthermore, it was reported that 82.4% of people who received treatment had significantly improved satisfaction with their resulting look.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The required number of treatments needed will be different for each patient when it comes to this method of fat reduction. Multiple sessions may be necessary depending on your unique aesthetic goals in mind. You can receive as many as six treatments, and one month resting period is required between each visit. Our specialists will help you create a treatment plan that is best suited to you and your needs.
Who Is a Good Candidate for This?
A consumer survey in 2015 by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery found that 67% of individuals say they are bothered by a double-chin or excess neck-fat. Anyone who is struggling with moderate to severe amounts of fat underneath the chin can be a candidate for this treatment. Adults 18 years and older who have not had nor are planning to have facial surgery may elect to have this treatment done.
You may wish to consult with your doctor or one of our specialist before considering this treatment. If you are pregnant or nursing, have a medical condition near the planned injection site, or if you have trouble swallowing you may not be a good candidate for this.
What Can I Expect When Considering This?
As this is a non-surgical injection process, very little preparation is required prior to going in for your session, although it is advised to plan to have the treatment done well before major events to provide enough time for results to be significantly noticeable.
You will need to properly and thoroughly wash your face beforehand as so to reduce the risk of infection. Additionally, staying clear of ibuprofen and acetaminophen will help prevent and post-treatment bruising.
Preparing a Treatment Plan
Coming up with a treatment plan that is appropriate for you is important, and is something you will do with our aesthetic specialists to ensure you are a good candidate for the treatment. Make sure to discuss all medical history and talk about any issues in swallowing, or if you have bleeding problems. Previous treatments or surgeries to the neck and face should also be mentioned.
Effects of Kybella on a fetus or infant are still being studied, so let it be known if you are pregnant, nursing, or planning to become pregnant.
Just before the treatment begins, the injection sites will be noted with a marker, and you may be given an ice pack or topical numbing agent to help combat any discomfort you might have. On average there will be 20 to 30 injections and as many as 50 injections may be made under the chin. The acid will kill fat cells gradually and the body will metabolize them in the coming weeks to follow.
The plan you create with one of our specialists will be designed to meet your aesthetic goals and will be unique to you, but most patients do need more than one treatment to reach desired results. Clinical trials showed that many see visible results in just two to four treatments, and six treatments were needed by 59% of participants in order to obtain the look they wanted.
Once you obtain the contour you’re after, your new look will be long-lasting because the deoxycholic acid destroys fat cells, rendering them incapable of storing fat.
