Anyone can be affected by a double chin—whether you are overweight or not. If you are among the 70% of Americans who are concerned about a double chin, also called submental fullness, KYBELLA offers a simple, non-invasive solution. KYBELLA at our plastic surgery center in Louisville, KY, can reduce the appearance of your double chin in only a few treatments and doesn’t require anesthetic. But with other options available to reduce submental fullness, what sets this injectable apart from its competition?
Benefits of KYBELLA
KYBELLA is made of a naturally occurring substance. To break down unwanted fat cells, KYBELLA uses an active ingredient called deoxycholic acid, which occurs naturally in the body. Deoxycholic acid is present in our digestive system to help break down ingested fat. Once we inject KYBELLA into your double chin, the deoxycholic acid damages the fat cell walls. Because this substance is already found in our bodies, there is little risk of a bad reaction to treatment.
It is a non-surgical treatment. KYBELLA is a minimally invasive procedure that provides dramatic results. It is a great option for patients who are unhappy with the look of their double chin, but who don’t want to undergo a surgical procedure. Another option for double chin reduction is liposuction, but this procedure requires a general anesthetic and significant recovery time.
Treatment sessions are short. The actual treatment only takes about 10 to 15 minutes, similar to the other injectables we offer. We start by marking your injection sites in a grid-like pattern on your neck. Then your skin is prepped with antiseptic and chilled with an ice pack. We also use an ice pack after treatment to minimize any swelling or discomfort. Because these appointments are so quick and efficient, many patients schedule them on their lunch breaks or in between errands.
There are minimal side effects. You can return to your normal daily activities soon after the procedure. Some patients experience swelling, bruising, redness, discomfort, and numbness. These side effects can be camouflaged with scarves or turtlenecks. However, any side effects should resolve quickly. Surgical options like liposuction require a more extensive recovery period.
They’ve got the data to back it. While other non-surgical methods to treat a double chin exist, KYBELLA’s effectiveness is backed by almost 10 years of clinical data. Many patients across the country have undergone this FDA-approved treatment and have achieved beautiful results. Your results can last indefinitely, especially if you maintain a healthy lifestyle and stable weight.
KYBELLA is a safe, easy, and effective way to improve your jawline. After just 2 to 6 short treatments spaced about a month apart, you’ll see the stubborn fat below your chin begin to disappear.
