Chin Up, Confidently: How Kybella Can Transform Your Profile

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if the fat under your chin could just be melted away? Now it can, with Kybella. Kybella is a cosmetic injectable designed to address submental fat, the pocket of fat under your chin. It’s the first and only FDA-approved injectable that treats the double chin area. Kybella is a non-invasive, non-surgical option for chin fat elimination. Patients also prefer it because it has fewer risks and lower downtime than surgery.

How Does Kybella Work?

Kybella’s active ingredient is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a substance found in your liver’s bile. This acid helps break down fats you eat so they’re more digestible. Similarly, Kybella injections dissolve fat under your chin. The procedure doesn’t make fat cells smaller but destroys and permanently eliminates them. After your chin’s fat cells are dissolved, your body’s waste system flushes them away over several weeks. This type of fat can be caused by genetics, aging, or weight gain.

Are Kybella’s Results Permanent?

Once Kybella destroys fat cells, they can’t grow back. The results can easily last a lifetime. Not only does Kybella enhance your appearance, but it can boost your confidence.

Who is a Good Candidate For Kybella?

Good candidates for Kybella are healthy men and women ages 18 and up who want a more defined neck and jawline. The procedure is suitable for individuals with moderate to severe double chin. People who receive this treatment should have realistic expectations and goals.

However, you might not be a good candidate if you are pregnant or nursing, have difficulty swallowing, have an infection or scar near the target area, suffer from a bleeding disorder, are taking blood thinners, or have sunburn or acne.

What is a Kybella Treatment Like?

A trained professional administers Kybella at iGlow Med Spa in Beverly Hills. The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis. First, the treatment area is carefully mapped to place the injections properly. Kybella uses a fine needle and typically feels like a minor burning sensation. However, you may feel discomfort because there are quite a few injections so you can opt for a topical or local anesthetic.

Treatment usually takes less than 30 minutes. For the best results, patients receive two to six sessions, each spaced four weeks apart.

Typically, you can go right back to your usual routine. However, 24 hours after the procedure, you must not participate in strenuous activities.

How Will I Feel After Receiving Kybella?

Right after treatment, you may experience:

  • Swelling
  • Discomfort
  • Pain
  • Redness

These effects are common and usually subside in one to two weeks.

How Long Will It Take to See Results?

Although results aren’t instant, many Kybella patients notice visible effects after two to four treatments. This is because it takes time for the acid to damage and destroy fat cells.

Can I do Anything to See Faster Results?

You need to help dead fat cells leave your body for faster results. Ensuring you are hydrated can aid in the release of fat cells. You can also optimize your body’s waste removal system by getting 30 to 60 minutes of daily cardio.
