Battling a double chin? With Kybella you can now get rid of your double chin in a quick, in-office procedure that requires no downtime.
Fat under the chin, known medically as submental fullness, has traditionally only been treatable with liposuction surgery. Since then, several non-surgical treatment options have sprung up up – all designed to sculpt our chin and jaw line for a younger, “chiseled’ look.
Just as Coolsculpting precisely targets unwanted body fat, Kybella only targets fat that is directly under the chin. The procedure only takes minutes and requires no downtime. It is best suited for firm, younger skin as it will not tighten the skin but only removes volume. Typically 2-3 sessions are required.
The injection contains a molecule which destroys the fat cell membrane. Once the membrane is “popped”, the fat within the cells is naturally removed by the body.
*Results and patient experience may vary.
Quite simply, Kybella
Sound too good to be true? Here’s Kybella in the news.
At Restore Beauty Face & Body Clinic, Kybella treatments are performed only by Dr. James Howton, a master injector with advanced training in all dermal fillers, including the prestigious permanent filler Bellafill. So, you know you will have the most expert treatment. Dr. Howton tailors Kybella treatments and number of injections to each individual patient’s submental fat distribution and treatment goals.
First, you will need a consultation to determine the number of sessions required. Fat accumulates differently on everyone. On average, most patients need 3 sessions, all fast and easy, every 6-8 weeks. You will begin noticing changes very quickly and each session will remove more fat cells. We will certainly adjust your number of sessions if during your treatment program it is determined that you need less (or more) sessions. Rest assured, you will never be treated with more sessions than required.
The needles used for injection are fine, small needles (just like those used for Botox injections) and the injections are placed quickly. Your skin will be numbed with an ice pack prior to the injections so the most you will feel is a small sting from the numbing injection and some slight burning with the Kybella medication itself. Patients are usually surprised at how quick and comfortable the procedure actually is.
Kybella will cause some initial swelling and redness and the possibility of some minor bruising at the injection sites. You may feel numbness or some tenderness for several days to a week. These are normal and expected sensations and are caused by the action of the medication on the fat cells.
Kybella is offered to male and female patients over the age of 21. There is no upper age limit and clinical trial patients as old as 65 have been successfully treated.
There are a few medical conditions that would prevent your treatment. These can be discussed during your consultation. Patients with pronounced skin laxity due to age or premature loss of skin elasticity may require a tightening procedure after the procedures are complete.
Ever wonder what happened to that nicely chiseled jawline you had in your 20’s? Or perhaps you were never one of those lucky gents with a perfect side profile of crisply lined shadow. No matter how often you workout and eat well, you know you will never get rid of that double chin. Yet, a sharp jawline is one of the most attractive features of a man.
Kybella is an easy, non-surgical solution. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. Consequently, with just a few injections beneath the chin over a few months, targeted fat cells are destroyed…for good. 40% of Kybella treatments are performed on men.
