Stubborn fat under the chin can be deeply frustrating. Not only can it make you look heavier or older than you really are, but often no amount of exercise will be able to get rid of it. But what if you could achieve a sleek and contoured jawline in just a few simple sessions? With Kybella, you can. Here at Nicole Norris MD Medical Spa in Peru, IL, we can correct your double chin and get your profile looking more sculpted, so you’ll walk away feeling gorgeous!
Are Kybella Results Permanent?
This incredible treatment destroys many fat cells completely, and once gone, they can’t grow back. That means the results of this treatment are almost permanent! What’s worth understanding, however, is that results are best preserved when patients maintain a healthy and active lifestyle following treatment. This is because a lot of cells only shrink during treatment, and could potentially expand if a patient were to put on weight.
Following a balanced diet and exercise regularly will ensure you maintain a steady weight and don’t experience weight gain around the chin, meaning you can enjoy long-lasting, gorgeous results from your treatment. Want to learn more? Read on to find out just how Kybella can work for you.
What Is Kybella?
This is a revolutionary treatment that’s used to target and eliminate the fat under and around the chin, clinically known as “submental fullness”. Using a very fine needle, a small amount of product is injected into the chin, where it destroys fat cells. It’s FDA-approved, time-efficient, and minimally invasive, and for this reason, patients can’t get enough of it!
How Does This Treatment Work?
This treatment involves injecting submental fullness with a fine needle filled with product. The key ingredient in this product used is deoxycholic acid, which is a compound that occurs naturally in the stomach and breaks down fat during digestion. Used in this treatment, it does the same thing but breaks down fat in the chin.
Once broken down, fat cells will either release fluid and shrink down or be destroyed altogether. The fluid and destroyed cells will leave the body through the metabolic process, and leave patients with a gorgeous, refined jawline!
Since deoxycholic acid is naturally-occurring in the body, it’s highly unlikely it will reject it or have an allergic reaction to it, meaning it’s a very safe way to remove a double chin.
What Will the Treatment Be Like?
First, we’ll ask you to come in for an initial consultation. Here we’ll review your medical history and discuss your cosmetic goals to ensure that this treatment is right for you. If so, we’ll design a treatment plan that’s unique to you, deciding how many injections and sessions you’ll need to achieve your dream profile.
We perform this treatment in-house, and it’s incredibly simple and straightforward. The product will be injected into your submental fullness using a small needle, which most patients say they can’t even feel. The entire session takes about 15 minutes, and then you’re all done!
This treatment requires almost no recovery period, which patients love. You can carry on with your day immediately following your session, and head back to work or running errands. The fact that no anesthetic is used means patients can even drive themselves to and from treatment.
How Many Sessions Are Needed?
Most patients find that they’re thrilled with their results after between two and four sessions. A few people only need a single session to reach their cosmetic goal, and we’ll offer as many as six sessions. In the end, it will depend on the individual and the size of the submental fullness, and we’ll discuss all of this while we’re developing your treatment plan. Generally, patients have a month between sessions.
How Long Before I See Results?
Once you’ve undergone treatment, the destroyed fat cells and released fluid have to leave the body via natural processes. This will generally happen over several weeks, but the exact time will depend on the individual and the way their body works. Usually, patients start to notice initial results after two or three weeks, sometimes even up to a month, and see optimal results after a few additional sessions.
Am I a Good Candidate for This Treatment?
Anyone over the age of 18 looking to get rid of a double chin may be a good candidate for this treatment, as it is safe for all skin types and genders. Candidates should be healthy and not on any medication that could affect the outcome of treatment, which is something we’ll go over during your consultation. This treatment is not suitable for those who are pregnant.
This treatment should be used to address the cosmetic concern of submental fullness, and not as any kind of weight-loss solution or way to burn calories. It’s also perfect for those who are interested in a procedure such as liposuction, but are worried about infections from surgery or can’t afford to schedule downtime while they recover.
