Kybella is a cutting-edge injectable that literally burns away fat at the site of injection. It is commonly used to remove excess fat from under the chin or jowls, and can help you achieve the look you desire! Come to our clinic today to see if Kybella is right for you!
How long does Kybella last?
Are you so fed up with the excess fat below your chin that you’re thinking about getting Kybella? If so, it’s important to get informed, so that you understand how Kybella works, and how long it lasts.
Kybella results should last for years, because the fat cells that are destroyed are gone for good, and are no longer able to store fat. However, in order to maintain the results, patients should follow a regimen of healthy eating and regular exercise.
Most patients need 1-3 Kybella sessions to achieve a dramatic reduction in under-chin fat. Several injections are made into the submental fat during a single Kybella session, and the fat is gradually reduced with each treatment. The results of Kybella will be evident about 4-6 weeks after treatment.
What is Kybella used for?
Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells in the jowls or under the chin. Off-label, it can also be used to reduce fat in other parts of the body. Kybella kills fat cells wherever you inject it, so it may be an appropriate treatment anywhere there is excess fat or volume.
Kybella chin treatments require a series of injections individually tailored to your unique chin profile. The number of treatments can vary from patient to patient and is dependent on both the initial fullness beneath your chin and your aesthetic goals.
A synthetic deoxycholic acid is an active ingredient in Kybella. This ingredient is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the absorption and breakdown of dietary fat. When Kybella is injected into the fat beneath the chin it destroys the fat cells it comes into contact with. This gives the once full look under the chin a more slimmed-down appearance. These cells can no longer store or accumulate fat once they are destroyed, so once you reach your aesthetic goal, further treatment is not required.
In addition to the submental region, Kybella injections may be used effectively for fat reduction in various off-label areas, including:
- Axillary fat or armpit pouches
- Back fat
- Bra bulge or fat above the breast
- Fat surrounding the knee
- Lower buttocks fatty folds
- Outer thigh saddlebags
These are relatively smaller fat pocket areas that can be contoured most effectively with Kybella injections.
Does Kybella tighten skin?
If you’re having any concerns about your loosening skin or facial sagging, Kybella is a great solution.
Plenty of people deal with having fullness under the chin such as a double chin, an overly rounded face, sagging in the jowls, or all of the above. We can customize your Kybella procedure to your exact preferences and situation.
The results are permanent after the patient has undergone the recommended 2–3 treatments. Results will leave you in awe, as these results would have been thought to only be achievable through expensive surgery.
