For some of us, it doesn’t matter how much you exercise and diet, you can’t lose that stubborn fat beneath the chin. Many times it’s hereditary; you’ve had your double chin all your life. But now, you can get rid of your double chin with Kybella! Kybella is the first FDA approved injectable for under the chin area. The injection contains a naturally occurring molecule which eats away at fat. When injected properly, all other cells are left healthy and intact.
What is the Kybella treatment like?
Kybella is injected under the skin directly into the area beneath your chin. Most patients usually need anywhere from 2 to 4 treatments, scheduled approximately 1 month apart. Many times after the second treatment patients may see significantly less swelling and need a smaller amount of injections. The actual treatment is described as somewhat uncomfortable, as the area will experience some swelling after the injection.
What happens after the treatment?
Immediately after the injection, apply ice to reduce the swelling. There will be puffiness and some tenderness for a few days in the area. Patients can experience swelling from 4 -10 days after the procedure. The area doesn’t hurt, it just feels “full”, is how many patients describe their chin afterwards. But because it’s not an invasive procedure, the recovery promises to be faster than recovery from liposuction.
The fact that Kybella was approval by the FDA is a very notable breakthrough. The results are actually quite impressive and clients are amazed and pleased with their results.
