If your face looks heavy and tired, you may have a double chin. Diet and exercise rarely help with this problem, but there’s hope without surgery thanks to Kybella®. Our healthcare providers customize Kybella® treatments for the personal needs of men and women in Jupiter, Wellington and Palm Beach County, FL, and communities nationwide.
What is Kybella®?
Kybella® is an injectable treatment for submental fullness which is the excess fat that develops under the chin and jawline. Most often referred to as a double chin, this fat makes your face look long and heavy. Before Kybella® was introduced, men and women with this common problem had to either live with it or undergo liposuction and hope that the results looked natural. In addition to eliminating the need for surgery, Kybella® gradually reduces the fat, so people believe that you are just losing weight.
How Much Does Kybella® Cost?
Kybella® is unique among injectable med spa treatments, so you may want to know more before you commit to the procedure and cost. Our healthcare providers offer consultations so you can understand how the treatment works. If you decide to have Kybella® injections for your double chin, we can discuss the cost, and you can schedule an appointment at your convenience.
What Are the Benefits of Kybella®?
- Eliminates the need for surgery to reduce fat under the chin and jawline
- No downtime needed
- Gradual fat reduction over 16 weeks
- Each treatment takes about 30 minutes
Am I a Candidate for Kybella®?
We cannot say for sure if you are a candidate for Kybella® before your consultation, but most people who are near a healthy weight and have submental fullness are good candidates for the procedure. Another consideration is the laxity of your skin, meaning that it still has enough elastin to contour to the chin and jawline. Otherwise, your Kybella® may result in loose, sagging skin.
How Are Kybella® Injections Performed?
Kybella® is injected at several points in the excess fat. The needle is very small, and most patients tolerate the procedure quite easily. If you do find that you are uncomfortable during the injections, our medical team can numb the skin.
When Will I See Results from Kybella®?
We recommend a series of injections for the best results. Most patients see the greatest reduction of fat after 16 weeks, although this does vary by individual.
How Long Do the Results of Kybella® Last?
Kybella® contains an enzyme that works on fat cells and causes the outer membrane to break down. The contents of each fat cell are released into the bloodstream where it is either used for energy or eliminated naturally. This mechanism permanently destroys the fat cells, but you may develop new fat cells around the treatment area. Our dedicated providers will work with you to determine changes to your lifestyle that will prolong the results as long as possible.
