Facial injections have become a staple in restoring the skin. Neuromodulators and dermal fillers can smooth lines and wrinkles, restore contour and volume, and even refine facial features. In addition, facial injections now offer an additional benefit that was previously only achievable with surgery – double chin removal.
Cell Theory: Institute of Cellular & Aesthetic Medicine in Miami, FL, works to ensure patients achieve their desired results without invasive surgery. We offer Kybella®, a groundbreaking treatment to eliminate submental fullness, also known as a double chin.
What Is Kybella?
Kybella is a breakthrough new treatment to eliminate your double chin. It is the first and only injectable that’s FDA-approved to destroy fat cells under the chin and refine your profile. In addition, the treatment requires no incision and minimal downtime.
How Does Kybella Work?
Kybella injections use the body’s fat-absorbing technology for double chin removal. The serum uses a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a chemical compound naturally produced by the liver as a bile acid to absorb fat.
When injected, Kybella dissolves the membranes that line the fat cells, gradually destroying the fat in the injection site. Then, the body metabolizes the destroyed cells and removes them through the lymphatic system.
The injections offer an additional benefit as well. The synthetic deoxycholic acid stimulates the body’s healing response, stimulating collagen and elastin in the area and lightly tightening the skin.
How Many Kybella Treatments Are Necessary for Results?
The number of treatments necessary to achieve optimal results from Kybella injections depends on your anatomy and individual needs. In Kybella’s clinical studies, most patients began to see results after one treatment but required multiple treatments, spaced around a month apart, to ultimately realize their aesthetic goals.
The results of Kybella are permanent. After completing your treatments, you can relax, knowing you will not require any follow-up treatments to sustain your outcome.
What Can I Expect from Kybella Injections?
At your consultation with our team to discuss Kybella injections, we will walk you through the procedure and assess your submental area to determine whether the double chin removal treatment is appropriate for your needs. Then, we’ll develop a plan to ensure your Kybella treatments provide you with the desired results.
The Kybella Procedure
When you arrive for your Kybella injections, we will clean the treatment area and identify fatty deposits on your chin for your injections. Some patients request a topical numbing cream, but Kybella doesn’t require general anesthesia or any additional risks inherent with surgery.
The treatment is fast. Kybella is injected into the subcutaneous tissue and directly targets fat deposits. Your injections take less than 30 minutes. Patients may experience a slight stinging sensation that lasts around two minutes and is relieved with an ice pack.
Your Kybella treatment can take six to eight weeks to break down the fat cells. On average, patients achieve their optimal results in three treatments. There is no limit to how many Kybella injections you can receive.
What Are the Benefits of Choosing Kybella?
In the Kybella clinical trials, 82% of participants reported significant improvements in their satisfaction with their appearance. While double chin reduction is the goal of Kybella injections, and the treatment was proven safe and effective, it offers even more benefits.
Kybella Patients Experience Surgical-Level Results
Patients seeking to avoid surgery and hoping to remove submental fullness have a solution in Kybella. The procedure requires no anesthesia, and after completing all treatments, patient results are comparable to liposuction.
Kybella treatments don’t require downtime, and patients can return to their daily activities after the procedure. We often recommend that patients use a neck compression garment post-injections to speed healing. Patients often choose to have the treatment on a Friday to allow recovery time before returning to work.
Kybella Mimics Natural Bile Acid
Kybella works by mimicking the body’s natural fat-processing action. Since the treatment capitalizes on the body’s process to emulsify and remove fat, it offers an efficient way to slim your jawline without adding unknown chemicals to your system.
The fat cells destroyed by Kybella are flushed out through the body’s lymphatic and excretory systems. Once the body removes those cells, they’re gone forever. In other words, your new jawline is permanent.
A Contoured, Youthful Appearance
After your double chin removal, you’ll no longer need to worry about the angle of your face in pictures or on video calls. Instead, you can enjoy your face’s new contour and refined jawline, providing a smoother transition between your neck and chin.
A sculpted jawline is a hallmark of a youthful appearance, so you’ll look more defined and present a younger impression.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Kybella?
The best Kybella candidates have a moderate amount of submental fullness and desire a non-surgical approach to removing it. Patients experience the best results when the skin underneath their chin retains some elasticity, as the treatment is not intended to treat excess skin.
Determining if Kybella is the right treatment for your double chin reduction is best decided during your consultation with our team. We can evaluate and discuss your specific needs and create a treatment plan to ensure you love your results.
