KYBELLA® is a first-of-its kind non-surgical treatment for moderate to severe fullness under the skin. Through a series of tailored treatments, KYBELLA permanently destroys fat cells in the treatment area.
Although many people develop a double chin as they gain weight, genetics and aging can also result in fat under the chin even when you stay at a healthy weight. Marcea Wiggins, ND, and the team at SANTÉ Aesthetics & Wellness has extensive experience injecting KYBELLA to permanently eliminate fat and restore a slim chin line. To learn whether you’re a good candidate for KYBELLA, call our office in Portland to schedule a consultation.
What is Kybella and How Does it Work?
KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells in the treatment area under the chin to improve your profile.
The active ingredient in Kybella is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, which is naturally found in your body. Deoxycholic acid’s normal job is to assist digestion by breaking down dietary fats. When it’s injected under your chin, it does the same thing: It breaks down fat cells, then your body naturally clears away the waste. As a result, the fat is gone for good.
Am I a Suitable Candidate for Kybella?
Your doctor at SANTÉ Aesthetics & Wellness will review your medical history and ask a series of questions to learn of any potential problems that might interfere with you undergoing Kybella treatments. These questions include:
- Any current or past infections in the targeted area
- Having bleeding problems
- Having had or plan to have cosmetic surgery on your face, neck, or chin
- Medical conditions affecting your neck such as trouble swallowing
- Are you pregnant or plan to become pregnant
- Are you breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed
In general, most patients with excess fat under their chin are good candidates for Kybella.
What should I expect during and after KYEBLLA treatment?
Your provider at SANTÉ applies a topical anesthetic, then injects multiple shots of KYBELLA. Depending on the size of the area, treatment usually takes 15-20 minutes.
After your session is finished, there may be redness and swelling on your treatment area. Some patients may also have bruising, numbness, or areas of hardness following the injections. You can return to work or your normal routine after a KYBELLA treatment, but you’ll need to avoid strenuous activities for a brief time.
When Will I See the Results?
Fat cells slowly break down over the course of a few weeks, so it takes time to see results. You also need to finish all your treatments before you achieve optimal results and finally see your new chin profile.
The number of treatments you need depends on the amount of fat being eliminated. You can receive up to six treatments, spaced no less than one month apart. Your body needs about a month to clear away the destroyed fat between sessions.
Some patients get their desired results with two to four KYBELLA treatments. However, almost 60% of patients received all six treatments to get their desired chin line.
