This treatment is a relatively new procedure that allows patients with a “double chin” to remove that fat from under their chin forever! It is the only FDA approved treatment to improve the appearance of fat below the chin. The fat under the chin is injected with a special formulation that works to permanently destroy the fat cells allowing to bring about a more defined jawline.
+ How long does a Kybella treatment take?
The treatment should take about 30 minutes to perform.
+ When will I see results?
This depends on the amount of submental fat as the medication has to work it’s way through the fat cells, destroying them one by one. On average it can take 4-6 weeks to see the final result.
+ Does the treatment hurt?
We provide anesthesia to help make the procedure as comfortable as possible. There may be some discomfort post procedure as the fat cells are being destroyed and some post treatment swelling.
+ Are there any side effects?
Some side effects are expected with any needle injections, such as pain, swelling, or bruising. Serious side effects can occur if the treatment is performed by an inexperienced injector. These can include trouble swallowing or nerve injury that can temporarily result in an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness. This is why it is important to have your injections done by a trained physician.
