Since being approved by the FDA for the treatment of moderate to severe chin fat seven years ago, Kybella has quickly become a favorite treatment among our patients at Facial Aesthetic Concepts. It is a quick and easy way for people who have a double chin due to weight gain or genetics to restore definition to the neck and jawline without so much unappealing fat. In this blog, our team of aestheticians explain why Kybella is recommended among friends so often:
1. It’s Non-Surgical
Other submental fat treatments require surgery, with blades and sutures necessary to remove fat. The fact that Kybella is an injectable treatment that leaves no permanent marks and causes only momentary discomfort (at worst) is a large part of its appeal.
2. There’s No Downtime
Immediately following your Kybella treatment, you can return to your everyday schedule. Whether that means running errands, going back to work, picking up your kids from school or attending school yourself, you can drive yourself to wherever you need to go. The most common side effects patients experience are swelling, bruising, redness, and hardness around the injection site.
3. Almost Everyone Is a Candidate
Because Kybella is so safe and non-invasive, it is appropriate for most patients who wish to have the procedure. The team at Facial Aesthetic Concepts can confirm your candidacy during a consultation, but if you are in reasonably good health and have enough fat beneath your chin, chances are you will qualify for this treatment.
4. The Results Last a Very Long Time
Many injectable treatments like Botox and dermal fillers require periodic maintenance: every several months, you must return to the office for further injections. Thankfully, that is not the case with Kybella. While the medical professionals at Facial Aesthetic Concepts may end up suggesting a series of two or three injection sessions (spread out over a few weeks) to best help you achieve your desired results, once this course of treatment is done, you won’t need to worry about fat in this area any longer. The only reason you should need future treatments are if you gain a significant amount of weight.
5. It Really Works
For most patients (about 79%), Kybella is a highly effective treatment that is successful at killing submental fat cells. Results are not instantaneous, but they do gradually vanish from beneath the jaw. In fact, many of our patients enjoy the fact that the results manifest more slowly, because this makes it more likely that their friends and colleagues will assume the change is due to a lifestyle change rather than a cosmetic procedure. Eventually, being able to see yourself in the mirror without that pesky double chin is all the proof you need that Kybella has done its job.
