What is Kybella?
Many individuals live with submental fullness or excess fat beneath the chin. This can be something that an individual is born with or appears due to weight gain or aging. Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that works to eliminate submental fullness for a slimmer neck and chin profile.
The Kybella Procedure
Kybella is made up of deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps to breakdown and absorb dietary fat. During treatment, a topical anesthetic will be applied to the treatment area to ensure a comfortable treatment experience. Then, Kybella will be injected into numerous areas under the chin using a very fine needle. Many patients can experience visible results after 2-4 treatments, though up to 6 treatments may be necessary. During your consultation with Dr. Sabbagh, you can discuss your individual aesthetic goals and the number of treatments required to meet them.
Following Kybella injections at Straith Clinic, patients may experience swelling, bruising, numbness, and pain in the treatment areas, though these side-effects should be temporary. Once Kybella destroys fat cells in the double chin, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat for long-lasting results. There is little to no downtime associated with Kybella injections, so you can return to most of your everyday activities right away. If you are ready to take the first steps towards eliminating your double chin, contact Straith Clinic today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Sabbagh.
