BYE BYE DOUBLE CHIN
If you're bothered by the fullness beneath your chin, then Kybella® might be the solution you're looking for. This nonsurgical option is great for women and men who want to slim down this common trouble spot. As many of us know, you can be in great shape and still have a double chin, and just a little bit of extra fat in this area can make you look older and heavier. Kybella injections target this stubborn fat, streamlining the neck and jawline for a slimmer, younger appearance.
Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells in the treatment area under the chin to improve your profile. Since April 2015, Kybella has been revolutionizing the world of nonsurgical cosmetic treatments, and many in the cosmetic industry are hailing it as the biggest innovation since Botox.
The active ingredient in Kybella is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections and treatments will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile.
Before your Kybella treatment, and during your complimentary consultation, a thorough assessment and medical history will be completed to determine if Kybella is the best treatment for you. Together, you and provider will go over the Kybella side effects you need to be aware of, including:
Hardness in treatment area
More serious, however rare, side effects can include:
Nerve injury causing weakening of facial muscles
Of course, we recommend that you seek immediate care if you experience any of these rare side-effects and notify your provider at Newtown MediSpa.
