You may have worked hard to lose a few pounds, only to find you still have a double chin. Or maybe you have a naturally slim face, but putting on a few extra pounds is most obvious in the under-chin area. Extra chin fat can be extremely stubborn to get rid of, regardless of diet and exercise. With Kybella®, that double chin can disappear in only a few treatments.
What is Kybella?
Kybella is an enzyme that breaks down the fat cells of that puffy chin pad. The enzyme is naturally occurring in the body, and it is safe to use. It is injected into the area beneath your chin, where the enzymes go to work removing the fat portion, resulting in a slimmer face and profile. Your body removes the broken-down fat as regular waste.
While the enzymes permanently dissolve the fat cells, complete resolution of the fatty tissue usually requires several appointments. Many patients see results within the first four treatments.
Is Kybella Safe?
Kybella is FDA-approved, and it is a non-surgical procedure. There is no invasive cutting, no surgery and no anesthesia required. Treatments take under an hour and there is no downtime.
There are some side effects from Kybella, but it is important to remember the procedure is very safe. Most patients do not experience side effects, and your chance of an adverse reaction is greatly reduced when you have a licensed and trained dermatologist or plastic surgeon perform your Kybella procedure.
The most common side effects are temporary numbness, swelling and pain/bruising at the injection site. Your specialist can advise you about any other possible side effects during your consultation.
Expert Treatment with Kybella
For that chiseled, youthful jawline, professional injections are the only way to guarantee the enzymes are being placed in the targeted areas. Missteps by unqualified providers can harm other cells, causing damage that requires further treatment, often by a qualified plastic surgeon.
