KYBELLA® is a non-surgical injectable used to target the fat beneath the chin and, in some cases, other areas. The process uses a series of deoxycholic acid injections to target the fat cells in this area. No incisions are required, and the downtime is minimal in most cases.
Kybella injectable double chin reduction is a cost-effective, alternative treatment to more invasive surgical procedures like liposuction or a lower facelift.
Are You A Candidate for Kybella Injectable Double Chin Reduction
The best candidate is an adult 18 years or older with moderate to severe fat beneath the chin. This treatment is popular with both men and women as few areas of the body make us look older than a double chin.
A 2015 consumer survey done by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) found that 67 percent of individuals are bothered by excess fat under the chin or neck. Kybella is currently the only FDA-approved injectable to treat the appearance of a double chin.
You might not be a good candidate if you have had or are planning to have facial surgery, if you have trouble swallowing, are pregnant, or nursing, or have an infection or medical condition in or near the planned injection site.
How Does Kybella Work?
Kybella uses a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring form of salt in human bile that aids fat digestion. Simply put, it destroys fat cells. Deoxycholic acid breaks down fat in our digestive system by destroying the cell membrane. The same effect happens when this cytolytic drug is injected into subcutaneous fat in targeted locations. This effect renders dissolved fat into cellular debris, which the body clears via lymphatic and circulatory systems. The reduction of fat is not immediate. It happens gradually over several weeks. The deoxycholic acid also gets metabolized and excreted as waste.
The bottom line is Kybella explodes the membrane of fat molecules, which are then metabolized by the body and excreted. Think of it as an Easter egg with chocolate inside. Break apart the shell, and the chocolate escapes.
Is Kybella Limited To The Fat Under The Chin?
At Esthetic Solutions Med Spa, we also use Kybella to reduce bra fat, “under boob”, for abdominal sculpting, the inner and outer thighs, and knee fat pads, and other particularly tricky spots that exercise and weight loss will never take care of.
