Looking to banish that double chin for good? Enter Kybella, the FDA-approved injectable treatment that dissolves unwanted fat beneath the chin. At Rejuvenate Center for Medical Aesthetics & Wellness in Aberdeen, we use Kybella to target the submental area, contouring the chin and jawline to create a more defined, youthful appearance.
The Injectable Solution to Submental Fullness
Kybella is an injectable treatment designed to target submental fullness, commonly known as a double chin. The treatment uses deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat. Patients typically require multiple treatments a few weeks apart to achieve optimal results. Kybella is a non-surgical alternative to traditional chin liposuction, providing a minimally invasive solution for those seeking a more defined jawline and improved facial profile.
- Double chin (submental fullness)
- Excess fat under the chin
- Lack of definition in the jawline
- Submental fullness due to weight gain or aging
- Overall appearance of the face and neck
How Kybella Works
Kybella uses a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a molecule naturally found in the body that helps break down and absorb dietary fat.
When injected into the submental area, Kybella targets the fat cells and disrupts their cell membrane, causing them to burst and be absorbed by the body’s natural processes. Over time, the treated fat cells are eliminated, resulting in a reduction of submental fullness and a more defined jawline.
Benefits of Kybella:
- Non-surgical treatment option
- FDA-approved for safety and efficacy
- No downtime required
- Gradual and natural-looking results
- Long-lasting reduction of submental fullness
- Can be customized to each patient’s unique needs
What Happens During Your Kybella Session
During a Kybella session, the healthcare provider will clean the treatment area and apply a numbing cream to ensure comfort. The provider will use a small needle to inject the Kybella solution into the submental area, targeting the fat cells beneath the chin. The treatment typically takes 15-20 minutes, and patients can return to normal activities immediately after the session.
Recovery & Results
After your Kybella treatment, you may experience mild swelling, bruising, or numbness in the treated area. These side effects are normal and usually subside within a few days. It’s important to avoid strenuous activity or exercise for 24 hours after the procedure to allow the area to heal properly. You should start to see gradual improvements in the treated area after a few weeks, with optimal results typically visible after two to three treatments spaced a few weeks apart. The reduction of submental fullness is long-lasting.
