What is Kybella?
If you are struggling with stubborn facial fat, particularly in the chin and neck area, Kybella® treatments can help tone the area, making you look years younger. Kybella® destroys fat cells, resulting in a significant reduction in fullness under the chin. The Deoxycholic acid used in this treatment is a naturally occurring molecule found in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, meaning once you have achieved the look you want, there is no need for repeat treatments.
The team at Internal Beauty Med Spa is proud to offer patients Kybella treatments. Our team stands by the treatments we offer, only recommending treatments that work and can offer them the results they are looking for!
Preparing for Treatment
The first step is to meet with an experienced team member for a consultation to determine if this procedure is right for you. She will examine the area under the chin, evaluating its fat composition while also considering what your aesthetic goals are. With that information, the practitioner can determine your eligibility and the likelihood that you will see the results you want!
How Long Does A Session Last?
During treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin. The entire injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The number of injections that are required depends on the amount of accumulated fat in the area, as well as your personal goals.
How Many Treatments Before I See Results?
Since every patient is unique, the number of required treatments varies. The practitioner will determine how many treatment sessions you need during your initial consultation, based on the quantity and distribution of your submental fat and your desired goals. Each Kybella® treatment session is given at least 1 month apart to allow for proper recovery.
Is There a Recovery Period?
After KYBELLA® treatment, you will likely have some swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin. You should treat the area with care for the first few days as it may be sensitive.
