Kybella Double Chin Treatment

skin tightening treatments for face

What is Kybella used for?

It may sound too good to be true, but fat-dissolving injections can prove effective in the removal of excess fat! Our Kybella fat-dissolving injections target stubborn pockets of fat using active ingredient deoxycholic acid for long lasting results that leave your chin and jawline defined and sharp.

How does Kybella work?

Fat dissolving injections are incredible compounds that work to break down the membranes of the fat cells beneath the skin that are typically resistant to exercise using an active ingredient called deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid works by disrupting fat cells, in turn making them unstable. These cells then begin to break down and flush out through the body via the lymphatic system. This treatment can be permanent as part of a healthy lifestyle. Commonly used to treat submental fat (double chin) or fat around the jawline and jowls, fat dissolving injections can give dramatic results to help recontour the face. The ideal candidate for fat dissolving are those that have attempted a strict gym routine or balanced diet with little to no results. As well as those who have achieved significant weight loss but can not shift small stubborn pockets of fat.

How does the procedure work?

Usin fat dissolving product, Kybella, our doctors and nurses inject small amounts of deoxycholic acid, the active ingredient in Kybella, under the chin area with micro-fine needles. This procedure lasts up to 45 minutes and is relatively painless. There is swelling for up to two-three weeks after fat dissolving injections which is a common side effect of the treatment and a sign of the fat cells disrupting and flushing through the body. Fat dissolving injections are a great alternative to surgery as it works naturally with the body and is a great solution for those interested in fat reduction that has long lasting results on localized pockets of fat.
