When it comes to addressing stubborn fat under your chin, getting a bit of extra help may be necessary. Effective treatments do exist and without the necessity for major surgery. At TKI, we offer KYBELLA® chin fat reduction treatments to get rid of stubborn fat for good. This non-surgical alternative to liposuction is FDA-approved to address “submental fullness,” aka the dreaded double chin.
How does KYBELLA® chin fat reduction work?
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, the deoxycholic acid destroys fat cells so fat can’t be stored anymore.
How can I prepare for treatments?
As a non-surgical procedure, there is little preparation required for a KYBELLA® treatment. Avoiding aspirin and other anti-inflammatory medications two weeks before treatment is recommended to prevent bruising.
What can I expect during treatments?
During each treatment session, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin. The injection process may take 15 to 20 minutes to complete. The exact number of injections you receive will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile.
When will I see results and how long do they last?
KYBELLA® works gradually to destroy fat cells, which are metabolized by the body over the following weeks. Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatment sessions will vary. During your consultation, your TKI provider will create a custom treatment plan just for you. Each treatment is given at least 1 month apart and you won’t receive more than 6 treatments total.
Are the treatments painful?
Ice is applied to the treatment area to slightly numb the injection site. Some patients note that the injections are a bit more uncomfortable than BOTOX® or other fillers, and have experienced a stinging after injection. At TKI, we offer a comfort menu and aim to leave you feeling as relaxed as possible.
Swelling is a normal side effect and can last up to 4 weeks. Numbness and/or tenderness is also common over the first few days following treatment.
Are KYBELLA® chin fat reduction results permanent?
For patients that maintain a normal to a healthy lifestyle, results can be permanent.
