Kybella® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that can eliminate fat under the chin. Residents of Houston, Sugar Land and Kerrville, TX, can try this remarkable treatment for themselves at Layton Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
What is Kybella®?
Kybella® is an injectable treatment that eliminates fat under the chin to enhance the contours of the face. The Kybella® formula is composed of deoxycholic acid, which is a substance found naturally in the body. Deoxycholic acid is responsible for helping the body break down and absorb fat. When injected under the chin for the treatment of submental fullness, Kybella® can be an effective solution for double chin removal.
How Much Does Kybella® Cost?
The cost of a Kybella® treatment can vary depending on the extent of treatment necessary to deliver your desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Layton will be able to provide you with a treatment plan that matches your specific needs. At this point, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of your treatment. We also offer financing services to help make this and other treatments more affordable.
How Does Kybella® Help with Double Chin Reduction?
Once the Kybella® formula is injected into the neck area, the deoxycholic acid begins to break down fat. Over time, the Kybella® formula will eliminate fat under the chin to reduce the appearance of a double chin. However, it is important to note that some patients may need multiple treatments to achieve their desired results. We may recommend as many as five treatments, although many patients are satisfied after just two or three.
What is the Kybella® Treatment Like?
Kybella® and other injectable treatments are minimally invasive, and don’t require any anesthetic for the procedure. During the treatment, a few injections of the Kybella® formula will be administered into and around the area underneath the chin. You may feel a pinch during the injection, but it is tolerable. Once the injections are finished, your treatment will be complete.
Is There Any Downtime After Kybella®?
There is no downtime required after Kybella®, and you will be able to return to work and other normal activities immediately after your appointment. This is why Kybella® and other injectable treatments are commonly referred to as “lunchtime” solutions. Patients may notice minor swelling, redness or bruising around the injection site, but these effects typically fade within a few days of treatment.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Kybella®?
The results from Kybella® will develop gradually as the formula begins to take effect in the body. Patients typically begin to notice results about one month after treatment, but may not notice the full results of treatment for as long as three to six months after their appointment. These results will improve with each additional treatment. Fortunately, the Kybella® formula permanently destroys fat cells in the area. As long as a patient maintains healthy diet and exercise habits following their procedure, they can expect long-lasting and even permanent results.
