How Kybella Injections Work

Soft Tissue Fillers,

If you have submental fat, you’re certainly not alone. A double chin is a layer of fat that forms beneath your chin, and it can happen to people of all ages. Sometimes, a double chin develops because of your DNA. If someone in your family has a double chin, then, you might develop one. 

Your diet may also be to blame if you’re gaining weight, and then, there’s the age factor. As you get older, the skin begins to lose elasticity and can often result in a double chin. 

FDA-Approved and Zero Anesthesia 

Kybella injections are performed at our Beaute Therapies Medical Spa and are comprised of a prescription medicine containing synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is the key ingredient with the ability to destroy the fat cells under the chin to improve your profile. The injections are recommended for those ages 18 and older who don’t want surgery but want to get rid of a double chin. 

Kybella is the only FDA-approved drug given the thumbs up for injection treatments of submental fat. It does not require general anesthesia. 

A 20-Minute Session Office Procedure 

When you visit our West Palm Beach Florida location for a free consultation, our team of experts will take the time to speak with you and determine if you are a good candidate for Kybella. 

A session takes between 15 and 20 minutes to complete. You will be given a numbing cream before the multiple, small injections begin. A dot grid is often used to mark where injection placement will go under the chin to ensure that the medication is evenly placed for smooth and natural results.  

When our experts in West Palm Beach Florida inject Kybella into the fat beneath your chin, it will destroy the fat cells. That area can no longer store or accumulate fat, so the treatment process is delivering virtually permanent results. 

When a fat cell is targeted, it creates an inflammatory response, and this causes temporary swelling. After the inflammation is gone, the effect of tighter skin appears. 

A Revolutionary Cosmetic Treatment 

Kybella injections are unique, safe, and effective for improving the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin. Some doctors liken the treatment to that of a syringe version of liposuction. The injections provide permanent results with little downtime. 

With each Kybella session, you will begin to see a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. You will not need further treatment once you reach your desired aesthetic goal. 

Every individual is different, but most clients usually have between two and six sessions. To schedule a consultation at our West Palm Beach Florida spa, visit us here.
