People with double chins have few options when it comes to eliminating the extra tissue below the jawline. Medical professionals may recommend jaw exercises and a diet and exercise program to facilitate double chin reduction.
However, the body doesn’t always respond ideally. Sometimes, additional help is necessary. Kybella injections reduce stubborn fat under the jaw, resulting in a sleeker facial profile.
What Is Kybella?
Kybella is the only FDA-approved cosmetic injectable designed especially for double chin removal. When injected into the area beneath the chin, Kybella dissolves the fat cells. Over the following weeks, the contents of the fat cells spill into the lymphatic system for natural removal through the body’s elimination process.
Double chin removal is a popular request at medical spas around the country. Oftentimes, double chins are genetic and form according to a patient’s hereditary profile. But just because genetics incline a patient toward having a double chin doesn’t mean that nothing can eliminate it.
Kybella injections are an easy solution to remove excess fat underneath the chin.
Who Should Use Kybella?
Anyone struggling with double chin fat should consider Kybella injections. Typically, patients who have tried diet and exercise but still have excess fat in the jaw area respond best to Kybella. Patients with skin laxity often experience a mild skin-tightening benefit from the procedure.
It’s best to consult a trained provider at Miia Medspa before deciding to undergo Kybella injections. We can determine whether you’re a good candidate for Kybella or whether another treatment is more suitable for you.
What Are the Benefits of Kybella?
Choosing Kybella injections for double chin removal offers several benefits.
Kybella can destroy fat cells without the need for incisions or surgery. Our provider injects Kybella into the fatty tissue underneath the jaw. Ingredients in Kybella damage fat cells and the fat is eliminated naturally through the body’s lymphatic system.
Non-Surgical Alternative to Double Chin Removal
The three most common procedures to remove double chin fat are chin liposuction, neck lifts, and chin implants. All involve surgery, incisions, anesthesia, and downtime.
While they are effective treatments for removing a double chin, patients who are reluctant to undergo surgery or don’t have time to take away from other responsibilities appreciate Kybella.
One session of Kybella injections takes less than half an hour to complete. During the session, our provider injects up to 30 units of Kybella. Following treatment, you can return to your regular activities with minimal downtime.
Once Kybella destroys a fat cell, it’s gone forever. Patients who undergo Kybella injections experience permanent results. If a patient gains weight, new fat cells can form. We recommended that you follow a healthy diet and maintain your weight following Kybella treatment.
High Patient Satisfaction
Patients who undergo Kybella injections report significant improvements. Kybella is a less expensive, minimally invasive treatment alternative to chin liposuction. Because results appear gradually and no incisions are required, people likely won’t realize you’ve had a procedure unless you tell them.
Kybella contours the jawline, resulting in a sharper facial profile and a more youthful appearance. Individuals with skin laxity often see the most significant benefits, as their skin naturally snaps back in place once the fat cells have fully dissolved. Patients who choose Kybella experience a smoother transition between the chin and neckline.
What Can I Expect During a Kybella Appointment?
Before you receive Kybella injections, our trained provider will examine the area beneath your jaw. We’ll also ask for your medical history and a list of medications you’re taking. If we determine that you’re a good candidate for Kybella, we’ll schedule an appointment for treatment.
On the day of your Kybella procedure, we’ll begin by marking the injection sites. After cleansing and sterilizing the treatment area, we’ll apply a gentle topical numbing cream. Once your jaw area feels numb, our provider will administer the injections. Most people require between 20 and 30 injections in one session.
A treatment session with Kybella takes up to half an hour to complete. After your session, we’ll give you aftercare instructions. Over the following weeks, the fat cells underneath your jaw will gradually dissolve, resulting in a sleeker appearance to your jawline.
How Many Sessions of Kybella Will I Need?
You may need several sessions of Kybella to obtain optimal results. Most patients experience the best results after two to three sessions of injections. Sessions should be four to six weeks apart.
Patients see a gradual reduction in their double chin in the time between treatment sessions. During this time, you can gauge how you respond to Kybella. Patients who notice a significant reduction in their double chin may not need more than one or two treatments.
Can I Combine Kybella with Other Treatments?
You can combine Kybella with other treatments. Sometimes, a patient with excess fat under their jawline also chooses to get dermal fillers, Botox, or skin tightening procedures to smooth wrinkles and tighten their facial skin.
At Miia Medspa, we offer a variety of treatments designed to improve skin conditions and reduce the signs of aging. To learn about all of our procedures designed to treat wrinkles, volume loss, and other signs of aging, ask about them during your consultation.
