No More Double Chin With KYBELLA
Get rid of that double-chin with Kybella – a non-surgical injectable that reduces fat on the upper neck and chin area known as submental fat. Kybella is simply deoxycholic acid, which is found in our bodies naturally. It is a fat-absorbing acid that, if injected, eliminates fat cells. The body then reabsorbs those cells, and the area treated appears more contoured and tightened. Kybella is a non-invasive treatment, meaning there is little to no downtime or recovery period and no surgery involved. At Behr Body Contouring in Fresno, California, we are happy to offer this groundbreaking double chin treatment to our patients.
The Kybella treatment lasts about 15-20 minutes. A topical anesthetic is applied to the area before the procedure to limit discomfort. Results from Kybella vary, as every patient case is different and will depend upon how much fat under the chin needs to be eliminated. It generally takes 3-4 weeks to see post-treatment results. Several treatments may be required to reach optimal results. Patients usually see chin contouring results after 2-4 treatments. Some patients require up to 6 treatments. Common side effects with Kybella are swelling, pain, bruising, numbness, redness, or hardness in the area after treatment.
Perfect candidates for Kybella are patients that are unhappy with submental fat under the chin area. Double chin fat can give patients a heavier or older appearance. It’s also the type of chin fat that doesn’t go away with diet or exercise. Many patients feel that double chin surgery is too invasive, so Kybella provides an alternative to double chin treatment and usually requires several sessions to achieve a contoured look. The best way to know if Kybella is right for you is to schedule an exam with your doctor. Sign up for a free consultation with Behr Body Contouring today.
