Kybella for ChinsMED SPA TREATMENTS » Injections
Say goodbye to that double chin! Kybella is the first and only non-surgical injection approved by the FDA that dissolves excess fat under the chin. A Kybella double chin treatment is just 15 minutes and provides long lasting results with absolutely no downtime.
What Is Kybella?
Kybella dissolves excess fat under the chin, revealing a smooth jawline without the necessary recovery time of more expensive and invasive treatments – like plastic surgery.
It’s the first and only non-surgical treatment approved by the FDA for contouring and improving the appearance and profile of moderate to severe submental fullness, commonly known as a double chin.
How Does Kybella Work?
Kybella targets the underlying causes of submental fat. It contains deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.
When injected in the fat beneath your chin, Kybella destroys the fats cells — leaving all other cells unaffected. After treatment, your body clears the excess fat through its natural metabolic processes.
What Does An Injection Feel Like?
A certified Rejuvalase injection specialist will carefully administer a series of injections into the fat under the chin with a very fine needle. You will have the option to receive numbing cream prior to the injections to minimize any potential discomfort. Most treatment sessions last 15-20 minutes, with minimal downtime.
How Often Will I Need Kybella Treatments?
For optimal results, Kybella treatment requires 2-5 sessions spaced approximately 8 weeks apart. After a thorough analysis, your certified Kybella specialist will help you create a custom plan to meet your desired outcomes.
How Much Does Kybella Cost?
The cost depends on your desired outcome and treatment plan. The majority of clients require 2-4 vials per treatment for optimal results. Kybella costs $699/vial.
How Long Will My Results Last?
Kybella results are permanent. No further treatments are required unless submental fullness redevelops. Research has shown that fat may not be re-gained in the areas where Kybella has been injected.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is KYBELLA?
KYBELLA (deoxycholic acid) injection is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that is used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called, “double chin.”
How does KYBELLA work?
The active ingredient in KYBELLA is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, KYBELLA causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
Is KYBELLA right for me?
Only you and your medical provider can decide if KYBELLA is right for you. If you’re bothered by submental fullness or double chin, ask your provider about KYBELLA.
How many people have been treated with KYBELLA?
KYBELLA has been the focus of a global clinical development program involving over 20 clinical studies with more than 2,600 patients worldwide, of which over 1,600 have been treated with KYBELLA.
Will I experience any side effects?
The safety profile of KYBELLA is well characterized. The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness and areas of hardness around the treatment area. KYBELLA can cause serious side effects, including trouble swallowing and nerve injury in the jaw that can cause an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness.2 These are not all of the possible side effects of KYBELLA. Call your healthcare provider for medical advice about side effects.
How many treatments will I need?
You and your provider will customize your KYBELLA treatment regimen, including how many treatments you need, based on your desired chin profile. Many clients experience visible results in 2 to 4 treatment sessions. During these sessions, your provider will administer KYBELLA into the fat under your chin using multiple injections. Up to 6 treatment sessions may be administered spaced no less than one month apart.
How long will the results last?
When injected into the fat under your chin, KYBELLA causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After the aesthetic response is achieved, retreatment with KYBELLA is not expected.
