How Does Kybella, The Fat Dissolving Injection, Work

Have you ever wished you could magically dissolve your double chin without surgery? Well, thanks to Kybella, that fantasy can become a reality. Kybella is a revolutionary treatment that’s changing the game in the cosmetic industry, helping people say goodbye to their stubborn chin fat and hello to a more defined jawline.

It’s not just your imagination; double chins are a common cosmetic concern that can impact self-confidence and self-esteem. While diet and exercise can sometimes help, they aren’t always enough to target submental fat. Enter Kybella, the fat-dissolving injection quickly gaining popularity as a non-surgical way to reduce a double chin.

Are you tired of feeling self-conscious about your double chin? You’re not alone. Luckily, Kybella is a cosmetic treatment that can help. With just a few injections, Kybella can target and dissolve submental fat, leaving you with a more sculpted and contoured chin and jawline. But how exactly does this treatment work? Let’s dive in.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is a new procedure used to dissolve fat. Kybella is a non-surgical option for reducing the appearance of moderate to severe fat below the chin, commonly known as a double chin. This procedure is performed by injecting deoxycholic acid into your submental area (the area under your chin), which destroys fat cells and causes them to be removed by your body’s natural process of metabolism.

Kybella injections effectively target the chin, neck, and double chin. This fat-dissolving injection is a non-surgical option for reducing fat in these areas.

How exactly does Kybella work?

When Kybella is administered into the submental fat, it breaks down the fat cells’ cell membrane, causing them to rupture and die. Once the fat cells are eliminated, the body naturally eliminates the dead cells through its waste removal system.

Kybella destroys fat cells with deoxycholic acid, which is found naturally in the body and helps break down and absorb dietary fat. This process destroys excess fat cells, resulting in a loss of volume in treated areas.

The most common areas for Kybella treatment are:

  • The neck (double chin)
  • Under-eye bags

Kybella is typically administered in a series of injections during an in-office appointment at Amara Rejuve Medical Spa & Laser. The number of injections and sessions required will vary depending on the individual and the extent of submental fat. The treatment is usually spaced out over several weeks, allowing time for the body to metabolize the dead fat cells.

What are the advantages of Kybella treatment?

Kybella offers several benefits for individuals looking to reduce submental fat and improve the appearance of their chin and jawline.

One of the primary advantages of Kybella is that it is a non-surgical and minimally invasive treatment. Unlike other procedures, such as liposuction or a facelift, Kybella does not require incisions or anesthesia, and patients can resume normal activities immediately after treatment.

Kybella offers long-term results, as the body permanently eliminates the destroyed fat cells. It means that patients can expect a reduction in submental fat that is both natural-looking and long-lasting.

Also, one of the advantages of Kybella is that it can be customized to meet each patient’s individual needs and goals. As your healthcare provider, we will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan that targets your specific areas of concern.

Who is a good candidate for Kybella?

Kybella is a suitable treatment for individuals with mild to moderate submental fat, often called a “double chin.” This treatment can be effective for individuals bothered by excess fat under the chin and who desire a more defined jawline and chin.

It’s important to note that Kybella is not a weight loss treatment and is not suitable for individuals with excessive skin laxity or other medical conditions affecting the neck area. A consultation with a qualified healthcare provider is necessary to determine if Kybella is a suitable option for you.

Other factors that may impact a person’s candidacy for Kybella include age and skin elasticity. Older patients with more skin laxity may see less dramatic results from Kybella than younger patients with tighter skin. In these cases, alternative treatments such as a neck lift or facelift may be more appropriate.

It’s essential to consult with a licensed healthcare professional to determine if Kybella is a suitable treatment for you. During the consultation, your healthcare provider will evaluate your medical history, skin type, and goals to determine if Kybella is the right option.

It’s also important to note that Kybella is unsuitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women, as the effects on the fetus or nursing infant are unknown.

What are the potential risks of Kybella?

While Kybella is generally considered safe and effective, like any cosmetic treatment, carries some potential risks and side effects. The most common side effects of Kybella include the following:

  • swelling
  • bruising
  • pain
  • numbness
  • redness in the treated area

These side effects usually resolve independently within a few days to a few weeks.

More severe complications can occur in rare cases, such as nerve damage, difficulty swallowing, or an uneven smile. It’s essential to choose a licensed and experienced healthcare professional to administer the treatment, as they will be better equipped to minimize the risk of complications and adequately manage any issues that may arise.

Before undergoing any cosmetic treatment, discussing any potential risks or concerns with your healthcare provider is essential, ensuring that you fully understand the procedure and its associated risks. It can help you make an informed decision about whether Kybella is the right choice.
