Kybella® Injections in Meredith, NH
Kybella Treatment for Stubborn Double Chin Removal
Within your digestive system, Kybella (deoxycholic acid) works to break down dietary fat. When injected into the area underneath your chin using a specific injection pattern, Kybella breaks down the cells and helps eliminate fat in the submental tissue. The fat cells are then naturally flushed from the body.
Because Kybella also stops more fat stores from forming, results are permanent.
Kybella Double Chin Removal in Lakes Region, NH
Deoxycholic acid injection is an FDA-approved, non-surgical treatment that dissolves excess fat around the jawline. Used to treat both double chins and jowls, Kybella uses a series of deoxycholic acid injections that destroy fat cells in the area, which are then naturally reabsorbed by the body. The cosmetic results are permanent! Once the fat cells die, they cannot regrow!
Adults with moderate to severe submental fat (double chin) is:
A chin profile line that slopes down could affect your appearance. Learn more about improving your chin profile non-surgically – permanently destroying the fat under your chin.
There is no downtime. You may experience some temporary swelling at the injection site that fades quickly.
You may experience temporary swelling and bruising at the injection site that fades within a few weeks. Some ways you can minimize swelling include:
- Use ice or cold packs after treatment
- Apply warm compress within the first few days after injections
- Use over-the-counter pain and inflammation medication like ibuprofen to reduce pain and swelling
- Firmly massage the area when tolerated
Recovery and Results
The overall recovery timeline is about one month, which is why it is recommended that you wait at least one month to do another Kybella treatment. Multiple sessions are typically needed, and some people may need fewer treatments than others. Patients have seen noticeable changes within twelve weeks or after two sessions.
It is very important to space the injections apart to allow the active ingredient time to target submental fat in the chin, but it also gives your body time to heal between treatments. If too many treatments are given too close together, your risk of side effects, like swelling, can increase.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is Kybella?
Kybella, an injectable medication approved by the FDA, is used to remove fat in the area underneath the chin. RR Aesthetics is pleased to offer this treatment with our expertly trained staff.
What areas can be treated with Kybella?
Kybella is approved by the FDA to improve the look and profile of submental fullness caused by submental fat. What’s that you ask? Submental describes the area underneath the chin. The fullness (fat) in this area is historically referred to as a double chin. Treatment of the double chin using Kybella has seen excellent results without the surgical intervention of liposuction.
What is recovery like for Deoxycholic acid injections?
The recovery from Deoxycholic acid injections is relatively painless. There is some initial discomfort immediately after the injections for about 15 minutes. Patients experience tenderness and/or numbness to the area after the treatment. Kybella does cause swelling that we tell our clients to plan for. This swelling is one way you can tell Kybella is working, and is helpful, as it can sometimes lead to some skin tightening along with fat reduction.
How long do results from Kybella injections last?
After you have your series of Kybella treatment (3-6 sessions spaced about 6 weeks apart) and have achieved your desired result, you will not need further injections. While Deoxycholic acid injections do not remove every fat cell, it does drastically reduce and remove the cells that you are targeting and these cells will not return.
