Achieve a Defined Jawline 

What is Kybella?

Dreaming of a sharper jawline and a more sculpted profile? Kybella might be the answer you've been searching for. Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable treatment specifically designed to address submental fat, commonly referred to as a double chin.

Unlike traditional liposuction, Kybella offers a non-surgical approach to eliminate unwanted fat cells under the chin. It utilizes a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in fat breakdown. When injected into the targeted area, Kybella gradually destroys fat cells, leading to a visible reduction in submental fullness and a more defined jawline.

Here's what makes Kybella unique:

  • Non-surgical option: Avoids incisions and general anesthesia associated with surgery.
  • Targeted fat reduction: Specifically addresses submental fat for a more sculpted profile.
  • Long-lasting results: Once destroyed, the targeted fat cells are eliminated permanently.

Kybella offers a safe and effective way to achieve a more defined jawline and enhance your facial contours.

Fast Treatments. Lasting Results. 

What is the Kybella procedure like?

The Kybella procedure is a relatively quick and well-tolerated in-office treatment. Here's what you can expect:

  1. Consultation: Our team will discuss your goals and medical history and assess whether Kybella is suitable for you.
  2. Numbing: A topical anesthetic may be applied to minimize discomfort during injection.
  3. Injection: Kybella is precisely injected into targeted areas under the chin using a fine needle. The number of injections and treatment sessions will vary depending on your individual needs.
  4. Results: You may experience some initial swelling and tenderness, but this typically subsides within a few days. While some improvement may be noticeable after the first session, multiple sessions spaced several weeks apart are usually required for optimal results.

The entire Kybella procedure typically takes about an hour.

All About Aftercare 

Kybella Recovery

While Kybella itself requires minimal downtime, following proper aftercare instructions is crucial for optimizing your results and comfort:

  • Swelling and tenderness: Following the procedure, you may experience some swelling, redness, and tenderness in the treated area. This usually subsides within a few days to a week. To reduce swelling, apply cold compresses to the area for short intervals.
  • Massage: Gently massaging the treated area a few times a day can help the Kybella distribute evenly and minimize swelling.
  • Pain management: Over-the-counter pain relievers can be used to manage any discomfort.
  • Avoid strenuous activity: Avoid strenuous exercise or activities that could irritate the treatment area for 24-48 hours.
  • Maintain good posture: Maintaining good posture helps prevent further fat accumulation under the chin.

By following these simple aftercare tips, you can ensure a smooth recovery and optimal results from your Kybella treatment.

Optimizing Your Results 

Kybella Results

Kybella offers a gradual approach to achieving a sculpted jawline. Here's what you can expect regarding results:

  • Initial improvement: You may notice some subtle improvement in chin definition within a few weeks of the first session.
  • Gradual progress: As your body metabolizes the destroyed fat cells, results become more noticeable with each treatment session.
  • Multiple sessions: To achieve optimal results, most patients require two to four Kybella sessions spaced several weeks apart. The exact number of sessions will depend on the amount of submental fat present.
  • Long-lasting results: Once the fat cells are destroyed, they are gone permanently. Kybella improves your jawline definition, providing you maintain a stable weight.

Enjoy the confidence of a sculpted profile! Kybella can help you achieve a defined jawline and a more harmonious facial appearance.
