What is Kybella and How Can it Help with Double Chins?

  1. Kybella treatment

One day you look in the mirror and there it is. Out of nowhere. The dreaded double chin suddenly aging you and distorting your youthful profile. Or maybe you’ve recently lost weight and although you expected your double chin to disappear, it didn’t. Either way, that double chin is impossible for you to ignore, and you’re probably afraid everyone else will notice it, too, right?  That kind of self-consciousness can eat away at your confidence and diminish your sense attractiveness. And that is no good.  

Well, guess what? At San Diego Cosmetic Laser Clinic, we have a solution to get rid of that double chin for good. Surgery? No. Our solution is better than invasive, expensive, and time-consuming surgery. Liposuction? Nope. Better than that, too!It may be hard to believe you can say goodbye to that double chin and improve the contours of your face with a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment option, but you can – with Kybella.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an injectable treatment made with deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. The FDA approved Kybella for the treatment of moderate-to-severe submental fat (in other words, the “double chin”) in April 2015.

When Kybella is injected properly into submental fat, it destroys the fat cells. And the great news is that, once destroyed, those fat cells cannot store or accumulate fat.

So, yes, you can be rid of that double chin for good!

What to expect from a Kybella treatment

When you come in for your Kybella treatment, Dr. Parvin Mani will treat the area under your chin with a topical numbing cream. Once you are comfortable, she will then begin to administer the Kybella into the fat under your chin with multiple injections. The treatment will take approximately 15 minutes.

Most patients require between 2 and 4 treatment sessions (spaced at least one month apart) to achieve their desired results. At your initial consultation, Dr. Mani will determine the number of injections per session and the number of sessions necessary for your customized treatment plan.  

You will begin to see the results within 7 days or so of your first procedure, and the contours of your profile will continue to improve as you complete your series of treatments.

Want more good news? No downtime is necessary! You can resume your usual activities immediately following each session. You may experience some bruising and swelling in the treatment area, but it will subside after a day or two.
