A youthful, defined chin and jawline are part of classic facial beauty. Sadly, as you age, the jawline loses its definition, with fatty deposits developing beneath the chin. Kybella is a revolutionary non-surgical injectable treatment that can restore a jawline definition by melting away fat deposits below the chin.
There was a time when the only treatment available for jowls and a double chin was a lower facelift or liposuction, both of which required downtime to recover.
While a facelift is often appropriate for those with extreme skin laxity, Kybella is a groundbreaking treatment for submental fullness or a double chin. Kybella is the first injectable treatment of its kind, designed to treat submental fullness and restore the elegant contours of the lower face.
The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid.
Deoxycholic acid occurs naturally, used by the body to metabolize fat. When injected into the chin area, Kybella destroys the outer membrane of fat cells, leaving the remaining fluid vulnerable. Your body then naturally absorbs the cells through its natural processes. As the fat is absorbed, the double chin will slowly begin to disappear. Once the fat cells in the area are destroyed by Kybella, they do not return, and the results following treatment are long-lasting.
Kybella offers effective treatment for submental fullness without the need for surgery or liposuction. Treatment with Kybella has many benefits, including:
Treatment with Kybella is fast and easy, similar to treatment with other cosmetic injectables.
We can administer an anesthetic to ensure your comfort during treatment if you so desire. Then, we will administer between 20 and 30 small injections of Kybella in a grid pattern in the fatty zone.
The entire process is completed in less than 30 minutes, while you relax in our luxurious Houston facilities. Multiple treatment sessions may be needed to achieve optimal results. A series of four to six sessions may be required, performed at one-month intervals.
Since treatment with Kybella is non-invasive, you can return to your normal activities as soon as you leave our office. You may experience redness, swelling, bruising, or numbness at the treatment site. These reactions are normal and should subside within one week. Most patients feel comfortable attending social functions the same evening they receive treatment. As Kybella begins to dissolve your fat cells, you will start to see a new profile emerge. Your final results will be fully visible four to six weeks following your procedure.
