We have the solution, FDA approved KYBELLA®. Up until now, chin liposuction has been the only tried and true treatment to remove that pesky chin fat. While chin liposuction can make a huge difference, it is surgery and involves some downtime (not to mention the dreaded compression garment). KYBELLA® is a fat-dissolving injection with much less downtime, and offers a non-surgical alternative to reducing that stubborn wattle.
KYBELLA® is a liquid that is injected through a very tiny needle into targeted areas underneath the chin. The liquid immediately disrupts fat cells and then the body removes the fat cells over the course of days to a few weeks. The fat cells do not return.
The concept for KYBELLA® came from research into bile. Yes, bile, which is the liquid produced in your gallbladder to breakdown dietary fats that you consume. Using these concepts researchers designed and produced a purified form called KYBELLA®.
The treatment is quick and effective in the majority of patients, with swelling resolving from the treatment in 5 to 7 days in the majority of patients. Most patients will require 2 to 4 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart. KYBELLA® comes in vials and the number of vials a patients needs is different for each patient. The number of vials depends on the amount and size of the double chin. Most patients will require 2-4 vials per treatment, with less vials needed in subsequent treatments (in most patients) because of the reduction of fat from the previous treatments.
Since the treatment is highly targeted and destroys all the fat in the area, it makes it virtually impossible for the fat cells to re-accumulate. However, if you gain a lot of weight after the procedure, then it can affect the results. Therefore, it is essential that you follow a healthy diet and exercise regimen if you want the results to last.
KYBELLA® takes considerable skill to inject it the right way, so it’s best to visit an injector with plenty of experience in administration of the treatment. At Bisou Beuty Lab, our aesthetic nurse practitioner knows the proper way to administer KYBELLA®. We help numerous patients safely achieve incredible results.
