INJECTIONS FOR CHIN FAT & DOUBLE CHINS
Kybella® is an injectable substance called cholanoic acid which destroys fat cells under the chin to improve the way your face looks. Our office is now offering this treatment for your double chin. Recently approved by the FDA, Kybella® (deoxycholic acid) injection, contours and improves the appearance of moderate to severe submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin.”
Submental fullness can impact a broad range of adults, including both men and women, and can be influenced by several factors such as aging, genetics and weight gain and is often resistant to diet and exercise alone. According to a survey by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, nearly as many consumers are bothered by submental fullness (68%) as by lines and wrinkles around the eyes (71%).
When injected into subcutaneous fat, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. You will notice a difference within 1-2 months after having the treatment.
The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness and formation of small areas of firmness around the treatment area, you can expect to be fully recovered within 2 days.
Kybella® treatments have many benefits. The technique is minimally invasive. It consists of a series of small injections under the chin. The results are intended to be permanent. Once fat cells are destroyed, your body cannot produce new fat cells. The procedure is fast. Once the quick procedure is complete, there is practically no downtime before you can return to your regular activities. The injectable may help promote a more youthful appearance. Benefits and results of this injectable treatment will vary for each individual and their goals.
Kybella® is the right choice for many people who are looking to improve their appearance. If you fit into any of the following categories, you may want to look into it. You are unhappy or self-conscious about the fat that is under your chin. You feel like the fat under your chin makes you look older and heavier than you are. You are not interested in having surgery. The fullness under your chin does not go away despite eating well and exercising. It is important to remember this injectable does not offer any skin tightening benefits.
Kybella® is an FDA-approved treatment that is safe and effective when administered by an experienced, qualified medical practitioner such as Annamarie Salyer FNP-C. Kybella® contains only natural ingredients, so allergic reactions are rare, but please discuss any history of allergies and other medical conditions with Annamarie prior to treatment. Kybella® treatments should be avoided if the patient is on any medication that could cause blood clotting, is under the age of 18 or pregnant or soon-to-be pregnant. As with any treatment, please inform your practitioner if you have received any other injections recently and if you are taking any medications.
Your practitioner may administer local anesthesia to the treatment areas to alleviate any possible discomfort. The Kybella® treatment takes approximately 15 to 20 minutes, and is administered via very fine, small gauge needle into the fat under your chin at each treatment session. You and your practitioner will customize your Kybella® treatment based on the amount of submental fullness you have and your treatment goals. Together, you will decide the treatment plan that’s right for you.
Many patients treated with Kybella® experience visible contouring of their chin profile in 2 to 4 treatments. Some people require up to 6 treatments in order to achieve results. Once your chin profile has improved, you may not need to be treated with Kybella® again.
Your health insurance provider may not cover an elective cosmetic treatment such as Kybella®, but Bion Medical Spa’s convenient Indianapolis office offers patients the option of flexibility in payment options by providing easy financing methods. The office also accepts cash and credit cards as forms of payment.
