Double chin is one of the most common problems among adults. The fatty deposits under your chin affect your aesthetic appearance. If it makes you conscious, you may treat the condition by visiting our clinic. We will use Kybella to remove your double chin and enhance your jawline. Kybella is a prescription medication that we use in adults to improve the profile and appearance of the fat below the chin.
This cosmetic procedure has garnered immense popularity, and many people are opting for the same.
How Does This Treatment Work?
Synthetic deoxycholic acid is an active ingredient in Kybella. This naturally occurring molecule in your body helps break down and absorb dietary fat. When we inject Kybella under your chin, it destroys all the fat cells, thus reducing fat. Once eliminated, these cells do not store or accumulate fat. Thus, you do not require further treatment after you reach your desired goal.
How to Prepare for Kybella?
When you visit our clinic, we will discuss your requirements. We will ask you about your medical history and also take into account your previous cosmetic procedures, especially on the areas like chin, neck, and face. We will inquire if you are suffering from any bleeding problems or undergoing swallowing issues.
The procedure doesn't require elaborate preparation. We suggest you schedule the appointment before any major event. Wash your face properly before the session, and do not consume acetaminophen or ibuprofen.
How is the Procedure Performed?
Kybella is a non-invasive procedure. We will give multiple small injections under your chin, and the process completes in 30 minutes. The total number of injections depends upon the amount of fat under your chin. It also depends upon what kind of profile you want to have. Each of these injections is administered in a gap of one month. We advise you not to receive more than six injections of Kybella.
What to Expect?
The result of the treatment depends upon the amount of fat in your chin area. For instance, if your chin area doesn't have a lot of fat, you will notice the difference after 1-2 injections. On the contrary, if you have a significant amount of fat under your chin, you will spot the difference after 3-4 sittings.
Do not apply any cosmetics or makeup on the injected area for two days after the procedure. Avoid washing your face too much.
