Kybella as a Non-Surgical Solution for Submental Fullness

Kybella as a Non-Surgical Solution for Submental Fullness

Say goodbye to the stubborn fat beneath your chin, commonly known as a double chin. Traditional diet and exercise may not provide the desired results, but there’s a revolutionary solution called Kybella

But how does it work? What benefits can it provide you? How can it help you achieve your goal? Let’s dive into this article and discover the answers to these questions. 

What is Kybella?

Unlike surgical procedures like liposuction, Kybella is a non-surgical treatment approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. It’s a quick procedure, taking around 30 minutes or less, and it can be done right here at the Skin Design Aesthetics office. 

This injectable treatment enhances your facial profile without surgery, potentially giving you permanent results. As mentioned above, it reduces excess fat under the chin and in the upper neck area, also known as submental fullness. 

It contains a natural molecule called deoxycholic acid, which is already present in the human body and helps break down dietary fat. When Kybella is injected, it targets and destroys the excess fat cells. The body then naturally eliminates these fat cells over time.

What are the Benefits of Kybella?

The treatment itself has several advantages like the following:

  • Minimal treatment time.
  • No need for surgery.
  • Little to no downtime.
  • Long-lasting results.
  • Reduction of excess fat under the chin.

During your initial consultation with us here at Skin Design Aesthetics, we will address any concerns or questions and determine if Kybella is the right choice for you.

Kybella For Submental Fullness

Kybella is a special kind of injection that the FDA approves. As we mentioned, this injection is used to get rid of fat cells, especially in the area under your chin, often known as a ‘double chin.’ 

It uses deoxycholic acid, which your body typically makes to help break down fats. When put into the area under your chin, it helps destroy the fat cells. Once these fat cells are gone, they can’t return, meaning your double chin is gone for good!

Usually, people need between 2 and 4 Kybella injections to see the best results. These are generally given about a month to a half apart. If you’ve been struggling with a double chin, Kybella is the easy and effective solution you’ve been searching for.

But how do you “exactly” use Kybella for better goals? Let’s see the off-label uses of this treatment here at Skin Design Aesthetics. 

  • Bra bulges
  • Back fat
  • Lower belly bulges
  • Armpit bulges
  • Jowls
  • Around the jawline area
  • Lower buttocks fatty folds (banana rolls)
  • Inner knee fat

Comparing Kybella to Other Double Chin Treatments

When considering ways to address a double chin, comparing the options available is helpful. Let’s look at how Kybella measures up against two other popular methods: liposuction and CoolSculpting.

Kybella vs. Liposuction

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes fat from specific body areas, including under the chin. While liposuction can be very effective, it requires local or general anesthesia, has a risk of surgical complications, and requires a recovery period.

On the other hand, Kybella is a non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure. It involves injections directly into the fat under the chin, causing the fat cells to break down and be naturally eliminated by the body. 

While it may require multiple sessions to achieve the desired result, the side effects are typically minor, like swelling or bruising, and little to no downtime.

If you’re looking for a non-surgical option, Kybella is the better choice. But suppose you’re after immediate, dramatic results and are okay with the risks and recovery time. In that case, liposuction might be more up your alley.

Kybella vs. CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is another non-surgical treatment that eliminates fat cells by freezing them. This treatment can also be used for the submental area. It’s painless and involves little to no downtime, similar to Kybella.

The main difference is in how the fat cells are eliminated. With CoolSculpting, the cells are frozen and then naturally eliminated by the body. With Kybella, deoxycholic acid breaks down the fat cells before the body removes them. 

The results of both treatments are permanent, but Kybella may require fewer sessions to achieve the desired outcome. Regarding comfort, some people find Kybella injections more comfortable than the cold sensation of CoolSculpting. But, this can vary between individuals.

What About Side Effects from Kybella?

Just like after any injection, you might notice a bit of swelling, redness, or even some tiny bruises where Kybella was injected. But don’t worry; these usually go away within a few days. 

The good news is there’s no big recovery time with Kybella. Most folks return to their regular daily stuff in a day or two.

How Long Will Kybella Results Stick Around?

One of the big wins with Kybella is how long it lasts. Once you’ve had your treatments, you don’t need to keep returning for more to keep your results. But remember, staying healthy with good food choices and regular exercise can help ensure your Kybella results remain for a long time – we’re talking decades here!

How Much Does Kybella Treatment Cost?

The total cost of Kybella will be calculated based on your customized treatment plan. Each patient’s treatment plan differs depending on the number of Kybella treatment sessions and the number of injections necessary for the best results. 

Typically, Kybella ranges from about $1,200 to $1,800. But, as noted above, this procedure is customized for each patient, and the total price will ultimately depend on your individual needs. 

Bottom Line

If you’re ready to say goodbye to that stubborn double chin but want to skip the surgery, Kybella is a fantastic choice. This nifty little injection works like your body’s natural fat-breaker and helps you shed that unwanted under-chin fat. 

You can see a big difference with a few quick sessions and minimal downtime. But remember, everyone, ‘s different, so be sure to chat with your healthcare provider to see if Kybella is the right fit for you!
