Kybella is an injectable medication used for the treatment of submental fullness, commonly known as a “double chin.” It contains deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.
When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella works by destroying the fat cells, causing them to be gradually metabolized and eliminated by the body. This process leads to a reduction in the appearance of submental fat and an improvement in the contour of the chin and jawline.
Kybella is a non-surgical alternative to procedures like liposuction or neck lift surgery for individuals who want to address the excess fat under their chin. It is typically administered in a series of treatments, with multiple injections spaced several weeks apart. The exact number of treatments required varies depending on the individual and the desired results.
Commonly used for the reduction of fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA is a nonsurgical, injectable, submental fat treatment for areas beneath the jaw.
Even though everybody else in your family has to mask their genetic double chin, it does not mean you will. Schedule a consultation with our staff to learn more about the revolutionary KYBELLA treatments at Wellness Co. in Zeeland, MI. Erase submental fat so you can have a well-defined jawline today.
Just a bit of extra fat in the upper throat area will cause the presence of a “double chin” that is bothersome to both women and men. The additional pockets of fat under the chin (or the submental area) can be caused by weight fluctuations, aging, or genetics that lead to a softer jawline and chin for an undefined profile. Our team in Zeeland, MI is proud to offer a new method to get rid of neck fat. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), KYBELLA is the first nonsurgical option for submental fat. The active ingredient in KYBELLA is a synthetically made version of deoxycholic acid (DA), which works similarly to the body’s natural DA to dissolve and absorb fat cells. After it is injected beneath the chin, you can see a noticeable reduction in the volume of fat. When the fat is removed, the cells will not return so you can enjoy your new, slimmer neck and strong jawline for years to come.
Our team of highly trained technicians will usually apply a numbing gel to the treatment area, if requested, after the skin has been cleansed. The injection takes about 15 minutes, which includes several small injections into the submental area. Some patients may only need a single treatment to reach their desired goal while others may require a few more treatments spaced 3 – 4 weeks apart at Wellness Co. KYBELLA doesn’t need general anesthesia so you are able to leave our office when you are ready to resume your usual activities. You may experience short-term numbness, bruising, or swelling below your chin, but this should not last more than a couple of days. Contact Wellness Co. right away if you are noticing any unusual side effects, such as facial muscle weakness, difficulty swallowing, or if your smile is uneven. While the fat that is destroyed does not regenerate, the cells left over can grow larger so you need to keep a stable weight after your KYBELLA treatments to prevent new pockets of fat from developing. Optimal results after this treatment leave your neck looking tighter and slimmer and your neckline will be more defined.
