Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin by physically destroying fat cells. Kybella (deoxycholic acid) is a manmade form of a substance your body makes that helps absorb fats. Deoxycholic acid works by destroying fat cells, contouring and reducing the appearance of a double chin allowing patients to see dramatic results.
A complimentary consultation will determine if Kybella is an appropriate option for you and customize your treatment plan. The number of treatments you will need based is based on your desired chin profile. Most people will need 2 to 4 Kybella treatments to get full correction, we will be able to let you know how many treatments you will likely need. Treatments are usually spaced 6 to 8 weeks apart.
At Purity Wellness Center most Kybella patients will be in and out of our office shortly with most treatments taking around 60 minutes. Kybella is injected in a specific manner to avoid salivary glands, muscles, lymph nodes and the marginal mandibular nerve. We will carefully mark the area to be injected with a skin marking pencil to make certain that Kybella is injected into the correct area. The next step is having the temporary tattoo grid applied to the treatment area, which is easily removed post-procedure. We will use a tiny needle to inject the Kybella into specific points in the treatment area. The tattoo is then washed off and you are ready to go about your day!
Kybella is a non-invasive procedure with a relatively fast recovery time. Ice packs and Acetaminophen will relieve swelling and redness patients may experience at the injection sites. Typical recovery time is two to four days. The ideal time to schedule this procedure is at least 2 weeks before a big event.
Kybella can be used on any patient. However, to decide which anti-aging treatment is best for a particular patient, it is necessary to meet with one of our Medical professionals for a free consultation to discuss all possible methods of skin rejuvenation and treatment.
