We each hold and carry fat differently. For many, excess fat manifests itself as a double chin. At About Faces, we are excited to announce that we now offer Kybella, a non-invasive, injectable treatment that targets and destroys fat that is stored under the chin and in the neck area. Approved this past April, Kybellas release has been highly anticipatedâboth by cosmetic surgeons and patients alike. With little downtime, non-invasive Kybella promises to give you the slim and sculpted chin and jawline you desire.
An Exciting New Treatment
The first of its kind Kybella is the first non-surgical injectable treatment to stimulate fat reduction. Kybella is a formulation of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule responsible for breaking down and absorbing fat. When injected, Kybella permanently destroys fat cells, targeting and liquefying subcutaneous fat. Over time, the destroyed fat cells will be eliminated naturally from your body. Once treated, fat cells no longer accumulate and store fat giving you a coveted toned and contoured jawline. Another benefit! Whereas other treatments can leave the skin around the chin and neck loose and hanging, Kybella stimulates local collagen productionâwhich, in turn, shrinks and tightens skin.
Kybella is perfect for patients with moderate to severe facial fullness who desire a stronger jaw line, but are hesitant to undergo a more invasive surgery. In the past, only highly invasive, surgical procedures have been able to rid the face of submental fat. Completed as a series, the treatments are spaced one month apart. At 80%, the majority of patients see results in as little as two to four treatments while a small amount of patients require the full series of six. Each treatment lasts approximately 15 to 20 minutes. With relatively no downtime or side effects, you are free to return to your day immediately following your Kybella treatment.
