Check this blog post for more details on how this treatment can help you!

Understanding Kybella: Your Answer to Submental Fullness

No one should have to live with a double chin or extra, unwanted under-chin fat. Kybella is an injectable treatment specifically crafted to tackle submental fullness — the accumulation of fat cells under your chin often linked to genetics. 

If you’re yearning for a more contoured profile, Kybella could be the answer. We proudly provide Kybella at Method Aesthetics Scottsdale, offering our patients a non-surgical option to refine their profile and self-confidence.

Kybella is a safe and highly effective solution. It’s the only FDA-approved injectable treatment for adults clinically validated to destroy the fat cells under the chin, resulting in a gradually improved profile.

The Science Behind Kybella

Kybella’s main ingredient is deoxycholic acid, a molecule naturally produced by your body to break down fat. The synthetic deoxycholic acid used in Kybella treatments acts on the fat cells underneath your chin, effectively destroying them.

The beauty of Kybella lies in its permanence – once the cells are destroyed, they lose their fat-storing capacity forever. To maintain the results of Kybella, a healthy diet and regular exercise are recommended to prevent the formation of new fat cells.

Unraveling the Magic of Deoxycholic Acid

At the heart of Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule used to break down dietary fat. As we mentioned, when a synthetic version of this compound goes into the fat cells under your chin, these cells are effectively destroyed.

The Advantages and Disadvantages of Kybella

One of the significant advantages of Kybella is its non-surgical nature, allowing you to enhance your profile without going under the knife. 

The procedure is quick, usually completed within 5 minutes, and the results are permanent. The treatment uses a substance naturally found in the body and’s generally well-tolerated.

However, like all treatments, Kybella comes with a few downsides. The most common ones include swelling, bruising, and temporary numbness in the treated area post-procedure. 

Additionally, multiple sessions are often required to achieve the desired result, and the full effect isn’t immediately apparent—it usually takes around six weeks to see the transformation.

What to Expect During and After Your Kybella Treatment

During your Kybella treatment, we administer small injections to precise locations under your chin. The procedure, which only takes about 5 minutes, may cause a temporary burning sensation that fades within minutes.

Post-treatment, expect some swelling that may last 1-2 weeks, potential bruising, and temporary numbness in the treated area. The results of your treatment become visible after approximately six weeks.

To achieve the desired profile, patients typically require 2 to 4 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart. Our team is happy to work with your needs and design a personalized treatment plan only for your needs.

Potential Risks of Kybella

While Kybella is a safe and FDA-approved treatment, potential risks and side effects shouldn’t be overlooked. Some patients might experience more severe bruising, pain at the injection site, difficulty swallowing, or facial muscle weakness. 

Although rare, there’s also a risk of nerve injury in the jaw. A comprehensive discussion with your healthcare provider is crucial to knowing the risks associated with Kybella.

Is Kybella Right for You?

Kybella is an excellent option for individuals bothered by the fat under their chin and wish for 

a more contoured profile. It’s particularly suited for those looking for a non-surgical solution. 

However, Kybella is only for some. It’s not recommended for individuals with an active infection in the treatment area, pregnant or breastfeeding women, or those with difficulty swallowing. 

Always consult a healthcare provider to evaluate whether Kybella is the most suitable solution for your aesthetic goals.

Is Kybella Worth it for Losing Double Chin?

The answer largely depends on your personal goals, budget, and tolerance for temporary discomfort. The first thing to consider is your goal. 

If you’re looking for a non-surgical treatment to help reduce moderate to severe fat below the chin, then Kybella® could be a great option. 

The results are permanent and noticeable, enhancing your profile. However, it’s worth noting that multiple treatments may be needed, with most patients requiring 2-4 sessions.

Financially speaking, Kybella is less expensive than surgical options such as liposuction or neck lift surgery. Yet, the total cost can add up, given that multiple sessions might be required to achieve the desired results. 

It would help if you also considered the possible side effects, such as swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and hardness in the treatment area. These are typically short-lived and resolve on their own.

Besides, the value of Kybella goes beyond the physical. A double chin can affect more than just your appearance—it can also impact your self-esteem and confidence. 

The psychological boost from enhancing your appearance and feeling more comfortable in your skin can make the treatment worthwhile for many people.

So, Deciding if Kybella is worth it for losing a double chin is a personal decision. Again, working for your goals and concerns with a qualified provider who can help guide your decision and ensure that Kybella is the right fit for you is essential.
