There’s finally an effective, nonsurgical solution to your stubborn fat under the chin. With Kybella, you can improve your submental fullness to achieve a more defined chin and jawline, all without incisions or downtime. Ask Dr. DiFrancesco if Kybella is right for you.
What is Kybella?
Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved prescription nonsurgical treatment for the appearance of a “double chin,” also known as submental fullness. The formula is composed of synthetic deoxycholic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body and aids in the breakdown of fat. When placed under the chin, Kybella destroys fat cells, resulting in reduced fullness.
During your treatment with Dr. DiFrancesco in our Atlanta med spa, your chin will be numbed with a topical anesthetic. The formula will then be placed in several points under the chin. This process will only take about 10-20 minutes to complete. While one treatment might be enough for some patients, multiple sessions are typically required for optimal results.
If you are over the age of 18 and are bothered by stubborn fat under your chin, Kybella might be right for you. Stubborn fat can accumulate here due to age, weight gain, or genetic factors. For the best results, you should be within your ideal weight range before considering Kybella. Stubborn fat under the chin can be especially difficult to treat with exercise alone, so if you still suffer from a double chin despite diet and exercise, talk with Dr. DiFrancesco about Kybella.
While there is no required downtime after treatment with Kybella, you might experience some swelling, numbness, and bruising at the injection sites. This should diminish over the next several days. You should avoid strenuous activity during this time to avoid excess swelling. The results of Kybella are not instant, as your body needs time to break down and eliminate the treated fat cells.
After optimal treatment sessions, you can enjoy a noticeable reduction in fat under the chin that is long-lasting. The destroyed fat cells cannot return, but your untreated fat cells can still expand with future weight gain. To ensure lasting success from your Kybella treatment, make sure you maintain a healthy weight through proper diet and exercise.
