4 Fast Facts About Kybella
When we think of injectable treatments, we often think of Botox or injectable dermal fillers like Juvederm or Restylane. But at Alluring Image, considered to be the best medical spa Delray Beach has to offer, they specialize in a number of other injectable treatments, including the highly effective method of submental chin fat reduction known as Kybella! Kybella has revolutionized the world of aesthetic medicine, offering a non-surgical solution to a common concern – the double chin. At Alluring Image Medspa & Wellness, they’ve been able to help countless patients, both men and women, to create a more well-defined and sculpted jawline – reducing unwanted submental chin fat, without the need for unwanted surgery. Despite how effective the treatment is though, many patients have little to no idea how it works. In this article, we will be going over a few fast facts about Kybella, and how it works so well!
How Does Kybella Work?
Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that 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 disrupts the fat cells, causing them to break down and be metabolized by the body. This process gradually eliminates the double chin and unwanted submental fat, revealing a more contoured and youthful chin area, while the unwanted fat is slowly released by the body as waste.
Kybella is Super Effective!
From clinical trials to real-world experiences, researchers have demonstrated the highly effective results of Kybella in reducing submental fullness, most often known as a double chin. Using a series of Kybella injections, typically spaced several weeks apart, can significantly improve the appearance of the chin and neck area. Most patients notice visible results after two to four treatments, with a noticeable reduction in the fat under the chin – revealing the inner, more youthful contours we might not have seen in years. These types of results would take months, if not years to achieve with regular diet and exercise.
Non-Surgical with Minimal Downtime
One of the main reasons why Kybella has become a favorite of many patients at Alluring Image, is because it is a non-surgical alternative to invasive procedures like liposuction or neck lift surgery. The treatment is performed in-office and does not require general anesthesia. Each session lasts approximately 15 to 20 minutes, making it a convenient option for individuals with busy schedules. Following the treatment, patients experience very mild side effects, including light swelling, bruising, or numbness in the treatment area, but these side effects are temporary and generally resolve within a few days.
Safe with Long-lasting Results
With years of trials and research, Kybella has been extensively studied and proven to be safe and well-tolerated when the treatment is performed by a qualified healthcare professional, like the injectors at Alluring Image. As the fat cells targeted by Kybella are destroyed and naturally metabolized by the body, the results are permanent – this is because the fat cells themselves aren’t just reduced in size, but are destroyed permanently. Once the patient achieves their desired results, they typically don’t need many follow-ups, if any at all! For most patients the results last a lifetime – especially with proper weight management protocols in place.
