KYBELLA® “Double Chin” Treatment
Kybella is a prescription medication used as a permanent solution to improve the appearance of submental fat below the chin, jowls, bra-fat and other pesky small areas of fat or goodness. Sometimes diet and exercise alone may not help these areas, which can be caused by more than just weight. This treatment is completely tailored to each individual, as everyone’s needs are different.
The active ingredient in Kybella, deoxycholic acid, is a molecule that is found naturally in the body to help break down fat. When injected into the submental fat, Kybella breaks down fat cells and over time those cells are cleared away through the natural processes of your body with permanent reduction.
Before Kybella treatment, one of our Kybella specialists will go through a thorough consult with you to make sure you are a candidate and create a tailored treatment for you. Before and after pictures will be taken to track the change in your profile line throughout your treatments.
Most patients need more than one treatment, depending on the amount of submental fat around the area treated and your desired goals. Each treatment will be at least one month apart from each other. The injection process may take between 15 to 20 minutes. After your Kybella treatment some people may experience swelling, bruising, or numbness under the chin, these reactions are normal.
You can expect to have anywhere from 3-14 days of swelling, and/or numbness, depending on the amount injected. Some clients have experienced minimal bruising at the injection sites.
We are unique at Seychelles offering complimentary Z Wave treatments after your Kybella treatments. This helps to destroy the remaining fat cells and break them up easier and quicker so you can release the dead fat cells naturally at a faster pace.
