Kybella: Double Chin Removal in Brooklyn

Do you feel self-conscious when looking at your profile? Do you try to stretch your neck and lift your head when posing for photos? Do you feel that your chin makes you look heavier and older than you really are? Are you losing that youthful contour and forming jowl and double chin? If you said yes to any of these questions, Kybella® may be the perfect option for you. 

What is Kybella? 

Kybella is a non-surgical cosmetic injectable treatment that is used to reduce the appearance of double chin. No incisions are required, the injections are quick, and there’s usually little to no downtime needed.

Double chin removal in Brooklyn is a very safe alternative to surgery or liposuction, and while it does not produce same results as surgery, it is very effective. In clinical trials, over 82% of treated patients reported a high satisfaction rate, and as reported by RealSelf.com, 72% of patients were satisfied with results and feel that the treatment is “worth it”.

How Kybella works

Kybella is made from a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid (bile acid that is naturally produced by our body). When working within the body, deoxycholic acid helps absorb fat from food. When Kybella is injected into targeted areas, it destroys the fat cells in those areas, making it impossible for fat to be stored there ever again. The remnant cells and fat are then metabolized by the body over the next few weeks, and they exit the body through the lymphatic system.

Before & After

What to expect during a Kybella treatment 

We ask that you please schedule your Kybella double chin removal in Brooklyn a few months before any major event, since you may need more than one treatment and it takes a few weeks to see the results. Do not wear makeup or lotion to your appointment, and avoid any ibuprofen, aspirin, or other blood thinning medication for two weeks prior to your treatment date to help lessen bruising. Your skin will be cleansed, and a topical numbing cream will be applied to help ease any discomfort during the injections. About 10 to 50 injections will be administered in the under-chin area.

This takes about ten minutes. While the numbing cream helps, you may feel some pressure and/or a slight burning sensation as the chemical works. After the injections, your under-chin area will be dressed with a compression bandage.

The number of treatment sessions needed will be different for each patient. Those who are on the heavy side or are genetically predisposed to a double chin may require up to six Kybella treatments, but the average number is 2 to 4 treatments. These sessions are usually scheduled at least a month apart.

Results 

Swelling hits its peak about 24 hours following treatment. Once it has subsided, the targeted fat cells are permanently destroyed, and will not return. Although Kybella is very effective, results are gradual and can take multiple treatments to be achieved. While one treatment is enough for some patients, most require two or more treatments to achieve the desired results. During your consultation, we will discuss your goals and the time it will take to get there.

Side effects

Some common side effects include burning, swelling, bruising, redness, and numbness in the area. Any discomfort, swelling, and redness tend to resolve in a day or two. Bruising may last for a week or two.
