What to expect from a Kybella injection for double chin in Crown Point, IN
We all want to feel good about the way we look. With improvements in medical technology, cosmetic treatments have become popular ways for people to alter their appearances. Patients experiencing submental fullness may benefit from a Kybella injection for double chin removal. Dr. Garlapati and the team at Dermatology Center of Northwest Indiana offer the revolutionary Kybella injection for Crown Point, IN patients who wish to eliminate the excess fat under their chins.
Kybella is a form of deoxycholic acid which destroys fat cells. Produced by Allergan, the makers of Botox and Juvéderm, Kybella comes from a line of tried and true treatments for facial rejuvenation. As an injectable treatment, Kybella is FDA-approved to treat and reduce fullness under the chin. It destroys fat cells so patients no longer have double chins.
Benefits of Kybella include:
- Minimal downtime
What to expect
No longer do patients need to undergo surgery or unsuccessful laser treatments to get rid of a double chin. Kybella injections are performed in the office in just 15-20 minutes. However, more than one session may be necessary depending on the amount of fat to be treated. Patients may need one to six sessions until the desired look is achieved. The treatment is customized for each patient’s needs.
Prior to a Kybella injection, a topical or local anesthetic may be used. Immediately following the treatment, the patient may notice a warming sensation in the neck. Over a period of a few weeks, the fat is dissolved and eliminated by the body. Kybella permanently dissolves the fat cells. Improvement is noticeable six to eight weeks after the treatment. Additional treatments are spaced one month apart.
Side effects are limited and temporary. Swelling, bruising, and numbness are common following treatment. They will subside as the product begins working and breaking down fat cells. Remember, the results are permanent. Once fat cells are destroyed, they will not regrow in the same area.
