Hiding from the camera and finding the perfect angle doesn’t have to be a lifestyle that you’re accustomed to! Even after undergoing diet and fitness programs, you may find that submental fullness is the last to go and the hardest to get rid of. Get the perfect profile in Seguin, near San Antonio, with Kybella- the injectable treatment for double chin! This treatment is FDA approved and should be prescribed by a healthcare professional, much like our staff.
Kybella is made up of deoxycholic acid- a metabolic acid that dissolves fat so that the intestines can absorb it. This means that Kybella literally melts the fat away beneath the chin. Once the deoxycholic acid performs its job of breaking down the fat cells, your body will be able to dispose the useless cells with other bodily waste- through the intestines. This process occurs gradually over time and is not immediate. Once the fat cells are dissolved, they can no longer function or return. This does not prevent you from accumulating new fat cells, but it’s a great solution for getting rid of an existing double chin.
The treatment process is time efficient and can be completed during a lunch break. There is little to no downtime or inconvenience with Kybella injections. Patients who receive these injections report feeling little to no pain or discomfort. You may receive lidocaine, a topical numbing agent, or ice prior to the start of the treatment if you are nervous or wary of pain.
The duration of your appointment, as well as the amount of injections that are administered, depend upon your unique treatment plan (which can be discussed in a consultation) and your safety (meaning an excessive amount will not be administered at once). Appointments generally last anywhere from 15 to 40 minutes. It’s common for patients to receive two or more treatments if they are seeking dramatic results.
Results of deoxycholic acid injections, or Kybella, are gradual. Patients can continue to observe physical alterations up to two months following the initial treatment. While you may notice a difference in appearance as early as two weeks after your appointment, the results will be more dramatic after a month or more. Because the fat cells cannot be revived and exit the body, the results from Kybella are permanent. Independent results may vary, so while one person’s results are dramatic and noticeable soon after treatment, another person may have less dramatic results that take a little longer to observe.
