Experience the benefits of Kybella at Kaua’i Medspa in Kaua’i, HI.
Kybella is a non-surgical injectable procedure created to target and reduce submental fat, commonly known as the “double chin.” Ideal for individuals looking to refine their chin profile without undergoing invasive surgery, Kybella offers a minimally invasive solution. The results are usually visible within four to six weeks of treatment, with the outcome revealing a more contoured chin. The effects of Kybella are long-lasting, as fat cells are permanently destroyed, making them incapable of re-storing fat.
Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable treatment designed to dissolve submental fat, commonly called a “double chin.” The treatment contains a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, a molecule naturally present in the body that aids in fat absorption.
By injecting Kybella into the submental fat below the chin, fat cells are destroyed. Over time, the body processes and eliminates these destroyed cells, leading to a reduced fat layer and a more defined chin contour. The results of Kybella will last a long time because, after the fat cells are eliminated, they no longer have the ability to store or gather fat.
Individuals with moderate to severe submental fullness or double chin who prefer a non-surgical solution are ideal candidates for Kybella.
Most patients notice visible improvements within 4 to 6 weeks after their Kybella treatment.
The results from Kybella are long-lasting. As soon as fat cells are destroyed, they can no longer store or accumulate fat.
There may be swelling, bruising, or numbness under the chin in some patients, but these side effects usually last only a few days. There’s minimal downtime, and most individuals return to regular activities shortly after treatment.
To reduce the likelihood of bruising, avoid taking anti-inflammatory drugs or blood thinners before the treatment. After the treatment, apply cold compresses to minimize swelling and avoid strenuous activity for 24 hours.
During the treatment, small injections will be administered under the chin. The process is quick, usually taking about 20 to 30 minutes, and may involve some mild discomfort.
