What Is Kybella?
Patients struggling with submental fat in the neck area, better known as a “double chin,” will be thrilled to learn of the benefits of Kybella. The primary ingredient in this FDA-approved treatment for submental fat reduction is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid occurs naturally in the human body and is partially responsible for the breaking down and absorption of fat. When injected under the chin, this treatment can effectively contour your face, giving you a beautiful profile. Our Kybella injections typically take 30 minutes to administer and start at $599.00.
How Does Kybella Work?
When injected into the area beneath the chin, the synthetic deoxycholic acid in Kybella goes to work, destroying submental fat cells for good and resulting in a significant diminishing of fullness in the chin area.
Once Kybella destroys these fat cells, they can never return. However, other fat cells can still grow larger in the area, so maintaining a healthy diet and exercise program is essential even after the treatment.
What Is Kybella Treatment at Bloom Med Spa Like?
If you have a stubborn double chin that will not go away no matter what you try, just contact Bloom Med Spa for an appointment. Because of its location, submental fat is very difficult if not impossible to eliminate through normal means. Therefore, Kybella may be just what you need.
When you visit our center, Dr. Bloom will administer a series of Kybella injections under your chin as needed. The entire process should not take more than 20 minutes. The needles used for administering this treatment will be fine-tipped and should not cause much discomfort. However, a topical anesthetic may be offered if needed.
Results of Kybella Injections
For best results, about six treatments spaced at one month apart are recommended. After each treatment session, you may experience some numbness, bruising, or swelling which should be gone in no more than three days or so. You should usually see the results, in the form of a firmer, more profile-appropriate, younger-looking chin after about 3-6 treatments.
