Kybella: The Permanent Solution to Double Chin

Let’s start by saying, we are all our own worst critics and we tend to have things we don’t love about ourselves. Whether it’s looking in the mirror each day or at candid photos from your girl’s weekend, if your eyes are immediately drawn to the extra skin visible under your chin, you’re probably wondering if there’s anything you can do about it. 

Consider scheduling a consultation appointment for Kybella at santāl skin!

What is Kybella? 

Kybella is a non-surgical injectable cosmetic treatment that can reduce excess fat under the chin, usually referred to as a “double chin.” It can also be used in a few other areas like the jowls, the back of the arms, and bra lines. It is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, which when injected can metabolize fat cells.

How does it work?

When deoxycholic acid (Kybella’s main ingredient) occurs in the body, it functions as a bile acid used to absorb fat. Kybella takes that method of action and applies it to a targeted area. Once it’s injected into the area of concern, the deoxycholic acid gets to work, destroying fat cells and inhibiting their ability to store fat.

Prepping For Kybella

1) Schedule a consultation at santāl skin. One of our professionals will discuss at length your medical history, and discuss any bleeding issues, trouble swallowing, or past procedures on the neck, chin, or face. They will also assess the area to determine if it is fat tissue or loose skin. This step is the most important so we can determine whether or not you are a candidate and would see a good result with Kybella. It also helps to minimize the risk of adverse outcomes.

2) It’s important to consider any weight loss measures you may be taking at the present time. We recommend patients on a weight loss journey to be within 5-10 pounds of their goal weight prior to being treated with Kybella. Not only will you see optimal results, but you will also potentially save $$.

3) Schedule your appointment at least 3-4 weeks prior to any big event due to lasting side effects of this treatment. Kybella causes swelling of the treated area that typically returns to baseline within 2 weeks.
