Having a double chin can be self-conscious area, even if you follow a healthy diet and get plenty of exercise. A double chin is often genetic, and it typically requires more than an active lifestyle to restore a youthful jawline, free from excess fat. Fortunately, at Pure Beauty Medical Spa, we provide Kybella injections, a non-surgical solution for a double chin.
What is Kybella? Does it Work?
Kybella is a double chin injection treatment that melts away submental (under chin) fat while leaving the surrounding tissues unharmed. Kybella is a long-lasting treatment for double chin fat, as the fat cells affected by the injections will be gone forever. This innovative injectable product delivers real-world results, as it affects only the unwanted fat cells. After your treatment of Kybella in Newport Beach, the fat cells affected will be slowly shed by your body, naturally.
What is the Secret Behind Kybella?
Kybella’s active ingredient is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring stomach acid that helps break down and absorb fat during digestion. When injected into the double chin area, it targets fat cells to contour the neck and help restore a more youthful, sculpted jawline by destroying under-chin fat. Some of our younger patients have noticed lifted and tightened skin as well with Kybella in Rancho Santa Margarita.
Should I Try Kybella for My Double Chin?
No special preparation is required before you undergo Kybella injections. Our injection expert can advise you whether this treatment is right for you. For larger quantities of under-chin fat, you may choose to undergo a series of Kybella treatments to achieve your goal.
Your Kybella Journey – What to Expect?
Our Kybella injections at Pure Beauty Medical Spa are performed by a formally trained medical professional. For many people, three to four 30-minute injection sessions will achieve optimal results, but this varies, person to person. Kybella treatments require a series of injections in a grid pattern into the double chin fat. We perform our treatments of Kybella in Newport Beach and Rancho Santa Margarita with ultimate precision and care and do all we can to make your experience painless and positive.
How Long Does it Take for Kybella to Work?
You’ll begin to see a significant reduction in your double chin at about eight to twelve weeks after your last injection. Results can last for a long time, as the destroyed fat cells are gone forever. As long as you maintain a healthy weight, you should enjoy your slimmed facial profile for the long term.
After Your Injections – What Are the Side Effects?
You might experience slight discomfort (burning and tingling) for 30 minutes immediately following treatment. Some patients also experience swelling, numbness, bruising, and tenderness to touch after treatment. These side effects do not last long and are less and less at each subsequent treatment. If you experience any discomfort, it is easily handled by an over-the-counter pain reliever like ibuprofen.
