Kybella (deoxycholic acid) is a groundbreaking new injection designed to reduce the appearance of a double chin by destroying the fat cells to give you a more contoured, youthful profile and a more chiselled, defined jaw line. Each patient must consult with a physician or healthcare provider to customize a treatment regimen that is designed specifically for you. It is important that both doctor and patient are on the same page in regards to expectations and the desired outcome. You must discuss the profile that you wish to achieve for your chin as it is not a one size fits all approach. The amount of submental fat to be removed as well as the desired profile will determine how many treatments are necessary.
How many sessions will I need
Most patients are able to achieve their desired outcome in two to four sessions. Some patients may require more treatment sessions and can require four to six Kybella treatment session. Some of these patients may opt for liposuction to get rid of their double chin, but can still receive great results and satisfaction from Kybella. Cost is always a factor in any decision and the more treatment sessions required then the cost is likely to go up. Each session will last for approximately thirty minutes.
How many injections in each session
During each session the patient will receive between twelve to twenty little injections on average. In cases where there is severe submental fat present, a patient may require more injections in each treatment session. The sessions are spaced no less than four to six weeks apart in order to achieve maximum results and allow for the body to heal and recuperate in between the sessions.
What results can I expect
After your sessions are done your Kybella treatment is complete and the unwanted submental fat that led to the appearance of the double chin is now gone. The results will speak for themselves and will be noticeable to you as well as your family, friends and coworkers. The results will be worth the time and expense as you will feel better about your appearance. You will experience improved self confidence and feel good about looking in the mirror at your new jaw line. The removal of your double chin will give you a more youthful appearance and perhaps put a pep in your step.
