Kybella is an injectable treatment for reducing a double chin without power assisted liposuction and other invasive options.
Kybella® treatment works by introducing an enzyme into the subcutaneous fat under the jawline that contributes to a double chin. The enzyme gradually breaks down the fat, which is naturally absorbed and eliminated by the body. Kybella® is ideal for patients who are near their ideal weight and want to reduce fat that starts under the chin and extends to the top of the neck.
The Retreat Restorative & Aesthetics offers free consultations with Dr. Joshua Baker, so you can find out if Kybella® is your best option as well as other details, such as the cost of treatment. We also explain our financing options through CareCredit®, LendingUSA® and GreenSky®. The cost of our Kybella® injections is determined by the number of units needed to help you achieve your desired results.
Kybella® before and after pictures show you how well the product works for addressing a double chin without surgery. The best candidates are men and women who maintain a healthy weight and have submental fat. Another consideration is the elasticity of your skin. If you have loose skin on your neck, Kybella® may not be the right option.
Kybella® injections work by evenly distributing the enzyme across the subcutaneous fat, and this requires a series of injections over the course of several appointments. Full results typically take about 16 weeks, but this does vary by patient.
If you have read about Kybella® before, after treatment considerations may be of top concern. Kybella® does not require any downtime, so you do not need to take time off from work or your favorite activities. You may have some soreness, bruising, and swelling at each point in the skin where Dr. Baker makes the injections. The symptoms only last about 24 to 48 hours.
Kybella® reviews will tell you that the results are long-lasting. Kybella® results are considered permanent because the existing fat cells are destroyed, but Dr. Baker explains to his patients that they can still develop new fat in the area. Following a healthy lifestyle helps to extend Kybella® results.
