What exactly is Kybella, and what can it do for your double chin? First, this injectable product won the Best of Beauty Breakthrough Award from Allure back in 2015, which is also the year it was approved by the FDA. Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa has the 411 on this incredible product.
Allergan is the same company that brings us Botox Cosmetic, Juvéderm, CoolSculpting, and other medical aesthetics. We should also mention that according to their safety data sheet, this liquid gel “…contains no substances which at their given concentration, are considered to be hazardous to health.”
With that information, it should put your mind at ease if you’ve been thinking about getting these chin injections to help you feel better about your profile. So, how does Kybella (Deoxycholic Acid Belkyra) work, and who is a good candidate for these injections?
Kybella works by targeting the cells within the submental region. That’s the spot right under your chin and back toward your neck. When they inject the treatment, it destroys the fat cells, which means they can’t regenerate again. One of the things you’ll appreciate about this treatment is the fact that once the treatments are finished, there’s no maintenance needed, like many other products. It’s a permanent solution.
You’re a good candidate if you’re uncomfortable with your appearance due to chin fat. As we get older, our collagen isn’t as active as it used to be, and we lose elasticity. This causes sagging, and with the fat pads beneath your skin, it can make you self-conscious as it becomes more noticeable. Other reasons this area is more noticeable is due to either genetics or weight gain. Let’s face it, we don’t get to decide where fat stores on our body.
If you opt to get Kybella treatments, this is what you can expect. The injections take approximately 15-20 mins for each session. They’ll do multiple injections during your appointment. Now, take in mind, that this is not a 1 session process. In fact, it may take two to six treatment sessions to get the results you want.
Based on their clinical trials, most people saw 55% improvement after 4 appointments, as compared with only 14% who saw a change with the placebo.
So, if you’ve been feeling self-conscious of your double-chin, Kybella may be a treatment worth considering. The most common side effects have to do with redness, swelling, and discomfort at the injection site. They do have two possible side effects that you should know about, though the risks are pretty low, they are worth mentioning. Some people end up with nerve damage that causes a crooked smile, and others have trouble swallowing. They don’t mention if this is a temporary side effect or permanent, so if you’d like to know more, check with the company or the physician you’re working with.
