Do you have submental fat underneath your chin that does not seem to go away regardless of how much you exercise or how healthy you eat? Are you someone who hopes to avoid surgery and is actively looking for alternatives for fat reduction?
At our medspa in Bellevue, WA, we have an FDA-approved injectable called Kybella® that works wonders. Kybella is approved for people who are 18 and older. If that applies to you, keep reading to find out more about the treatment…
What Do Kybella® Injections Entail?
Kybella® is an injectable that reduces under-chin fat. The active ingredient in the injectable is “synthetic deoxycholic acid”. This type of acid aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Once injected into the skin, the process of destroying fat cells begins. Once they are destroyed, the fat cells no longer store or gain further fat underneath the chin. This fat exits your body naturally over time, and you’re left with a slimmer appearance in the chin area.
During your treatment, you will receive multiple injections spaced out underneath your chin. Clients may feel slight discomfort due to the sensitivity of the treatment area. If needed, we will administer a numbing agent beforehand as our main concern is your comfort and safety. We also offer “Pro-Nox” gas for a small fee which reduces patient anxiety during treatments. We will discuss options for comfort management during a complimentary consultation at our spa.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Our staff at Advanced Skin and Body Solutions in Bellevue will work with you to create a treatment plan tailored to you as an individual. Many patients can see a visible difference within 2 to 4 Kybella treatments. These treatments are spaced one month apart. However, keep in mind that results vary from person to person, and it may take up to 6 treatments to receive optimal results.
How Long Will the Results Last?
One of the most amazing parts of this revolutionary injectable is that once you have one treatment, it begins to kill fat cells. Since fat cells are gone, they no longer store or accumulate fat. Once you and our staff at our Bellevue spa are confident in your progress, you will likely not need further treatment as the results are long-lasting with the maintenance of a healthy lifestyle. So long as your calorie intake is within a healthy margin, you should not gain fat in this area.
Who Benefits From Kybella®?
If you have had other treatments on the neck or face area, our staff might decide not to move forward with Kybella due to possible risks and complications. If you are nursing or pregnant, this treatment is also not right for you. If this is the case, our staff at Advanced Skin and Body Solutions will make sure to walk you through possible alternatives that might be better suited to you.
Overall, most adults (18 and older) who do not want to have surgery and have submental fat underneath the chin are good candidates for Kybella. It is always a good idea to inform our staff of any allergies before undergoing Kybella treatments.
Do Kybella treatments at Advanced Skin and Body Solutions sound like the right fit? We are located in Bellevue, WA, with a great team that would love to help you achieve your beauty goals. If not Kybella, we might end up recommending CoolSculpting in the “double chin” area, as this works to reduce fat permanently. CoolSculpting can also kill fat cells and slim your stomach, man “pec” area, thighs, love handles, and more.
