If you are struggling to find a solution for your double chin that doesn’t involve surgery, look no further than Kybella®. Rosenthal Cosmetic Plastic Surgery and Dermatology offers Kybella®to help residents in Boynton Beach, Delray Beach and Wellington, FL, eliminate their double chin.
What is Kybella®?
Kybella® is the first and only injectable treatment that is FDA-approved for the management of a double chin, otherwise known as submental fullness. The Kybella® formula is composed of deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule found in the body that helps to break down and absorb fat. When injected into the chin area, the deoxycholic acid breaks down fat under the chin. Within weeks, you will notice a reduction in their double chin that enhances their jawline and their overall appearance.
How Much Does Kybella® Cost?
The cost of Kybella® will vary based on your unique needs and treatment goals. During your consultation, we take many things into consideration to design a personalized treatment plan that will optimize your results and treatment experience. Once this treatment plan is determined, we will be able to provide you with a clear breakdown of the costs associated with your Kybella® treatment. For your convenience, we accept cash, checks, credit cards, and financing through CareCredit®.
What Can I Expect During the Kybella® Procedure?
Before performing Kybella® injections, we will use a topical anesthetic to numb the treatment area and minimize any discomfort that may occur during the injection process. Then, a number of injections will be made into and around the area under the chin. The number of injections necessary will depend upon your desired results. A Kybella® treatment takes approximately 30 minutes to perform, which is why it and similar injectable treatments have earned the title of a “lunchtime” or “lunch-break” treatment.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Kybella®?
The Kybella® formula can take a few weeks to take effect. You will typically notice results within two or three weeks, with full results becoming noticeable within six weeks of treatment. The Kybella® formula permanently destroys fat cells under the chin, so touch-ups or maintenance treatments are rarely needed. However, most men and women need a series of three to five treatments to achieve their desired results.
What is the Recovery Period Like Following Kybella®?
Like other dermal filler and injectable treatments, there is no downtime required after Kybella®. You may experience mild swelling, sensitivity or bruising in the injection area, but these effects typically fade within a day or two. You are able to return to work and other usual activities immediately following your Kybella® treatment.
