Kybella is a non-surgical injectable treatment for reducing fat on the upper neck, otherwise known as a “double chin.” Kybella was FDA approved in April 2015, and here at Parker Aesthetics, we can now offer this revolutionary treatment to our clients. Kybella is a great treatment to get rid of neck fat – like a chin liposuction without surgery.
How does KYBELLA work?
Fat accumulation beneath the jawline and chin is known as submental fat, or a double chin. Submental Fat is a very common complaint among both men and women. Kybellais made up of a naturally occurring substance within the body, called deoxycholic acid; this is found within the liver and works to dissolve fat cells within the body. When injected into the targeted area, fat cells are broken down and absorbed, which means KybellaA is a holistic and safe way to eradicate that problem area.
A series of injections will be required, and the exact timing of these is determined at the consultation, because as we know, every single person is different. On the whole, for patients with moderate to severe fat accumulation in this area, Kybella has been shown to be highly effective.
How many injections are required for effective treatment?
This completely depends on the person, but generally speaking, around 2-5 sessions are required for optimal results. Each of these sessions needs to be spaced out properly, which is around 1-2 months apart. The average amount of treatments is the 2-3 mark, and during one session, around 15-20 microinjections are administered.
Over time, and after the treatment plan is completed, the body works to metabolize the damaged fat cells from the procedures undertaken, which leads to a permanent change in appearance, and a slimmer and more youthful look overall.
