Have you been wanting to get rid of that turkey neck or double chin? There is a non-surgical treatment for that now. It’s called Kybella.
Kybella is a prescription medicine that is injected into the fat accumulated beneath the chin. The medicine is a naturally occurring compound that assists with the breakdown and absorption of fat. The reduction of fat under the chin, sharpens and defines the profile.
The treatment takes only five to twenty minutes. Multiple treatments one month apart may be necessary to achieve the desired results. Common side effects are minimal – redness, numbness, sensitivity, and swelling at the injection points. These are usually temporary side effects and will subside after a few weeks.
One of the most frequently asked questions is “How long after getting Kybella will I see results?” In this video, Karen Albright, owner and founder of BodyLase, answers that question.
A medical spa treatment, Kybella, can help a lot of people who want to get rid of the fullness under the chin or double chin. Generally, you will see results in approximately 8 to 12 weeks.
It is recommended that anyone wanting Kybella treatment look at their social calendar and plan in advance for a wedding, a birthday, an anniversary, or a reunion. For the best results, it is recommended to have Kybella done approximately 3 months in advance of any special occasion.
Kybella consists of deoxycholic acid which is a natural molecule that is found in the body that Allergan (the company that makes Kybella) has created in synthetic form. Kybella is FDA approved and is very safe.
