A double chin is a common aesthetic concern among men and women. Kybella is an FDA-approved, non-surgical injectable treatment designed to reduce under the chin (submental) fat and improve the definition of the jawline. Kybella’s key ingredient is identical to deoxycholic acid, a fat-absorbing substance that is naturally produced in our body. When properly injected by our medical professionals, Kybella targets and destroys unwanted fat cells, without harming healthy skin or other tissues. Once fat cells have been destroyed, the body removes them naturally over the next few weeks. After a series of treatments, patients typically see the following results:
- Reduced fullness in the chin and neck area
- Improvement of a double chin
- A more sculpted jawline
Is Kybella The Best Treatment for Under Chin Fat?
Kybella is an effective and popular way to address submental fat. However, it requires multiple sessions of injections and does not deliver immediate results. UltraTight™ is a signature fat removal and skin tightening procedure, developed and personally performed by Dr. Paul Jarrod Frank at his NYC office. UltraTight™ is an excellent alternative to Kybella. It combines minimally-invasive liposuction and ultrasound skin tightening and requires only a single treatment and a weekend recovery.
How Is Kybella Performed?
At PFRANKMD™ Skin Salon, Kybella treatments are performed by one of our highly-trained medical professionals. During the procedure, Kybella is injected into the fat tissue in the chin area. When Kybella is administered, it can produce a slight burning sensation, which can last a few minutes. However, the temporary sensation is considered tolerable and most patients do not report significant discomfort. The number of injections given in a single Kybella treatment will vary, depending on the individual case.
After treatment, patients can expect to see some swelling and redness beneath the chin. These minor side effects usually subside in a day or two. Because it takes time for the fat to be flushed out, results are not immediately visible. Multiple appointments are usually necessary to achieve optimal outcome. Some patients may need up to 6 treatments, spaced about a month apart to reach their aesthetic goal.
