Regardless of age, extra “fullness” or fat accumulation beneath the chin produces a “double chin” effect. Although you can choose to undergo surgery to correct this, Mariposa Aesthetics & Laser Center is now offering a new, non-surgical and minimally invasive alternative that helps eliminate the double chin. It’s called Kybella™ injectable treatments.
To make a consultation with our medical team and find out if Kybella™ injections are a good fit for you, contact us now.
What is Kybella™?
FDA-approved for treating moderate to severe submental fat (double chin) in adults, Kybella™ is made up of a deoxycholic acid that helps absorb fat and is naturally found in the body. This treatment returns definition to your profile and eliminates fat cells when injected into the chin area.
When people undergo liposuction or facial surgery, excess fat in the chin is removed, but you also must face extensive recovery and healing. If you decide on Kybella™, there is no surgery, minimal pain, and you can return to normal life in a timely manner.
Your individual conditions will determine the extent of treatment with Kybella™. In each session, you will need multiple injections. Normally, you will also need two to four sessions for the results you are looking for. After assessing your individual needs, our medical team will create a customized treatment plan for you.
Am I a Good Candidate for Kybella™ Injections?
Kybella™ is proven for diminishing chin fat and restoring facial contours. To determine if Kybella™ is the best option for you, we will evaluate certain factors like your health, medical history, cosmetic goals and expectations. We can also advise whether tightening the skin after Kybella™ may be needed.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Common side effects include light bruising, swelling, redness, and itching, but these should diminish within a few days. This treatment is clinically tested and safe for most patients, but some rare side effects and complications may apply and will be discussed with you prior to treatment.
Kybella™ permanently destroys fat cells, but it cannot control future weight gain and lifestyle changes. It is impossible to prevent the visible signs of aging in the future. Regular treatment with Kybella™, however, is a safe and effective way to fight double chin fat and restore contour.
