Are you tired of having to hide your double chin with strategic angles while taking pictures or sitting on yet another Zoom conference? We know how annoying it can be to deal with having a double chin. It can disrupt your entire facial profile and what makes matters worse, it is not easy to get rid of. While some double chins are the result of excess weight gain, others develop as a result of genetics. They’re not easy to get rid of with diet and exercise alone and you may find that once it’s there, it’s there for good. That is until you reach out to IconMD Medical Spa + Laser Center in Boca Raton, FL, for a Kybella treatment.
Before & After
At IconMD Medical Spa & Laser Center, we like to focus on the after results because how you look and feel
post-treatment is what counts the most.
What is Kybella?
Kybella is an injectable treatment that can be used to enhance one’s facial profile by eliminating submental fat that accumulates beneath the chin. It is composed of a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a chemical compound that is responsible for breaking down fat in the body.
The Kybella Treatment Process
Kybella is a minimally invasive, FDA-approved treatment. Once the Kybella solution is injected into the chin, the deoxycholic acid will actively break down the fat in the treatment area. Once the fat cells are destroyed, they will then be filtered through the body and removed through natural bodily processes. Over the course of time, the chin will begin to slim down and the facial contours of the patient undergoing the procedure will be drastically improved.
The Kybella treatment process is relatively quick when compared to other facial contouring procedures. It does not require the use of highly invasive surgical techniques and other than a small prick that may be felt when it is injected, patients can expect to feel comfortable throughout the entire treatment. The number of injections varies from patient to patient and depends on the extent of fat removal required to achieve the goal look.
What to Expect After The Kybella Treatment
Kybella is a safe and effective procedure that does not require a long period of downtime for recovery. After the treatment is over, you might experience some mild inflammation in the treatment area. This side effect is temporary and will subside quickly. The results provided by the treatment are minimal at first but will continue to improve over the course of time. As the fat is processed out of the body, the full results will be visible over the coming weeks.
Candidates for Kybella
Kybella is an excellent cosmetic treatment for people who are unhappy with the sight of a double chin. A few factors we take into consideration to help determine if you’d make a good candidate are your current state of health, medical history, and the amount of submental fat that resides in the treatment area. We’ll perform an initial assessment of your facial contours and ask you about your medical history to help determine if a Kybella treatment is right for you.
