Many people have a problem with their double chin — and until several years ago, the only option to cosmetically remove it was through surgery or liposuction. There’s now Kybella®, an injectable treatment designed to reduce under-chin fat.
Kybella treatment details
Before treatment, you will be given a topical anesthetic to numb your skin. This will help minimize any discomfort from the injections. Your skin will be marked with a dot grid to help guide your specialist, and then the injections will be administered. You will receive approximately 10 to 50 Kybella injections (there will be breaks between these injections). While you may feel some pressure and/or a mild burning sensation, the treatment is very tolerable.
Once the injections are complete, the treated area will be wrapped with a compression garment. Most patients get their desired results with 2 to 4 treatment sessions scheduled six weeks apart. Unlike most cosmetic injectables, Kybella does not require maintenance follow-up sessions.
