Kybella Injection for Double Chin – Minneapolis St. Paul, MN
Fatty tissues under the chin, often called a double chin, are medically described as “submental fullness.” Even with successful weight reduction plans, this stubborn problem often persists and is an appearance concern for many men and women. Cosmetic surgery is an option sometimes. However, a new FDA-approved injectable treatment with Kybella from Allergan is very effective in permanently reducing or eliminating this annoying problem for adults. Without the drawbacks of cosmetic surgery or liposuction, it is a permanent, effective treatment offered by our Twin Cities medical spa.
Is Kybella Right for You?
If you are over 18 years of age and have moderate to severe amounts of excess fatty tissue under your chin, you may be a good candidate for Kybella. After a thorough evaluation by the medical professionals at our Minneapolis area med spa, we’ll be able to advise you whether a series of injections will be beneficial and effective in reducing the appearance of your submental fullness or double chin. We’ll explain your treatment options and discuss what you can expect, so you can make the decision that’s right for you.
How Kybella Permanently Improves Your Appearance
Its active ingredient is deoxycholic acid, a molecule that naturally occurs in your body to break down absorption of fat in your diet. When injected, it actually destroys fat cells. Your body naturally eliminates the fat. Since the treatment destroys the fat cells, additional fat cannot accumulate in the area later. In extensive clinical trials, Kybella has been shown to be very successful in improving appearance. Approved by FDA, it has been shown to be safe and effective when administered by trained medical professionals. Its advantages over cosmetic surgery or liposuction are many:
- Safe, Effective and Simple – A series of precise injections is used.
- No Scars – The treatment is non-invasive.
- Minimal Discomfort – The small injections are well tolerated.
- Cost-Effective – The treatment is effective at a low cost.
- Effective Results – You’ll see better appearance after each treatment.
- Permanence – Fat cells are destroyed and cannot accumulate fat later.
- Proven Satisfaction – 79% of patients report satisfaction with this procedure.
What to Expect from Kybella Injections
After a thorough evaluation by a medical professional, a treatment plan will be created that may require from 1 to 6 separate series of injections, depending on your individual needs and the desired results. During each procedure, which will take just a few minutes, several carefully placed small injections will deliver the active ingredient directly to the affected areas. Treatments are spaced about a month apart. You may experience very minor discomfort during and after the injections. Our medical professional will discuss possible side effects with you during the consultation. Once the series of injections is completed, the double chin will be permanently eliminated and there is no need to have this procedure again, as shown in the above before and after photos.
How Much Does Kybella Cost?
The cost of treating your troublesome double chin with Kybella can be compared to liposuction, and will depend on the number of treatments needed to achieve the desired appearance. We’ll be happy to discuss the cost with you during consultation. Unlike with surgical treatments, you’ll experience little recovery inconvenience. Most patients prefer this non-invasive approach and are very satisfied with the results.
