Why Choose Kybella® for Chin Contouring?

Kybella® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells under the chin, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness and an improvement in the contour of your jawline. Benefits of Kybella® include:

  • Non-Surgical Solution: A great alternative to liposuction or surgical neck lifts for those seeking to avoid surgery.
  • Minimal Downtime: Kybella® does cause significant swelling of the area treated, lasting about 2 weeks after your treatment. Pain is minimal post procedure.
  • Customized Treatments: The treatment plan is tailored to the specific needs of each patient, ensuring optimal results. Most patients will need at least 3 treatments (sometimes even more) for maximum benefit.
  • Lasting Results: Once the desired aesthetic outcome is achieved, further treatment is not expected, as the fat cells are permanently destroyed.

The Science Behind Kybella: Understanding the Treatment

Kybella® is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin and elsewhere Kybella® effectively destroys fat cells allowing your body to process and remove them. Once these cells are destroyed, they can no longer store or accumulate fat which will lead to less fullness in the treated area.

The active ingredient in Kybella®, deoxycholic acid, mimics the action of natural deoxycholic acid. Once injected, it disrupts the cell membrane of adipocytes (fat cells), leading to cell lysis. The contents of the fat cells are then released and naturally processed and eliminated by the body’s immune system. This process also stimulates a mild inflammatory response that promotes tissue contraction, which can lead to a more contoured chin and jawline.

The precision of Kybella® injections allows for targeted treatment of the area, which means that surrounding tissues are typically not affected. This specificity is what makes Kybella® an effective treatment for reducing submental fullness without surgery.

Who are the Ideal Candidates for Kybella®?

Kybella® is ideal for individuals who:

  • Are at least 18 years old
  • Looking to reduce the appearance of submental fullness or fullness elsewhere
  • Preferring a non-surgical approach
  • Possessing good skin elasticity
  • Are in overall good health
  • Are not pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Do not have any bleeding or clotting disorders
  • Have realistic expectations
  • Show clinical evidence of appropriate skin concerns

The NYC Kybella® Treatment Process

A Kybella® treatment involves carefully placed injections placed directly into the area of concern under the chin. When injected, Kybella® works to destroy fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. The process is relatively quick, lasting about 15 to 20 minutes per session.

After the treatment, discomfort is typically minimal and can be managed with ice or over-the-counter pain relievers. While pain is minimal, it is common to experience swelling of the area which lasts about 1-2 weeks post procedure. The exact number of treatments is tailored to each individual, but most patients require 3 to 4 sessions, spaced at least one month apart, for optimal results. Each session builds upon the last, enhancing the effects and progression towards a more defined chin/neck/jaw contour.

Maintaining Your Kybella® Results

The results of Kybella® are enduring, as the destroyed fat cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. After reaching your desired aesthetic, maintaining a stable weight is crucial to preserve the definition of your jawline. Significant fluctuations in weight can alter the improved profile, as other fat cells in the area may expand.

A balanced diet and regular exercise are recommended to maintain your newly contoured chin. It is also important to follow any additional post-treatment care instructions provided by your practitioner to ensure the best possible outcome.

New York City Kybella – FAQs

The number of Kybella® treatments varies from patient to patient. It typically ranges from 3 to 4 treatments, spaced at least one month apart, depending on the amount of fat and the patient’s desired profile.

There is minimal downtime with Kybella®. Patients can experience swelling, bruising, or numbness under the chin, but these are usually temporary and resolve on their own. Swelling typically last about 2 weeks and in general becomes less intense with each subsequent treatment.

Results from Kybella® appear gradually. Optimal outcomes are usually seen after completing the full course of treatment sessions, as the body needs time to process and eliminate the destroyed fat cells and once swelling resolves.

Currently, Kybella® is only FDA-approved to treat submental fullness. It is not approved for use in other areas of the body. That being said it is used by your dermatologist to treat off label areas like the jowls, fullness of the bra “fat rolls.”

The most common side effects of Kybella® include swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area. Most side effects are mild and resolve on their own.

Good candidates for Kybella® are adults with moderate to severe fat beneath the chin who prefer a non-surgical treatment option. Candidates should be at least 18 years old, in good general health, and have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the treatment.
