Kybella Fat Reduction Lemont IL
Kybella® is an FDA approved treatment used to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin. Also known as a “double chin,” or submental fat, small injections of Kybella work wonders in reducing fat below the chin permanently.
What is Kybella®?
Kybella® is a type of injectable used to permanently diminish fat under the chin. It can also be used on other parts of the body, but fighting fat under the chin is it’s most common and studied use.
Kybella® is made from a molecule that occurs naturally in the body called deoxycholic acid, and it aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fats. Many customers of Solana have used Kybella treatments for chin fat removal over surgery, as it’s minimally invasive, and highly effective.
How Do Kybella Treatments Work?
To make sure that Kybella treatments are right for you, a Solana specialist will examine the skin and area underneath and around your chin prior to your first treatment. Our specialists use information gathered from this examination to determine the amount of Kybella to administer.
From there, we will align your goals for neck and chin fat removal to formulate a treatment tailored for your body. Then, we discuss how many treatments you’ll likely need to achieve your desired results.
The treatments take 15-20 minutes each. You can expect that during that time you’ll receive injections under your chin.
How Often Should I Get Kybella Treatments?
How to get rid of fat under the chin is different for everyone. Chin profiles differ. Treatments vary depending on the patient.
The amount of Kybella treatments you’ll need to achieve your chin fat removal goal will depend on three things: amount of chin fat, distribution of submental fat and predetermined Kybella treatment goals.
Kybella treatments happen relatively infrequently, and don’t require a lot of appointments. Each Kybella treatment will be scheduled at least one month apart. Most patients receive six consecutive months of treatment.
What are the Risks of Kybella Treatments?
Your Solana specialist will ask you about medications you’re taking, and if you’ve ever had surgery or treatments to fix a double chin, or the neck area in an effort to minimize any risks posed by Kybella treatment.
Most patients report a minimal amount of swelling and bruising as well as mild numbness under their chins.
Kybella treatments may have other side effects, however we take care to help you avoid the more severe, less common side effects. As always, Kybella treatment is now performed on people under 18 years of age.
