At Aesthetics and Wellness of Durango, we use Kybella to target localized fat under the chin resulting in a nonsurgical chin lift. It’s an FDA approved, nonsurgical treatment designed to reduce the appearance of a double chin.
- Less invasive than double chin surgery
- Natural and very safe
- Short recovery period with mild swelling under the chin
HOW IT WORKS
Kybella is a patented formulation of deoxycholic acid manufactured by Allergan, the makers of BOTOX®. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring substance in our bodies used to digest fat in our diets. Kybella destroys the fat cell membrane allowing the chin fat to be expelled out of the body, helping to get rid of a double chin with a without double chin surgery. Once your provider maps and chills the treatment area, she makes multiple quick injections with Kybella. You may experience some swelling, numbness, bruising and or tingling in the treatment area. Your treatment time will be less than 50 minutes.
Results vary from person to person and multiple sessions are recommended (if the fatty deposit is larger) to gradually reduce the unwanted chin fat. As the body expels the chin fat, slimming of the area occurs over the next 8 weeks. An added benefit is tightening of the overlying skin in most cases.
2 – 5 sessions repeated every 6-8 weeks
You may experience swelling, possible bruising and itching, possible tingling, pins and needles, or pain, or possible temporary nodules under the skin
