Kybella is a unique cosmetic injectable because it focuses on reducing (rather than adding) volume. It’s composed of a special component that melts away the unwanted fat tissues under the chin (submental fat tissues), helping you achieve a chiseled jawline. Kybella in Ashburn, VA is particularly popular amongst patients struggling to get rid of a double chin, which is often resistant to traditional weight loss methods, like exercise and dieting.
What is Kybella?
Melt Under-Chin Fat with Kybella
Kybella is composed of a synthetic version of a naturally occurring component called deoxycholic acid. This component encourages your body to break down and dissolve dietary fat. When Kybella is injected under the chin, it encourages your body to destroy the unwanted fat cells in the submental region. Over time, your body metabolizes and expels the unwanted fat tissues, giving you a chiseled jawline.
Your Kybella Experience
Your Kybella experience at Prejuvenation Aesthetics starts with a personal consultation with our cosmetic injector. She’ll determine the number of vials necessary to treat the unwanted fat tissues under your chin — most patients need 3 vials during their first session. She’ll also curate your long-term Kybella treatment plan.
The targeted areas will be cleansed and iced — this numbs your skin and ensures optimal comfort. The cosmetic injector will draw the Kybella into syringes and deliver them strategically around your chin and neck. The injections are evenly distributed to prevent uneven results or lumping. The entire procedure takes 10 to 15 minutes.
You may experience mild redness, swelling, discomfort, stinging, and burning sensations around the treatment areas because of the acid. The swelling may last for up to seven days, and the treatment areas will be tender. However, you can resume most of your daily activities immediately after the treatment — there’s no downtime.
Kybella doesn’t provide instant results, so you must be patient. The results will gradually appear over several weeks or months as your body breaks down the unwanted fat tissues. Most patients need 2+ Kybella treatments spaced a month apart for optimal results. Your cosmetic injector will curate the ideal Kybella treatment frequency for you.
