Kybella: A Non-Invasive Way to Achieve a More Defined Chin Kybella: A Non-Invasive Way to Achieve a More Defined Chin

Kybella is a non-surgical treatment used to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat below the chin, also called “submental fullness.” It is the first and only treatment to be approved by the FDA for treating a double chin. 

How does Kybella work?

Kybella treatment involves a series of injections under the chin. The number of sessions needed depends on the amount of fat under the chin and the desired look. 

Made of a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, Kybella destroys the underlying fat cells preventing them from storing or accumulating fat. It breaks down the fat cells, causing them to leak their contents and be absorbed by the body. Kybella also stimulates the production of collagen, which helps improve the appearance of the skin.

Most patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 treatments.

Benefits of Kybella treatment

Non-invasive: Kybella is administered through injections, so there is no need for incisions or downtime.

Customizable: The number and frequency of treatments can be tailored to your specific needs and goals.

Natural-looking results: Kybella breaks down fat cells under the chin, resulting in a more defined and contoured jawline that looks natural and balanced.

Long-lasting: The results of Kybella are permanent, as the treated fat cells are permanently destroyed.

Safe and effective: Kybella has been extensively tested and has been proven to be safe and effective for reducing the appearance of a double chin.

Potential risks and side effects

At Remagin, we ensure that you get the most out of your Kybella session by alleviating potential risks and side effects. Nonetheless, here are a few symptoms you should watch out for:

Temporary numbness: This is caused by the local anesthesia injected during the process and usually lasts for a few hours after the treatment.

Swelling: Usually lasts for a few days after treatment and can be minimized by applying ice to the treatment area.

Redness: Lasts for a few hours and can be minimized by applying ice to the treatment area.

Bruising: Can be minimized by avoiding aspirin and other blood thinners for a week before and after treatment.

Pain: Can be minimized by taking over-the-counter pain relievers such as ibuprofen.

Infection: Infection is a rare but possible side effect of Kybella. The chances of getting infected can be minimized by keeping the treatment area clean and dry.

Allergic Reaction: May occur when one comes in contact with triggers such as certain foods, pollens, and pet dander. Be sure to avoid triggers or take OTC medicine as prescribed by the doctor if you experience an allergic reaction.

How much does Kybella treatment cost?

Prices for Kybella treatments vary depending on the number of treatments needed and the area being treated. A single treatment can cost anywhere between $600 to $1,200, and multiple sessions may be needed for optimal results.
