For those looking to remove a double chin that can be both unsightly and annoying on a daily basis, Kybella treatments are becoming more and more popular. Useful for both men and women, Kybella uses injections that can lessen the look of a double chin.
At Beauty Now, we can offer high-quality Kybella treatments to reduce the fullness of your chin. Many people struggle to lose this area of their face, even if they’re losing weight through good exercise and diet – Kybella can be a great alternative. Here’s why it’s preferable to liposuction or other forms of surgery, plus how you should prepare yourself for Kybella treatments.
A Safer Alternative
In many cases, those with double chins simply live with them because they don’t want to go the route of invasive plastic surgery or liposuction services. These processes may indeed help remove the double chin, but they also often come with more hassle and downtime.
Kybella has been studied extensively and approved for safety – the only such product to have FDA approval.
Outside ensuring that the procedure is being carried out by a licensed professional like our doctors, there’s not a whole lot of major preparation that goes into Kybella treatments. You’ll be asked to avoid blood thinners for 10-14 days prior to treatment (this includes all over-the-counter pain medications), as well as alcohol. If you’re worried about bruising or swelling, you can take Arnica Montana.
It’s important to note that in most cases, Kybella treatments are given in multiple injections over time. Most patients require anywhere from two to six separate injection sessions to get the best possible results – our staff will sit down with you and determine the appropriate number for the best outcome.
Each session will include somewhere between 12 and 50 injections to various areas of the chin, usually lasting about 15 to 20 minutes in total. These appointments will generally be spaced out by at least a month.
Seeing and Maintaining Results
Now, despite the process taking several months in most cases, you’ll usually begin to see results much sooner than this. They often show up just three weeks after your first session, and usually within 4-6 weeks.
