To The Double Chin
What Is Kybella®?
Kybella® is a non-surgical and minimally invasive injectable treatment that is FDA-approved to reduce the appearance of a double chin. With Kybella®, patients can achieve a more contoured jawline without weeks of uncomfortable downtime.
This product’s key ingredient is synthetic deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule in the body. Deoxycholic acid helps the body break down and absorb fat.
When Kybella® is injected into areas of fat underneath the chin, it begins to destroy fat cells in the area. Once the fat cells are destroyed, the body can no longer accumulate fat in the area, resulting in a more defined neck and jawline.
At Nusclupt our patients consider us to offer the best Kybella® treatment in Cincinnati, Ohio, Crestview Hills, Kentucky.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Optimal candidates for Kybella® are over age 18, do not have any infections or other health issues in the treatment region, and are not currently pregnant or breastfeeding. Patients taking anti-inflammatory drugs must speak with their doctor before coming in for a Kybella treatment. Non-smokers are preferred, since smoking negatively affects tissue health.
What is a Kybella® Treatment Like?
The first step in your Kybella® double-chin-reduction treatment is applying a topical anesthetic to the treatment area. This numbs the skin to ensure that the injection is as painless as possible.
After this, a number of Kybella® injections will be performed in the neck and chin area. This process takes only a few minutes, so the full Kybella® treatment is completed in less than half an hour.
Is There Any Downtime After Kybella®?
Kybella® and many other injectables are popular cosmetic treatments because they require absolutely no downtime. Patients are able to return to work and other normal activities immediately after their appointment, making Kybella® a great “lunchtime” procedure.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect From Kybella®?
Patients will have a series of treatments over time, with each round of injections removing a larger number of fat cells that cause submental fullness. After your initial Kybella treatment, you should notice results within 4-6 weeks, with fat reduction continuing with each subsequent session.
How Much Does Kybella® Cost?
The cost of your Kybella® treatment will depend on the number of injections necessary to deliver your desired results. When you come in for your initial consultation, we will develop a personalized treatment plan that includes the exact cost of your treatment.
As a cosmetic procedure, Kybella® is not covered by insurance providers. In order to keep this and other treatments affordable to our patients, we offer financing through CareCredit® and accept all major credit cards.
