Kybella at Young Medical Spa
Kybella™ treats the common problem known as double chin, which can cause one to feel self conscious and embarrassed about their facial profile. It is difficult to get rid of a double chin with diet and exercise alone, since the excess fat on the chin is commonly caused by genetics, aging, and lifestyle habits. Submental fat, another term for the extra fat under the chin, can be treated with Kybella at Young Medical Spa®. Kybella is FDA-approved to treat submental fullness, which results in a slimmer and younger-looking facial profile. Kybella is a revolutionary treatment that reduces the double chin without surgery or downtime. This treatment involves injecting the excess fat on the chin with deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule that increases the rate in which the body breaks down and absorbs fat cells. Kybella treats the fat cells in the treated area for a more youthful contour around the chin, neck, jowls, and jawline, although individual results may vary.
Frequently Asked Questions about Kybella at Young Medical Spa
Kybella is formulated with a molecule called deoxycholic acid, which helps the body break down and absorb excess fat. The treatments result in a slimmer, younger-looking facial profile.
We recommend patients take as little as two days before returning to everyday activities. With this procedure, patients can expect the treated area can be visibly swollen for up to a week or more post-procedure.
Most patients can see visible results in as little as two months. Once the fat cells are treated, they rarely return to the treated area.
Patients may experience bruising, swelling, and pain at the injection site. These side effects typically subside quickly and on their own.
Since Kybella is formulated to treat smaller areas like the chin, other areas of the body, such as the stomach, are too large to be effectively treated by Kybella.
