Maybe you’ve had the experience of looking in the mirror, then doing a double take because, well, you’re seeing double—specifically, a double chin. While in some people a double chin is related to weight, in others it’s simply a genetic inheritance—you hit a certain age and the dreaded double chin suddenly makes its appearance. Then you find yourself posing awkwardly in photographs, trying to cover it up. What if we told you you never have to do the ‘chin lift’ pose again? Kybella® could very well be the answer you’ve been looking for!
Dr. Adriana Lombardi will consult with you first and then will perform your Kybella® injections at the Skin Cancer and Cosmetic Surgery Center of NJ. She has over seven years of experience in the field of dermatology and has performed hundreds of Kybella® treatments. Her extensive knowledge in the field of dermatology guarantees the very best results.
What is Kybella?
Kybella® is made of deoxycholic acid, which is a natural substance most living organisms have. It helps break down fat so it can then be absorbed into the body. As an injectable dermal filler, Kybella® is perfect for treating double chins and can significantly help improve your facial profile. To be clear, this is a treatment for double chins, not loose, hanging skin, such as a “turkey neck.”
How does Kybella work?
Once Kybella® is injected into your chin area, it goes to work destroying fat cells. Once fat cells are destroyed, they’re processed by your body and then excreted like any other bodily waste. Those destroyed fat cells are gone for good—never to return! That means the double chin should be gone for good, with no additional treatments requirement. Additionally, Kybella® helps tighten the overall area that is injected, helping create a cleaner, smoother profile.
Treatment usually requires several Kybella® injections, spaced several weeks apart.
Is it safe?
Yes. Kybella® has been FDA approved since 2015 and is totally safe.
Will it hurt?
You might feel a sting at the injection site or some tingling. Afterward, you could see some temporary redness, swelling, or bruising, which should fade quickly. Beyond that, the discomfort of a Kybella® treatment is minimal.
What will my results look like?
Each of our procedure pages has before and after slides that give you a good idea of what Kybella® treatment results look like. They’re stunning! Remember, it takes time for the body to break down fat. Once you’ve completed your full series of Kybella® shots, you should see the results in approximately four to six weeks.
How long will my Kybella treatment last?
Kybella®’s results are permanent! In all likelihood, you will need no further treatment.
