Say Goodbye to Your Double Chin with Kybella!

If you are in search of a non-surgical solution to virtually eliminate submental fullness, also known as a “double chin,” you’ve come to the right place. Desert Eyesthetics is proud to offer Kybella, a safe and effective injectable that will leave you with a beautifully contoured profile! You’ll love the stunning results!

How Does Submental Fullness Develop?

A double chin, otherwise known as submental fullness, is a common condition that develops when adipose tissue, or fat, collects in a pocket below the chin, known as the submental fat pad. It can affect both women and men and usually results from the natural aging process, genetics, or weight gain. The stubborn exercise and diet-resistant fat often poses a cosmetic concern.

What Is Kybella and How Does It Work?

Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable that virtually eliminates moderate to severe fat below the chin. Its active ingredient is identical to deoxycholic acid, a naturally-produced molecule in the body that helps break down and absorb dietary fat.

When injected, Kybella immediately gets to work. It physically destroys the fat cells in the area, with noticeable results. After treatment, the body clears the destroyed fat cells through its natural metabolic processes. These fat cells are no longer able to accumulate fat, meaning the treatment’s results are permanent!

Are You a Candidate for Kybella?

A candidate for Kybella is typically a woman or man over 18 who wants to eliminate submental fullness without surgery or downtime. Dr. Garcia will evaluate your unique needs to ensure that Kybella is right for you. Make sure you let her know about any previous surgeries, cosmetic treatments, medical conditions, and any medications you take. If you have an infection in the area, you’ll need to have it addressed before a Kybella treatment.

What Is the Kybella Procedure?

During your initial consultation, Dr. Garcia will examine the area around your chin and tailor the treatment to the amount of submental fat and your aesthetic goals. While most of our patients don’t require any anesthetics, you may opt for a numbing cream for your comfort. The treatment involves a series of injections using a fine needle. Kybella works discreetly, contouring the under-chin area and dramatically improving its appearance with minimal to no pain, discomfort, or downtime!

What Are the Expected Treatment Results?

Many individuals report results after just one treatment. However, most see a gradual improvement in the following weeks, with the full, stunning effects apparent after the complete treatment series. Most of our patients enjoy a significant reduction in their submental fullness, with a dramatically improved chin profile and jawline.

After being treated with Kybella, most of our patients report feeling younger, happier, and less conscious about their appearance. Many also said they were no longer bothered about their double chin and felt less overweight.

Keep in mind that the treatment results may vary from individual to individual.

How Many Kybella Treatments Sessions Will You Require?

The number of treatments you require will depend on your unique needs. Most of our patients require 2-4 treatment sessions spaced approximately eight weeks apart. However, you may receive up to six treatment sessions.

After you achieve your desired aesthetic results, you will not need any further treatments. Once the fat cells are destroyed, that double chin will be gone for good!
