Kybella Treatment in Venice, CA
Kybella is an FDA-approved, prescription injectable designed to treat unwanted submental fullness. Also known as “double chin,” submental fullness occurs when excess fat accumulates in your chin area, which can make you look older than you are and become a source of frustration and embarrassment.
According to an article titled “Personal (Self) Perceptions of Submental Fat Among Adults in the United States,” published in January 2019 by Dermatologic Surgery, “Accumulation of submental fat (SMF), which contributes to loss of submental definition, can result from genetics or lifestyle factors, and can be resistant to reduction through diet and exercise.” The researchers who published this article concluded that “excess SMF can have a substantial negative effect on a person’s feelings of attractiveness and behaviors.”
Kybella can treat moderate to severe submental fat. True Jewel Cosmetic Center proudly offers Kybella injections to clients in and around Venice, CA, who want to get rid of their double chin without having to undergo surgery.
How Does Kybella Work?
The active ingredient in Kybella is synthetic deoxycholic acid, a synthetic molecule that ruptures fat cells underneath your skin. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in your body that’s produced by the liver; it plays a role in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fats. When injected into your chin with the specific goal of destroying the fat and improving your profile, Kybella permanently destroys the fat cells in that area.
What makes Kybella a fantastic solution for individuals with a double chin? Once those fat cells are destroyed, they can longer store or accumulate fat. This means that once a noticeable reduction in fullness underneath your chin has been achieved, no further treatment is needed. You can enjoy the results of a more sculpted jawline and a renewed sense of self-confidence for years to come!
What Areas Does Kybella Treat?
Kybella can be used both on-label and off-label.
- On Label: On-label is a term that means that a prescription drug is being used for its intended purpose—in this case, to eliminate your double chin by dissolving the excess fat. When used on-label, Kybella treatments are administered as multiple small injections in and around your chin. The official website for Kybella notes that “a single treatment consists up to a maximum of 50 injections.” It’s also worth noting that Kybella’s clinical studies showed that “subjects experienced visible results in 2 to 4 treatment sessions.” On average, each Kybella treatment session lasts 20 minutes. The number of treatments you need will depend on how much fat has accumulated under your chin. Treatment sessions are administered approximately every four weeks; you should not receive more than six treatments total.
- Off Label: Since Kybella works so well to treat double chin, it has been determined that Kybella can also be safely used for off-label purposes. Off-label means that this injectable can treat other areas across the body where unwanted fat cells exist, specifically in the thighs, abdomen, and bra area. At True Jewel Cosmetic Center, our patients in and around Venice, CA, benefit from having the option to explore these additional treatment options in order to achieve their desired aesthetic outcomes.
