adobestock_67283194Have you heard about Kybella treatments yet?

Kybella is a revolutionary new injectable that’s designed to target and eliminate fat cells in the submental (under chin) tissue. This FDA-approved treatment has been shown to reduce the appearance of double chins and loose neck, all while providing contouring under the chin.

In short, if you’ve been having trouble losing fat under your chin, or in the mid-upper neck it’s time to let Kybella step in and help.

Kybella 101

Kybella is now available at the Laser Skin Care Center in Long Beach, California. We’re proud to offer Kybella treatments to clients who are looking to eliminate the appearance of a double chin (fullness immediately under the chin in the upper neck). Ideal clients will already be committed to a healthy diet and exercise regimen, and understand that Kybella does not prevent the formation of new fat deposits associated with weight gain.

Kybella is an injectable that contains deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring compound that’s designed to eat away at fat cells. Kybella is currently only approved by the FDA for submental fat tissue.

Before you go for a Kybella treatment, you’ll need to keep this information in mind:

  • You may experience slight burning, tenderness, possible bruising and significant swelling at the injection site. These side effects are perfectly normal and tend to disappear within a week or two after the initial treatment.
  • Most patients only need about 2-3 Kybella treatment to see excellent results. Though, often great improvement can be seen after a single treatment. However, the number of Kybella treatments you might need will be determined estimated during your consultation.
  • You may need to consider a skin-tightening procedure once you’ve achieved your ideal results. Kybella can often, but does not always tighten the skin in proportion to the fat loss, which means patients with double chins may sometimes need to follow up with a procedure that improves the excess skin, particularly in those with more skin laxity.

If you have any additional questions about the Kybella process, don’t hesitate to ask them during your Kybella consultation at Laser Skin Care Center!
