What is Kybella?

As we age, many men and women experience an unsightly accumulation of fat on the chin and neck area, contributing to the appearance of a double chin. And until recently, the only way to correct this cosmetic issue was to have invasive surgery, such as a neck lift or neck liposuction.

Fortunately, that is no longer the case. Kybella is an incredibly effective, brand new treatment option designed to reduce your stubborn double chin. Its active ingredient is deoxycholic acid – a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat.

When properly injected beneath the skin, Kybella causes the breakdown of the unwanted fat cells. Once reduced, those cells are no longer able to store or accumulate fat – providing you with a smoother and more youthful-looking appearance.

Kybella Treatments

Your treatment for among the best Kybella Redondo Beach has available begins during your initial consultation at Marcus Medical, when our highly trained and experienced specialists compose a custom treatment plan designed to use the injectable medicine to help you improve your chin profile.

During your actual treatments for Los Angeles Kybella, we will begin by cleaning the area thoroughly and applying ice or a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort. We will then place a series of strategic injections beneath the skin to reduce the unwanted fat cells causing your double chin, with the entire process lasting approximately thirty minutes.

What to Expect After Your Kybella Treatments

After your Kybella injections, you can expect to feel some soreness, heaviness, fullness and swelling in the treatment area. This is your body’s natural reaction to the medicine and is considered completely normal. Throughout your brief recovery period, you will be advised to apply ice to reduce swelling, take Tylenol to minimize any discomfort and avoid strenuous activity and exercise for at least 24 hours.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

At Marcus Medical, all of our Kybella treatments are entirely customized. As such, the number of treatments you’ll need depends on how much volume is present underneath the chin, as well as the final results you desire. With that said, the vast majority of our clients require between two and four treatments spaced four to six weeks apart to achieve their ideal outcomes.

You can likely expect to see a noticeable improvement in the appearance of your chin at two weeks after your first Kybella injections. The greatest results will most likely appear at six weeks after your final treatment. At that point, any fullness will be reduced, and you’ll possess a smooth, sculpted and youthful jawline.

When performed by one of our specialists at Marcus Medical, your Kybella outcomes can be beautiful and safely administered. However, any substantial weight gain after your treatments may alter the results, so it’s important to maintain your weight moving forward to preserve your new appearance.
