Bringing out your natural beauty

A double chin, known as submental fullness, forms for a number of reasons. While it may seem as though it is an aesthetic concern that arises simply because of weight or unhealthy lifestyle choices, this is not always the case. Instead, an individual can be at risk for developing a double chin because of their age and genetics. Even if an individual is healthy, a double chin can still develop. Submental fullness is a particularly disheartening cosmetic issue because it can make an individual appear older or heavier than they are. A double chin can potentially make someone feel self-conscious about their profile and avoid having photos taken of themselves. However, feeling self-conscious about your image because of a double chin no longer has to be an issue.

Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable that enhances the appearance of an individual’s profile by dissolving fat cells beneath the chin. The result is a sleeker, more youthful jawline - without the need for surgery or downtime. If you are ready to improve your profile by slimming your chin, undergo a Kybella treatment at Bespoke Rx of Tampa, FL. Please schedule a consultation to talk about Kybella treatments with Bespoke Rx or call us at (813) 203-6196.

What Is Kybella?

What Is Kybella?

A double chin is an aesthetic concern that affects many men and women as they get older. Before Kybella, the concern was usually treated by utilizing surgical procedures that required anesthesia, incisions and lengthy recovery periods. Kybella is a far less invasive alternative to surgical procedures such as a neck lift or liposuction. The unique injectable essentially melts away fat cells to create more defined facial contours.

Kybella consists of deoxycholic acid, a substance that occurs naturally within the digestive system. Deoxycholic acid helps in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fats. During a Kybella treatment, when the synthetic form of this acid is injected into the fat beneath the chin, it effectively destroys the unwanted fat cells. It restores the jawline into a more defined appearance.

The destroyed fat cells are disposed of by the body during the first several weeks after a Kybella treatment. Once the fat cells have been destroyed, they will not regenerate because the body has a predetermined number of fat cells that become fixed after adolescence. As long as a patient maintains a healthy weight, the double chin will not return because fat cells that were not treated will not expand.

Prices for Kybella vary from patient to patient. Prices average $1000-2000 per treatment, and can vary in how many treatment sessions are needed to attain optimal results.

Kybella candidates

Kybella is an exceptional treatment for men and women struggling with their appearance because of a double chin. Kybella works best on patients who have a good amount of skin elasticity still present, which will ensure the skin conforms to its new contours. While Kybella does have a skin tightening effect, it is not meant to be viewed as a treatment for concerns related to severe skin laxity.

You are well-suited for a Kybella treatment if you struggle with any of the following:

  • You are self-consciousness about excess fat under the chin
  • You have a double chin that makes you look older or heavier than you are
  • You maintain a healthy weight but still struggle with a double chin
  • You are wary of undergoing the knife to rid your profile of a double chin

Some contraindications may prevent you from undergoing the treatment. Kybella should not be performed on women who are either pregnant or currently breastfeeding. Patients should also not have an active infection in the treatment site. During an initial consultation, your Kybella provider will review your concerns and determine if Kybella is a suitable treatment.

The Kybella treatment

The Kybella treatment

Your Kybella treatment may begin with the application of a topical anesthetic that will help mitigate any discomfort. When the topical anesthetic has taken effect, your provider will begin to inject Kybella into your chin via a fine needle strategically. The sites for injection will be marked up in a grid pattern, which will ensure consistent, natural-looking results. The number of Kybella injections you will receive will depend on your goals and the size of your treatment area. Kybella is a relatively quick treatment. The treatment takes approximately 15 to 20 minutes to complete. Because of the topical anesthetic, there is minimal discomfort associated with the treatment.

Kybella recovery and results

You will be able to return to work and other daily activities immediately after your Kybella treatment. Kybella is considered a ‘lunchtime procedure’ because it can be performed quickly, and patients can return to work right away. However, some temporary side effects may be experienced, including tenderness, swelling, redness, bruising, or hardness beneath the chin. These side effects are normal and typically subside within a couple of weeks. If you experience any pain, you can take over-the-counter pain medication. You will be provided with thorough aftercare instructions that will help minimize the side effects.

Kybella immediately starts taking effect once injected, but it will take some time until your results are noticeable. It will take several weeks for your body to flush out the unwanted fat cells naturally. Typically, final results are noticeable after four to six weeks. Kybella results last for many years. However, maintaining your results will require leading a healthy lifestyle. If a healthy lifestyle is not led, the remaining fat cells could expand and result in a double chin forming again.

Is there anything I should do before or after my appointment?

Because we have blood vessels throughout our face, avoiding bruising cannot be guaranteed. However, the following can help you to minimize your risk of bruising and swelling. For 72 hours before and after treatment avoid NSAIDs, aspirin, fish oil, vitamin E, St. John's wart, and alcohol. Do NOT stop taking prescription blood thinners. Avoid exercise 24 hours before and after treatment.

When you have a double chin, it can be damaging to your self-confidence. An uneven jawline is an unflattering attribute that can make someone appear far older or heavier than they are. Sure, surgical procedures exist that can remove unwanted fat cells from the region, but they come with a cost, such as a long recovery time and the potential for scarring. Thankfully, Kybella, a revolutionary injectable treatment, exists that dissolves fat cells beneath the chin to create a slimmer and more youthful profile.
