Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable treatment used for jawline contouring by reducing submental (under the chin) fat. The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule in the body. Here’s the science behind Kybella:
- Fat Dissolution: Deoxycholic acid is a bile salt that plays a role in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat in the digestive system. When injected into the submental area, it disrupts the fat cell membrane, causing the fat cells to rupture and break down. This process is known as adipocytolysis.
- Inflammatory Response: Once the fat cells are disrupted, the body’s natural inflammatory response is triggered. This response includes the activation of macrophages, which are immune cells responsible for cleaning up the cellular debris from the destroyed fat cells.
- Lymphatic Drainage: The lymphatic system then helps carry away the remnants of the destroyed fat cells, leading to a gradual reduction in submental fat volume.
- Collagen Production: Kybella injections can also stimulate collagen production in the treated area. Collagen is a structural protein in the skin that provides firmness and elasticity. An increase in collagen can contribute to improved skin tightness and contouring.
- Gradual Results: Kybella treatment typically requires multiple sessions, with each session spaced a few weeks apart. The fat reduction occurs gradually over time as the body naturally processes and eliminates the damaged fat cells. This allows for more controlled and natural-looking results.
The science behind Kybella demonstrates its efficacy in reducing submental fat, resulting in a more defined jawline and improved facial contour.
Kybella jawline contouring offers several benefits, making it a popular choice for individuals looking to reduce submental fat and enhance their facial profile:
Kybella is a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment. This means there are no incisions, sutures, or significant downtime associated with the procedure, unlike surgical alternatives like liposuction.
Kybella is FDA-approved for reducing submental fat, commonly referred to as a “double chin.” It is specifically designed to target and eliminate fat cells in this area, resulting in a more defined jawline and neck.
Kybella treatment plans are tailored to individual needs. The number of sessions required can vary depending on the amount of submental fat and the desired outcome.
The fat reduction process occurs gradually over several weeks, allowing for natural-looking and subtle results. This gradual reduction also minimizes the risk of sagging skin that can occur with rapid fat loss.
Discomfort during and after the procedure is typically mild and manageable. Providers may use numbing agents or ice to enhance patient comfort.
Kybella is administered via injections, eliminating the need for general anesthesia, which can be associated with surgical procedures.
Most individuals can return to their regular activities within a few days after a Kybella treatment. While some side effects like swelling, bruising, or redness may occur, they are generally temporary.
Kybella can provide a significant boost in self-confidence and self-esteem by enhancing the overall facial profile and eliminating the appearance of a double chin.
Once the desired outcome is achieved, the results are long-lasting, as the fat cells targeted by Kybella are permanently destroyed and eliminated by the body.
We can assess your specific needs and create a personalized treatment plan.
KYBELLA® Jawline Contouring uses deoxycholic acid, a naturally produced molecule found in the body that contributes to the breakdown and metabolism of dietary fat. By injecting this product directly into the fat under the chin, fat cells are permanently destroyed interrupting future accumulation in the area.
Initially, the chin is marked for specific placement and application of the product. A series of injections are then placed directly into fat under the skin for future fatty tissue destruction. It may take anywhere between 4 to 6 sessions scheduled every month to achieve your desired results.
By destroying fat cells at the source, KYBELLA prevents future recurrence of fatty tissue to return to the area. You will notice a sleek profile of the chin, with a sharper, contoured definition to the jawline.
This is a minimally invasive procedure that requires very little downtime. Normal activity can resume right away post treatment. Most guests have noticed increased swelling, bruising, redness, and hardness caused by inflammation under the chin. This is a typical reaction and will fade in a few days to a few weeks.
