We have many patients in Las Vegas complain about their “double chin”. Many times it becomes more prominent after extreme weight loss, however it’s also hereditary. If you’re unhappy, self-conscious or embarrassed by fat under the chin, also known as submental fullness, Chic la Vie Med Spa has the solution for you! Kybella® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment designed to destroy fat cells in the treatment area, under the chin. As a result, you’ll have an improved profile. This is a non-invasive procedure so you don’t have to undergo surgery. If you eat well and exercise, but submental fullness does not go away, Kybella is the solution for you!
Before starting treatment, our Physician Assistant will examine your chin area to determine if KYBELLA® is right for you. Then, your provider will determine your treatment plan and tailor the amount of fat under the chin and your aesthetic goals.
At each treatment, your provider will administer multiple small injections under your chin. The injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes once the area has been prepared for injections. Depending on the amount of fat you have under your chin, the exact number of injections will be made to achieve your desired profile.
You’ll likely have some swelling, bruising or numbness after your KYBELLA® treatment. Though unlikely, be sure to inform us if you develop an uneven smile, facial muscle weakness, or difficulty swallowing. As these effects have been reported by the medical studies provided by Allergan, the manufacturer.
Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Your healthcare specialist will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. Each KYBELLA® treatment session is given at least 1 month apart, and you should not receive more than 6 treatments. In clinical studies, 59% of patients received 6 treatments.
