What is Kybella?
Kybella® is the one and only injection approved by the FDA for the sole purpose of reducing the submental fat below your chin. In other words, it eliminates or significantly shrinks your double chin.
With a few simple Kybella injections from Ideh at Star Rejuvenation & Wellness Center, you can enjoy a sleek, contoured facial profile despite weight gain and decreased skin tightness from aging. Double chins are also genetic, so they often don’t go away with a healthy lifestyle.
How does Kybella work?
The main ingredient in Kybella is replicated from an acid that your body already produces. Its true form is found in your stomach and helps you digest the fat from your diet. When Kybella is injected into the flesh under your chin, its active ingredient destroys the submental fat cells in a similar way.
Once Kybella destroys these cells, they are permanently disabled. That means the results are permanent.
Depending on the size of your chin and your goals, you may need up to six injection sessions to see the results you want. Star Rejuvenation & Wellness Center creates a treatment plan for you, with appointments spaced at least one month apart.
Am I a good candidate for Kybella?
Kybella is noninvasive and has few risks when a licensed professional administers the injections. Because it’s low risk, many patients are good candidates.
You are a good candidate for Kybella if you:
- Are 18 or older
- Have a double chin
- Feel self-conscious about your double chin
- Don’t feel comfortable getting surgery
- Eat well
- Exercise regularly
- Aren’t pregnant
- Have never had facial surgery and don’t plan on it
- Don’t have any infections
A discussion with Ideh at Star Rejuvenation & Wellness Center can help determine if Kybella is right for you.
How should I prepare for my Kybella injections?
Kybella treatments don’t require surgery, so there aren’t many steps you need to take to prepare. To reduce your risk of getting an infection related to the treatment, you should wash your face before you arrive. You should also avoid taking blood-thinning medicines like Ibuprofen to avoid bruising.
If you’re looking for a permanent solution to eliminating your double chin, Star Rejuvenation & Wellness Center can help. Call Star Rejuvenation & Wellness Center to learn more about Kybella or book online today for a consultation.
