The first and only injectable approved by the FDA to destroy fat cells, Kybella® is the go-to non-invasive treatment that melts submental fat stored under the chin and jawline. BASIS Medical & Aesthetics in Delray Beach, Florida is the best provider to administer Kybella® to destroy submittal fat!
Kybella® is the ideal treatment to permanently remove Submental Fat from the chin area while avoiding surgical alternatives like liposuction and face-lifting procedures. Here are some other reasons why we recommend this treatment:
Kybella® is the only non-invasive (non-surgical) procedure that permanently destroys fat cells in the target area, with no need for sedatives or anesthesia.
Kybella® destroys a portion of fat cells in the target area with each treatment, making the process progressive and results customizable.
Kybella® utilizes a natural process to permanently destroy the targeted fat cells so they can no longer store fat, essentially eliminating the possibility for the reformation of fat in the area.
Because Kybella® uses a natural process to kill fat cells, they eventually get metabolized by the body and eliminated naturally.
For men and women who carry extra fat in the “Submental Space”, liposuction or a face lift can be too aggressive of a procedure for their needs or age. But Kybella® is easy to perform and customizable to meet your unique goals.
One Kybella® treatment takes just 15-20 minutes to perform within a 1 hour in-office visit, allowing you to get this procedure done practically anytime, with no downtime.
Before Kybella®, the only way to destroy fat cells permanently, and change the profile of the submental space (facial area under the jawline) was to undergo invasive surgery such as liposuction or a neck lift. These neck tightening procedures require general anesthesia or sedation and can offer too much correction for the patient’s needs. This is the only non-invasive treatment that permanently destroys fat in the submental space without using local anesthesia or sedatives. In addition, your injector can gradually customize the degree of fat reduction over a series of appointments to reach the desired goal.
Kybella® is a synthetic version of one of the bodies naturally occurring molecules, called Deoxycholic Acid. The compound received FDA-Approval in 2015 to be used on the submental space for fat reduction. The purpose of this acid, physiologically, is to break down fat cells during digestion and aid in absorption. It works by destroying the membrane surrounding the fat cells so that the contents “pour out”. The acid renders the cell useless, and unable to store fat any longer. Over several weeks, the body naturally metabolizes the destroyed cells resulting in permanent fat loss in the target area. The natural elasticity of the skin will then help tighten the area, further restoring a youthful profile.
Kybella® is FDA-Approved to permanently remove fat under the chin, known as the “Submental Space”. The procedure can help reduce the overall fullness of the area, helping to eliminate the look of what is commonly referred to as a “Double Chin”.
The beauty of Kybella® is that the results are permanent. Because Kybella® actually destroys the fat cells in the target area, they are unable to accumulate, or store fat, in the future. Individual Kybella® treatments are done no less than 1 month apart so that results may be measured between treatments to determine whether more treatments are necessary. Kybella® may not be administered more than 6 times and often takes less sessions to achieve optimal results.
Kybella® is an excellent procedure for anyone who has additional fat stored under the jawline or chin. For people who have a “fat pad” in the Submental Space, their profile can make them look older than they are, or make them look heavier than they are. This is also referred to as “Submental Fullness”. Final results can help dramatically improve the appearance of the overall facial profile. Kybella® is ideal for someone who still has healthy elasticity in the area, and is an excellent choice for those too young for more invasive surgical options, such as a chin lift.
During a single session, Kybella® is administered via a series of small injections located throughout the target area. Your board-certified injector will determine just how many injections you will need during a single session, which can vary from as little as 20 sites to as many as 50. This is dependent on your unique physiology and goals. A session usually lasts anywhere from 15-20 minutes. Subsequent treatments must be administered no earlier than 1 month apart. The number of overall treatments needed to reach your goals will be determined by your injector.
Most people experience little to no pain, but all needle-administered injections have the possibility to cause discomfort. A topical anesthetic can be administered to help reduce or eliminate pain involved with the injections. You may experience some moderate pain or swelling after your session, but side effects are often minimal. For a complete listing of indications, please visit their official product site.
