Just a bit of extra fat in the upper neck area may result in a “double chin,” which is typically undesired for both women and men. The additional pockets of fat underneath the chin (also known as the submental area) can be caused by weight fluctuations, aging, or genetics that lead to a weaker chin and jawline for an undefined profile. Nurse practitioner Kellie Lewis is happy to provide a new technique to get rid of neck fat at Avanti Medical Center. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), KYBELLA is the first nonsurgical treatment for submental fat. The active ingredient in KYBELLA is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, which works similarly to the body’s natural DA to dissolve and absorb fat cells. Once it has been injected below the chin, you may see a noticeable reduction in fat. When the fat is destroyed, the cells cannot regenerate so you can enjoy your new, slim profile and defined jawline for years to come.
OUR KYBELLA INJECTION TECHNIQUE
The best candidates for KYBELLA injectable treatments have additional fat in the upper throat (submental area) that causes a double chin or unwanted volume. This injection treats resistant pockets of fat that cannot be removed with normal weight loss techniques due to genetics, aging, and other conditions. If you are at a healthy weight, but diet and exercise have not worked to reduce the fat in your upper neck, KYBELLA may be the correct treatment for your needs. The procedure takes about 15 – 20 minutes to complete. Some patients may only need a single treatment to reach their goal while others may require a few injections spaced 3 – 4 weeks between each appointment at Avanti Medical Center.
How much does KYBELLA cost?
The price of KYBELLA treatments will vary based on how many appointments you need. During your initial consultation, a personalized KYBELLA treatment plan will be made to match your goals. A member of our team will also discuss payment options with you in your first appointment.
How does KYBELLA work?
Deoxycholic acid, the active ingredient in KYBELLA, works to break down and destroy fat cells in the submental area. Once the fat cells are eliminated, these cells cannot grow back. This is why additional KYBELLA injections should not be necessary once you have met your goal.
Can KYBELLA be used to treat other areas of the body?
Currently, KYBELLA is only available to treat the area below the chin. KYBELLA has been proven to effectively reduce the fat in the upper neck that creates the appearance of a double chin. KYBELLA hasn’t been approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) for any other areas of the face or body.
Am I eligible for a KYBELLA treatment?
Before your consultation, you will answer a few questions to make sure you are a candidate for KYBELLA treatments. You need to be at least 18 years old, not pregnant or breastfeeding, and you should not have an active infection in or around the treatment site. Prior to the process begins, you are encouraged to be open about your medical history and health concerns with your injector so that they can decide if you may be at risk for an adverse reaction from the treatment.
How many treatment sessions will I need?
During your consultation, a personalized treatment plan will be developed to meet your needs. Usually, patients receive between 2 – 4 KYBELLA treatments to achieve their goals. KYBELLA injections must also be made around one month apart. You shouldn’t receive more than six injections.
